Often, during my studies, I throw often my notebooks on the ground, because the teachers, with a very serious face, tell me physical or mathematical nonsensical. One could at that time almost not listen. Maybe they were only the influences of the Cold War, which had infiltrated and ruined our school system. Who knows? Maybe yes, maybe not.
For example, the red sun theory. Immediately recognized this beautiful stupidity. This theory today belongs to the past. Finally!
One day the professor of mathematics proclaimed that the number ZERO was no longer an number! Erased politically! This absurdity finally belongs to the past.
And then the theory of electrons that whirr around the nucleus of atoms in a illogical switchback (against all logic of physics and mathematics), this screwball-theory is finished.
Thanks to the Internet today I can say my opinion. If it is sensible or not, I do not mind its not important. Whot the idiot theories that the teachers said then (during the Cold War) were certainly less sensible.
The drawing of Lhuiller and the embassy of the stonecutter of the sarcophagus
The prominent drawing of Lhuiller is the base of all the things. It was he (later with Erich von Däniken), that brought the truth to the daylight. Nobody but he manages to produce such attention like "Ah" and "Oh". I dont want this contribution on no account to criticise his drawing. But Dr. Lhuiller lived in another time so things did not look the same as today we clear I y realize.
My objection directs itself exclusively at the nose of the spaceman.
The sarcophagus depicts very clearly a protection of the nose like a fighter pilot. Lhuiller is thought to have assumed that the stonecutter has not made something correctly, and so the whole nose in its drawing is depicted. And this nose on the gravestone is invisible below the oxygen supply of the protection of the nose.
To better explain I have got the protection of the nose of the air force fighter pilot to look at, then recognize the unanimity with the sarcophagus, and the small, well meant error of Lhuiller.
The foot-controls of this primitive space capsule
Thanks the prominent drawing of Lhuiller the graphical processing is very simple. On can illustrate much easier in colour.
One sees in this image, the spaceman directing the jet with his naked foot. This spaceman controls like a racing driver, without any electronic or electrotechnical auxiliary resource. But at that time already easy electronics had, portend already the earplug up different tiles. So can it itself here even about a sporting pidgin deal. Probably but not.
To better explain, I have got the aircrafttail of a airplane to study. This thrust control has the same operation.
Beautiful to be seen is the ergonomic footrest. It has also another adjusting thong or adjusting screw.
The suit of the space traveller
With the exceptional design from Dr. Alberto Lhuiller, reworking the graphics with colour are very simple.
But in the design of Dr. Lhuiller, the astronaut seems half naked. But, in truth - on the plate of the sarcophagus - he is very well protected from the cold. But the hands and feet are barefoot, in order to drive more accurately with the capsule guide. What underlines my theory of "primitive technique."
And now we colored the entire drawings.
A brief summary generic
Even here, as the basis, the famous drawing of Dr. A. Lhuiller.
With different colors I can explain better. Especially what I see from this figure. The guide of the feet must be supported for the long leverage (axis of pilotage for the feet), then the thrust control can the thrust of the gas divert and can be accurately adjusted with the long axis.
The small "seat" is certainly a little obstacle, but in this case should not be impossible.
Do not forget that our chemical "rockets", with a human crew, have the values of acceleration of approx. 60 m/s2 . This small space capsule, however, has presumably an maximal accelleration of approx. 15-20 m/s2. This would allow this seemingly impossible seat.
Now I will explain what I see in this picture:
Note: Wanting to see the fruits on this technical drawing, that requires a vivid imagination.
Handle with knob (left hand)
If you are piloting with your feet and sitting on a very simple chair, then somewhere you need to really hold fast. Possibly, the knob integrated into the handle for the left hand, serves to adjust the propulsion.
Button for adjustment (right hand)
The small button adjustment, which is used in the drawing, is probably the volume button or to search for radio channels. But of course, it could be something else. High Tech I can not see here!
Adjusting the seat
Most likely, bottom left of the chair. As in a motor vehicle! To laugh.
Foot control with your feet (with two bare feet!)
But we must really be crazy to be piloting a spaceship so. But here we can see clearly and unambiguously that the facts are these. Long axis of leverage for the feet, short axis for the directional wing.
Very beautiful is the ergonomic support for the left foot. It has even a single regulating screw.
The suspension of this mobile structure
Now, if we look at the long levers, then they must be "supported" in the middle of their route. Otherwise will the entire frame rattle apart. This suspension however, must act on 2 levels, given that the gas thrust should be able to "fly" on 2 levels. Otherwise flies only left or right.
End of this chapter
If you look good throughout the structure, then you have the sense to stay in front of an object made in the garage. Surely nothing exceptional. The only thing exceptional is the engine. Really unique. I described below. This madman has courage, to fly with this "ding".
