Until then, how about investing all that money into more pressing matters that the world has all the time..

People like you are the reason why we are still held by the chains of Earth(no offense)..... People don't wanna spend money on our future they wanna spend it on the next new iPhone or Car.... We could easily travel and step foot on Mars, hell, even colonize it, and the moon. But again like i said earlier everyone is busy fighting wars, spending money where it isn't needed, and busy bickering at each other over stupid things. I pray for some kind of Alien invasion or discovery so we could get our damn priorities straight..

I agree and most of the time I wish as a country we would just stick to our own business. Something like this should be inspiring to the people of our country and to the world but as you said, we are too busy worrying about same sex marriage and who can tank the economy worse in the next presidency. /rant before this becomes a political debate lol

All and all, I find it to be an amazing idea and one that we should undertake.

So first we need a space station that can house hundreds if not thousands of workers and engineers.

This guy sounds like an idiot to me. It would take well over 20 years to build that thing anyway + well over 20 for the space station.

Okay, so i'm watching Star Trek when I get home.

If ONLY this was capable in 20 years, we've got to have a lot built before we can get the enterprise up and running.

And as for Nazi science, there was one thing their scientists were definitely good at, and that was rockets. Lets hope we get a breakthrough in this kind of thinking that doesn't require another world war.

Wish the site was up so I can check it out. Also, EE/Systems Engineer? Nice, that background is probably what enabled him to do the macro and micro part of the plan. Props to him! Engineers are the future guys, America is graduating less and less Engineers every year!

I hope the site goes back up. I didn't get a chance to check everything out since it was so overwhelmed with traffic(speculation).

Thrusters for gravity you say?

Then anti-gravity seems like the plausible answer to me!
