An Ingenious Perseverance: The Search for Life on Mars

Abstract: Recently, NASA’s Perseverance rover (equipped with the Ingenuity helicopter) landed on Mars and is investigating the crater Jezero, a place where scientists think they might fight find possible signs of life through the leftover marks of deltas and rivers and the rocks that might contain life-signalling minerals. The Perseverance rover is only a part

Design for a Europa Subsurface Explorer Mission with a Telescopic Subsurface Vehicle

Abstract Europa, one of Jupiter’s four large Galilean moons, is a target of prime importance for exploration. This is due to the likely presence of a global subsurface liquid water ocean beneath a water ice crust, raising the possibility that Europa could support simple life. Future mission concepts include a lander deploying a probe to

The Holographic Principle

Abstract This article aims to demystify the Holographic Principle, an emerging theory that encompasses as disparate fields as black hole physics, string theory, cosmology, and quantum mechanics. As such, it is no mean feat to attempt to provide a working knowledge of this theory in a single article. However, it is the author’s goal to

An examination of feasible rocket propulsion systems for a future single stage rocket

Abstract This paper explores different types of rocket propulsion systems and assesses their benefits and drawbacks. The paper also compares different types of rockets, such as Single Stage rockets and Two Stage rockets, before proposing a propulsion system for a future Single Stage to Orbit (SSTO) rocket. This system shall meet the requirements of both
