I'm very very concerned about this. They showed obviously passing on chemical rockets and plasma rockets but settling on the technology of the Orion project????????? Are you serious?
Now I understand this is a fictional account of how things may pan out, however, the writers of this show did employ scientists to discuss the various theories right? Ok, create RAMA (the O'neil cylinder) that makes total sense. What is extremely concerning is selling people on the idea of using this "bang bang bang" infantile method of propulsion to send our race to the stars. Doing so only will perpetuate the idea we are a type 0 species, incapable of thinking outside the box.
So what's my point? Is it me or is the scientific community that devoid of thinkers and shakers? The only thing we need is Zero Point energy. Why was that not included in this series?
It is time for everyone to get our collective head out of our collective butts, wake up from our mental slumber and start realizing we have an infinite amount of free energy available to us at any point in space, especially in space given that it is ~3 degrees K above absolute where the Z-point field is easily accessible. Using this technology allows the separation of inertial mass from gravitational mass and the spinoff being inertial dampeners. In other words we could make a 90 degree turn at 60,000 kph and not even feel a thing. Because the zero-point field will exert a magnetic Lorentz field.
So, to summarize using an analogy, this show advocates driving from LA to New York using a buggy and a horse giving back kicks every 20 feet to keep up and increase its momentum, something which would be foolhardy given the people that also use the roads don't like horse droppings everywhere? is that about it? OR use a scientifically proven, super fast, ultra clean, free energy source?Time for everyone to do some homework. Please start wih Dr. Tom Valone:
I had been doing some research on Adolf Hitler and research his scientist was doing on heavy water. kind of same ideal as the horizon project. just a thought.
I am also wounder why this show nothing into massive research into human hibernation technology . Patrice terms we already know to do it for a few hours that with spend peanuts on it not even spend hundred million dollars on it. If we spend trillion dollars on it we likley having next decade at least.
What about moving Earth out way. Some science test found way to do it. They honestly think NASA scientist at least attempt it when we have the technology. For that matter move speed things up little bit move the Earth lot father away faster. Maybe Neutron star hit fake timeline making Earth out of the way entirely.
