EVERY year, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics awards prizes for the best papers presented at its annual conference. Last year’s winner in the nuclear and future flight category went to a paper calling for experimental tests of an astonishing new type of engine. According to the paper, this hyperdrive motor would propel a craft through another dimension at enormous speeds. It could leave Earth at lunchtime and get to the moon in time for dinner. There’s just one catch: the idea relies on an obscure and largely unrecognized kind of physics. Can they possibly be serious?

The AIAA is certainly not embarrassed. What’s more, the US military has begun to cast its eyes over the hyperdrive concept, and a space propulsion researcher at the US Department of Energy’s Sandia National Laboratories has said he would be interested in putting the idea to the test. And despite the bafflement of most physicists at the theory that supposedly underpins it, Pavlos Mikellides, an aerospace engineer at the Arizona State University in Tempe who reviewed the winning paper, stands by the committee’s choice. “Even though such features have been explored before, this particular approach is quite unique,” he says.

Unique it certainly is. If the experiment gets the go-ahead and works, it could reveal new interactions between the fundamental forces of nature that would change the future of space travel. Forget spending six months or more holed up in a rocket on the way to Mars, a round trip on the hyperdrive could take as little as 5 hours. All our worries about astronauts’ muscles wasting away or their DNA being irreparably damaged by cosmic radiation would disappear overnight. What’s more the device would put travel to the stars within reach for the first time. But can the hyperdrive really get off the ground?
”œA hyperdrive craft would put the stars within reach for the first time”

The answer to that question hinges on the work of a little-known German physicist. Burkhard Heim began to explore the hyperdrive propulsion concept in the 1950s as a spin-off from his attempts to heal the biggest divide in physics: the rift between quantum mechanics and Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

Quantum theory describes the realm of the very small – atoms, electrons and elementary particles – while general relativity deals with gravity. The two theories are immensely successful in their separate spheres. The clash arises when it comes to describing the basic structure of space. In general relativity, space-time is an active, malleable fabric. It has four dimensions – three of space and one of time – that deform when masses are placed in them. In Einstein’s formulation, the force of gravity is a result of the deformation of these dimensions. Quantum theory, on the other hand, demands that space is a fixed and passive stage, something simply there for particles to exist on. It also suggests that space itself must somehow be made up of discrete, quantum elements.

In the early 1950s, Heim began to rewrite the equations of general relativity in a quantum framework. He drew on Einstein’s idea that the gravitational force emerges from the dimensions of space and time, but suggested that all fundamental forces, including electromagnetism, might emerge from a new, different set of dimensions. Originally he had four extra dimensions, but he discarded two of them believing that they did not produce any forces, and settled for adding a new two-dimensional “sub-space” onto Einstein’s four-dimensional space-time.

In Heim’s six-dimensional world, the forces of gravity and electromagnetism are coupled together. Even in our familiar four-dimensional world, we can see a link between the two forces through the behaviour of fundamental particles such as the electron. An electron has both mass and charge. When an electron falls under the pull of gravity its moving electric charge creates a magnetic field. And if you use an electromagnetic field to accelerate an electron you move the gravitational field associated with its mass. But in the four dimensions we know, you cannot change the strength of gravity simply by cranking up the electromagnetic field.

In Heim’s view of space and time, this limitation disappears. He claimed it is possible to convert electromagnetic energy into gravitational and back again, and speculated that a rotating magnetic field could reduce the influence of gravity on a spacecraft enough for it to take off.

When he presented his idea in public in 1957, he became an instant celebrity. Wernher von Braun, the German engineer who at the time was leading the Saturn rocket programme that later launched astronauts to the moon, approached Heim about his work and asked whether the expensive Saturn rockets were worthwhile. And in a letter in 1964, the German relativity theorist Pascual Jordan, who had worked with the distinguished physicists Max Born and Werner Heisenberg and was a member of the Nobel committee, told Heim that his plan was so important “that its successful experimental treatment would without doubt make the researcher a candidate for the Nobel prize”.

