Snagged off the internet are a few pages from a Russian (I think…) magazine. Sadly, I cannot make heads or tails of it… not too surprising given that I have no knowledge of the Russian language beyond telling someone “Poshyol ty” is probably a good way to get hit.
Anyway, can anyone reasonably well-versed in Russian take a glance at the text and tell me what it’s describing? I don’t need a full translation, just the gist of it… who designed it for why, and what exactly it is. The title indicates it’s a “photon rocket,” which normally means a matter/antimatter rocket. But if it’s something else, especially if it’s something nuclear-pulsey, I’d like to know.
UPDATE: Thanks to several commenters, it’s a description of Eugen Sanger’s “photon rocket,” an antimatter annihilation propulsion system concept from the early 1960′s.
