Heim-Dröscher-Häuser Gravitophotonic Hyperspace Drive
Dröscher-Häuser Gravitophotonic Hyperspace Drive Technology
The Heim-Dröscher-Häuser Gravitophotonic Hyperspace Drive (HDHGHD or HDH drive) is based on the
Heim Quantum Theory.
The propulsion system works by creating an intense magnetic field that, produces a gravitational field and results in thrust for a spacecraft.
At sufficient strength, the magnetic field creates the means for the ship to slip into parallel space, popularly known as hyperspace, where the speed of light is faster, allowing incredible speeds to be reached (Transiting causes a a velocity gain by a factor of
33,000.) Switching off the magnetic field would result in the engine reappearing in our current dimension (with an approproriate drop in velocity).
A large rotating ring placed above a superconducting coil creates an intense magnetic field. When the magnetic field reaches propulsion strength , the electromagnetic force reduces the gravitational pull on the ring to the point where it floats free. In order to creat a sufficient magnetic field for a 150-ton ship to completely counter a 1 G gravity well, a magnetic field with a magnetic flux density of 20 tesla is needed. In order to creat a sufficient magnetic field for a 150-ton ship to enter hyperspace, a magnetic field with a magnetic flux density of 30 tesla is needed.
Space flight is achieved in one of two modes. The first is simple acceleration and the second is transition into parallel space. For short interplanetary distances, ships generally transit at .0001 c (107,925.285 km/h), and at longer interstellar distances, ships generally transit at .01 c (10,792,528.5 km/h). HDHGHD ships generally maintain acceleration between 1 and 2 Gs (35-70 35.30394 km/h/s). Once transited to parallel space, ships generally travel at 330c.
