Dear readers, as promised here’s the second part of ASPS activity update. The great news is that after F449 the Association has created what seems to be the lucky thruster who’ll make it into space! The prototype name is F432 and it has the following specs: Input power: 250W Thrust: 250 mg ( measured at less […]Read more "F432: the space is getting closer – an update about ASPS prototypes part II"
Dear readers, today I’ve got interesting news about ASPS work. First of all, the Association has found external collaborators with whom it has worked on its latest official prototype, F242, to make it more suitable for testing in vacuum chambers and, of course, for space flight. Substantially, modifications have been made to make the thruster […]Read more "An update about ASPS prototypes part I – F449"
Dear readers, in this post I’d like to share with you ASPS official method to achieve propellantless propulsion. The procedure I’m going to describe has been used in early ASPS prototypes (SC23) and it has been recently posted on NasaSpaceFlight forum by Laureti himself. After 2005 the Association discovered a more efficient way to produce thrust and they […]Read more "How to violate Newton’s Third – ASPS early method"
Dear readers, Here is an update about F242 written by Laureti in the latest issue of ASPS official periodical Nova Astronautica: The PNN prototype F242 is operative again. I’ve tested it several times in late 2016 and that’s why there is a consistently delay in the publication of Nova Astronautica issue n.150. Practically I’ve had to […]Read more "F242 is operative again"
Dear readers, today I would like to propose you another selection of Laureti’s comments about the rising awareness -by other scientists- that EmDrive might not work by recoiling on quantum substrates, (that is, for now , the most accepted hypothesis even if it’s basically science fiction) as they shyly start to mention the fact […]Read more "About E.M thrusters orbital tests"
Dear readers, first of all an update about ASPS Calmagorod laboratory status after the earthquake: the structure has been declared unusable. The building fortunately sustained some minor damage and it does not require big reparations. However, ASPS has to wait authorities green light in order to enter the lab and until that moment the special ballistic […]Read more "What PNN needs for the take off"
Dear readers, I sadly inform you that PNN testing lab was almost above the epicenter of the earthquake (6.0 magnitude) that hit central Italy on August 24th. I’ve sent an email to ASPS but no replies by Laureti so far. I don’t know neither if ASPS members are safe nor if the lab is still usable […]Read more "Earthquake"