But all this attention only led Heim to retreat from the public eye. This was partly because of his severe multiple disabilities, caused by a lab accident when he was still in his teens. But Heim was also reluctant to disclose his theory without an experiment to prove it. He never learned English because he did not want his work to leave the country. As a result, very few people knew about his work and no one came up with the necessary research funding. In 1958 the aerospace company Bölkow did offer some money, but not enough to do the proposed experiment.

While Heim waited for more money to come in, the company’s director, Ludwig Bölkow, encouraged him to develop his theory further. Heim took his advice, and one of the results was a theorem that led to a series of formulae for calculating the masses of the fundamental particles – something conventional theories have conspicuously failed to achieve. He outlined this work in 1977 in the Max Planck Institute’s journal Zeitschrift für Naturforschung, his only peer-reviewed paper. In an abstruse way that few physicists even claim to understand, the formulae work out a particle’s mass starting from physical characteristics, such as its charge and angular momentum.

Yet the theorem has proved surprisingly powerful. The standard model of physics, which is generally accepted as the best available theory of elementary particles, is incapable of predicting a particle’s mass. Even the accepted means of estimating mass theoretically, known as lattice quantum chromodynamics, only gets to between 1 and 10 per cent of the experimental values.
Gravity reduction

But in 1982, when researchers at the German Electron Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg implemented Heim’s mass theorem in a computer program, it predicted masses of fundamental particles that matched the measured values to within the accuracy of experimental error. If they are let down by anything, it is the precision to which we know the values of the fundamental constants. Two years after Heim’s death in 2001, his long-term collaborator Illobrand von Ludwiger calculated the mass formula using a more accurate gravitational constant. “The masses came out even more precise,” he says.

After publishing the mass formulae, Heim never really looked at hyperspace propulsion again. Instead, in response to requests for more information about the theory behind the mass predictions, he spent all his time detailing his ideas in three books published in German. It was only in 1980, when the first of his books came to the attention of a retired Austrian patent officer called Walter Dröscher, that the hyperspace propulsion idea came back to life. Dröscher looked again at Heim’s ideas and produced an “extended” version, resurrecting the dimensions that Heim originally discarded. The result is “Heim-Dröscher space”, a mathematical description of an eight-dimensional universe.

From this, Dröscher claims, you can derive the four forces known in physics: the gravitational and electromagnetic forces, and the strong and weak nuclear forces. But there’s more to it than that. “If Heim’s picture is to make sense,” Dröscher says, “we are forced to postulate two more fundamental forces.” These are, Dröscher claims, related to the familiar gravitational force: one is a repulsive anti-gravity similar to the dark energy that appears to be causing the universe’s expansion to accelerate. And the other might be used to accelerate a spacecraft without any rocket fuel.

This force is a result of the interaction of Heim’s fifth and sixth dimensions and the extra dimensions that Dröscher introduced. It produces pairs of “gravitophotons”, particles that mediate the interconversion of electromagnetic and gravitational energy. Dröscher teamed up with Jochem Häuser, a physicist and professor of computer science at the University of Applied Sciences in Salzgitter, Germany, to turn the theoretical framework into a proposal for an experimental test. The paper they produced, “Guidelines for a space propulsion device based on Heim’s quantum theory”, is what won the AIAA’s award last year.

Claims of the possibility of “gravity reduction” or “anti-gravity” induced by magnetic fields have been investigated by NASA before (New Scientist, 12 January 2002, p 24). But this one, Dröscher insists, is different. “Our theory is not about anti-gravity. It’s about completely new fields with new properties,” he says. And he and Häuser have suggested an experiment to prove it.

