EVOLUTIONARY RESEARCH

 

Hello, my name is Richard Thieltges, and I am a writer and theorist in the area of space technology. This site contains some of my papers. Please feel free to copy and distribute them freely. I do of course want to reserve the right to publish them elsewhere in the future.

 

CIRCULAR ELECTROMAGNETIC MASS DRIVER: SPACE LAUNCHER FOR UNDER $10.00/LB.

This is my paper on using maglev technology to insert freight into orbit. Magnetic mass drivers are by far the most well-researched and robust technology for accelerating mass to escape velocity.

 

CIRCULAR ELECTROMAGNETIC MASS DRIVER BUSINESS PROPOSAL

This is the above idea in the form of a business proposal.

 

EVOLUTIONARY RESEARCH STROMATOLITE IDENTIFICATION SITE

This is a Mars Rover Controller Stromatolite Identification training site. It makes use of my very large stromatolite collection from all over North America, and my classification work with it.

 

ARCHITECTURE FOR RAPID EXO-PALEONTONLOGICAL SURVEY OF MARS

This is an architecture for a rapid robotic aerial survey of the Martian landscape using a nuclear thermal Mars airplane, with streaming of the data back to Earth and massive public participation in its analysis.

 

A REVISION TO THE ROADMAP FOR THE ROBOTIC AND HUMAN EXPLORATION OF MARS: A NECESSARY AERIAL SCOUT MISSION

This is the above paper in a form to be submitted to Astrobiology Magazine

 

MIDNIGHT RIDERS: STRATEGIES FOR PERPETUATING LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE

This is a paper about a long-term strategy for ensuring life continues in the universe by inserting a wide variety of soil, rock, and waterborne microorganisms and spores into inexpensive canisters, and fireing them directly out into space in all directions away from the sun, seeding the rest of the galaxy with life.
