Re: Mach Effect progress

Since I only used spouting and you used suckering It is easy to get sucked into something promising, but even harder to admit when one is wrong if it doesn't pan out. Persistently wording things with pejoratives is not a habit of impartiality. Seems like this "argument" got started becaus...

Re: Fission news(I know blasphemy )

Replacing the primary loop every 4 years sounds very expensive- working underground, ripping out radioactive tubes that carried the decay product contaminated pipes that formed the primary cooling loop, would be time consuming and expensive and require up to many thousand of years of safe storage. ...

I have to disagree with you here. Shit does, in fact, contain neutrons ;)

Re: EEStor says something - but not too much

GIThruster, Keep on posting LIES, you are an outright liar. LM NEVER posted anything online AFRL was going to test their caps. When LM signed the agreement with EESCAM it wasn't caps con Dick Weir was peddling. It was a disruptive EESU that was going to power electric vehicles over 200 miles on one...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Remarks on Wheeler-Feynman absorber theory http://arxiv.org/abs/1501.03516 The derivation of absorber theory is outlined in very detail. Absorber theory is based on classical action-at-a-distance electrodynamics, but it deviates from that theory at a crucial point. It is shown that (a) absorber the...

Re: Mach Effect progress

So I had a very enlightening discussion with Dr. Kastner over e-mail, in which she led me to consider the causal set formulation as the framework upon which a quantum gravity theory compatible with TI can be formed, and linked me to her recent paper on transactions and causal sets: http://arxiv.org/...

Re: Mach Effect progress

I guess I need to consider whether or not my idea is compatible with Heidi Fearn's recent paper on HN theory: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1412.5426v1.pdf

It only considers the relativistic field equations. It doesn't get into quantum mechanics.

Re: Mach Effect progress

Looks like I'll have to wait until the book is actually available on Amazon before I can post a review. I'll put a note in my calendar to do that so I won't forget.

I sent it to her UMD e-mail address. If there's a better one to send it to, feel free to ask her about forwarding that address to me.

Re: Mach Effect progress

I just might do that! This morning, I had something of an epiphany regarding TI and gravity. Not sure if this is really a revolutionary idea, but I don't recall reading it anywhere specifically, though it's definitely influenced by Woodward's interpretation of Mach's principle. The idea is that what...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Just finished the book (http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/p993) and I have to say it's fascinating, and quite approachable for an educated non-mathematician, more so than Woodward's book, which is admittedly targeted at engineers. Much in the way that Woodward follows Mach's princ...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Here's a link; the book will not be available in the US for another couple months: http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/p993 You can actually buy access to the e-book from them already, and there's a 50% discount code (WSEBOOK50) that's good until 3/31. It gives you access to each i...

Re: Propellantless propulsion from plain-old Special Relativ

Indeed, Wheeler-Feynman Absorber theory (which is not mentioned at all in the paper) immediately sprang to my mind while reading it. That said, I wouldn't dismiss the paper completely out of hand, as this may point to an electromagnetic parallel to Mach effects hiding within SRT.

Well, almost all of them. A complete loss of power would still make your M-E car fall from the sky. A good design would have emergency thrusters backed by enough batteries to get you down safely in a power loss scenario.

Re: Propellantless propulsion from plain-old Special Relativ

Not sure where this paper is trying to go. It's already generally observed that radiation reaction forces (and their gravitational analogue of inertia reaction forces) occur instantaneously.
