On the possibility of using the Podvysotsky kinetic engine for flights within the Solar system and to create an interstellar probe. Space Colonization Journal, Issue 5, 2014.


This paper provides an answer to the criticism of the kinetic engine contained in the papers [1,2]. This paper is illustrative and semi-quantitative in nature, and is based on some simplifications, which are given explicitly. Therefore, this paper should not be considered as a complete theoretical study claiming completeness.
