Well, imagine that on the 100th anniversary of the moon landing of Apollo 11, in 2069, we managed to create a series of colonies at nearby stars on a maximum of 20 light years away.Then you will get the following series of consecutive events:
1.Again to the moon-2021 AD
2.Landing on Mars-2024 AD
3.The Mars colonization Experiment-2025 AD
A.Diaspora of humanity to Mars
B.Transmitting powerful satellites from Mars to Earth, the moon and Venus
4.Venus colonization Experiment-2026 AD
5.Transformation of Deimos with a colony in the style of O’Neill-2027 AD
6.Transformation of Phobos with a Bishop ring colony-2027 AD
7.Sending a colonizations chip to Ceres Vesta and Psyche-overshine of energy from Venus-large-scale construction Bishop ring colonies-2029 AD
8.Sending a ship from Mars to mercury with assistance from Venus-2030 AD
9.Post Singularity-2031 AD (Super human Artificial intelligence)
10.Sending Constant 1G Meertaps light sail sheep to Kbos, retrieving the Voyagers, New horizons and other satellites-as a precursor interstellar mission-2032 AD
11.Steer Constant 1G meertapered light sailships from Mercury to 150 stars within 20 light years of Earth-2034 AD
12.Laser Light sailboats reach the stars-2038 -2054 AD
13.Creation of trading posts-with ships that know how to make full return trips-2042 AD to 2074 AD
At that time, the multi-taper light sailors have to be replaced by similar systems in a orbit of the star systems, powered by their own laser beams in the Terawatt range, fed from self-obtained solar energy-to the laser sailors in a Some step between the stars to let sail.
Similar to motorways, separate jobs will need to be created for safety.Interstellar trade will have to follow prescribed jobs between the stars. These will be combined in groups of smaller interplanetary vessels coupled with larger ships that are used over and over again. Not.
Interstellar return vessels are a variant of interplanetary return ships that are brought into orbit with planetary boost missiles, linking to a return vessel, and traveling under superior conditions without having to bring all the hardware and supplies yourself To maintain conditions on the road.
This proposal comes from the well-known moon Explorer, Edwin Aldrin, who as a graduate of MIT in the years 60 was also known for his great contributions to the skill of bringing in space and linking spaceships.
Persons who book a passage on an interstellar return ship will have to bring their own stocks in their own interplanetary vessel for 10 days.The waste is sent to the owners of the return vessel responsible for all material stocks. Redundant waste can be purchased from departing or arriving return ships of the same target.
The recycling of waste on board the return vessel ensures all the supplies on the ship for the longer term.The draining of laser energy from the beam ensures the energy needed for the acceleration. Modulating laser energy can also be used as a means of communication between vessels.
The ships follow clearly prescribed routes through the space.These routes have a prescribed road and timetable, similar to train lanes and departure times.
In the stars, loading and unloading stations are operating at interstellar speeds.This is where most space waste, if not all space waste, will be generated. This will be in controlled conditions in the place where the ships are controlled and serviced. Planetary ships are also discharged and provided here and returning ships are loaded and served here.
The two runways of starships for each star-the outer orbit-and the inner orbit-for each of the 150 destinations are separated with the diameter of the solar system.The starships will accelerate 1,082.82 days with 1G. This brings them from standstill to 95.051% of the speed of light over a distance of 2.15 light years. Only 650.195 days will be spent aboard the ship.
During the first and last 40 days of the trip, the departing spaceship accelerates perpendicular to the direction to the target, accelerating to planetary speeds of up to 5.7% of the speed of light.Then the ship follows an arch of 90 degrees over 100 astronomical units with a radius of 63, 66AE.
Arriving spacecraft come in at 127, 32AE from the outside track and make a similar 90 degree twist where they slow down from 5.7% of the speed of light to planetary speeds, but inward from the other side.
It is immediately clear that the two streams of ships, if they throw something outside that goes faster than 5.7% of the speed of light, this goes completely past the target and is lost in the interstellar void.
