The mastery of LENR will allow the development of technologies that will free mankind from the constraints and destruction of nuclear energy. With LENR mankind can take a constructive path and turn dead planets into thriving vital ones capable of long term human habitation.
For many years now, I have been concerned about the limitations imposed on us by are limited technologies with the application in terraforming Mars. The recent understanding that we have now gained involving how metalized hydrogen is the basis of the LENR reaction and the source of the internal heat generated by LENR within the cores of most celestial bodies in our solar system has now granted us the opportunity to someday remake and tame the hostel desert surface of the Red planet: Mars.
The lack of a planet wide magnetic field produced by the circulation of molten material generated by an internal heat source will eventually allow the Solar wind to stripe off any breathable atmosphere and water oceans that the terraformers had the foresight and opportunity to produce. The solar wind must be diverted from the habitable surface of Mars. A shield from the solar wind will allow agriculture and animal husbandry to develop to support the population together with a shield to protect that population from mutagenic development of cancers. There is also the need to produce an ocean on Mars but that ocean would soon evaporate to space without the protection of a planet wide magnetic field to keep the Solar wind at bay.
The first job that those who would terraform Mars must accomplish is to setup a robust, perpetual, vigorous and self-sustaining internal heat source on Mars strong enough to get a current of molten material moving. LENR will allow this ambitious project to be accomplished. The key to getting this job done is manufacturing a generous amount of metalized hydrogen that can be pumped deep below the surface of the red planet to get a huge LENR reaction going in the heart of that planet. This material will setup the fusion of hydrogen that seems to be missing from the current internal planetary mechanics. We must think about how to transform the core of Mars into a huge LENR reactor.
Once the center of Mars is melted, volcanoes will develop, and plate tectonics will proceed bringing with it the perpetual recycling of wastes and sediments to the atmosphere and the oceans thereby keeping Mars a fresh an vibrant world.
The amount of frozen water and atmosphere already present on Mars must be evaluated and if required asteroids will need to be move from the asteroid belt to Mars to get the percentage of area covered by oceans up to 70% of surface cover.
The next job that we must undertake with the help of LENR is the reformatting of the moons of Mars into a single large moon to stabilize the rotation of mars to make the Marian seasons stable.
Mars’ moons are among the smallest in the solar system. Phobos is a bit larger than Deimos, and orbits only 6,000 km (3,700 miles) above the Martian surface. No known moon orbits closer to its planet. It whips around Mars three times a day, while the more distant Deimos takes 30 hours for each orbit. Phobos is gradually spiraling inward, drawing about 1.8 m closer to the planet each century. Within 50 million years, it will either crash into Mars or break up and form a ring around the planet.
Phobos and Deimos must both be raised in their orbits and combined into a more massive single moon. To add the required mass to our new moon sufficient to stabilize Mars’ rotation, a large asteroid and/or dwarf planet such as Vesta and/or Ceres now lying in the asteroid belt might also require relocation to the obit of Mars.
This could be done by setting up a array of monopole engines on the surfaces of these moons.
In detail, HRM as dark matter generates a monopole field that keeps it from destruction by the huge pressures and heat produced inside planets and stars. This field can be used to produce the LENR based energy required to move celestial objects around the solar system.
The monopole is the analog of a chemical catalyst. It is an agent provocateur. When the monopole field irradiates matter it stimulates proton decay and nuclear breakup without being changed itself. A single monopole field can do this over and over again as rapidly as it can find its way into successive protons or nuclei. And with each such event, a quantity of energy is liberated which is far greater than that released in uranium fission. The implications of monopole catalysis are enormous. All matter, be it garbage or junk or gold ingots, becomes a source of unlimited energy. Given a suitable supply of monopoles the energy needs of the world are limited only by the supply of matter to be catalyzed into energy, This is LENR. The monopoles field produced by HRM will be of incalculable worth for physical research and for energy production.
Beyond their utility as producers of energy, HRM as analog monopoles could probably be used directly in a spaceship engine. There have already been studies by Robert W. Forward and others showing that antimatter annihilating with matter in a magnetic “hemi-bottle”, an intense magnetic field pinched at one end and open at the other would serve as an extremely efficient spaceship drive. The problem is that the needed amount of antimatter fuel would require a truly staggering investment, because the antimatter would have to be manufactured by earth-based or orbiting “antiproton factories” of monumental size.
The same basic scheme, however, could be applied using the monopole catalysis. The “fuel” would then be atoms of normal matter caused to explode because their protons and neutrons undergo catalyzed decay as a flux of monopoles is passed through them. The hemi-bottle magnetic nozzle then provides the dual function of guiding the charged nuclear fragments from the exploded nuclei out the exhaust port of the engine and at the same time collecting the monopoles at the pinch point for re-use in the next engine cycle.
These monopole engines can be mounted on the surface of the objects that we want to relocate and the mass from the object can be converted to the power we need to move the object to where we want it to go.
When we fully understand what LENR can do, we can remake our solar system in the way that suits our purposes the best. It’s just a matter of time.
