Scientists Invent a Tractor Beam




Researchers from the Australian National University have announced that they have built a device that can move small particles a meter and a half using only the power of light.

The device works by shining a hollow laser beam around tiny glass particles. The air surrounding the particle heats up, while the dark center of the beam stays cool. When the particle starts to drift out of the middle and into the bright laser beam, the force of heated air molecules bouncing around and hitting the particle's surface is enough to nudge it back to the center.

Beam me up Scotty !!! Might soon be a reality
even though I doubt this project is that far
along at present. However, just moving small
objects with light is an advancement we need
to pay close attention to. Who knows, maybe
one day this device might be standard feature
on our space fairing vehicles.

however, I do no foresee this device being
used in space any time soon as it depends
on heating the air around an object to make it
work. I don't think there is air out in space.
Maybe some modifications are needed.
But it is a start !!!
hmmmmmm

Explanation: 2S&1F!

Doesn't relativity include space frames that can be dragged by gravity???

Personal Disclosure: Yep quite possible... even if the tractor beam device is massive!

Sounds like light is an ether sound wave and not an EM wave.
So produce a larger ether sound wave and tractor up cattle.
Better yet tractor the ship up, it works cause thats what Foos do.

pardon my ignorance
but what are foos ????

in the first minuet
Foos

also photographed over long island

also the many bright UFO sightings

Thought to be the handy work of Nikola Tesla developed in WWII Germany and flown to
US New Mexico 1945.
Since the bright light is all we see, its Foo or nothing.
Or actual low level unknown ship sightings that are not lit up.
Such as with Zamora, Heflin, Walton, the Hudson Valley and Belgium aircraft.
All have the tractor beam effect underneath the ships.

whatever application this phenomenon ends up being applied towards, it won't be as a "tractor beam".

My bet would be on HFGW, a la Dr. Robert Baker. At least, at first. It seems to be the only technology that I have found in development that has a chance of succeeding (assuming the eminent grav wave researcher in the world has his math right). We are using China dollars to fund it by conducting research operations primarily in China.

Even Buzz Aldrin is involved (and it is likely the cause of his statement about the Chinese being the next nation on the moon).

Thats about Foos.
But the reference is actually about the Foos being suspended by sound waves or similar
waves generated by the Laser light that caused suspension.
Heating by laser light causing suspension or actual mechanical pressure.
Light waves are too small and high a frequency to give superior suspension.

It heats air to move things, and there's no air in space, so it won't work in space, right? It's still interesting though, thanks.

There is nothing in space to work with so all is naught.
Only the Tesla advocates have a material to work with that pervades all space.
So only they can fly the universe.
However there are problems with leaving the planet.
Thus we only see unknown ship fly around the Earth on rare occasions on the so
called tractor beam technology.

Makes a person proud to be a trekkie.
I've got to brush up on my Klingon now. Most people in Cali are learning Spanish but I'll have the advantage later.

I was really happy for you for a bit. 3 posts on one page and you hadn't mentioned Tesla once! Then you go and spoil it.

You may notice that I give you a lot of "foe's". I do this every time I see one of your posts that mention Tesla and I assure you it is an absolute rarity to find a post of yours that doesn't mention him.

It's an obsession that has gone past ridiculous and is now set firmly in the creepy. It's really annoying! It's like you have had no other stimulus outside a Tesla biography since the day you were born. I wish I knew a way to do some kind of search which told me how many posts you have made and how many of them have mentioned Tesla. I reckon it must be around 99.95%.

Get something new in your life. There is more to this World than Tesla. Now that every one of your several hundred Tesla books are unreadable, due to the pages being stuck together, why not go out on a limb and pick a different kind of book from the book shops shelf? One that doesn't even mention Tesla and has nothing to do with physics?

If you do find something else to interest you though, please, please, please don't get obsessed with it.

Try u2u for personal contact as no one is interested
in opinions of others or of me in topics under discussion.

In fact people do what to know about the Tesla advocacy
as others are aware of the science dictatorship.

Let science truly disprove anything Tesla discovered.
Just let them try without lies because it is impossible.
ED: Tractor beams use the ether just as the laser
does in the OP example. I told him how it works
and the reasons stated are out right science lies.

No fault of the OP. but the write up is misleading in claiming that the particles are being moved by light. As has been pointed out, they are being moved by air... a gas, The first applications of this will certainly not be in space or propulsion, but in nanotechnology manufacture. Materials scientists will probably start experimenting with different gases as the matrix for different molecular components and see what advantages there might be. Not nearly as mind-blowing as "quantum teleportation," but give them a few years.

To move something you need mechanical force.
Where did the force come from.
The gas can forced by pressure.
Can light waves being EM cause the uplift without
being a sound wave or pressure waves itself.
Another lie of science showing up in the microcosm.
And Tesla said as much and is ignored.

The device works by shining a hollow laser beam around tiny glass particles. The air surrounding the particle heats up, while the dark center of the beam stays cool. When the particle starts to drift out of the middle and into the bright laser beam, the force of heated air molecules bouncing around and hitting the particle's surface is enough to nudge it back to the center.

From the article quoted in the OP. The mechanical energy comes from heat. No ether required.

That would be a lie as I said.
Light is a pressure or sound wave in the ether and thus pushes the particles.
ED: Heat would come from the agitation of particles because of the sound waves
as told many times by Tesla.
ED: Light comes from quantum jumps in the atom, It is a pulse.
It pushes something. Oh no ether to push, too bad, it has to be heat.
Lets not get into heat transfer in the ether but pulsing the ether agitates
particles and is the source of heating. But heating pulses need pressure
and tuning correctly has been called a tractor beam and not a heat beam.
So they are wrong. It has nothing to do with traction.
ED: The very source of light. The quantum pulse should have proven to
all the nature of light Tesla said as being the correct nature of light.
ED: there are interesting comments on the article

I wonder what kind of military application this will have? Im sure they will find a way to make this into a weapon!

A hollow laser beam,
Does that mean a ring of light is transmitted.

Any chance this ring would act exactly like a revolving smoke ring and
naturally act in pushing up small particles as light is still an ether pressure
phenomena.
The flat saucer of Rex Heflin did produce a ring in photographic evidence
in a UFO Hunters episode.
Can't say if saucers move by ring propulsion but there are multiple side
propulsion directors for those 90 degree turns.

ED: That would track as a series rings to move objects closer.
Sounds like the technology is well understood.
