I was trying to imagine a spherical blast wave, like a
going off and what would happen at the interface of two
such events. My thinking is that the waves won't travel
through each other but compress and give a slightly
greater force back the other way.
INSERT - it would be like launching
two fighter jets,
exhaust to exhaust, in opposite directions.
Imagine a rocket with a tube through the centre of the
combustion chamber like a tube of Smarties and that a
single pill can be dropped at will.
Each pill will have a coating that will ablate in a constant
way and time in the rocket's thrust stream. On stripping
the coating, the pill which contains a slightly faster more
powerful exposive than the thrust propellent, ignites.
If such an explosive exists, I am imagining it would give
little steps, when needed, in the lift flight.
