Wet-Launch of Prefab Habitat Modules
This paper was presented at the Space Studies Institute space conference in Princeton NJ in 1995.

Carousel Spacecraft Electrical Lift Around the Earth Up To GEO
This was one of three papers I presented at the Space Science and Exploration 2005 conference in Albuquerque, NM in 2005.

Besides the published papers, I created several papers that were in publishable form. Here are some of them

A continuous armature band type KESTS, instead of armature segments, would have some interesting properties. It would utilize tensile stress in the band instead of the kinetic energy losses with potential energy changes.

This would make early R&D versions easier
