A few examples of concepts. Several of the essays below come from the website of the United States Centennial of Flight Commission. These are one-of-a-kind treasures, commissioned from experts in each field on the occasion of the 2003 Centenary of the first powered human aerodynamic flight by the Wright Brothers. They now reside at the web archives of the University of North Texas Library. Other essays are linked as we find exceptionally useful ones anywhere. We do not usually store or archive these linked essays. In time, we expect that EXTROVERT original content essays will outnumber these.
These are in alphabetical order.
Below is a sketch of a Brayton Cycle to convert intensified solar energy to mechanical work, and eventually to beamed power, in Space. See our papers under "Space Power Grid", an example of a heavily multidisciplinary advanced concept development exercise, enabled by the EXTROVERT project.
