Magnetic propulsion space travel
3, 2, 1 repel?
Could you imagine traveling through space at speeds only presented in theory? My thoughts as a dreamer if you will; I have always been fascinated by magnetism, that invisible force that either attracts or repels one body toward or away from each other. Now here is my idea; at least as a thought, imagine you created a spacecraft that made use of very powerful magnetic devices, such as a MRI equipment or some other powerful electro magnetic piece of equipment and lets say we fitted our spacecraft with just such equipment.
Now, as far as I know, most celestial bodies have two magnetic polar fields embodied in their masses. My plan would involve harnessing the opposing and attracting radiant fields of these starry hosts to propel our spacecraft to not only incredible speeds, but also to unknown, up to that point, galaxies that have been explored physically.
This magnetic propulsion drive vehicle could attain, at least in theory speeds that would be as fast, if not even greater than the speed of light. There would have to be a focused and directed beam of this magnetic energy in order to accomplish just such a feat. Perhaps, the use of microwaves, as in radio waves could conduct just such a concentrated beam of electron or proton particles plentiful enough and quick enough to transition just such a thought from dream to viability.
Electrically powered spacecraft
So, is this seemingly far fetched or do you suppose one day a reality? This universe of infinite outer space, even more intriguing than a Hubble could show us and waiting for our inhabitants to explore physically. Will we be ready and responsible enough to ensure no harmful or careless prolifreration or exploitation occurs when we finally arrive at the threshold of this new frontier?
I hope so and I remain open to the dream.
