When I have an hour, sure. :D

my dad pointed this out to me first, he now thinks that this thing could actually justify the creation giant robots designs like gundams for better thrust control. :lol: and as if that were not a enough comic book weirdness he than tells me that the Nazis where working on some device that looked a lot like the em drive, so you know what that means.

It means 1) your dad is interested in science and scientific accomplishments, 2) he is interested in space travel and 3) the Germans were much more technologically advanced because of their R&D programs. :)

Or are you trying to say there are space nazi's out there?! Kind of like in 'Iron Sky'?

The first guess is the truth, but I was hoping for a "Iron Sky is real!" joke. But there shouldn't be any Nazi in space since the SS killed all the researchers on that project.

If we ever need to fasttrack a Spaceship in case of a first contact invasion, Project Orion would be our best option.

Londo: "The Minbari put great emphasis on art, literature and music." Say instead: "They are decadent people, interested only in the pursuit of... of dubious pleasures." It doesn't mean anything, but it scares people every time!

Your talking about the nuclear rockets, would love to see that research put to actual use, but the only way that would happen is if the Earth was in danger of destruction or invasion and even then it would an extremely controversial move just do to human fear.
