TRUMP SOON TO BE CROWNED SPACE EMPEROR

FORGET MARS, TRUMP WANTS NASA TO VISIT JUPITER'S MOON EUROPA AND EXPLORE THE SOLAR SYSTEM

Neither candidate spoke much about space during the 2016 election, but just before Trump was elected president, he outlined a plan for NASA to move from an Earth-monitoring agency to one devoted to exploration. When Obama took office, he told NASA to ditch the plan to revisit the moon and concentrate on sending humans to Mars in the 2030s, but Trump has set the space agency only one goal. The president-elect wants NASA to explore the furthest reaches of the solar system by the end of the century, according to Space Policy Online.

“I will free NASA from the restriction of serving primarily as a logistics agency for low Earth orbit activity… Instead we will refocus its mission on space exploration.”

Trump’s new space plan, still a little short on details, focuses on eliminating bureaucratic waste, promoting a private-public partnership, and setting ambitious goals for NASA that will force the agency to stretch itself. It’s the same kind of goal Kennedy gave NASA in 1961 when he instructed the agency to catch up and overtake the Soviet Union to win the space race.

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”

In the weeks and months leading up to the election, neither candidate had much to say about space and the presidential debates didn’t even mention NASA. After the second debate, SpaceNews sent both Clinton and Trump a series of questions asking about their plans for NASA, which was followed up by a questionnaire from Scientific American a few weeks later. Clinton praised NASA and dropped the names of space super stars like a pro while Trump gave short vaguely worded answers devoid of any specifics. Then, shortly before Election Day, the new president-elect recruited former Republican congressman Robert Walker, who chaired the Science, Space, and Technology Committee in the 1990s, to help draft a plan for NASA. Trump’s new space policy, heavily influenced by Walker, is designed to coordinate public and private efforts to maximize American efforts to explore the entire solar system. That includes mining valuable minerals from the asteroid belt and visiting Jupiter’s moon Europa, perhaps the best place to find alien life near Earth. Trump plans to bring back the National Space Council, last in operation under George H.W. Bush, explore deep space, and encourage commercial partners to build a new economy in low Earth orbit, Walker told Mother Jones.

“If you’re looking at technology that looks for the solar system, you are then likely to move toward plasma rockets, toward nuclear-powered rockets, certainly toward solar sails.”

The space council, headed by the vice president, would be charged with making sure each partner, NASA, the military, and commercial partners, are all playing their proper role. The new president-elect also has plans to abandon climate research, transfer Earth monitoring funding from NASA to NOAA, and strengthen the U.S. military’s stance in orbit. Trump’s administration plans to eliminate many of the redundancies facing the American space program today. NASA is currently building a massive rocket known as the Space Launch System (SLS), but there are private companies also working on heavy rockets capable of deep space travel. Ditching the NASA launch vehicle and relying on private spaceships would free up federal funds for other space-related projects, which would reduce costs, create jobs, and promote growth. With better cooperation between the government and private companies, federal funds could be better utilized to help America explore the solar system, U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine, who is on the short list to head NASA, told SpaceNews.

“The United States of America is the only nation that can protect space for the free world and for responsible entities, and preserves space for generations to come. America must forever be the preeminent spacefaring nation.”

SLS might have been worth it if NASA was willing to let a few people die in order to build it. The biggest reason for the stagnation in space exploration right now is its pussification. Thank God Musk isn't enough of a cuck to be discouraged by a single rocket blowing up.

No and yes. The inspiration came when I was studying some of Teslas more esoteric wanderings. He didn't talk in code, Tesla, but he used jargon from outside of his field, lots of sanskrit words. Long story short, I'm exhausted and should had never said anything, but I had the vain hope that someone would help meme me out of this autistic hell where I have all the information to make america supervillains again, but the only people willing to "help" me are greedy fucking jews who want to attach a fucking slave collar around my NECK! You don't collar a fucking saxon brdd american. Fuck you bruce, fucking kikes.
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_wave

Standing waves, and an understanding of the concept of polarity are the things that people are missing. They're greedy fucking jews though, leading the universities. They just want ENERGY, fuck them, they'll never get what they desire, and they'll never figure this out because their desire is blinding them from truth.
I sound like a sperg probably, but I'm so full of rage. How do I focus this rage? We have all the tech right now to do this, we have for years, just nobody cross trains, all specialist fools. Memorize as much as can, only able to memorize one tiny field, LEARN NOTHING. Fuck them, any polymath could do this, and the best part? I found the missing details in the art of our own people.

