    Group IV: Electromagnetic mass drivers for use as interorbital engines, as devices to launch lunar material into space, and as tugs for the retrieval of asteroidal material. Goddard develops centrifugal pumps for rocket engines. Germans test rocket-powered interceptor aircraft Me V-2 rocket fired from Pennemünde enters space during ballistic flight. First operational V-2 launch. V-2 rocket launched to strike London. Arthur C. Clarke proposes geostationary satellites.

    A lunar colony could build aluminum-oxygen rockets. The propellant is not as good as the usual stuff but it can be made out of moon rocks. Combined with your idea of using a lunar space elevator, which skips the worst part of using discount rockets, maybe the moon is actually a good place to build probes and satellites. ence issues. The incorporation of once-diverse fields adds strength and additional relevance to geoscience studies. World of Earth Science is a collection of entries on topics covering a diversity of geoscience related interests— from biographies of the pioneers of Earth science to explanations of the latest developments and advances in.

    It was thought that the RAIR design could perform two or three times better than the Bussard system, and achieve perhaps 10 or 20 percent of the speed of light. “And, as far as we can tell from the Bruno data,” Sally said, “that Gaijin flower-ship was pretty much a RAIR design: exotic-looking, but nothing we can’t comprehend.

Meyer. This will come as no surprise to long-term students of lunar base proposals. The major reason is that traffic models for lunar base show that by far the largest budget item in mass being moved around between the Earth and Moon is rocket propellant.

Lunar propellant could also be used to launch inter-planetary space flights. Based on the above, I conclude that given an established mining and manufacturing presence on the moon, and giving enough power, an aluminum-oxygen rocket engine might use locally-sourced fuel for jaunting around the moon.

However, I do not expect that this technology could be used to power ships from the moon to other destinations. In this paper it is proposed that not only oxygen but also metals obtained by the reduction of lunar silicates (as well as asteroidal and planetary soils) be used as a rocket propellant.

Metallic aluminum has long been a component of solid rocket propellants, anywhere from 14 to 25% powdered aluminum is commonly used. Production, power, and propulsion technologies for using oxygen and metals derived from lunar resources are discussed. The production process is described, and several of the more developed.

Rocket propellant is the reaction mass of a reaction mass is ejected at the highest achievable velocity from a rocket engine to produce energy required can either come from the propellants themselves, as with a chemical rocket, or from an external source, as with ion engines.

The most common type of aluminum used in solid propellant formulations is powdered spherical aluminum 5 to 60 mm in diameter and usually constitutes 14% to 20% of the propellant by weight.

The Space Shuttle's Solid Rocket Boosters, for example, contain over million pounds (, kg) of propellant and produce over million pounds (   Both aluminum and oxygen are readily available in the lunar regolith, and such a rocket could easily perform lunar liftoff, lunar landing, or departure from a hypothetical L5 colony for Terra (using a lunar swingby trajectory).
