If satellites were motionless, they would rapidly plummet to Earth – but they don’t because of a magic ratio between forward velocity and the rate at which they fall, giving them a stable orbit at any altitude. This concept captivated Professor Petar Bosnic, leading him to a simple question: could a rapidly rotating ring create lift in the same manner that a satellite remains in free-fall? He joins us to talk about his vision for a new propulsion from the concept of “Gravifugal Force”…

“‘Tremendous Thrust’?!?! How about “several millions of kilo-pounds of thrust” if made with the strongest materials available today. This would include a craft specially fitted with a quantum ring – but despite this massive force, the craft doesn’t violate any conservation of energy laws. However, it would be efficient enough to get to orbit several times in one day. Electrical energy is used to accelerate the ring and lift up the craft.

The beauty of the concept is that the ring stores energy like a flywheel – when you want to land the craft, you can decelerate the ring by using it as a generator, which transforms its kinetic energy back into electrical energy for storage in a battery-bank. To get back into orbit again, you simply use the stored energy, thereby saving everything except friction-losses in the process. This strategy is obviously also in accordance conservation of energy. It should greatly reduce the cost of operation for this craft.” – Petar Bosnic
