SPACE FLIGHTS Moon 6 hours - Mars 70 hours
 THE WORLD'S FIRST GYROSCOPIC PROPULSION UNIT

THE CYPARDON

The present unit has ten gyros and loses 25% of its weight. This will greatly improve with better engineering.

EFFICIENCY

EFFICIENCY =

 output output + losses
90%
The present unit has losses as follows: windage, friction and motor losses and the usual iron, copper and commutation loss.

THE THRUST
A 1 horse power motor would raise
a 55lb load 10 feet in one second at 100% efficiency.

..........................................................

The power input is directly converted to an Upward Thrust. Since air is not involved in this transfer of power, the power is directly a product of the input X efficiency. The thrust is measured in g force.

A QUIZ

 Time Velocity @ 1g Velocity @ 2g Distance @ 1g Distance @ 2g 1 Hour 1 Day 1 Week 1 Month

THE VECTOR CROSS PRODUCT
 Vector A times Vector B Sine alpha = Vector C Let Vector A be the Gyro Force. Let Vector B be the Centrifugal Force. Let the angle be 90 degrees So Sine is unity. Then Vector C is VERTICAL as per the diagram! Eulers Dynamic Equations will also give a similar result. The humble drawing pin spinning on a smooth surface will quickly assume a vertical stance when it obeys these laws!

THE TRAVEL AREAS OF SPACE

 Exosphere Infinity Cold Thermosphere 700 km Warm Mesosphere 88 km Cold Stratosphere 44 km Gaseous Ground troposphere 11 km World weather

Vehicle control will have four gyros. One will be for the main up-thrust of the unit while the other three will provide the forces to vector the machine ( the steering motors ).

THE COST

As a quick guide, take a modem jet plane and remove the following......

Wings and engines
Large fuel tanks.
Under-carriage
Tail unit
Galley

Then add 4 x CYPARDON gyro units, one small a.c. power unit and batteries
