DSS at 140 Thousand Feet
This is John M. Powell’s atmospheric transfer station, where passengers deplane from the ground launch Ascender to board the Orbital Airship.
More High Altitude Instruction from the Sky Inventor
JP is at his best when describing aspects of his team’s more than 200 launches.
Musk is Right
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.
MHDs with Ablative Graphene Electrodes
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.
Watch High Wind Balloon Launch
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.
Watch “Balloon Flights to the Shores of Space” on YouTube
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
