Creating a large magnetic field really isn't the problem with an MHD drive sub...or boat.

Neither is the variable conductivity of sea water with temperature (drops by almost half going from 20degC to 0DegC).

It's that it's trying to move a huge mass of water. 64lbs/cubic foot, a ton each cubic meter. While MHD has a very high specific impulse, moving that mass is the problem.

Then, even for a boat, moreso for a sub, pushing that water out of the way to move forward...

And there are more practical applications of MHD drive... {{:)

By "The last time Ford sold that many [100,000] V-6 trucks was 1985."...

...are you referring to the 1985 Ranger?

Pretty impressed with the EcoBoost F150 myself. Might replace my 7.3L Diesel...

Coincidentally, I was just reading two recent articles on race car aero development.

Thought you folks would be interested too..

Not to quibble but was it confirmed Aldrin actually drank wine on the Moon? I don't recall a confirmation*...

Yeah, he took communion but that only infrequently includes "The Blood" which itself can be just grape juice...

* of fact, not religion. No Bishop required.

But what about a Dutch roll?

Both types are bad for the stomach.
