This is my first post on the site - please forgive any noobish actions on my part, I will learn in time.
I signed up for this site a few weeks ago, I stumbled across an article about the USS Eldridge and the Philidelphia Experiment. That prompted me to
sign up and add my somewhat limited experiences with the Government and my family.
My mother is a Phd in mathematics, genius of a person, named Top Ten Smartest People in Los Angeles in LA Magazine about 10 years ago, Mensa and
Prometheius Society, ect. About 6 years ago, she started work for NASA and JPL. I didnt know much about her work, just that it had to do with Mars
landings and/or Mars surface mappings. About a year into her working, she co-developed a propulsion/delivery system that would allow a spacecraft to
move from one orbital to the next without expending any fuel. She called this idea the "Slingshot". It was in essence a large circular structure
that would be placed in space at certain coordinates, and the ship or shuttle would fly through this object and be "Slingshot" into the next
orbital. These would be built one by one, sent into orbit, and then upon completion, we would have a series of Slingshots that could effectively send
a shuttle style ship directly to Mars without buring a massive amount of fuel. Soon after I heard about this idea, mom started complaining about
being followed home from work. She taught at a high school and went to JPL after work, sometimes on weekends. The only vehicle she saw was a large
white van with CA EXEMPT plates. There was no real interaction between mom and the white vans, only following her once in a great while AND seeing
one outside the high school on 2 separate occasions. Never at the house (to my knowledge). Over the next 6 months or so, talk about the project has
since ceased and she no longer works for either company. She doesnt talk about it much, and I dont ask. She now works with robotics and self reliant
My question is: Has anyone seen ANY information on this Slingshot idea anywhere? I have the feeling some major FUEL companies might not want this
type of project to be completed. Think of the massive amount of fuel that would be saved, not to mention the budget for this idea to come to fruition
was 10% of what was projected. ( I remember mom saying it was a 5billion dollar project as opposed to a 50billion dollar government idea.) So
therefore the government wouldnt get the liquid assests they expected. I have Google'd myself to death looking for any info but I have been so far
unsuccessful. I am not a spook myself - so im not going to raid my moms personal files to find information. I have asked her recently to show me
what she has - and she only replies that "its all at work".
Any insight or help would be appreciated. I will post more info as I come across it. Again please forgive me if I have posted redundant or useless
information. Dont flame the noob.
