Re: EM Drive

I would never pretend to speak for Paul, but I can relate to you what his positions have been in the past. Last I heard, he was still maintaining he believed that Sonny's QVF model and Jim's M-E model were opposite sides of the same coin, despite Jim, Sonny and myself keep arguing this cannot be tr...

Re: EM Drive

[quote="AcesHigh"]interesting post at NASA SpaceFlight Forums... Would love Paul March to answer this... and does anyone know IF this issue raised by this post, if valid, can also happen with Woodward Effect? [quote="Rodal"] I have concluded that thermal transient effects are a l...

Re: Mach Effect progress

I suppose he can answer the physics related issues of the argument here at Talk Polywell while at the same time avoiding answering sensitive issues that he cannot discuss due to the work at Eagleworks? AcesHigh: I wish I could say more on this forum, but as GI-Thruster (Ron) points out, I'm now cov...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Folks: Jim's May 10, 2013 weekly e-mail distribution post should shed some light on the Carver Mead "graviton" rocket thrust limit conjecture in regards to the M-E. "To recap Carver's argument, he noted that both gravity and electromagnetism, as long range fields, have zero rest mass ...

Yes that's all correct, but the question was concerning who is a proper authority figure as regards GRT and that's not someone who has never been trained in it, like Paul. He would be the first to agree questions on GRT should go to Jim. Paul is a proper source of authority for many sorts of M-E ca...

The first link doesn't work for me and because I recently had a similar problem I tried it 3 times. The second link is a WOW! link. Is this a solicitation for aneutronic fusion approaches to be funded at JSC? Paul March is the guy to clue us in here. Looks very exciting though. I'd guess the Poly h...

I thought White's warp drive system was to use electric fields generated by ceramic capacitors. Where does the laser fit in? Or is the laser just for detecting the warp field? Ceramic capacitors were used in an earlier implementation that reduced the RF operating frequency requirement for the initi...

Disregarding antimatter, what would the notional boost be with power cores of 5MW, 300MW, and 5GW, assuming RF tech has advanced sufficiently? I.e. a range of plausible fission and/or fusion sources. You really don't appreciate how hard this problem really is. Assuming we use a 100,000 kg vehicle w...

Per Eric Davis the QM driven limit to White's warp-drive boost factor is on the order of ~1x10^32 times the speed of light. Of course supplying the input energy for such a warp drive would be a Herculean task even if we can actually reduce the stiffness of spacetime from its nominal GRT based C^4/8...

Paul, Is Harold White planning to publishing a paper with his most recent calculations on exotic matter requirements for warp drive? GeeGee: Sonny is planning on publishing an update to this conjecture, but I have no clue as to when it will be published. Dr. White's work plate is rather full at the...

Please explain what is " the stiffness of spacetime" (with nominal GRT based C^4/8*Pi*G value) My understanding is that per Einstein's General Relativity Theory (GRT) space and time when considered as a single entity (spacetime) can be distorted or bent from its normally flat or undistort...

State which line the error of premise occurs: 1) A 1 kg test thruster is subjected to a 130 uN of thrust generated by a 'Mach thruster' driven by a nuclear thermal battery that has an output electronically governed to 1 W. 2) It accelerates for 10 years (call it 300 Ms) from a given rest frame at w...

Lots of enthusiasm on Harold White's Eagleworks at reddit. If you scroll down, you'll find a comment by someone who was an intern at his lab. http://www.reddit.com/r/science/comments/14izg1/official_nasa_tech_report_capabilities_of_the/ GeeGee: I'd wait for some reported data before getting too exc...
