Alpha Cenauri Beckons

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Finally after more then a year in development this production has finally hit the internet.

Alpha Cenauri Beckons is a video about the ECR engine (Electron Cyclotron Resonance). The ECR is the very latest in advanced space propulsion. Using solid state components it is expected to give about 1.5 to 2 times the power over other current in-space propulsion systems. The ECR will require less maintenance because it doesn’t use electrodes (which wear out during opeartion) to generate electron resonance plasma. The extra performance comes from the facts of science that electron resonance has a higher energy state with which to eject plasma particles through the engine nozzle. In ECR propulsion ions are ejected more axially imparting more thrust. Specific Impulse (Isp) is about 5,000 sec. with the potential to go to 10,000 seconds which gives about 50,000 m/s to about 100,000 m/s exit velocity. The ECR was developed from the Gas Dynamic Mirror propulsive device which conceptually can generate fusion propulsion when materials and technologies, such as improved heat-to-electricity, are advanced to support fusion. When such technologies and materials are so advanced, the ECR can be configured to generate fusion. This will open up the entire solar system to manned travel. It could even make manned travel beyond our solar system a possibility! Alpha Centauri Beckons!

This is my first HD production!

Thanks to Allen Goodman for the voice over, and Tangerine Dream for the music (Stratosfear 1995).

Engine design by Al Reisz of Reisz Engineers.

A TV Series Remembered

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

A few years ago I was trying to remember an old TV series that I used to love watching when I was a kid. I loved watching it so much that I taped it so I could watch it over and over again. It was a TV series about Astronomers and Space. All I could remember was that it has astounding graphics and was about searching for black holes.

The graphics in that TV series was AMAZING!!!! And I loved it so much that I wanted to be an astronomer when I grew up.

Netflix VS Blockbuster - Service Review

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

I’ve had a lot of people ask me which is better, so I thought I would write a review about my experience with both, then let you decide.

I first began using Blockbuster in mid 2007 shortly after moving into my own apartment. I didn’t have roommates any more, and thus I did not own a TV of my own. Neither did I want a TV because the allure to watch is usually to much for me, and very shortly I am reminded as to why I didn’t want to turn the blasted thing on in the first place!

This is usually about when the first Progressive Auto Insurance and Lending-Tree advertisements start to show up showing me brief flashes of satisfied customers or some guy shaving his head to be more “Progressive”, followed by another ad with some guy telling me to go to my doctor and ask about Cialis. Well this goes really well for me at the time when I didn’t have a doctor and no medical insurance… You do the math! And it gets worse for me when McDonald’s comes on telling me to go try their new flavor of Chicken Nuggets, and buy some new brand of Nike shoes cause my current pair is “obsolete” or “out of style”, followed by some advert asking me “What’s in your wallet?” or telling me that I MUST own the latest quick mop for getting those hard to reach places in my apartment that has only 2 hard floors in the kitchen and bathroom. Let me be the first to say that I only have 1…count them ONE, hard to reach place, and that’s behind the toilet, why again should I get in my car, spend gas to go
