    Maurice Ward inventor of Starlite died early this year (2011).

    Starlite
    The mystery miracle heatproof plastic

    Maurice Ward did not patent it as this would involve publish the formula and he believed other would copy it with paying him.

    Maybe be his family will be more willing to sell this remarkable material.

    Starlite’s composition may not be that closely-guarded secret.

    Troy Hurtubise

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troy_Hurtubise#Firepaste

    Hurtubise is protective of ingredients for his concoction, but during a segment aired on Discovery Channel‘s daily news show Daily Planet, he revealed one secret to be Diet Coke. Images from electron microscopes show that the particles in the paste are very porous, which makes it a good insulator. Other tests showed the paste contained lithium and bromine, bound into compounds in the paste. Microscopically, it looks like a diatom absorbent, such as kitty-litter or any common industrial oil absorbent.”

    seems to have made some thing called Firepaste that does the same job.

    pykrete expensive?

    yes if you use conventional sources of power

    This invention by joseph newman could produce power at a very low cost..

    The Energy Machine of Joseph Newman

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Energy_Machine_of_Joseph_Newman

    http://www.josephnewman.com/

    he also has a theory on where the energy is coming from.

    cheap energy could be used to produce drink water for the sea and with the use of horticulture lights crops could be growen all year round.

    In a book downladable on his web site.

    Eric Roberts Laithwaite also has intrest this to say about gyrospce and gravty that link in to what joseph newman says.

    http://www.gyroscopes.org/heretic.asp

    Eric Laithwaite work on could be used to make a space craft that is anti gravty and inentia.

    This could be use to travel in to space and make a sister country in space.

    to help stop the pykrete from melting it could be insulated with a material called Starlite

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starlite

    starelite would need to be covered in a water proof material.

    yes I know most scientist say these invention are not possible.

    to my mind there is just as much bad science out there as bad economic models out there.
