The Use of Time-Forwarding to Place Satellites in Orbit
Satellites are becoming smaller and less expensive, mostly due to the advances in electronics, while the launch costs remain prohibitive for mass commercial use. Launch costs for a typical telecommunications satellite are around $120MM USD. This short technical paper proposes a method for placing a 500 kg (1100 lb) satellite in orbit for less than $2 USD. The avoided-cost savings for the US, could exceed $50 Billion USD over twenty years. This technology is based on a derivative of time travel. Each reader must comprehend that our universe literally blinks off and on, more than 1 trillion times every second (1.039 THz).
