PRLog - Feb. 20, 2013 - Marshall Barnes has announced his intention to beat NASA in the race to develop warp drive and by all accounts he is already in the lead. At a public hearing on Valentine's Day, Marshall outlined the history of the STDTS™ technology that he first invented back in 2000 and has since developed into being not just the first functioning prototype technology for warp drive but the engine behind the first prototype time machine, the Verdrehung Fan™ which is successfully challenging the status of Dr. Ronald Mallett, of the University of Connecticut as the creator of the first time machine. Mallett has a design but there is no device yet and many physicists, doubt that it will ever become a time machine.

Standing behind a podium, nearly a week after he gave a rousing speech at the Ohio State Technology Commercialization and Knowledge Transfer Center, Marshall gave a presentation and answered questions, from those who attended the hearing, concerning the technology, history behind the research and how he intends to beat NASA into being the first to test a warp drive platform in space. In his usual bold style, Marshall easily answered questions pertaining to costs, consultants and connections to the aerospace industry and his emphasis on developing space probes that will explore the galaxy as opposed to concentrating initially on manned space flight, citing costs involved and ultimately the human factor.
Marshall intends to have a pay-per-view event with Fora.TV that will show experiments, interviews and never before seen footage from the now defunct ArtLab Studios, AET RaDAL facility and the roads that were used to test the STDTS™ technology between 2000 and 2004. The presentation will also include gravity drop footage with the results showing that the objects under the influence of the STDTS™ field fell faster than when the field was turned off. It was the results of gravity drop tests that caused the first sensation on the worldwide web in 2006 because the results far exceeded the gravity modification results of a related test by the European Space Agency http://www.topix.com/
Marshall's announcement, of a race with NASA, follows last September's announcement by NASA scientist, "Sonny" White, that he had found solutions for warp drive physics that would not require as much energy as originally thought and that modulating the warp field could be helpful as well. These issues are both similar to those mentioned in Marshall's 2011 warp drive physics paper, Die Grundlagen der Verzerrung Reise http://network.nature.com/
