pH Aac2

There are problems with interstellar ramjets: when putting actual numbers in equation (8.5), and even assuming V of the order of the speed of light c, the scooping area to collect 1 GW is of order of 1012m2, or a square 103 x 103 km. In fact, our Sun is in a region of our Galaxy where pH may be even lower than assumed
