Meet the NASA scientist devising a starship warp drive


“Two Loopholes to alter the properties of space and time”:
·        One is a wormhole
·        The other is a space warp























New Energy Revolution exceedingly beyond wind and solar power
Past the video and the NASA scientist article, we will attempt to contrast a ‘light bulb’ concept to shine a light toward the dark, warped, and tangled explanations of “WORMHOLES”, “SPACE WARPS”, “STRING THEORIES” AND “TOE” (theory of everything) for a more common sense, simplified, mathematically viable, and technologically  feasible FTL Electrogravitic Drive. A LARGER GRASP OF OUR DEFINITIONS WILL BE IN ORDER (see previous posts and StarSteps, Field Propulsion





To pave the way for rapid interstellar travel, NASA propulsion researcher Harold "Sonny" White plans to manipulate space-time in the lab

The idea that nothing can exceed the speed of light limits our interstellar ambitions. How do we get round this?
Within general relativity, there are two loopholes that allow you to go somewhere very quickly, overcoming the restriction of the speed of light. One is a wormhole and the other is a space warp.








What is a space warp and how can it help?
A space warp works on the principle that you can expand and contract space at any speed. Take a terrestrial analogy. In airports we have moving walkways that help you cover distance quicker than you would otherwise. You are walking along at 3 miles an hour, and then you step onto the walkway. You are still walking at 3 miles an hour, but you are covering the distance much more quickly relative to somebody who isn't on the belt.
What would a starship with warp drive be like?
Imagine an American football, for simplicity, that has a toroidal ring around it attached with pylons. The football is where the crew and robotic systems would be, while the ring would contain exotic matter called negative vacuum energy, a consequence of quantum mechanics. The presence of this toroidal ring of negative vacuum energy is what's required from the math and physics to be able to use the warp trick.
What would it be like to travel at warp speed?
You would have an initial velocity as you set off, and then when you turn on the ring of negative vacuum energy it augments your velocity. Space would contract in front of the spacecraft and expand behind it, sending you sliding through warped space-time and covering the distance at a much quicker rate. It would be like watching a film in fast forward.
Even if travelling at warp speed is theoretically possible, don't the huge energy requirements make it unlikely?
When the idea was first proposed mathematically in 1994 it required a vast amount of negative vacuum energy which made the idea seem impossible. I did some work in 2011 and 2012 as part of the 100 Year Starship symposium and discovered ways to reduce the energy requirements by many orders of magnitude, so for a 10-metre diameter spacecraft with a velocity of 10 times light speed, I can reduce the negative energy needed.
How close are you to making this a reality?
We are very much in the science rather than the technology phase. We have got some very specific and controlled steps to take to create a proof of concept, to show we have properly understood and applied the math and physics. To that end we will try to generate a microscopic instance of a warp bubble in the lab and measure it.
If successful is the next stop Alpha Centauri?
We don't just go from the lab to an interstellar mission. There will be intermediate steps, other things we would do with this long before we get to some of the romantic pictures of a captain on the bridge telling the helmsman to engage warp drive.

  • THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LIGHT AND MATTER –THE QUANTITY C IS THE KINETIC ENERGY EQUIVALENT OF THE MASS ENERGY OF MATTER, as defined by E=MC2 (which incorporates space and time – “ the old concept “observations obtained by observers in different frames of reference linked through a system of coordinate transformations needs to be revisited and overhauled.
  • Velocity is defined as being the degree of change in location per unit of time - If the time becomes zero, the motion must also become zero. Velocity has no meaning or significance except as an observed kinetic energy differential between two specified points of reference
  • TIME: Many of the difficulties which we encounter in our attempt to understand the operation of the natural laws arise because of our severely restricted concept of the nature of time. Time follows the same curve of natural law which is apparent in the operation of all the basic factors of nature, and again the radius of that curvature is measured by the quantity C. Follow the example in StarSteps which puts us in a unique position from which we can, from a single point in time, observe ourselves occupying three rather widely separated positions in space.
  • SPACE: The degree of separation which exists between any two bodies is determined by the degree of curvature of the natural laws which exist between them. In making observations, of course, we must remember that, since the natural laws are relative, the mass of the body itself influences the degree of curvature
  • The natural laws are not absolute, but relative -  that is, the size and shape of the curve of one law is dependent upon the value and position  of the others - in other words, the value of one can be altered between any two reference points by altering the value or relationship of the other.  
  • If a differential of energy equal to the quantity C exists between the observer and the point which he is observing, the natural laws will be suspended.   
  • If the energy differential is in excess of the quantity C, the laws will appear to operate in reverse at that point.  
  • The Bell device was designed to use high-speed counter-rotating components filled with specialized materials and energized by electromagnetic energy to induce “torsion” effects and thus control gravity and other significant effects. 
  • We refer not only to the charges in the outer shell of the atom but to those within as well, and especially to the fact, not always realized, that the neutron possesses both a positive and a negative charge, although when united within the neutron they are not discernible as charges, but exist as energy which produces the gravitational field.
