Advanced propulsion refers to the innovative technologies we develop at Morningbird Space to move spacecraft across vast distances of space more efficiently than traditional rocket engines. This includes leveraging electromagnetic energy to distort spacetime, allowing for faster-than-light potential travel within theoretical physics frameworks.

Spacetime distortion for propulsion is inspired by theories from Einstein’s General Relativity. Our technology attempts to create a ‘bubble’ of distorted spacetime around a spacecraft, effectively allowing it to move faster than light relative to the space outside the bubble without violating the laws of physics.

Many researchers around the world are working on ways to use distorted spacetime as a means of FTL propulsion. Morningbird Space’s approach is promising and is in the experimental stage.

Absolutely. Our advanced propulsion technologies are designed to significantly reduce travel time to other planets, making them ideal for interplanetary missions. This capability is crucial for future missions to Mars, the outer solar system, and beyond.
