In the video she gives the example of getting to Jupiter in a year, or Pluto in around three years instead of the fastest thing we have taking 12 years.

Or Mars in about 2 months.

    The link is wrong. It returns Ancient Artifacts In Egypt That Egyptologists Do Not Understand.


    If it is true what say we all collaborate and advertise the first vacuum cleaner store on Mars. We could send them to Claude's store and they will never know the difference since nobody has ever been to Mars. Joking

    Interesting, that's the same amount of time it took Columbus to cross the Atlantic.

    Okay so we can get to Mars in 2 months because these space ships are traveling so fast. Lets hope they develop some quick navigation system to avoid some object that may be in its path, that was not there at time of launch. Can see the headlines now Acme spaceship collides with fly by meteor !

    Ok, just checked it and it works my end, but here is another link that should work.

    Yep, l know that you are joking about the first part.

    Yes, and arriving at a lush, green environment with consistent rainfall and a lot of ferns, ahem,....well, maybe not the ferns, they are,...never mind.

    Yeeees, fusion cat get a spacecraft or robotic one, up to 70km/s, the last pluto one, (which was the fastest one we have) got up to 30km/s, but that used Jupiters and other planets gravity to increase speed.

    That also took 12 years, since it had to go around several planets to get out there. Fusion just points and goes, so point it at Mars and get there in a short space of time.

    Most astranauts should be able to handle 2 months in a tiny space without going ga ga?

    I take it that this is the same fusion technology that has been going to power the world in 10 years time for the last 50 years.

    It'll just knock over all the pieces, poop on the board, and strut about like it's won anyway.

      Yes Shane, please clarify, there seems to be some Confusion over this.

        Ok, l rewatched the video, and this is more for thrust than staying in one place trying to make electricity and frying the containment walls.

        Electrical power from the thrust is a byproduct or not its main purpose, and space being a vacuum and -270.15 degrees Celsius, or very close to absolute zero, are too more advantages to making this, well a very cold, natural vacuum with a constant stream of particles are three things Earth based systems don't have.

        This appears to be a duck to water in space, and a dodo on earth based versions.
