Versions of the Fluid Space Drive (abbreviated).

Main page

 

(This page is a work in progress)

 

 

Version 0: Propeller in a box, motor/propeller attached directly to the box, not very efficient but adequate for satellite positioning and useful for easily demonstrating the principle involved.

Version 1: The original idea, propeller/motor bump into the forward hull, returns to start position by reversing propeller.

Version 1.2: Propeller/motor pulled/pushed/jerked to original position by sudden pull (no reversing of propellers necessary)

Version 2: Some experimentation showed the addition of an air brake (Fig 5) improves the propulsion

Version 3: Further experimentation demonstrates propulsion can be obtained without a propeller

Version 3.a: Improvements

Version 4: Air brake without additional mass.

Versions 0 to 4 make use of how a gas behaves in a Turbulent Flow environment, but it is possible devise method of propulsion using Laminar Flow as described in version 5.

Version 5: Laminar Flow Fluid Space Drive (not tested)

 

 

All versions (0 to 5) as described in this page are mechanisms inside a pressurized inflated container made of Kevlar (Fig 1) or other suitable material with a power source attached or with power being provided by the spacecraft that is being propelled.

Version 0: Propeller in a box.

Motor/propeller attached directly to the box (Fig 2), not very efficient but adequate for satellite positioning and useful for easily demonstrating the principle involved (See DIY test)

Version 1: The original idea

Free floating propeller/motor (fig 3) bump into the forward hull, returns to start position by reversing propeller (see test)

Version 1.2

Propeller/motor (fig 4) pulled/pushed/jerked to original position by sudden pull (no reversing of propellers necessary)
