100 years ago the Wright brothers took their first flight everyone thought they are crazy and human will never fly or leave Earth.
100 years later we are flying and we went to the Moon 60 years ago and all the sudden we stopped and we got used to the idea of sending satellites and probes to Explorer other planets which it will take years and years if not 100 years more . example the Cassini satellite was launched in October 15th 1997 to explore our solar system nearly 20 years later in September 15th 2017 entered the planet Saturn orbit on it’s final Approach ending its mission . Not to downplay it’s important, we have learned a lot from the Cassini satellite it was a major achievement for all Humanity and for science. but now we need to move to a different level we need to develop better and faster engines to take us there not in months and years but maybe in days or shorter.
In order to do it need three essential elements.
- Better payload delivery system from earth to orbit cost-effective reusable and easy to maintain.
- Vehicle can take cargo and crew from orbit to their destination planet quicker and safer, Need to provide safety from radiation and it has its own gravity field generator to support the crew for long-Duration in space etc . Some of us know the lack of gravity in space can wreak havoc on the human body, Astronauts usually exercise between 2 to 3 hours everyday to keep fit because lack of gravity.
- when reaching the designated Target or Planet the ability to sustain the crew via Landing vehicle and ability to provide their own food and oxygen and use the resources around them.