I rambled long enough. If I can get high energy tomorrow, I'll break out my stick welder and find my mercury and see what I can manage on building something, I know i have some copper laying around too and maybe my neighbor can spare some mamgnets, but I'll need some fancy glass I cannot afford for some of it or I'd have mercury gas flooding the block.

Hillary wasn't thrown in prison, but Trump did win. Perhaps Kek broke his wrist and sent him to Room 11 as a way of telling him it would go down in the eleventh month, November, and that things would eventually happen in time.

Non/pol/ack lurker here. Just a concerned researcher.
Great unexpected changes tend to bring great emotions. For example, when something they consider bad and unexpected happens, people become stressed and act erratically guided by emotions (something that you can see by the recent elections and the left meltdown).
You see, one of the things that this new millenia has is the vast realization of the open market of ideas. You guys are obsessed with who manufactures the ideas, but you never take a grasp on how big the intellectual production is today, and how easy is to meme anything with the correct megaphones. Even with the controlled media, you can find almost any possible idea, only needing to meme it to make it mainstream by social pressure. Even more, ideas don't have to reflect reality at all. If you can meme and idea or a thought before it becomes real, then you can absorb and avoid the reactions that this new reality might bring.
Why not meme the parallels between Kennedy and Trump? I mean, we will not talk about their political views, hell no, JFK is still a saint in the eyes of many, we don't want to associate THAT with Drumpf, but let's give little tips about how similar they are, i mean, maybe both like going out in roofless cars and anyway there are lots of maniacs out there and we don't control guns so anything bad can happen, i mean with the recent protests and the children, who knows xD…
Remember the big global scandals after Snowden? Me neither. Some random fires here and there, but everything is fine. Once the next scandal came in, we all forgot about it. Look how fucking much we care about our fucking rights! We all already "knew" this was happening, even without evidence, to the point that when it came down we mostly acted as the peaceful herd we are.

We did some tests (as part of Operation Plumbob, if I recall correctly) of how the pusher plate would hold up.

As to the shaped charges, research didn't die, it was classified and became what the military calls 4th generation nuclear weapons design. They can't test above ground but there are plenty of still classified tests, the existence of which was disclosed, into the 1980's. This isn't getting into the extensive computer modeling done by ORNL's supercomputing facility.

If the political will existed, the project absolutely could be resurrected. It's not lost technology.

It's technically possible, there just needs to be motivation and support to fund the venture.

It took the Juno spacecraft ~5 years to reach Jupiter.

A manned mission to an uninhabitable moon would be intense. I don't think as a species we have developed the psychological fortitude to make that successful, not yet. Medically we could probably induce comas for that length of time but that's kind of cheating.

Apparently water is a good radiation shielding. Radiation halves every 7 cm, so a few hundred feet down and you'll have less radiation from Jupiter on Europa than the sun on earth.
This is the main problem with Mars, since it has no magnetic field to shield from solar radiation, and Jupiter emits a lot of radiation as well.
Europe has lower gravity, increasing industrial efficiency and making further space travel easier, huge quantities of H2O and thus hydrogen for energy and oxygen for breathing, and Jupiter herself can be exploited for further hydrogen.
Additionally, Jupiter has a lot of nearby asteroids and other moons for mining.

Lucas Richardson
Lucas Richardson

This.

We can get to Mars but it'll be a slow boat with not a lot of cargo. Orion will truly open up the solar system.

You CAN launch Orion from the surface. The trouble is laws and other countries being pussies. That said, using Skylon and Space-X style launches to cheaply place the materials in orbit for construction is a viable, though less favorable, option.

My ideal solution? A series of Orion launches- the only planned Orion launches. Say about a dozen large designs, only two or three of which are spacecraft meant to carry humans or cargo regularly.

