About the Book

Volume 4 delves into some extremely advanced relativistic rocket concepts. Included in this highly mathematical work are methods of obtaining spacecraft Lorentz factors commonly held by many theoreticians to be practically impossible. However, I as the author provide a list of balanced and level headed caveats for the mechanisms to achieve Lorentz factors as great as various infinities. Additionally, I provide lots of examples and scenarios of chemical rocket flight enabling in theory infinite Lorentz factors. So, if you have an open mind toward the topics covered in this book and love whimsically far-out scenarios, this book is a good match for you.

About the Author

My love of interstellar travel had its genesis in my childhood. Through most of my elementary school age years, I was a shy kid but one who was far from the stereotypical reserved nerdy geek. My grade school report cards where generally good but where far from the straight A cards that the academically focused students would receive. I had a very personal dream, however, that motivated me to get through the often boring school days. This dream is that for an unbounded future of human interstellar space-flight. My infatuation with manned space exploration began early in grade school, fueled by the Apollo Space Program and lunar landings and the promise of manned missions to distant planets in the not-so-distant future. It seemed as though by the 1980s, we would definitely be sending humans on Martian exploratory missions. My interest in manned space travel waned a bit during the late 1970s through the mid-1990s, but picked up again after I had read a book on real world potential interstellar travel methods based mainly on known and well established physics.
