Humans can build spaceships capable of reaching the Moon within minutes; a flight to Mars will take 2.5 hours, and a flight to Alpha Centauri, which is scores of light years away from Earth, will take a mere 80 days.

Incredible journeys can be a reality, say two German Doctors of Physics who put forth an audacious theory. Walter Dresher from the University of Innsbruck joined forces with Joachim Hoiser, a leading scientist with the German company HPCC-Space Gmbh.

“The German physicists build their work on a theory formulated by the German scientist Burkhard Heim. The theory was put together in the 1950s,” says Vadim Pimenov, deputy director of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Physics under the Russian Academy of Sciences, professor at the Lomonosov Moscow State University. “Heim, a brilliant physicist and philosopher, was the first scientist who began thinking over the principles of space flights using a “hyper-engine.”

The concept seems improbable at first sight. In actuality, it is a byproduct of the efforts aiming to combine the quantum mechanics and the general theory of relativity – two theories that so far have successfully foiled all the attempts to make them “friendly,” mostly due to differences in the interpretation of space and time. Heim made use of the Einstein concept regarding gravitation as a manifestation of distortions in the “fabric” of space and time. However, he suggested that all kinds of fundamental interaction be considered a manifestation of the complete set of spatial dimensions.

Heim introduced two additional dimensions since the existing ones were not enough for proving his theory. The physicist reportedly proved that gravitation and electromagnetism could combine in his 6-D space. He also maintained that a gravitational force could turn into an electromagnetic one, and vice versa, under certain conditions. It is still unclear whether Heim succeeded in combining the quantum mechanics and the general theory of relativity. For reasons unknown, the scientist refused to made public all details of his theory until he carried out a “decisive” experiment. The experiment did not materialize either due to technical reasons or a lack of funds.

“The German physicist Wolfgang Dresher dusted off Heim’s ‘strange ideas’ and threw in two more dimensions,” says Prof. Pimenov. “Dresher made a mathematical description of an 8-dimentional universe, the Heim-Dresher space, ‘featuring’ two more kinds of interaction,” says Prof. Pimenov.


there you have it. sooner or later humans will be walking around on mars...
all we have to do now is perfect the hyper engine and create an electromagnetic feild we can use to go friken fast.

cool stuff hey?

I'll believe it when I see it.

It seems that this is all still theory and at a very early stage,I agree though if we could build propulsion systems like this we would be in very exciting times.

it is quite interesting, but only in the academic, intellectual, theorizing world...

on a practical level, the Aug 23rd announcement of a joint mission to Mars
by China and Russia, seems the method & possibly the ethnicity of men walking
on Mars.

see: news.xinhuanet.com...

if your a space enthuisiest(sp?), you might want to copy down the names and titles of all the scientists named in this short article....
for ongoing research of the Chinese Space Programs

Mars in 2.5 hours??

i would guess that the gradual accelleration
and the gradual, controlled decelleration,
would take up the total 2.5 hours...
?? but could any person take the G-Forces involved ??

trajectory, angular momentum, & other laws/physics would seem to be co-opted

There's already a significantly long thread about this, using a more reliable source (I don't trust pravda).

Exactly. The original article does not mention sending humans. The g-forces would kill them you are correct. For example to leave the earth and accelerate at 5gs, after 2.5 hours a ship would still only be traveling at 450 km/s. And even at that maximum rate you would be nowhere near Mars. For example Mars at its closest is around 55 million km from earth, and even traveling the 2.5 hours to get to 450 km/s, you would only have spanned a small fraction of that distance, and could put it on cruise control and still take another 33 more hours to get there!

But it is interesting. Maybe they will come up with a method of suspended animation whereby humans are not damaged by g-forces.