This will require a huge rotating ring placed above a superconducting coil to create an intense magnetic field. With a large enough current in the coil, and a large enough magnetic field, Dröscher claims the electromagnetic force can reduce the gravitational pull on the ring to the point where it floats free. Dröscher and Häuser say that to completely counter Earth’s pull on a 150-tonne spacecraft a magnetic field of around 25 tesla would be needed. While that’s 500,000 times the strength of Earth’s magnetic field, pulsed magnets briefly reach field strengths up to 80 tesla. And Dröscher and Häuser go further. With a faster-spinning ring and an even stronger magnetic field, gravitophotons would interact with conventional gravity to produce a repulsive anti-gravity force, they suggest.
”œA spinning ring and a strong magnetic field could produce a repulsive anti-gravity force”

Dröscher is hazy about the details, but he suggests that a spacecraft fitted with a coil and ring could be propelled into a multidimensional hyperspace. Here the constants of nature could be different, and even the speed of light could be several times faster than we experience. If this happens, it would be possible to reach Mars in less than 3 hours and a star 11 light years away in only 80 days, Dröscher and Häuser say.

So is this all fanciful nonsense, or a revolution in the making? The majority of physicists have never heard of Heim theory, and most of those contacted by New Scientist said they couldn’t make sense of Dröscher and Häuser’s description of the theory behind their proposed experiment. Following Heim theory is hard work even without Dröscher’s extension, says Markus Pössel, a theoretical physicist at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Potsdam, Germany. Several years ago, while an undergraduate at the University of Hamburg, he took a careful look at Heim theory. He says he finds it “largely incomprehensible”, and difficult to tie in with today’s physics. “What is needed is a step-by-step introduction, beginning at modern physical concepts,” he says.

The general consensus seems to be that Dröscher and Häuser’s theory is incomplete at best, and certainly extremely difficult to follow. And it has not passed any normal form of peer review, a fact that surprised the AIAA prize reviewers when they made their decision. “It seemed to be quite developed and ready for such publication,” Mikellides told New Scientist.

At the moment, the main reason for taking the proposal seriously must be Heim theory’s uncannily successful prediction of particle masses. Maybe, just maybe, Heim theory really does have something to contribute to modern physics. “As far as I understand it, Heim theory is ingenious,” says Hans Theodor Auerbach, a theoretical physicist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich who worked with Heim. “I think that physics will take this direction in the future.”

It may be a long while before we find out if he’s right. In its present design, Dröscher and Häuser’s experiment requires a magnetic coil several metres in diameter capable of sustaining an enormous current density. Most engineers say that this is not feasible with existing materials and technology, but Roger Lenard, a space propulsion researcher at Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico thinks it might just be possible. Sandia runs an X-ray generator known as the Z machine which “could probably generate the necessary field intensities and gradients”.

For now, though, Lenard considers the theory too shaky to justify the use of the Z machine. “I would be very interested in getting Sandia interested if we could get a more perspicacious introduction to the mathematics behind the proposed experiment,” he says. “Even if the results are negative, that, in my mind, is a successful experiment.”

Building A Warp Drive Engine

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________
On June 11th 2014, there was an online article published on the Inquisitr site, entitled, “NASA Is Working On A Warp Drive Ship And the Pictures are Amazing” (see photos immediately below).  The article was focused on the work of theoretical physicist Miguel Alcubierre’s Drive concept http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcubierre drive, that requires the acquisition or creation of some very unique and exotic matter that might remain totally unobtainable at any time in the foreseeable future.  Yet, back in 2010, Dr. Harold “Sunny” White revealed that he, along with a team of NASA’s Johnson Space Center, were hard at work on developing a functional warp drive. Is it just me, or does there appear to be something really wrong with this disclosure?NASA WArp Drive huktzitxzojen9b5nvoiNASA warp-ship-670 

 

 

 

 

What’s so very odd about this article, is that it appears that good, old, ineffective, NASA is totally unaware as to what’s really been going on behind closed doors in very black, Unacknowledged Special Access Programs (USAP’s) within certain factions of our military that have virtually unlimited budgets without any congressional oversight http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special access program.   And that such programs working with one of the largest and most successful aerospace defense contractors, successfully reverse-engineered a UFO to discover how its propulsion technology operates.   Why is it that right the hand doesn’t know what the left hand is really doing?  This is what we call disinformation, my friends.

