Research by Energy Company Finds their TPV Sun Cells Can Power a Rapid Outer Space Transit
- A study by energy company, Brilliant Light Power, predicts that a trip to Mars would take only one day using their TPV Sun Cells to power an on-board laser.
- People could travel to Mars as tourists, as well as throughout the solar system, in a mere matter of days and weeks.
- The research prediction has been verified by Dr. Randell Mills: a highly qualified scientist, inventor of the Sun Cell, and CEO of Brilliant Light Power.
The research found that a trip to Mars would take just one day at 2G acceleration and deceleration using the TPV Sun Cells developed by Brilliant Light Power to power an on-board laser. The idea is to utilize hydrogen and heat it to a very high temperature as a propellant, employing a laser to heat the element, thus driving the spacecraft forward in a similar way that steam is heated from a steam kettle.
This study states:
“A recent NASA solicitation seeking revolutionary propulsion for rapid, deep-space transit identified a number of candidate missions of interest: traversing the distance between Earth orbit and Mars orbit in no more than 45 days, traversing a distance of 5 AU in no more than one year, traversing a distance of 40 AU in no more than 5 years, and traversing a distance of 125 AU in no more than 10 years …”
The main difference between the study by McGill, and Dr. Randell Mills’ research into providing transit to Mars in a day, is that the McGill method uses a ground-based laser array. Comparatively, the Mills method would be able to provide an on-board ship-based laser running on tiny quantities of water as fuel. A ground-based laser array only heats the fuel for 58 minutes, whereas an on-board laser would not have such limitations. Brilliant Light Power can supply the needed energy at an extremely high-power density.
By using this method of laser-hydrogen, or laser-thermal, propulsion (laser-thermal) and current technology, you could theoretically, practically, and technologically feasibly travel to Mars in just one day, by using an on-board laser, as well as sufficient fuel. This method would make it possible to send fifty astronauts or passengers to Mars, in a 100-ton spacecraft with a 6% payload – in just a day.
There would be little food and drink required for the trip, and due to the short duration of the trip, there would also be low radiation exposure. At 2G acceleration and deceleration en-route to Mars and back, one would weigh twice as much on-board the spaceship as on Earth, but activities on the ship would require little exertion.
Hypothetically, this method means the entire Solar System can be explored in a mere matter of days and weeks; even if no more fuel was used and a period of weightlessness had to be endured on the spacecraft, as the speed of the spaceship would not decrease by very much.
Brilliant Light Power’s TPV Sun Cells
Brilliant Light Power could produce 60 million Sun Cells in just one year – enough to replace all power generation world-wide! They have recently produced a proven 1.14-megawatt TPV Sun Cell.
