For anyone interested in space travel, here's a short update on trying to use saucers.
The list here above only mentions some common models and variations I had seen at the time, not any of the ones later created, which are very effective for special tasks on the astral (or physical if needed) and for being used by AI servitors.
The simple green/lyran saucer is still, because of its simplicity, the best model to use for practicing saucer flight from the physical and up.
The Queen recommended using zen meditation to reach a state of freedom from gravity to be able to physically board any ship. I have been practicing this within the scope of the exercises I picked from the Hatha Yoga Pradipika during last summer. In the beginning I didn't have this as a goal either, so maybe half of that time (5 months at most?) was used to practice with this intent.
Now was the first time I was able to perform a first person view "astral" travel directly from the physical, using that simple saucer. I'm saying "astral" because the point is to no move in the astral but to move in the physical. Saucers of this kind are not visible to the regular eye when used normally because they move "faster than light", alternating between locations so that light does not reflect off of their surface. They are still real material objects, they're just "lightless" in the same manner as super sonic missiles are silent because the sound doesn't catch up with them.
By visualizing the inside of the saucer (which I've done many times before, with any of them) and sitting down in the driver seat while doing meditation in quarter lotus and a strong focus on the 3rd eye chakra, I was able to enter. I should point out that this is still bilocation travel, not moving completely into the saucer.
At this point, it was necessary to decide on the controls, which took a while as the mental interface had to be created by relating it to my pre existing understanding of controls. I used common control setting from games in 3D, with two levers moving in 8 directions and up/down for one of them, in 3 steps in each direction, to represent all the possible moves performed by a flying vehicle that can hover in place.
Through this I was able to move around in the landscape to look at real events, and also set a target location to let the ship AI move there to look at something.
I feel like the step to full on travel from here is just a matter of practice.
