You are probably aware of this recent news report based on Burkhard
Heims theories. On Coast to Coast AM a few nights ago, the guy who runs
the time travel archive page for Teter(sp?) was commenting on
predictions the guy made that time travel would be done when scientists
learned to make miniature blackholes using the Z machine at Sandia Labs
as mentioned below. And that recent news reports talk about this very
theory. Anyway, sure seems to take a lot of power to warp time and space!
01/24/06 - Hyperdrive Motor for superfast space travel
(Thanks to Bert Pool for the headsup! - JWD)
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 unrecognised kind of
physics. Can they possibly be serious?
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.
In Heim's view of space and time, 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.
In its present design, Drvscher and Hduser'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".