What better way to distract and deflect our attention from the real programs involved here than by NASA making such extraordinary claims based on only partially correct and unprovable theories that eventually fail to produce any tangible results?   What you’re going to read below is far more accurate in every respect than what was discussed in the aforementioned article.

We’ve all seen Star Trek to the point where it’s now an American icon, with most of its sci-fi technology such as the communicators (flip cell phones), small, high-density, information storage mediums (DVD’s, CD’s, SIMMs), phasers (petawatt class, high-energy lasers) and very small, terabyte data storage computers with flat screen and tablet computers, forecasting and eventually becoming real world items in early 21st century America.

But wait, aren’t we missing a couple of things here?

Damn right.

What about Warp Drive propulsion system and transporters.

For the moment, let’s forget about the transporters and focus only on Warp Drive.  Besides, it’s where I live?  (Okay, bad pun?)

Is it purely science fiction at this point in our technological evolution, or can it really be built and work as shown in Star Trek?

The answer is YES and NO.  There’s good deal of evidence that such technology is within our reach within less than fifty years if enough research and development effort is put forth.

Will it be expensive?

YES.

How expensive?

Probably hundreds of billions or trillions of dollars (that’s assuming that it’s done by a government national lab like Sandia, Los Alamos or Lawrence Livermore), where a hammer could cost up to $15,000, if used in a deep black project that has no congressional oversight.  Hey, these companies have to make as much money as they can before the bottom drops out, right?

Are there any major obstacles preventing the development of Warp Drive propulsion system?

YES and NO

The second biggest problem is that of money, but the primary reason is one of raw power.  This technology would allow us to tap into something called the Zero Point Energy field (ZPE), an endothermic form of energy that probably lies at the root of most paranormal, ufological, as well as electro-gravitic propulsion.

If harnessed, this form of energy dwarfs any other type currently known, including fusion and even anti-matter.  Thus, it could readily replace all forms of power production on earth; coal, oil, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal and nuclear, without the environmentally deleterious effects each of those have, except of course for solar. which is still inefficient.

How anxious do you think the powers that be would be if ZPE was offered to displace and obsolete everything we currently employ to run the planet?  But that’s not the worst part of the problem.

The ZPE field could be easily weaponized to a level far exceeding that of any known nuclear device, especially as there isn’t the hazardous radiation commonly associated with nuclear materials like plutonium and enriched uranium.  This type of power in the wrong hands could be incredibly lethal.  Does anyone with even half a brain think this wouldn’t be a problem?

Has there been any work done along these lines previously?

YES, but allegedly, only to a point.

During the last several years of World War II, the Nazi SS under the guidance of General Hans Kammler, were experimenting with new types of energy and propulsion in order to develop new wonder weapons to defeat the allies that were bombing them out-of-existence.

The Nazis did achieve what appears to be significant breakthroughs by using rotating mercury-like plasmas at high speed and pressure.  The result, was something called “The Bell”, which according to historical records, was able to decouple from gravity as well as induce lift and vector thrusting (pitch, yaw and roll) without the use of any dynamic control surfaces and the movement of air.  What’s being described here is anti-gravity technology and propulsion.

However, given the relatively crude technology available in the early to mid-1940’s, this result was very difficult to achieve as it required the application of very high amplitude power which was, and still somewhat is, very difficult to control (like the prevention of high-voltage arcing).  For more details on this particular aspect such as the relevant books and cable television programs, please refer back to another of my posts entitled “How To Build A Real Time Machine”.   It’s very likely that such WWII Nazi technology was delivered to at least one of our national labs shortly after the war.

