    Perhaps. But it will get you to orbit. Fantasies about "carbon fusion" will not.

    Not perhaps it is .

    Anti-gravity and the like , produce fantastic speeds . From 2000 to 10,000 to 50,000 thousand miles per/hour .

    Now break each by 60 minutes and then by 60 seconds , you get miles/second . An eye opener .

    That's nothing. The USS Voyager could hit warp 9.975, which is .73 light-years per hour, or 4.2 trillion miles per hour. It would take less than a second to get to Pluto from here! You could get to Gliese 667 Cc, the closest maybe-habitable planet to us, in 30 hours!

    Antigravity? Pshaw.

    Aw. You beat me.

    My Pixie Dust Drive can beat river's antigravity with one eye tied behind its back.

    Well pal , you're idea sounds way out there like a 70's party bus story .

    1. To reach great distances in a reasonable duration requires speed and fuel capacity

    2.The craft would have to withstand various stress level

    3.Humans would probably not survive the voyage

    4. Standard propulsion will not suffice

    Once you can overcome these hurdles dude ,you can go

    There is . Thats why these UFO's , ( unidentified flying objects , ( are not phenomena , ufp.) ) .

    They manuover as they do and have fantastic accelerations .

    Anti-gravity propulsion explains the acceleration and speeds , from 2000mph , to 5000mph , to 10,000 to 50,000 mph . And the sudden , " blinking out of , sight .

    At 2000mph , divided by 60 minutes , is 33.333miles per minute , divided by 60 seconds is , 0.5555555 or 0.6 miles per second . " Blinking out " , suddenly gone . Is no surprise . Not to me any way .

    This thread has evolved into sheer stupidity, Anti-gravity certainly doesn't exist and neither does the USS voyager, you guys took what was a serious post and turned it into a heap of crap.

    Sorry, but I have to disagree with you. This thread has been sheer stupidity from the very beginning!

    An empty claim from you, as usual.
    What do? Alien spaceships? None have been shown to exist.
    I think you'll find that magic pixie dust explains that just as well.
    What ships?

    Indeed. The most interesting thing in this thread so far has been the use of the exclamation "pshaw", something I have not seen for many years outside c.19th novels.

    I wasn't sure how to pronounce that. So, I got my spelling checker to speak it...
    It sounds like pisshole. I know that can't be right, I think.

    I don't believe I've ever heard it said. It's just something Victorian or Georgian characters say, in novels. I can imagine Sherlock Holmes saying it, of some theory advanced by Insp. Lestrade, or something. But as to how he'd say it, I've no idea.

    Reminds me of P.G. Wodehouses's character Psmith, explaining how to pronounce his name: "The p is silent, as in pshrimp".

    (I actually thought I had used it and Exchem was referring to me, but it wasn't me.)

    My father used to say it. It's pronounced just like it seems. Drawing it out a little, it could almost be two syllables: "Psh-aw!". In fact, pishaw is an alternate spelling.

    Synonyms: Pish-posh!, G'wan! Fiddlesticks! Fiddle-dee-dee!
    (You can thank my mother for those last two.)

    My spelling checker is saying the two syllables very quickly as ''pis-hole''

    Well there is certainly a lack of understanding of anti-gravity tech .

    I recommend people do increase their knowledge of anti-gravity technology .

    Start with T.J. Brown . Starting in the early thirties , to late thirties . It wasn't held as secret information back then .
