So I finally started my own blogg my very own place to bitch about whatever I want.
I mean, every other ashole on the planet has their own bitching place. So why not me. I plan to log some of the experiments and activities i intend to carry out. I will remain anonymous, because from what I’ve seen happening to people experimenting in similar fields, and i think there are regulations that aim to limit such exploration and activities.
Of course, I seriously disagree with such regulations since I can’t understand why the fuck scientific endeavours. In certain areas should be exclusively government-controlled? actually across the planet government seems to forget that they are our employees who we have tasked to provide a few basic things such as roads basic education. Healthcare and security for people and property. government-controlled activities are inherently wasteful, ineffective and costly. So I don’t want them to do anything other than what we asked them to do.
My first experiment is actually inspired by a web page by Glenn Ohlson that has done some research into using a ramjet rocket as a launchplatform. This is an intriguing idea, and he has certainly has certainly put thought and effort into this idea but nothing I can find has ever been produced that could be considered flightworthy. One of the main problems faced by such an approach is that a ramjet isnt very effective at low speeds. In fact, it’s not very efficient until you reach speeds of about mach 3. So before you can actually use the ramjet stage. We have to accelerate the device up to a spoeed where the ramjet can start to produce useful thrust. i have seen quite a few different approaches to this problem everything from guns. To rubber band launchers seems to have been explored.
My approach will test. if It is possible to operate a rocket with different flight moudes it will start as a rocket and accelerate to about twice the speed of sound, were it will switch to ramjet mode for the remaining duration of the fight.
Luckily, I am not bound by financial time restrictions, and I expect to spend four years to complete the device.