In the latter portion of this report you’ll encounter some intriguing evidence that the Lockheed-Martin Advanced Development Corporation (Skunk Works) has either developed or acquired a totally unique form of propulsion system that can be utilized for real-time, interstellar travel that’s entirely consistent with what you’re about to read below.   This material bares a striking resemblance to what some science fiction writers have imagined for decades.   Is this a coincidence?   I think not.

However, there’s some compelling evidence that the military is already using what’s referred to as a magneto-plasma toroidal propulsion system in a highly classified, delta-shaped stealth aircraft known as the TR3-B  from Lockheed Martin.

USAF/Lockheed-Martin’s TR-3B Magneto-Plasma Propulsion System?

These types of technology development programs almost assuredly fall under the heading of Unacknowledged Special Access Programs (USAP), with absolutely no congressional oversight and with virtually unlimited budgets.

This propulsion system reduces the TR-3B’s mass and inertia to a very small fraction of what it would be otherwise, thereby allowing small amounts of thrust to achieve very high rates of acceleration without g-loading the airframe or pilots.   This is the essence of what warp drive is based on…and it’s all too real.

To make a long story very short here, warp drive has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with conventional movement through space by any means currently employed and officially acknowledged.   There are no chemically propelled rockets involved here, where one needs to spend months or years in space dealing with zero-g and deadly cosmic radiation.

The definition of a vehicle so propelled is known as “field propulsion”, wherein everything in and on said vehicle, as well as the vehicle itself, is uniformly moved by the field surrounding it as compared to an asymmetric propulsion method we’re familiar with related to propellers, jets and rockets.

Therefore, there would be absolutely no sensation of acceleration upon movement, that is, no g-loading whatsoever.

You could make a sudden 90-degree, right hand turn at hypersonic speeds with field propulsion and your body would not continue moving in its original direction and be crushed against the inside of the ship.

Who needs g-suits or restraints to prevent from being slammed into the ship’s interior?  Remember in the 2009 Star Trek movie where the trip to Vulcan happened in minutes?

This is far more accurate portrayal of what such light-year travel might be like, not the days or weeks as depicted in the original series (that was little more than a convenient way to draw the story arcs out on board the ship).   This is the only way to fly.  But wait a minute, this type of propulsion is not really flying at all, is it?

But the most important to grasp at this point is that with warp drive, you actually move space itself as opposed to the ship!  Once again, this is as shown in that last Star Trek (2009) movie,  the scene where the aged Spock shows a very young Scotty the formula for successfully transporting matter while the ship is at warp speed?  Do you remember the line that Scotty speaks when he is shown his own future formula regarding this?   Scotty basically says, “Imagine that, it never would have occurred to me to think of space as the thing that was moving”.

How incredibly eloquent, that from a script of a sci-fi film comes the most accurate description yet of what is really going on when your moving a spacecraft at superluminal speeds via warp drive.   While it’s literally impossible to accelerate a particle with mass, let alone a million-ton starship, to light speed due the infinite amounts of energy required to drive an infinite amount of mass (which increased dramatically when accelerating toward c).   Moreover, there are no laws that we yet know of that prohibit us from warping space in such a way as to it propel a starship at superluminal speeds.   There’s always more than one way to skin a cat as the saying goes.  Good, now we’ve got that out of the way.

Let’s start with the starship Enterprise as depicted so beautifully in the series and movies.  There are four primary sections to the ship.

There is the saucer-configured, main hull, where the bridge, crew quarters and labs are.

Then there’s the engineering hull that houses the elements for generating the warp drive plasma and shuttle landing bay.

And finally, there are the two warp drive engines, which contain and magnetically spin the drive plasmas.

USS Enterprise ship schematics

Each of these warp drive engines would electromagnetically contain, suspend, and drive (rotate) a superfluid (superconducting) mercury plasma.

These mercury plasmas would need to contain niobium particulates to prevent them from freezing at their required operating temperature of -450 degrees Fahrenheit/5.3722 Kelvin.

