Re: Mach Effect progress

Guy on reddit claimed Woodward's notions "violate just about every fundamental principle we know of - conservation of energy, momentum, etc." http://www.reddit.com/r/space/comments/1l6n13/warp_drive_could_become_reality_with/cbwjqbv I responded to him. Hopefully he has an interesting reply besides "...

Re: Mach Effect progress

New Pop Sci article on Harold White's warp drive http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2013-03/warp-factor His evasiveness to questions on page 3 is very sketchy behavior. This compounded with the fact that he has no published papers in peer-reviewed physics journals (on the modifications made to...

Re: Mach Effect progress

There's been a lot of changes to the Woodward effect wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodward_effect The only thing bugging me is the section on the Nordtvedt effect. They seem to have confused Woodward's use of the term "Nordtvedt effect" with a paper describing a test for the strong equival...

Hey guys, FYI, the wiki page on the Woodward effect has been updated...though I'm not sure if it's for worse or better.

NBF picked it up http://nextbigfuture.com/2013/02/experimental-null-test-of-mach-effect.html I wish people who say stuff like this: "You're violating the first law of thermodynamics, the second law of thermodynamics or the principle of relativity in a big way, take your pick. Or your device doesn't ...

Let's not get carried away now. Being snarky isn't psychotic. It's just annoying behavior.

williatw is posing a hypothetical, and you could replace Sonny's warp drive with Woodward's wormhole generator. The bottom line he's posing is that if you allow for any type of practical FTL propulsion/transportation system, then it makes space travel trivial, and removes many of the limits we've im...

We have 6,000 years of recorded history and of those 6,000 years, we have 6,000 years of reports of "gods" and other various sorts of amazing beings coming from the skies. We have literally millions of such reports. We have hundreds of thousands of pictures and videos. We have hundreds of radar tra...

rashudo, I wonder the same thing. If warp drives and wormholes are feasible, then to me, that suggests we must either be alone...or on the verge of destroying ourselves. I'd like to think ETs have us in a zoo of some kind, but frankly, I have a really hard time believing we would not have detected a...

I hope it gets some attention after it's published. There hasn't been any significant modifications to the Alcubierre metric since the 90s, to my knowledge. On a different note, I found a new article on the Mach Effect on the sci-fi blog io9 http://io9.com/5972727/the-woodward-effect-allows-for-endl...

Paul,

Is Harold White planning to publishing a paper with his most recent calculations on exotic matter requirements for warp drive?

We may have a prime target for an interstellar mission, assuming all the kinks of M-E propulsion are worked out
