You still need expend the fuel to get all your equipment up to the same speed and direction as the comet.  Since the comet is most likely not going exactly where you want it to, you then have to spend additional energy to correct its course.  At that point you are better off just accelerating your equipment to the proper vector by itself.

@Creatch-
The Enterprise uses anti-matter as its primary energy source, with fusion reactor backups (I bought my mom the Star Trek Technical Manual years ago).

Mmmmhhh, remember it's a plane basically so there's a pilot telling the wings and tail to control & make adjustments to the direction. No energy whatsoever, it's just the air that's used.

azathoth - FAIL. lol

You realize there is no air in space, yes? 
And if you're trying to use it in Earth's atmosphere, you have to bleed off so much velocity (or shoot right back into space) that you can just use a suborbital flight (what Bronson's Virgin is trying to do).

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Yes I do, just didn't use the right name, air, velocity, pression, power, energy, all the same to me. What I'm saying is just look at the way they went to Mom Motherfucking Moon or the Space Shuttles, they could nevigate these so why not my Comet Ship???

^ Crazy. Who would want a shitty sound system in their ears all day? Though the other "various sensors" mentioned in the article sound pretty cool.

Yeah, I don't give a shit about that crap, what I want is a freaking Hard Drive. Still a nice fott towards this direction this is.

Damn Lord Freeman is a wise guy, loving this:

Are you talking about intelligent life?
I think life itself is intelligent. All life is intelligent. Otherwise it doesn't exist.

Disturbingly awesome! I'd want one as a pet, but I'd be afraid of it flinging sperm and eggs at me.

Nice post. Gotta love Stephen Hawking and Michio Kaku.
I believe time travel is entirely possible. Didn't Richard Feynman theorize that anti-matter particles are in fact particles moving backward in time? In any case, this universe is certainly wacky enough for time travel, and as far as I know, it's not a physical impossibility. Though I do need to do some more reading up on the subject...
