Faster Than Light: Warp Drive and Quantum Vacuum Power by H.David Froning Jr.
An amazing book on faster than light flight! H. David Froning, a 30-year veteran engineer who worked on several designs for future space travel propulsion, gives us this exceptional compilation of his discoveries, struggles and experiences in the realm of faster than light space travel. Central to the concept of faster than light travel is that the vacuum of space itself (the spacetime metric) can be utilized in propulsion systems. “Engineering the vacuum,” as this is called, involves discovering how space can be altered to provide energy/thrust for future spacecraft. Packed with diagrams, some of which show how, as a starship accelerates away from Earth, it disappears and reappears in only seconds. But during these seconds of disappearance, the ship, in effect, leaps high above space-time and over stupendous distances to reach speeds that are billions of times greater than light-speed. Lots of great material on quantum vacuum power, anti-gravity propulsion effects, the velocity of light in spacetime altered regions, effective mass in spacetime-altered regions, warp drives, and tons more! Includes 12 pages of colored images. FASTER THAN LIGHT: Warp Drive and Quantum Vacuum Power By H. David Froning Jr., Edited by Tom Valone, PhD. 500 Pages. 6x9 Paperback. Illustrated.
