About the Book

This book provides a mathematically detailed presentation of relativistic rockets and relativistic rocket fuels. The book includes mathematical exploration of rockets able to obtain velocities ranging from Keplerian velocities thru ironically the speed of light. Rocket concepts are presented for which the spacecraft Lorentz factors are so large such that the spacecraft velocities of travel are quantum mechanically indistinguishable from the speed of light. Numerous specific scenarios are provided.
