Black-Hole Powered or Anti-Matter Fueled Spaceships?
Louis Crane has come up with an idea for an interstellar drive: black-hole powered spaceships, fueled by singularities made in robot-run solar power laser factories hovering just over the sun. It's fantastic science fiction, but unfortunately some seem to have forgotten the second word in that phrase.
The starship proposed might as well be called Enterprise. Imagination is incredibly important in all areas of science, driving us to discover and derive understandings beyond our own, but that's not an excuse to stick on a few equations and call it actual science. The Crane concoction is another unfortunate example of someone waving their hands over a bunch of real equations, shouting "in the future!" and claiming responsibility for actually doing work.
