Alpha Centauri in two weeks? So how would we actually know if they got there or not.

All trips into deep space (outside our solar neighborhood using some kind of exotic "FTL" or warp drive) are one-way. Even if a ship was somehow able to implode into itself and vector off to some nearby star, the trip might seem "instantaneous" to them, but time is going to chug right along for us.

Here's the thing though, to make a working warp propulsion system, it's necessary to know the underlying mechanism of how gravity itself works. In that regard, it's legitimate as a topic of scientific research. Get one licked, and you'll be able to do the other. (Not to mention the basis of some unified field theory.)

If you regard gravity from a general relativity perspective, you shoulnd't count mass as mass but as it's energy equivalent. Apparently there's some limit to how much energy may exist at a given point in space for a given time. (I suspect that's what these interferometer test rigs are looking for.) Exceed that limit and spacetime expands. Somehow they're connected. There's some density gradient of spacetime that causes a change in distance as it's passed over. Change in distance over change in time is acceleration, is it not? And that's your gravity. (Since matter is just packets of super-dense energy.)

Part of this relationship has to do with the speed of light. It's is maintained as a ratio that a photon travels in space for a given time over a known distance. (However since time and space can be made to expand or contract under certain conditions, it should be considered a coefficient rather than a constant.) It probably has to do with photons as being one of the means to carry energy through space.

I suspect the other part relating to energy density is somewhere in here... en.wikipedia.org... (The electric/plasma universe guys will probably love that part.)

So if you have the means to exceed a certain energy density at a point in space, it should act just as the mass equivalent of that energy does. Under the right conditions, energy should also become matter. (Perhaps the atoms we're made of are a particular type of warp-bubble singularities themselves?) Likewise if there's anything to virtual-pair annihilations forming a quantum foam in a vacuum, then it may be plausible that a strong enough magnetic field could might be able to void that space of pair formation. (The pair halves are charged, are they not?) The differential effect of that void may then effectively work as negative energy.

That seems plausible enough, so why wouldn't NASA and various physics researchers be on it? Not to mention who doesn't want to see us really get outside the Solar System.

As for the current business angle? I could only imagine if you were in the super-conductor business, it seems like this research would be an interesting venture to get into. (Outside of making medical scanning machines or devising mag-lev systems.) If it works, the first in will be very profitable. (At least until we move past a resource limited economy, in which case that doesn't really matter anymore.)

I'm also curious about the Fermi Paradox. Some compare us to ants in the big scheme of things. Ants are perfectly fine to ignore... They do what they do without hurting anything. Until they can get inside your house. It seems only then they're worthy of attention. Thus if the technology works, I suspect it should answer the Fermi Paradox question pretty quick. (Unlike ants, we should be able to communicate. Hopefully anyone out there will be willing to talk things through first in a way we understand before resorting to harsher methods.)

i always thought it was funny that nasa and nazi were so close considering the scientists were comprised of so many ex nazi's


You mean the scientists used to live in Germany right?? Or do you actually convince yourself that they had a choice whether or not to "join" a certain political party. In almost any country during serious wartime, refusing to contribute to the war effort is widely regarded as treason.

I think people these days don't even know what "Nazi" means. It was kinda like Democrat, or Tea-Party, or Whig, or Tory. It was just a POLITICAL party. NSDAP = Nazionale Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiten Partei. (National Socialistic, German-Workers-party) aka the Nationalist party, aka nazi for short.

This is maybe a bit off topic. I had an old man, who was a gunner on a Navy vessel stationed in Hawaii during WW2, tell me about receiving orders to fire on a "disc" that was hovering near the ship. He said he could see his stream of fire arcing around the object and then straightening out as it went past. This sounded to me like a description of something warping space around itself. He seemed to be giving an honest account and had nothing to gain by lying.


All Conjuncture Mode just a Thought here Folk's

like the Battle of Los Angels Incident

what the Craft these craft are doing it is... by some how some way going into a Possible inter dimensional Space or a Cross in between this Dimension we are living and the Next Dimension to Ours .. aka Riding the Boarder Line .. is a Possible explanation.. with the UFO like Craft, and the Military Shooting thousand of Rounds of Artillery asit was passing by and the Round hit a force field or Passed right through it ... then you here talks about the Nazi found a way warping into another a semi Dimension or causing Anti gravity .. and another of the Philadelphia Experiment a Naval Ship USS Eldridge warping through Time to it last destination Norfolk Virgina Navel Base all Conspiracy of the Tales of Rumors
explaining something Inter dimensional. and Lately We have been hearing about actual Wormholes and Portals like Natural portals to and from the Earth & Sun

What about this instead of going through all this Mess and create a Black Hole withing the Ship

THE!! Gravity Drive !!

If they are really going to pull another star wars crap again could they have the originality of not copying the ship off Star Trek. I am sure I could get a 3D model my arse becoming Benny Hill, it doesn't mean my arse is or was Benny.

