Dear readers, Laureti recently shared on ASPS webpage some details about F432 experimental setup and the incredible physics behind electromagnetic propulsion. He is now quite confident, after numerous experiments, that Newtonian mechanics can’t be applied to PNN thrust. This could mean (while we keep our feet on the ground waiting for resolutive in-space tests) that […]Read more "More experimental evidences for PNN inertia"
Dear readers, as promised here’s the second part of ASPS activity update. The great news is that after F449 the Association has created what seems to be the lucky thruster who’ll make it into space! The prototype name is F432 and it has the following specs: Input power: 250W Thrust: 250 mg ( measured at less […]Read more "F432: the space is getting closer – an update about ASPS prototypes part II"
Dear readers, today I’ve got interesting news about ASPS work. First of all, the Association has found external collaborators with whom it has worked on its latest official prototype, F242, to make it more suitable for testing in vacuum chambers and, of course, for space flight. Substantially, modifications have been made to make the thruster […]Read more "An update about ASPS prototypes part I – F449"
Dear readers, Here is an update about F242 written by Laureti in the latest issue of ASPS official periodical Nova Astronautica: The PNN prototype F242 is operative again. I’ve tested it several times in late 2016 and that’s why there is a consistently delay in the publication of Nova Astronautica issue n.150. Practically I’ve had to […]Read more "F242 is operative again"
Dear readers, it has been a while since my last post because I’ve been a bit busy lately but today I would like to resume the blog activity with a rapid update directly from ASPS. Unfortunately there have been some technical problems with F242 thruster or, to be more specific, in the connection with the ballistic pendulum. On […]Read more "Unexpected malfunction"
This post is the conclusion of the brief history of ASPS written by Laureti for NASA spaceflight forum. Here he clarifies the Association point of view regarding the existence of the Displacement current. E.Laureti: With a few other physicists I’m fighting for years a battle about the nonexistence of the displacement current. Nonexistence in which many […]Read more "ASPS position on Displacement current"
F242 on ballistic pendulum. The rigid pole passes through the prototype so it can be moved vertically. Dear readers, F242 thrust has been improved up to 2.56 grams! I would like to share with you the details of this achievement through a direct translation from the original article on ASPS website written by Laureti: As I […]Read more "F242 is now at 2.56 grams of thrust"
Have we found the sail for the sea above our own? Dear readers today news are exciting! I’m reporting an excerpt from the description of PNN prototype Fert242 written by Emidio Laureti. The post is long but I kindly invite you to take your time and read it until the end, because it describes the physical behavior of PNN like […]Read more "F242 – The game changer"
In 19th century Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell laid the foundations for modern electromagnetism theory by grouping in a single theory all the previous observations, experiments and equations attributable to such phenomenon. It demonstrates that light, electricity and magnetism are all manifestations of a single phenomenon: the electromagnetic field. Maxwell summarized Michael Faraday’s and Andre-Marie Ampere’s […]Read more "The elusive displacement current"
Just a quick post. I created English subtitles for the PNN presentation video that was shot at Sheraton Hotel Rome on May 3rd 2005. In the presentation we see Massimo Ceccarelli, ASPS’s vice president, discussing about PNN potentialities and presenting prototype P26MR05. Unfortunately the video doesn’t show any experiment. The meeting was attended by Boeing and […]Read more "2005 PNN roadshow video"
