Mark McCandlish on Faster-Than-Light Travel

This is a transcript of a debate between Mark McCandlish and James Giglio of the National Skeptics Association. The focus of this document is on the topic of "Faster than Light" (FTL) travel both within the context of General Relativity in addition to emerging models of physics. "True, "nothing can…


Martin Tajmar on Gravitomagnetic Research

Dr. Martin Tajmar details the experimental parameters involved with gravitomagnetic research in superconductors. Tajmar describes the rotating superconductor laboratory apparatus, accelerometer setup, and potential sources of error involved with the remarkable measurements of a force similar to…


Richard Gauthier on Superluminal Particle Physics

Dr. Richard Gauthier describes a new physical model incorporating the notion of superluminal motion as an explanation for the "zitterbewegung" or "jitter" in the electron. His model is based on a relatively simple mathematical description of the electron quantum's trajectory, which suggests that…


Greg Meholic on Faster-Than-Light Physics

Aerospace engineer Greg Meholic describes Faster Than Light particle physics in a fluid-dynamics model with applcations for Breakthrough Propulsion Physics. Meholic is a communications session co-chair for Section-F of the STAIF Conference, focusing on emerging space propulsion physics…


Gravitational Communications for Telecom

Colby Harper & Gary Stephenson unveil a business plan for near-term gravitational communications at the STAIF 2007 conference. The concept, which involves a benchmarked approach to developing first an ubiquitous time-standard and later full-fledged high-bandwidth communications, involves the…


Gravitational Transistors

Relativity theory usually describes gravity as being an aetherial warping, but then sticks magnetism into the traditional duality of electric & magnetic force. I've read that Einstein modeled his description of gravity after his research into magnetism, although I've always seen magnetism…


Eric Davis on Hyperspace for Space Travel

Dr. Eric Davis presents Dr. Giorgio Fontana's "Hyperspace for Space Travel". Fontana postulates that a localized strong gravitational field may allow travel to different local universes or Faster Than Light (FTL) travel with warp drives within the same local universe, thus potentially allowing the…


Bonnie Dunbar discusses the Museum of Flight

We're joined by Dr. Bonnie Dunbar, former NASA astronaut and currently the Director of the Museum of Flight in Seattle. She shares experiences in the space program as well as some insights into her vision for the museum's future, and the role that it plays in preserving our aerospace history &…


Fabrizio Pinto on Quantum Vacuum Engineering

Dr. Fabrizio Pinto describes his vision for a new type of propulsion system based on dispersion force engineering in curved spacetime, as well as his role as the CEO of Interstellar Technologies Corporation and the company's research into quantum vacuum engineering and nanotechnology. Interstellar…


John Thomas discusses the Searl Effect

Few will dispute that dreams are powerful stuff. For centuries mystics have maintained that dreams allow people to see into the future, and more recently the science of psychology has said that at dreams allow the unconscious mind to solve problems that often elude the waking mind. Dreams play a…
