Our paper “Direct Fusion Drive for Interstellar Exploration” has been accepted for the Workshop of Interstellar Flight that will be held at CUNY City Tech, 13-15 June 2017! The workshop is organized by the Institute for Interstellar Studies and City Tech’s Physics Department and Center for Theoretical Physics.
We will present the latest results from our NASA NIAC work on DFD design as well as applications to interstellar missions, including:
- A mission to 550 AU to perform gravitational lensing imaging of exoplanets;
- Flyby missions to the nearest star;
- A mission to go into orbit about a planet orbiting either Alpha-Centauri A or Alpha-Centauri B.
This is awesome, congrats! Hope that there will be a video recording of this!
Is the paper available somewhere, or will it be published somewhere after the Workshop?
Hi Elmar – the paper has been submitted to the JBIS, the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, if it is accepted for publication there we will post about it! Thanks for your support!
