What inspired you to come up with new means of making Pykrete
I was reading Winston Churchill's history of the Second World War and when he spoke of Pykrete, it fit with reading I had done in the field of nuclear science.
What applications could pykrete be used for?
Piers for bridge construction, housing of nuclear reactors and radioactive materials, ballistic shielding in schools. For example, children secured in one room could have an adjacent room blocked by ice impervious to gunfire.
Where is pykrete currenty use
The only application in current use is by a company called Bombas and Parr. They have produced a non-melting popsicle using edible fruit binders.
What makes you think you can succeed when others have failed?
The scientific principles are clear and can be demonstrated to dramatic effect by watching a block of Pykrete being shot by a firearm. Or a girl eating a popsicle with a blowtorch and she is unscathed. More importantly, no serious research has been done to show limits of technology. The fact that no one has tried something before, does not mean it can't be done.
