Since the dawn of powered flight we have essentially flown the same way, that is aerodynamically; with wings, a tail, a propeller, jet or rocket.
In order for us to really return to space such as to colonize the moon or Mars, there have to be some major technological breakthroughs in the way we travel, both here on Earth as well as in space. It is totally infeasible to even consider venturing back into space utilizing chemical propelled rockets as a propulsion mechanism. They are too costly, incredibly inefficient, and limited in their capabilities, not even mentioning the lengthy travel times. With the state of the US economy, we’re not likely to see the return of manned spaceflight beyond crude orbiting craft anytime in the near future.
Well then if not rockets, what? If you’ve ever done any serious reading on Ufology, not the crap thrown at us by the news media, but commentary from academic researchers in the field, it’s apparent that UFOs, whatever they really are, or are from, use something referred to as “field propulsion”. This is where the engine of said vehicle generates a powerful energy field that surrounds the craft.
This field, which is in one respect electromagnetic, but in another, is not, enables the craft to essentially de-couple from the earth’s gravity and use such a mechanism to achieve lift, vector thrusting and attain low-earth-orbit (LEO) or even geostationary orbit, using absolutely no chemical propellant whatsoever.
In my book, Aliens Above, Ghosts Below: Explorations of the Unknown, the discussion of field propulsion in all of its potential applications is discussed in detail. In fact, by adopting such field propulsion to replace the turbofan engines of today will allow us to travel anywhere on earth in under an hour with virtually zero consumption or eventual pollution of chemical fuels whatsoever.
There would be no frictional heating or g-loading normally associated with high supersonic/hypersonic flight. In fact, you wouldn’t even feel the acceleration up to over 250,000 feet cruising altitude. What’s really intriguing about this type of propulsion mechanism is that you could be moving at Mach 15+, make a sudden ninety degree turn and not be crushed to death by the forces of inertia and momentum. The reason for this is that with the field propulsion you’ve essentially turned your own vehicle into it’s own little gravity well, where everything in and on the vehicle moves uniformly, which is not the case with any form of contemporary propulsion methods.
Can we currently build such devices? Good question. My book makes some rather dramatic claims about such in every direction. There are tantalizing hints that such technology is already known about in some circles, yet not sufficiently developed to deploy in either a military or commercial application.
Are we talking about anti-gravity here? Yep. Might this be applied to cars, trucks, trains, ships and the like? Yep. It’s all discussed in my book.
However, there are powerful forces out there that would probably not like this technology to be commercialized. The oil companies, the power companies and the military (this would make the ultimate weapon delivery system that would be immune to all but directed energy weapons).
Might this technology see the light of day anytime soon? I wouldn’t bet on it. At least not until we really do run out of chemical energy sources. Before we can build the starship Enterprise, we must first develop true field propulsion. This may be a really bad pun here, but the gravity of this situation is well beyond the grasp of most people due to their unfamiliarity of this subject and the physics behind it. What does any of this have to do with the paranormal, read the book and you’ll find out. In the future, this may end up being the ONLY way to travel.
