For you techies - Triangular spacecraft patent
« on: May 17, 2017, 03:08:02 AM »
Saw this on Destroying The Illusion's video on youtube (linked below).  Anyone know why it doesn't show up on a search of the United States Patent and Trademark Office website?

Triangular spacecraft
US 20060145019 A1
Abstract
A spacecraft having a triangular hull with vertical electrostatic line charges on each corner that produce a horizontal electric field parallel to the sides of the hull. This field, interacting with a plane wave emitted by antennas on the side of the hull, generates a force per volume combining both lift and propulsion.

"The 60° angle on the corner creates a line charge density singularity that produces a huge horizontal electric field pointing from the back to the front of the craft which is also parallel to the sides of the triangle."
