(snip really fascinating article)

This brings to mind that I've heard of a mirror which will bounce a
back in the direction it came from, regardless of the angle--I thought
was a "cognate mirror" but search engines don't seem to find it by that
so I may been mistaken.  Does anyone know the location of a basic
article on
this? (Obligatory dragging in a topic: maybe this would make good PSB
for a
Reflex Field?)

Tom also suggested a Full Thrust Physics Primer, which I will happily
on my site under the name "Physics for Space Cadets".  Anyone who wishes
contribute an article is welcome--I already have the basic equations for
linear acceleration and such, but I don't mind posting different
of the same  topic.

For both subjects above, e-mail me at