The mercury superfluids would be pressurized to a minimum of 250,000 atmospheres (that’s 3,675,000 pounds per square inch for those who are counting) and electromagnetically spun (driven) at a minimum speed of at least 70,000 rpm.

This will produce very intense torsion fields with concomitant frame dragging effects, that artificially generate a warping of space and time.

Once this zero point torsion field couples with the surrounding space-time, the output in terms of sheer power could easily exceed all the energy currently generated on earth from every known source.

Each engine would need to be in perfect phase (balance, like what didn’t occur when the starship Enterpise tried to use it’s warp drive in the first act of Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979) with the other, as they collectively create a warp field bubble that extends beyond the boundary of the ship generating a torsion field to initiate frame dragging effects, that is, a finely controlled worm or white hole.

As one of the engine’s rotating mass reaches the critical top-dead-center point in that engine, the other engine’s field would interface with it and constructively interfere to reinforce and expand the warp field bubble to effectively surround the entire vessel.

The generated warp field bubble would warp or compress (shorten) space in front of the ship and expand it behind (see accompanying diagram).  Thus, the warp field would move the space surrounding the ship in a manner that would far exceed light speed in terms of the amount of space that is moved past the vehicle.  The faster you spin or pulsed the fields, the higher warp speed you would attain.  But remember, the ship really isn’t really moving, space is.  When it comes to interstellar flight, this is the only way to travel.

Another way of looking at this process is to envision the Enterprise riding a warp field wave within the warp bubble.  Like surfing at the crest of a wave where the ship is being motivated by the difference between the bow and

Warp Bubble

stern of the ship from crest to the trough of the formed wave.  The best explanation for this actually appears in the last Star Trek film in 2009, and is discussed in the time machine blog on my site.

There’s also several other additional, much desired benefits from driving a starship via this method.  You are also able to artificially generate your own 1-g gravity field so you won’t float around the ship with your body rapidly atrophying at every level with all your bodily fluids congealing in your head.  In essence, your ship becomes your own center of gravity.

Additionally, their are other peripheral benefits of this propulsion mechanism, such as an effective deflector screen to prevent any form of high-energy sub-atomic particle (cosmic rays, solar flares, etc.), or micro-meteoroids from hitting or penetrating the ship, which would be catastrophic in nature at any speed, let alone superluminal ones.

Okay, you may now be asking, where does to power come from the create and drive the plasma from, right?  Well, in a rather odd way of thinking, it comes from from us human passengers or occupants aboard the starship.

Aside from the material out of which the Enterprise is built, what is the most abundant material aboard the ship?

How about carbon dioxide, the gas all humans exhale every second they’re alive?

Well, in nuclear powered submarines, the carbon dioxide is scrubbed out of the air by special filters and the oxygen is revitalized and recycled along with fresh oxygen broken down from intake seawater via electrolysis.  This is what allows submarine crews to breath for very lengthy underwater missions without surfacing.  They are only limited by the amount of food they can carry to feed the crew.

Aboard the Enterprise, a similar method is employed to help generate power.  The CO2 is scrubbed out as in submarines, but instead of being scrubbed and discarded, it is recycled and revitalized and turned into antimatter, that is, anti-carbon, the first substance humans turned into antimatter.

So as long as you breath, you’ve essentially got an inexhaustible (excuse the pun again) amount of power to run everything from the engines to environmental control, matter replicators (more on that in another blog) and, of course, weapons (phasers and photon torpedoes).

Simple, straightforward and possibly doable in our lifetime.  And yes, at this early stage of development, there is the necessity for several, very small (large beach ball-sized), multi-gigawatt-class nuclear reactors to initiate all the various power systems, although once the anti-matter power system and the ZPE warp drive plasma starts its cycling, it’s self-sustaining.

So now you have the capability to travel through interstellar space at velocities dramatically exceeding light speed, but in reality, you’re not even moving as we currently understand it.

