Explanation of my Study

Space Travel
Space Travel has been NASA’S major concerns and it’s the biggest challenge they ever faced. It is only the future that holds any hope of seeing major space travels to unimaginable distances. My idea is to only look at existing ideas and theories and interpret new ideas and theories that could actually happen fifty to sixty years from now in space travel. It’s to find different methods and using them in different ways to make travelling in space faster and more efficient.

Gravity Sling Shot
The Invention of Michael Minovitch’s theory of Gravity Propelled Interplanetary Space Travel was so radical it did not require and rocket fuel or any on-board energy generating system, but was capable of generating vehicle velocities for greater than the most advanced nuclear propulsion system, and was independent of the vehicle’s mass.
Gravitational slingshot is the use of the relative movement and gravity of a planet to alter the path and speed of a spacecraft, typically in order to save propellant, time, and expense. Gravity assistance can be used to accelerate, decelerate and/or re-direct the path of a spacecraft.
A gravitational slingshot is a slick way to pick up speed using a moving planet’s gravity.
Using a planet as large as Jupiter can send a ship at half the speed of light.

Light Speed Neutrinos Particles
Antonio Ereditato, the leader of Neutrinos research team discovered that Neutrinos are charged particles that move faster than light. These are little disc like particles which when spun around really fast gets charged and runs at light speed at any direction it is lead to.
Neutrinos are particles that escaped from the sun and are buried underground on Earth.

Space Elevator
 Space elevator Technology was invented by Arthur C. Clarke. Its name pretty much explains how it works. A cable is strung between a launch point and a geostationary satellite in orbit, dangling all the way up from the ground through the atmosphere into space. Elevator cars will then ride up and down the cable, powered by ground-fired laser beams, and ferrying equipment and personnel into space without all the expense, fuss and risk of a rocket launch. When they become technically feasible, they'll make access to space about as simple and easy a task as driving a car, and they'll drop the costs of launching satellites by an extraordinary amount--completely transforming how we think about space travel.

Ion Propulsion
Rocket designers have been studying ion propulsion since the 1950s, and mention of the technology often turns up in works of science fiction.
Deep Space 1 is the first spacecraft to use it as a primary means of propulsion.
Instead of the fiery thrust produced by typical rockets, an ion engine emits only an eerie blue glow as electrically charged atoms of xenon are pushed out of the engine. Xenon is the same gas found in photo flash bulbs and lighthouse search lamps. Acceleration with patience In the engine, each xenon atom is stripped of an electron, leaving an electrically charged particle called an ion. Those ions are then jolted by electricity that is produced by the probe's solar panels and accelerated at high speeds as they shoot out from the engine. That produces thrust for the probe. The ions travel out into space at 68,000 miles (109,430 kilometers) per hour.
The thrust itself is amazingly light -- about the force felt by a sheet of paper on the palm of your hand.
It takes a while for it to accelerate so hence it's acceleration with patience.
But once ion propulsion gets going, nothing compares to its acceleration. Over the long haul, it can deliver 10 times as much thrust-per-pound of fuel as more traditional rockets.
