Dr. Young K. Bae

Dr. Bae is Chief Scientist and Founder of Y.K. Bae Corp, Advanced Space Technologies.  He has investigated advanced propulsion for more than 30 years after receiving a Physics Ph.D. from UC Berkeley. He researched antimatter propulsion and other advanced propulsion systems at the SRI International and the US Air Force Rocket Propulsion Lab.   After discovering, scaling-up and propulsion demonstration of Photonic Laser Thruster under the auspice of NASA, he and his team established that Photonic Laser Thruster can propel spacecraft to about 1 % of light speed at energy efficiency of 50 % without using propellant.  His current focus is on developing Photonic Laser Thruster for interplanetary Photonic Railway for enabling humanity to establish a multiplanetary civilization.  The multiplanetary civilization that he envisions is capable of efficiently utilizing the abundant resources on planets, moons and asteroids in the solar system and freely commuting between them in addition to permanently residing near and on them.

Broadcast 842 (Special Edition)

Dr. Young K. Bae was the guest for this Space Show program to provide us with important updates on his groundbreaking work with photonic laser thrusters. You can follow along with this discussion by visiting his website, www.baeinstitute.com. Dr. Bae received many listener questions about photonic laser thrusters as well as his work on fusion energy. One listener asked about ISP or his photonic laser thrusters while another took it a step further and asked Dr. Bae about other ways to judge efficiency and power.

Broadcast 634 (Special Edition)

Dr. Young K. Bae was the special guest for this Space Show program which originally aired on Tuesday morning, Nov. 28 and then again Tuesday evening, Dec. 5, 2006. Dr. Bae, has CEO of the Bae Institute in S. California (www.baeinstitute.com), is involved in cutting edge space related research. One product he discussed with listeners was his Photo Tether Formation Flight (PTFF) system which is applicable to satellite and spacecraft missions. Listen to his discussion to learn about PTFF and why it is so exciting. Dr.
