Byzantion – In a rapidly assembled press conference Professor Iris Andreas of the Theodora University in Byzantion has announced the successful development of a new and revolutionary space propulsion technology. Named a Tesla Drive, the system uses a recently newly discovered element in nuclear reactor waste that can rapidly speed up space travel. The first generation of this drive working at 0.01 times the speed of light could bring a spaceship from Earth to Mars in just over 6 hours.
“This is the greatest scientific achievement in human history and would not be possible without heretofore unseen international cooperation. Theodora University, National University of Singapore, University of Helsinki, Universities of Warsaw and Kalinigrad Institute of Technology, Tsinghua University, National Institutes of Technology and hundreds of independent researchers across the globe have all been of vital importance” The lead researcher said, crediting her colleagues. “To reflect the nature of this research we have decided not to patent its findings. Our work will be published for the entire world’s benefit and so that humanity can finally move beyond the restrictions of our one planet.”
A solution to speed up space travel has long been on the wishlist of governments the world over, as resources on Earth are rapidly declining the asteroid belts and other planets form a vital source of much needed materials. The dream of an interplanetary human race has also recently gained prominence with increasing experimentation in space travel. This new Tesla Drive, already successfully demonstrated, will almost certainly revolutionize humanity’s efforts and start a new era of space travel.
