Well. No. But it’s a lot of fun.
But there’s a problem. It doesn’t work. In fact, it’s a very low priority.
“It takes forever,” said Dan Hickey, an assistant professor in the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
We’re talking, literally, for years.
“We can levitate in air by a factor of thousands, but in space we do not have a very good control,” he said.
Scientists have already tried this and it doesn’t work. You get a strange motion or you get nothing at all. So there are no plans for flying cars.
There are, however, plans for a spaceship called the Zephyr which has a magnetic levitation system, but that doesn’t work in space either because it’s unstable and has already been destroyed by a fire.
Hickey, who believes that his theory is correct, said the Zephyr is the “next big idea on the list for the space program.”
Why would it involve space? Because we’ll need to do something about climate change, he added.
“As human beings we are going to do our best,” he said.
He said Earth’s environment has been “so abused” that we can’t afford to let the planet die.
Zephyr is made in the U.S., but it took months to produce on a large scale. It’s also made of carbon.
“We’re going to be in the same boat as the rest of the globe,” Hickey said.
So that’s going to be a challenge? He was not kidding.
“I’ve heard of people that can levitate in a plane with a rocket, but then it’s a matter of landing it,” Hickey said.
The Zephyr won’t be ready for space until 2020, he told ABCNews.com, though a group of scientists working on a new prototype has already started building the first stage of its rocket.
“In a little while we’ll just go and get it,” he said on “Nightline.”
Hickey, who’s part of a team of scientists that’s trying to convince the International Space Station to use the Zephyr as part of its rocket launch system, wants Americans to support this mission. Because while NASA is helping out, it’s not supporting the American space program.