Another question you might ask is what happens to time for those aboard such a warp driven starship compared to us regular folks down on planet earth?  Is there time dilation with the use of warp drive as Einstein predicted for near, light speed travel or not?  Good question, and only time will provide us with the answer to this question (if you’ll excuse the pun).

Given that we cannot afford to send astronauts back to the moon or even attempt a manned mission to Mars in the foreseeable future due to our nation being bankrupt and bordering on the second great depression, this type and magnitude of endeavor will not likely occur for a very long time, if ever.  Perhaps after the depression and the third world war (just like in Star Trek) it might happen.

In support of that idea, the following information strongly suggests that perhaps the story of something called a reverse- engineered, Alien Reproduction Vehicle (ARV) or “Flux Liner”, first brought to our attention by Mark McCandlish in the 1988, does in fact exist and is based on a mercury plasma based, Zero Point Energy field propulsion technology that can, in fact, generate a warp field or bubble as previously discussed. 

In 1993 Ben Rich, the then current president of Lockheed-Martin Advanced Development Corporation, “Skunkworks” in Palmdale, California presented a lecture at the UCLA’s School of Engineering Alumnus (MS, 1950) . He was recognized as one of the best aircraft engineers in the world and led the development of the F-117 stealth fighter and the SR-91 “Aurora” hypersonic replacement for the SR-71 Blackbird.

During the UCLA Alumni association lecture, Rich stated that Lockheed-Martin then had the technology to travel to the stars—using an entirely new technology not dependent on rockets and chemical propellants.

He stated that, “It would not take years to travel tot he stars, and some UFOs are theirs and the some of them are ours”.

Ben showed slides and went through the history of the Skunk Works, the U2 and SR-71 and drones that no one had seen before.  He also showed a black disc headed for space stating “We now have the technology to take ET home”.

During the Q&A, he stated “It was now possible to travel to the stars.  There was an error in the equations which were corrected.”

Shutttle Hanger Bay

The time of travel is extremely fast, but he didn’t say how fast.

Ben continued in saying that he believed that security was far too oppressive and that the time had come to develop this technology in the commercial world now that the cold war has ended.

Before Rich passed from cancer he made a formal disclosure regarding the fact that UFOs are real and that we have successfully reverse engineered an interstellar propulsion technology equivalent to Star Trek’s warp drive, what referred to above as the ARV and Flux Liner.  He died shortly thereafter.

How coincidental?

These types of technology development programs almost assuredly fall under the heading of Unacknowledged Special Access Program (USAP) with absolutely no congressional oversight and with virtually unlimited budgets.

I strongly suggest that everyone with any interest in what I’m talking about here watch and carefully listen to the 1.45/hr. presentation (on You Tube) Richard M. Dolan gave at an Amsterdam Conference in 2011 where he addressed the details of the U.S. secret space program that’s being run by a faction of our own military which very likely incorporates real-world warp drive technology that NASA is allegedly unaware of.  You will be utterly shocked and amazed

What if the story about NASA’s warp drive that begins this article is nothing more than a planted, disinformational story in order to make the general public believe that this has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with reverse-engineered, crash-retrieved UFOs? 

How likely is it that warp drive field propulsion will see the light of day at any time in the near future?

Don’t count on it.

One last point:  THIS IS NOT SCIENCE FICTION, THIS IS REAL SCIENCE, AND AS GOOD AS IT GETS.

Everything discussed here is written about in far greater detail within my book Aliens Above, Ghosts Below: Explorations of the Unknown.

NOTE:  I want to acknowledge the help I received from my dear friend Scott Weiss, without whose assistance, the Enterprise model you see before you here in the last five photos, would not be in my possession, nor would it be in dry dock under repair and re-fitment from it’s year-long battle with the harsh environmental elements.   Thank you Scott.

I also wish to thank John Eblan of The FX Company, from which this incredibly detailed and illuminated, 34-inch long, 17-inch wide Enterprise model comes, and Quantum Mechanix who are servicing it.