Correct. Calling all German soldiers/scientists Nazi's is like calling all the American soldiers Democrats.

So we would be talking to their great grandchildren in that time. How much food would need to be aboard that ship to make a trip like that. Stuff would wear out in that time, you would need a factory aboard to make new parts. It doesn't seem practical to do this, that ship keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I'm not trying to burst your warp drive bubble. What I'd like to know is how to circumvent the problem, and catastrophic results, of hitting things at that speed.



The image is, as I'm sure you've seen, a fleck of paint that nearly pierced the windscreen of the space shuttle some years ago.

Kind Regards

Lol Good Point. These concepts come out from time to time to secure funding for nasa pipe dreams.

My understanding of the technology is limited but from what I can gather the ship itself isnt moving through space, the space around the ship is folded so its not inertial movement in the traditional sense of the word. So Space paint shouldnt be a problem. It will simply float past and around the ship.


So, theorhetically cool for the ship and crew, not so cool for anything that is forced to warp around the ship though...like a planet or a moon.

If a bubble of space time 10 meters in diameter is shot through the core of a planet at 10 X the speed of light, it's probably not going to be a good day for anything alive on that world. Even if there's no life, the chain reaction might even destabilise the unfortunate planet's entire solar system and parent star(s).

I would assume something like the D-Wave, or whatever new and improved version will be around when this ship is built will do the navigating and actual flying of the ship...the crew will be for routine maintenance and any possible meet and greets when they arrive i suppose.

I've not read this thread completely, but i'm a little amused at this news when i recall the dozens, probably hundreds of times i've had someone claim the sole reason they don't believe ETs visit Earth is because the journey here would be impossible.

Sa la vie.

I have heard that some trees when being in another realm can do this already. The amount of trees that are on earth is close to the number of stars?? Just something i heard that has to do with all information entering a black hole is saved at the top of the vortex before it is consumed inside and that info can be retrieved from the source and that reminded me of the way teleportation might work.


1) what are trees in another realm and what is it you think they can do?

2) there are more stars in our observable universe than grains of sand on Earth

3) information sucked into a black hole is stored in a 2D/holographic format on the surface/event horizon

i do not have the answers only nudges in the right direction.

Dr. Harold "Sonny" White is still working on a warp drive at NASA's Johnson Space Center. Their work is still in the experimental stages but that doesn't mean they can't imagine already what the real life Enterprise ship should look like according to their math. You're looking at it right now. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...


I CAN"T STAND the Star Trek ships designs.

They lack imagination!

I want a replicator instead!

That's understandable. You want an official word of consent before making any conclusions despite historical and financial records making the official narrative shady at best. But Gary McKinnon, a fellow UK brother, was acknowledged as hacking into NASA, Pentagon, DOD, and the Navy for almost 2 years, and has stated that there is a secret space program and alien tech.

Just FYI, he has to be monitored and restricted whenever using a computer or internet now for life (for years he had a complete ban), his financial statements and current location are monitored 24/7, faces constant extradition threats and harassment from the U.S. who want to imprison him for 60 years (in one case even execute him), and he has not even gained a penny for all of this trouble or tried to. I think he still lives with family. He has autism and it was his life passion and gift to hack, without hurting others, and freely use the internet. He has surrendered all of that to bring us this news. So why is the word of a man who surrendered everything for nothing except revealing the truth worth less than someone who is paid to give you a narrative from a source that, historically, can't even be trusted?

www.dailymail.co.uk...

I would take McKinnon's word as the official story over lying, crooked snakes any day. That's where we have differing views but both understandable. The snakes control our society, so, technically, they control what is real and what is not when they want. 9/11 strong case in point.

How can they straighten up past the object? Law of conservation of momentum. He saw aaaan hallucination

I think you should clarify this by saying, "As far as I know, all trips to deep space are one-way."

What about worm holes and bending space/time etc? Don't forget my friend----our little earth is still in kindergarten. And well, even that is too generous. I'd say we wouldn't even be candidates for home schooling.

Not a 100% on this, but technically the ship isn't moving faster than light, space is being bent. Picture an automated walkway at an airport where the ground beneath your feet moves.

The whole principle of not traveling faster than light remains intact...space just gets shorter

Just relaying what I was told. He was puzzled by the incident himself. The bullets weren't being deflected. They were, according to him, curving around the object and then resuming their original trajectory. I don't think he was hallucinating. I'm aware that this makes no sense based our understanding of physics. After he told me this story he just sat, staring at the sky and shaking his head. "Damnedest thing I ever seen," he said.

And ...all some scientist has to do is claim they are positive there is limitless oil on the planet orbiting Alpha Centauri and our gov will get this ship built in a year
Absent that we will continue to spend a Billion a day on the middle east.
