Abstract

Many space new missions are on calendar this decade for Moon, Mars and other planets. Some of these missions are depending on simple reliable chemical thrusters and others on the nonchemical advanced propulsion techniques. In most of nonchemical techniques a nuclear source of energy is necessary as in nuclear electric rockets where the maximum velocity produced is around 20 km/s. Despite of being faster than the chemical propulsion method; the nuclear rocket has to spend one month with full burning capacity to reach Mars at its closest point to earth and years to reach the other planets. The long time consumed in these journeys is still a challenge and we are still in need for faster methods to travel in space. On finding these methods; a new horizon will be opened beyond space exploration and a new era will begin. The traditional thoughts are about how machines and engines go the distance in shorter time with different types of energies, but what if we found an object that can travel in space naturally with a great velocity? If so, we can let that object deliver the spacecraft to its destination with the same great velocity. This object must be having a mass and its velocity should not exceed the speed of light according to the general relativity. There is nothing better than the electron beam which is also known as the cathode ray to be that object as the electron has a dual nature and behaves as a particle and a wave. This is a fundamental research showing a theoretical simulation using the electron beam to transmit a spacecraft in space with a velocity of 0.01 of light speed. This simulation aims to find out the basic physical principles needed to make this possible, and then these principles will be applied on other negatively charged solid materials with better characters which are more suitable for industrial purposes.
