A video clip shows how a massive centrifuge sends satellites into space without the use of a rocket. We’ll tell you why it’s a great idea.
SpinLaunch has developed a giant file spinner that can launch satellites into space without the use of a missile.
This company was able to create a centrifuge capable of launching it into orbit at speeds of over 1,000 mph, and it seems to work just fine, according to the latest tests and footage they provided to us.
This system It will save us a lot of special wastesince it will avoid the use of missiles by companies that launch satellites, and this, in addition to reducing pollution, represents a huge saving.
SpinLaunch, in turn, wants to improve its centrifugation system to exceed the speed of Mach 6, which is equivalent to 7408.8 km / month although this is currently unlikely.
so Container He is already evaluating the use of this method with SpinLaunch for future launches of its satellites in the very near future.
In the video presented by the company, they were able to launch a satellite at a speed of 1,609 km/h, similar to Mach 1.3) and It reaches a height of 9,150 meters.
Many have discussed the possibility of using this type of system to launch people into space, but unfortunately something like this would be impossible, and for good reason.
The human body is able to withstand up to a force of 9 grams for a few seconds, this body is well trained. This SpinLaunch generates up to 10,000g of force, which is why it’s an option we rarely see in the very distant future. It’s interesting to see this type of work, which highlights the importance placed on the ability to not only investigate more in space, but also to reduce costs. Above all, put an end to the heavy pollution that the launch of missiles and satellites ensues.
One of the main values of SpaceX, a company owned by Elon Musk, is not only the ability to carry out commercial flights to Mars, but also its ability to return to Earth autonomously and the possibility of reusing it, which generates minimal pollution and it would be brutal. We look forward to showing you more videos and information regarding this new method of putting satellites into orbit, and we look forward to NASA showing you their video tests of this system, which will surely be used in a few years by default at the place of missiles..
