Re: NASA Tests ‘Most Powerful Rocket Booster Ever’

Im not really impressed by rockets anymore. It was cool when all we wanted to accomplish was putting a man on the moon, but what is the point of using a rocket to get from point A to point B when there is so much distance in outer space? It takes too long and is impractical. There needs to be another way to travel.

Simple physics; output. Energy being thrown out, not absorbed.

Yes but the outward thrust is trying to propel the rocket itself. Which, I imagine, would put great pressure on the structure.

Not if the structure is static.