Furthermore, we see that if in the last 40 days of the journey the ship releases something from the vessel during its circular motion to the goal, that those objects tangential follow the arch of that moment and thus fly along the system concerned.This goes on until the ship reaches its planetary speeds.
As said, if a ship arrives in orbit at the side of the target, it will accelerate from 5.7% to 95.051% of the speed of light.
For Alpha Centauri acceleration is constant, without moment without acceleration as the star is only 4.30 light year away. For the 149 other stars, the quickeless period may vary to (20-4.3)/0,95051 = 16,51745 year in Star time.With V/c = 0,95051 will t = 15,51745 * SQRT (1-0,95051 ^ 2) = 5,1317 year ship time.
This comes on top of the two acceleration times and gives the total travel time for the further road stars.
With 12 lasers along the 12 lanes for each star system, ships can depart every 90 days and arrive every 90 days.
3600 jobs, 1800 outgoing, and 1800 inbound for 15 star systems within 20 light years.When you leave at the ‘ Grand Central Station ‘ there will be a return ship every 14.4 hours somewhere in the air.
The return ships will be long cylinders with mounted plates that give up to 6 degrees of freedom of movement of the Steward Platform to compensate for the acceleration and thus give a constant gravitation through the plate.A flexible tube in the center of the plate holds a Maglev system that allows vehicles to move between plates. Planes can also move between the plates. Small spaceships moor on the outer side of the cylinder. Larger spaceships and large supply vessels moor on the half-dozen scaffolding.
The ship rotates the fastest when it is in orbit, or during the acceleration-free period, and the slowest times the gears.
During acceleration, the plates are directed towards the net gravitation and the arms are raised or lowered to increase or decrease the rotation.Similar to an art ice skater.
There are 3600 courses and every 90 days a train (from return ships) leaves the station (or arrives at a station).Travel time varies from 2,165.678 days star time for Alpha Centauri to ADS 7251 is a binary star system 6.16 approx. 0.07 light years of the sun.Both stars in this further system are of almost equal clarity, but ADS 7251 A, which is 0.06 magnitudes (1.2 times) brighter than ADS 7251 B, is a red dwarf of spectral type M 0.0. The latter is spectral type K 7.0 and slightly farther away. 8,233.621 Days of Startime -so, this varies from 24 ships for Alpha Centauri for both directions to 92 ships per direction. Enumerating there are 11,616 ships outgoing and 11,616 ships inbound. 1,768 ships on each station -25,000 return ships in total. 200 smaller planetary ships with 150 to 200 persons each on board, worn in the bulbs to the arms. Larger numbers of smaller vessels, tenders for the large ships, lakes near the chambers aboard the Stewart plates during transport.
This is the same number of interstellar ships as the airlines on Earth are now using.We have 25,000 traffic planes that transport 10.7 million people a day to 106,000 locations around the world.
Here we are talking about 25,000 ships, each able to cater for 300,000 people -a total of 7.5 million people.500,000 people depart from the solar system, and (potentially) 500,000 people come back again. In practice, exotic goods and talents will come back from the borders to the center, but there are also many by travelers.
This is 2.43% of the human population each year, and 1/3 out of 6% each year, looking for adventures elsewhere.So, with this level of service, the prices of interstellar travel will be relatively high relative to the income.
As the number of people grows by 0.9% per annum, this is sufficient to keep the human population confined in a solar system that grows further.
The big demand for travelers is whether on the road space debris is going to be encountered at a rate of 95.051% of the speed of light, or even with 5.7% of the speed of light.Interstellar space is rather empty, but not perfectly empty.
One way to deal with this is to steer a sail forward and explore the space around every job to predict what is on the track.While everything moves quickly relative to a ship that continues with 95,051% of the speed of light, the things themselves will move relatively slowly relative to the stars. Something of 0.001% of the speed of light. It is therefore quite simple to forward a cleaning sail intended to wipe away space debris from the orbit of the starships, and then make a map of the space debris, similar to the way we now follow asteroids around the Earth -and then such Change the arrival that the space debris is missed correctly, or a ship slowing down something that does not occur exactly with space debris. The same technology can be used to pick up people and retrieve things that are ‘ overboard ‘ cases.
