Why go to mars like it’s 1995 if artificial gravity can be practical by 2024? Skip Intro: 2:07 Math that supports this design: 7:13 Why Gravity is Important: 5:59 …

  1. I truly like your ideas and the necessity of artificial gravity for any space mission outside earth orbit. I am seeing some obvious problems with the plan in your video, which I think can be modified.

    First of all, you talk about the mechanism that is used between the two rocket systems and how they fold up into the rocket before it goes down to Mars. This is an obvious flaw. Why would you take all that weight down onto a planet and then later have to launch with it off the planet again. It makes more sense and to leave that mechanism (struts, cables, whatever) in orbit. This will be less mass to land and definately less mass to launch when its time to leave The surface of Mars.

    The Second thing to deal with is how the connecting mechanism is attached to the two rockets. The video shows them attached at the rocket’s center of mass, which is correct. The question is, can this rocket, on its side as it speeds up the spinning, be able to deal with the stresses of a major portion of 1 G when suspended from the center of the rocket. Most rockets are designed to support stresses in one direction, that is lengthwise for lift off.
    Also, as the rocket, on its side, begins to spin up, everyone inside is going to be flung to one side of the rocket until it is rotated toward the center.

    To me it makes more sense to have three portions for each transition to Mars; 2 rockets and a transfer vehicle/mechanism. This mechanism is placed between the two rockets and has all the attachments, as well as radio antennas and microwave dishes attached at the center. The center Mechanism would have its own rockets that would cause the initial spin and the deceleration thrust before they arrive on Mars. This also would illuminate the need to transition or rotate the rockets during spin-up. His center mechanism would remain in orbit for the return home to Earth.
    Then it would remain in Earth orbit for the next flight out to Mars. It would need more fuel and some repairs no doubt.

    Please let me know your thoughts.