The other 9 or so launches are just cargo:
nuclear thermal/electric hybrid propelled ferries/tugs
infrastructure for asteroid mining
infrastructure for a moon base, space station in lunar orbit, a propellant/propulsion unit depot in GSO, and an enormous station in low Earth orbit
infrastructure to manufacture future Orions in orbit

The idea is that we use one YUGE push to get the infrastructure up there, then we use Skylon or Space-X launches to lift up bits like electronics, equipment, and personnel. The heavy stuff we build in space from now on.

The advantage of my proposal that outweighs the disadvantages is that it VERY RAPIDLY yields benefits and we can start enjoying a space-based economy almost immediately versus the slow-build option. We all saw the ISS get smaller and less ambitious as construction costs mounted. If we can put all the infrastructure and people up AT ONCE then we can enjoy at least some benefits within a year's time. That means re-election and public support to continue the project- the timescales are more in-tune to the election cycle and the public's attention spans.

Spaceplanes are great for a cheap and easy way to get shit into orbit. They can be used to build bigger ships than would be capable of boosting off our surface here, and they'd be much better suited to building space stations and the such. However for anything else spaceplane's uses start to drop off beyond near-Earth orbit.

Also Orion in itself is kinda shit. Good thrust, but not good for precise orbital maneuvers, that's also not mentioning the fact that you're detonating a nuke behind you just to accelerate. Fusion or just fission powered engines would probably be several times better than Orion.

Henry Sanders
Henry Sanders

I mean, have you seen the original calculations?

The above ground testing as of 1951 and after were responsible, among the 3.8 million Americans born in that year, 1,000 cases of thyroid cancer. That's because iodine isotopes were the real concern insofar as fallout goes. So given that, we're seeing 0.00026316% of the population contracting cancer thanks to launches.

This ignores that we've set off 510,300 kilotons worth of yield in terms of above ground testing and global cancer rates have been traced to industrial pollutants and lifestyle as far greater causes of cancer than the testing.

Then we get into options for mitigating fallout dispersion patterns, limiting fission products produced by the propulsion units, etc.

So looking to Freeman Dyson's original calculations and the conclusion of 0.1 to 1 fatal cancer per human on Earth per launch assuming launch from the Nevada desert with no efforts to control for fallout… that's not too bad.

So what's your gripe? It won't kill your population, you aren't launching something that'll generate a devastating EMP, the nuclear devices are VERY small, and a coal-fired powerplant will shit out more uranium and thorium directly into the atmosphere in a year than an Orion launch would.

We build coal power stations all the time and they are 100% guaranteed to increase cancers and a host of other problems for populations running into the thousands depending on the density of urban area surrounding the plant. Are you this vehemently opposed to coal power too or just awesome nuclear pulse propulsion?

Because if you launch from orbit, the thermonuclear detonations will still scatter radiation all over the planet. If you do it from the dark side of the moon, you have the entire moon between you and the Earth. Also the whole EMP thing.

Remember, those were isolated tests conducted in the middle of a desert. These would be multiple nukes. They calculated that 10% of the population would die everytime you launched a nuclear pulse rocket from the surface.

Sources, I demand sources for your "10% of the population" figure

I have mine! Straight from Freeman Dyson himself pp. 54, 101-6, 182, 194, 223, 227-231, 234-37, 252

Here's the relevant part, paraphrased from "Radioactive from bomb-propelled spaceships" a still-classified report from June 2nd 1959:
"If you spread this radioactivity over the earth more or less uniformly and use this number of 10,000 person-rads per death it worked out to something like a thousand people got killed every year by the existing bomb tests. This meant about ten people would be killed per mission from Orion."
- Freeman Dyson

It goes on to enhanced radiation devices, meaning neutron bombs. You can produce more neutrons than just those produced by fission and therefor have a far cleaner bomb. Calculations with the neutron bombs reduced deaths by a factor of 10:
"What Livermore could do was something like a factor of ten. This was called the neutron bomb, production neutrons without fission, and neutrons you could easily absorb. That would have mean killing one person per mission."
-Freeman Dyson

So that leaves us with a pretty acceptable fatality rate, given how many people tend to die in big projects anyway. There are means to minimize the distribution of fallout and computer models for weather and ocean currents that didsn't exist then - they could allow an even greater gain in safety.

As to
the whole EMP thing
We're talking detonations of at MAXIMUM 15kt, 4kt maximum in the upper atmosphere or even Earth's magnetosphere. That leaves us with VERY small EMP effects. Starfish Prime was a 1.4 MEGATON test, so don't go spouting data from that. Orion would likely conduct a burn somewhere over the Pacific Ocean using its 4kt pulse units so as to minimize EMP.

