asimov, jules verne, clark are geniuses and our scientific engineers are idiots......not capable to teleport humans.....and to travel to other stars systems !
since 1969 moon and armstrong, the space exploration didn't progress....Because the humans didn't visit another planet.....

Have you been drinking? Because I think you need to be quite intoxicated not to realize the difference between "imagining there to be a solution" and "presenting a working and feasible solution".

It's like saying: "With my help, NASA could go to Proxima Centauri in a couple of weeks. All we need is a faster-than-light drive. Man, NASA are idiots not to have made one of those yet".

You bring up Asimov, Verne and Clark. Why stop there? Might as well continue with Rowling, Lewis and Tolkien. All that keeps world hunger a persistent reality is humanity's lack of magic. What a bunch of idiots we are, am I right?

Probably when "they" build this 1955 design by Dr Wernher von Braun.



I was two years old when this was displayed...wow...

A bunch of early Sci-fi movies that had more fiction and space magic than actual science doesn't mean anything. Fiction is obviously more exciting than real life there is a reason why it has "Fiction" in it.

Either you are High or trolling

Rocket Lab electron booster falls short in debut test launch

By Irene Klotz Space.com Contributor Published May 26, 2017




Rocket Lab's first Electron booster launches into space from the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand on May 25, 2017. The rocket's upper stage failed to reach its intended orbit, company representatives said. (Rocket Lab)

The debut flight of Rocket Lab's miniature satellite launcher wasn't perfect, but the company is confident enough to proceed with plans for a second test launch this summer, founder and CEO Peter Beck said today (May 25).

Speaking to reporters less than 12 hours after the first Electron rocket bolted off its seaside launchpad in New Zealand, Beck said the booster's first and second stages separated as planned, but the upper stage, which doubled as a test payload, failed to reach its desired orbit about 310 miles (500 kilometers) above Earth.

A preliminary analysis shows that the upper stage ended up at roughly half that altitude, Beck said. [ Watch: Rocket Lab's Electron Arrives at Launch Site ]

"This is why we have test flights. It's all about gathering the data, finding out what works and what doesn't work," he said.

Ultimately, Rocket Lab is aiming for weekly flights of Electron, a two-stage, carbon-composite rocket designed to deliver payloads weighing up to about 330 lbs. (150 kilograms) into orbits some 310 miles above Earth.

The booster is powered by 3D-printed Rutherford engines that burn a mixture of liquid oxygen and kerosene.
