New Israeli satellite truly revolutionary.

I am NOT the science guy but I read a long article about this satellite.

The actual theory of it's hitchhiking flight pattern and gradually increasing orbital ellipsis to save fuel is the new way to go.

The Earth is the spaceship and with this concept we can hitchhike to every body in the Solar System at minimal cost.

The math is pretty hardcore. The elliptical orbits have to be calculated with precision to allow the proper whip action, heading and bearing.

Hands down Nobel Prize winner.

2. Apparently, the concept is older and no one but Israel bothered to do the hard work.

I wish they would; if anybody needs watching, it's the murderous thugs and bullies that ersatz nationality, the "Palestinians."

6. The goal is far higher.

Right now, military applications are N/A.

If this is perfected, it will make Israel the pre-eminent nation of space exploration. They will be able to go farther, for less money and resources than anyone else.

3. Thank goodness

They needed it to actually work and not just feel good.
