UConn's Mallett Challenged By Marshall Barnes In Race For 1st Time Machine

R&D engineer Marshall Barnes announces his first initial success in creating a device that could become the world's first functioning time machine, thus challenging University of Connecticut's Ronald Mallett for the title.

PRLog - Aug. 20, 2012 - YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio -- Marshall Barnes, R&D, a member of the Philosophy of Time Society, announces the successful completion of a series of basic experiments that provide the foundation for building a practical time machine, based upon a little understood theory of Albert Einstein. This accomplishment places him in direct competition with Ronald Mallett, PhD of the University of Connecticut who became world famous during the last decade for patenting a design for a time machine and getting a best selling book deal as the result. The fact is, however, that Mallett's design has come under criticism and he has yet to build a working prototype. Part of Mallett's problem is that his work is based on Einstein's General Theory of Relativity which requires certain energy conditions which some physicist's believe that Mallett's design fails to meet. Marshall's is based on Einstein's unfinished unified field theory of electromagnetism and gravity, thus lacking the same types of energy constraints and it uses the already proven STDTS technology to accomplish its effect by applying it in continuous, fixed rotation. Mallett also requires funding in excess of $200,000 to even begin his experiments, an amount far greater than anything that Marshall has needed.


The Mallett design for using a rotating ring laser beam to accomplish frame dragging, a rotational gravitation effect, hopes to do so with enough to twist space and time to form what is called, "closed time-like curves",  which the professor oft times describes as "stirring a simple cup of coffee". The spoon stirring the coffee is in the role of the rotating ring laser and the coffee is space and time. Mallett's plan is to introduce a neutron particle into the rotating space and try to detect it rotating as well, as a bean placed in the cup of coffee would rotate with the coffee, in order to prove that the effect is working. It has been over 10 years since Mallett's had this idea. The criticism has come in the form of Ken Olum and Allen Everett who claimed to have problems with the type of  spacetime Mallett used in his analysis due to the existence of a singularity which is not the space-time normally expected if the experiment were in a  previously empty space. Another objection is that the energy requirements to twist space-time sufficiently would be huge, and need a laser rotating inside a ring larger in circumference than the observable universe. Well known physicist J. R. Gott, whom Marshall recently had discussions with at the Mars Society conference in Pasadena, has stated that slowing light down in a medium, one method that Mallett has suggested that would help him get around some of Olum and Everett's objections, is not the same as lowering the constant for the speed of light in a vacuum, which is the effect that Mallett intended to achieve with his solution.

Marshall's approach is completely different. First, it's not based entirely on General Relativity, only for a description of the effects, not their cause. The cause is due to the STDTS technology he invented that produces an acceleration in the direction of motion by acting  on space itself due to the gravitic effects of its electromagnetic field. This field is specially synthesized to produce this effect, not too different from the proposed specially conditioned electromagnetic fields sought by aerospace researchers Gregory Meholic and H. David Froning http://www.gettingtherefromhere.info/Community/Blog/tabid... . It is also similar in function to the GEM unification theory of plasma physicist, John Brandenberg. Brandenberg has talked with Marshall about STDTS and has said that there is nothing that it describes that wouldn't be allowed by physics the way he understands it in light of his GEM unification  theory. Former defense science analyst, Paul Murad has said that Brandenburg's GEM theory "is one of the most promising new theories being developed on the subject. It has important implications to military defense and space travel", according to a report from the Alternative Energy Headquarters web site http://www.alternativeenergyhq.com/unify-gravity-and-elec... . This military and space connection would seem to apply to Marshall's work as well since he was the only person to do a private sector analysis of the 2004 Air Force Teleportation Physics Study, which focused on traversable wormholes as the best method for teleportation. Both CTCs and wormholes are connected to General Relativity but could be producible through electromagnetically induced torsion of space-time allowed for in the unfinished UFT. In addition, the STDTS technology was designed to accomplish accelerated travel by acting on the fabric of space, and in outer space could be pulsed to function as a warp drive.  In the rotating configuration, where space would not have time to recover before each blade were to pass through the same area again, twisting of space-time would begin to occur, otherwise known as "torsion".

Marshall will begin to release the results of his initial experiments next week. For now he is saying that there were demonstrated and video documented incidents of light seeming to bend and disappear under the influence of the rotating STDTS field, which was spinning at a speed in excess of 50 miles per hour while enveloping the blades of a high velocity fan. An expected increase in velocity was documented, caused by the activation of the STDTS field to the fan, and video signals, transmitted through the spinning fan, appeared "shredded" upon reception. These are all effects related to "torsion" or the twisting effects on space-time under extreme conditions and clearly connected to the area that Mallett is hoping to make progress. Of special significance is that Marshall is accomplishing this with low power requirements, leaving the possibility of extreme results, once different configurations and high power outputs are applied. It is estimated that the power output of the field, in the current experiments, was in the order of 50 watts. The amount of power available for large scale experiments, however, easily exceeds 28,000 watts, making the effect, that the STDTS signal could have in a torsion configuration, well within the range of what would normally be considered "science fiction". That would include the creation of closed time-like curves on a scale far exceeding anything that Mallett has proposed. Marshall calls this current version, so far, the Verdrehung Fan. "Verdrehung" is German for "twisting".

There are plans for commercial exploitation of the results of these first and future experiments, in the form of a TV special, audio documentary and book.
