Magnetic Levitation for space application

Some days before while going through some sites i catched a insight about a article in space website portal which stated as space travel as startram. Which stated as a new revolutionary concept as powerful magnets to lift and propel massive rockets which carry some payload to the leo without propulsion system . it will be processing using a initial thrust and after that using electromagnetic acceleration system to provide launch system to leo . So the James Powell, a young researcher at Brookhaven National Laboratory he and his colleague Gordon Danby spent their spare time piecing together a concept. They obtained a patent for the breakthrough in 1968. Powell and Danby's magnetic levitation, or maglev, technology must have seemed like magic back then, but it is now being used to move large trains at speeds up to 375 miles per hour. Now they both came up with a revolutionary concept teaming up with aerospace engineer to implement this idea in revolutionize space industry using this magnetic levitation.

After referring some sources since this technology is been development process with various ideas experimental implementations and data’s collected how far this technology will work. Since this technology layout has been published by some scientist with their research work but since there are some limitations and challenges which have been facing through which are indicated as

HIGH G MEAGNETIC PROPUSION


SUPERCONDUCTING ENERGY STORAGE WITH FAST DISCHARGE CAPABILITY (~10-2SEC)


MINIMIZATION OF AIR LEAKAGE INTO END OF EVACUATED TUNNEL, USING COMBINATION OF GAS JET EJECTORS AND MHD PUMP.


HIGH HEATING RATE ON NOSE OF CARGO CRAFT AS IT ASCENDS THROUGH ATMOSPHERE.


THE OTHER THINGS WHICH COME UP IN FACTOR FOR THE FEASIBILITY OF MAGNETIC LEVITATION TECHNOLOGY

TECHNOLOGY NEEDS ASSESMENT

MATERIALS

SENSORS

ELECTRONICS AND CONTROL

ACTUATORS

AUXILIARY BEARINGS

FOR PERFORMANCE REQUIRMENTS ASSESMENT

POWER

DYNAMICS

REALIBILITY

COST

DENSITY (MASS/VOLUME)

OTHER FACTORS FROM SOME OF THE SOURCES



SO AFTER TO REFERRING SOME SOURCES AND PAPER PUBLISHED BY SOME RESEARCHERS THE VARIOUS CHALLENGES PLUS THE CONSTRAINTS WHICH INCLUDE IN THE FEASIBILITY OF THIS TECHNOLOGY SEEK A LONG WAY GO. IF THE EXPERTISE WORK AND SOLVE THE CHALLENGES AND COME UP WITH A NEW IDEA OTHER THAN NASA AND STARTRAM IDEAS. THIS TECHNOLOGY OR THIS STREAM CAN CREATE A WHOLE NEW REVOLUTION TO THE SPACE INDUSTRY WITH A POSSIBILITY TO TAKE AS MUCH PAYLOAD WE WANT IN A ROCKET LAUNCH. SO THIS WOULD BE AN INTERESTING AND A GOOD FIELD TO EXPLORE ,LEARN AND GENERATE A NEW KIND OF IDEA FOR SPACE ENVIRONMENT. SINCE THIS TECHNOLOGY CAN GIVE A TREMENDOUS CHANGE FOR OUR FUTURE IF THE PROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES PERTAINING TO BE SOLVED.
