NASA has developed a budget option for a flight to the moon

46

The NASA space agency has come up with a low-cost way to get to the moon. It does not require significant fuel costs, while delivery is quite fast.


This is reported by the American edition of Business Insider.

The agency decided to patent the delivery method. In this case, the effect of the patent does not apply to a delivery vehicle, spacecraft or any equipment. The "highlight" of the new method lies in the choice of the flight path, which is why it was patented.


Saving shipping costs and reducing the amount of fuel needed will help fulfill NASA's planned dark side of the moon research program.

Actually, during the flight, an unmanned spacecraft will need fuel only to put it into geosynchronous orbit, where telecommunications and other satellites are usually located, hovering over a certain point on our planet. The distance from the Earth's surface to this orbit is only a tenth of the way to the Moon.

To overcome the rest of the path, the device will use not fuel, but the gravity of the Earth and the Moon. Using these forces, the spacecraft will make the transition from a geosynchronous orbit to a lunar one.

Having reached the moon, he will have to get to its dark side. In this place, interference from the Earth will not interfere with the study of cosmic radiation.

    Is that a Super Trampoline from Nas?

      Surprisingly, the first in the history of mankind to reach the lunar surface was the Soviet spacecraft "Luna-2" and it happened - today's schoolchildren will not even believe, September 13, 1959 !! Now it's 2020 - and humanity, by and large, simply swelled, lost, fought ..., completely mired in consumerism and progresses only in the release of advanced urinals! Elon Musk correctly said that the Queen is ashamed of humanity ... and not only the Queen! Even Jules Verne never stops spinning in his coffin!

        Oh Colleague, to begin with, technology has reached its limit. Rockets with chemical engines, that is, based on a redox reaction and jet ejection, are no longer capable of anything. This is called the limit. Next, you need to move on to other physical and chemical principles ... achievements and breakthroughs in which so far. With the current level of technology, a person cannot fly farther than orbit. Automatic stations with descent vehicles and no more. Moreover, there is not much difference from the lunar rover to the rover, well, the electronics have become a little more compact, and so on little things with detectors and analyzers. All. The same limit in jet aviation, nothing better and faster than the aircraft of the seventies, has not been done. At least in the airframe and engines. Therefore, leave Rogue Verne and others alone. There is no cold nuclear fusion, there is no anti-gravity engine, a levitator, etc. The scientific and technological revolution has stopped, there is no qualitative leap, so quantitative indicators are improving with a creak. Russia made a small breakthrough in heat-resistant materials, which made it possible to step over the hypersonic limit and make a compact high-power reactor, but even here everything is known and only slightly moved the edge of the limit. Ionic engines are rubbish that did not live up to expectations, etc. Cosmic radiation requires lead sarcophagi, there is no normal oxygen generator from carbon dioxide exhaled by astronauts, and it is beyond our strength to carry oxygen, water and food. The issue of cryosomal has not been resolved, the body does not give in ... it dies, etc. Therefore, like this. Flintlock guns were used for several centuries, and spears and arrows for millennia. There was the 20th century of discoveries, but everything, kerdyk, vimans are only in a fairy tale, well, the truth is, the pilots of the saucers fly and scoff ...

          In addition to the fact that technologies have reached their limit, people have also "matured", youthful romanticism has disappeared, which was the 50s-60s, when everyone, like children, was happy about the first flights into space. We thought tomorrow we would walk along Venus in the heavenly bushes. Yeah, schaz. It turned out that there is nothing useful and interesting for modern civilization.
          Now the people think - and what the hell we need, how much it will cost and what we will get from it.
          In short, a word for fundamental science.

            Gravitational maneuvers - the theory was developed by N.I. Kibalchich.
            In particular, his gravitational sling is often used in practice. But for Kibalchich, both deceleration and the transition from orbit to orbit due to gravity are also worked out. And Luna-3 has already used this.
            So not the pioneers of NASA ...

          These are all fairy tales for the poor .. I heard something like this about 15 years ago about the PC .. that those process has reached its limit and blah blah blah ..
          But PCs are being built newer and faster .. and no one can reach space achievements even the level of the last century .. But the same flights to the Moon / Mars are not at all transcendence!!

          Well, actually. the opposite is logical .. when there is no need to fly somewhere far, then new breakthrough technologies are unlikely to appear on their own .. You can sit with a flintlock gun and tell everyone that this is the limit ..

          I'm sorry, but the goal determines funding and priorities. at one time, steam locomotives also achieved unprecedented perfection. but due to economic feasibility, they were replaced by less advanced but more promising diesel locomotives at that time. and in modern cosmonautics, there is a noticeable desire to squeeze everything out of the previously invested resources, and the belief in a miracle is about to be invented by pepelats and we whack on Mars. Now, there are also promising breakthrough space technologies, but they are portrayed as economically unjustified; for great purposes, tourists cannot be sent to them. The current goal of space is near-earth orbits and PR. For this, breakthrough ones are not necessary.

          People come up with technology. Or they don't come up with it.
          Or they come up with iPhones instead of delivery routes into deep space.

      NASA has developed a budget option for a flight to the moon
      After China has made many one-time missiles, it is high time for the United States to come up with a flight for 3 rubles: "by the power of thought, once and to any point in space" (according to Kin-dza-dza)

      Yes, the point is in the trampoline, and in the patent for the FLIGHT TRAJECTORY! And this is only according to calculations that have not been tested in practice!
      The Americans decided to cook with their "cabbage". Interestingly, if someone rushes along this route, they will also begin to sue and impose their own sanctions ?!

    How can you patent a "flight path" what kind of nonsense? Let's patent a way to breathe air, and if someone breathes like that without asking, we will take money from him wink And let's say feints in football. We need to find out who is the author and ask the other players why they play without permission? So it is possible to patent the trajectory of a ballistic rocket. This is already something incomprehensible in the world is happening belay

      But seriously, from my time I was in the organizing committee of the International Space Olympiad for schoolchildren in Korolev, where high school students from a number of countries studied space, visited enterprises, MCC, communicated with real astronauts ... There were ours, Americans, Greeks, British, Australians and some others.

      So that's it. Our guys, planning to enter Baumanka, made presentations at the level of almost the second or third year.
      And (especially well remembered) Boy Scouts from Australia, together with American geniuses, made a presentation of a new space station for tourists with a swimming pool and a cinema bully

          They patented the trajectory, as I understand it. Although, it seems to me, also a dubious patent. But if the license costs $ 5000, then it's easier to pay and get data.

    And when we launch the Luna-25 station in October next year, we have the opportunity (and this was recently confirmed by the Glavkosmos company) to send a couple of domestic small spacecraft with cameras as companions to the Moon:

      It is necessary for the Apollo landing sites to be captured by the Russian probe,
      precisely by Russian equipment.
      And then the American probe captured the landing sites of all Soviet lunar stations,
      the tracks of the Soviet lunar rovers and the lunar rovers themselves. Here NASA believes.
      And when the same probe from the same height took off the Apollo and rover ruts, they do not believe. smile