Also
thermonuclear detonations
specifically means fusion bombs. Fusion bombs are more efficient in terms of fissionable material used per energy output and fallout per energy output but the feasibly-sized Orion designs didn't use even fusion-boosted devices, much less thermonuclear ones.

Von Braun, later in life, eventually caved and admitted Orion was/is a great idea.

David Bailey
David Bailey

Obviously we would use thermonuclear detonations then if they're more efficient. We can make some fairly small bombs nowadays.

You're probably right anyway. This is shit I vaguely (mis)remembered from the wikipedia page from reading it several years ago.

Thomas Rodriguez
Thomas Rodriguez

Also, forgot to welcome you to the ranks of those supporting Holla Forums's favorite spacecraft propulsion system.

Ever hear about the BATTLESHIP version of Orion? No exaggeration whatsoever here, it would have been the most powerful single war machine every built.

26 meter diameter at pusher plate
76 meters long
120 crew
6 hypersonic "landing boat" re-entry vehicles
12 "space taxis"
3x 5in Naval gun turrets
500 missiles with 20 megaton yield each
cryogenic gas powered gatling guns or chemical lasers for point defense

Mind you those naval guns fire small nuclear charges called "Casaba Howitzer" which is basically a nuclear shaped charge creating a spear of lithium plasma moving at ~0.05-0.1% of c.

Oh, and the missiles would naturally not all be 20Mt city killers, some would be MIRV'ed, Casaba Howitzers, etc.

Also the vehicle would be as capable of travel around the solar system as any Orion design of that size would be. That means an impossibly powerful warship with the ability to travel to Saturn's moons and back in under a year.

A IRL Star Destroyer capable of completely leveling a handful of continents and destroying any hard target (read: bunkers, ayy lmaos, etc.) that can't somehow survive being hit by a few kilos of lithium plasma moving at relativistic speeds.

No worries, I get autistic about Orion and I hate the knee-jerk detractors spouting nonsense. It's fear that killed our best hope of really making the Solar System OURS. I believe we should fight that ignorance with knowledge.

Speaking of best hopes, can you imagine the MAGA potential of Orion? Think about it, get hard, then write about it on Trump's website. Greatagain.gov

I would like to note that while according to the data you've given me, obviously it's fine to launch maybe one of these. Launching multiple though probably isn't such a good idea, especially since "spreading the radiation over the earth uniformly" is a fairly impractical assumption, especially for blasts close to the surface. What about the environmental impact? Surely nuking the pacific isn't so good for the ecosystem? I was going to say the Japs too, but they're used to radiation by now.

Cooper Johnson

Christopher Allen

Well, consider how irradiated the Pacific already is from waste disposal, accidents, and testing. Then consider the lifespan of the creatures that're likely to be affected. Outside of whales and a generation of long-lived deep sea fishes, nothing lives long enough to really get crazy cancers. I say this as a die-hard "coral hugger" who won't eat certain fishes for environmental reasons.

Launching multiple will be just fine. Launch from a point where weather and currents won't spread it terribly badly and we're good to go.

Seriously, think of the number of deaths from coal-fired power plants again. Think of the number of deaths from any other mega project. They're going to happen, it's just that we can quantify these and we know the upper limits on damage done.

Think about the number of deaths in construction of conventional powerplants, oil or natural gas extraction, ANY kind of mining, cattle farming (there are tramplings pretty regularly), wind farm construction (they happen), and even stupid shit like DIY roof repair.

Now consider those annual deaths held up against something like Orion and what it can do- it's peanuts!

also no worries, mang. I got your point.

Isaiah Rogers
Isaiah Rogers

Yeah, you're definitely right. Especially with the coal thing. Coal power plants are absolutely abhorrent. I bet you'd even be better off just burying spent nuke rods in the dirt under a nuclear plant than using a coal plant because then at least you aren't aerosolizing the material over a 5 mile radius.

It's unlikely, but considering just how many stars exist there's probably a LOT of planets that can support life if you consider that they're a tiny tiny percentage of a number so huge humans have a hard time imagining just how many planets we're talking about.
