If this could be fact..I'd do it for free

Space is a very cold and lonely place.
I much prefer a warm and sandy beach.
Ask the astronauts that went to the moon.
The worst part is the journey there and back in a soda can.

Around the ship would be three rings, each ring held to the ship by rotating magnets as the rings spin they would create a electrical field and form gravity. We could also use the electric from the charges for backup systems in case of failure. I cant link to anything regarding this but would like to hear from people who know more on this than me, and with the tech we have today could it be possible?


what makes the rings spin?

I think its somehow using this theory..... ??

Step 1: Invent spaceship that can create gravity with rotating magnetic rings.
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit.

ok what about this. are there any particles from the sun that we can take a closer look at? something other than what is used in a solar panel.

good question...I just imagined three rings... first turns clock wise, the other counter clockwise, and the clockwise.. the thing with ideas and no Illustrations is what sucks...I'm not that talented lol I'm truing to stimulate your imagination... If the gravity could be solved, would this theory work?
You should do a couple of things:

1. Spend some time Googling (searching) and you'll find out a lot more about this stuff than you apparently know. There are many ideas.

2. If you're too lazy to do that, here's something easier and simpler to do...watch this video about VASIMR:

Your theory of gravitation isn't really the main topic of that video, but this guy Zubrin not only has an excellent imagination, but also the technical knowhow to describe the required technology for interstellar travel. As others said the three rings and electricity won't create gravity. But if you make the spaceship large enough in the shape of a large donut, you can spin the whole ship and the resulting centripetal acceleration inside the ship will simulate gravity. That's what Zubrin describes and that will work, I suspect.

This was even the design used in some movies. Here's NASA's drawing of a concept:

A ring centrifuge would provide partial gravity for crew’s health.
This is how you create simulated gravity.

Zubrin also discusses propulsion methods in that video, and he seems to know what he's talking about, though he's also highly critical of a propulsion research project NASA spent lots of money on, called VASIMR.

Here is a link to NASA's Nanosail-D program. You might find it interesting.

www.nasa.gov...


After spending more than 240 days "sailing" around the Earth, NASA's NanoSail-D -- a nanosatellite that deployed NASA's first-ever solar sail in low-Earth orbit -- has successfully completed its Earth orbiting mission. Launched to space Nov. 19, 2010 as a payload on NASA's FASTSAT, a small satellite, NanoSail-D's sail deployed on Jan. 20. The research team continues to analyze the orbital data to determine how future satellites can use this new technology.

Your theory is very interesting, I was going to say that if you thought of it, somebody else must be thinking along those same lines, and then I recalled something I saw on Gizmag.com .

here is the link to the article.

"NASA studying solar-electric propulsion for “space tugboat”


Here is the article, you will have to click the link for the pictures.

Last year, NASA announced it was seeking proposals for mission concept studies of a high-power solar electric propulsion (SEP) system that could be used in a "space tugboat." Such a ship would be used ferry payloads in low Earth orbit (LEO) into higher energy orbits, including geosynchronous Earth orbit (GEO) and Lagrange point one (L1) - saving on fuel and the use of expensive secondary boosters. NASA also anticipates an SEP system could be used to propel spacecraft into deep space for science missions and for the placement, service, resupply, repositioning and salvaging of space assets by commercial operators.

Following the announcement, NASA awarded five companies four-month study contracts totaling approximately US$3 million, with a maximum individual contract award of $600,000. The selected companies were Analytical Mechanics Associates, Ball Aerospace & Technologies, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman. Each company is tasked with providing a final report that will help identify technology gaps and look at possible solutions using SEP systems. NASA will use the studies to plan and implement a future flight demonstration mission that will test and validate key capabilities and technologies.

While conventional chemical rockets will still be required to deliver payloads into LEO, NASA says the advantages of using SEP to efficiently transport heavy payloads into higher energy orbits has been shown in multiple studies. High power SEP systems would be used to power ion drives, which create thrust by accelerating ions using either electrostatic or electromagnetic force.

Along with efficiently delivering payloads from LEO to GEO and L1 - the point where the gravitational pull of the Earth and the Moon cancels each other out and is therefore seen as a potential assembly point in space between the Earth and the Moon - NASA says SEP systems could also facilitate missions to near Earth asteroids and other destinations in deep space.

One of the contract beneficiaries, Northrop Grumman, has announced it is working on alternatives to the typical solar array approach and that its concept will be scalable to 300 kW. Its study, along with those of the other four selected companies should be due in a few months.

I hope we will see these theorys turn into reality in my lifetime.
