A new schedule for 2023, includes a high altitude drone from http://www.jpaerospace.com
This is John M. Powell’s atmospheric transfer station, where passengers deplane from the ground launch Ascender to board the Orbital Airship.
JP is at his best when describing aspects of his team’s more than 200 launches.
Dr. Hossenfelder, my fav presenter of difficult concepts, ably gives us both sides now until the end of this century. However, Elon Musk is right because of factors missed by Dr. Hossenfelder, namely the expansion of private space as described in The Space Trade Update. http://www.thespacetrade.com or on Nook and other online platforms and available in print on demand at Amazon.
Full video from JP Aerospace Mission Number 200 follows in several days. Catch all of @JohnMPowell1 videos through http://jpaerospace.com. They’ve sent more than 18 thousand student experiments to the edge of space.
The latest in plasma engine development from #JPAerospace. This is one part of the baby stage of the plasma engine that is being designed to propel all Ascender airship flights to orbit using the Symphony plasma hybrid engine.
The whole ness requires coordination. In 2011, with wind gusting to 45 knots, JP tripped just at launch, and broke a rib. Notice the people sitting on the right hand side of the launch bag. Without them, the wind would have pushed the balloon to the right while inside the bag, making balloon release problematic and unpredictable.
This is traveling music to the edge of the cosmic sea, and was part of the inspiring work of JP Aerospace that impelled me to write how we’re going to thrive in space, and I put it into the book, The Space Trade Update. http://www.thespacetrade.com . Please enjoy the revelations. – L Paul Turner
Let me know what you discover @bloonwhisperer.
On top of Cle Curbo’s 1st Place win in Sci-Fi last year (2021), his next Sci-Fi book is a fantastic thriller, Quest for Sylvane. If you’re looking for action, this one has it. Here’s more about it, the back cover blurb.
To prevent alien rule on Earth, Sylvane Langtree enlists Bert Bostin, an innocent and naive Earthman. Speeding to warn Watchers Council of Earth’s takeover, Sylvane is abducted by Farian, who insists she is the missing third goddess of his planet, Esthar. The ultra-secretive Rieceh grab Sylvane and whisk her to distant beta-Goltim to lure Farian. Evading Rieceh agents on beta-Goltim, Sylvane flees, only to fall into a trap set by Farian, who sends her to sleep in an ancient castle on Esthar until Queen Iiana grows in power. Bert rescues Sylvane but is caught by the Hag. As Sylvane transforms into goddess, she realizes that only her power can save the Earth.
