PRLog - April 11, 2014 - Dr. Rita Louise had a wild show last night when she hosted a visit by research and development engineer Marshall Barnes, the inventor of the world's first and only time machine as well as the first and only warp drive technology. After releasing hints that there would be a big announcement prior to the program, he did deliver in an understated way, but the meesage was big enough. Marshall has begun the move to designing a number of spacecraft for testing his technology in space, looking at launch methods and plans on conducting operations in space within two years. In addition, he announced that when the Verdrehung Fan™ is scaled up to the point that it is producing traversable wormholes to targeted destinations, he will not only look to time travel tourism but industrial purposes such as mining locations on Earth in the past that are not accessible now.

"The mining option works because of several things," Marshall explained afterward. "First, it's not the same Earth that we're on now but one in a parallel universe, so there is no causal link between the two. The minerals in the ground there are not the same ones in the ground here. Second, it would be possible to mine without dangerous dinosaurs around or any human populations in the area. It also would be cheaper than mining asteroids".
Marshall is talking about using pico satellite type probes - ones that would weigh one pound or less, to test STDTS™ in space. This will greatly reduce costs and he already has the physical experiments to prove that it should. His first gravity drop tests, in 2006 (see http://www.prweb.com/
"There are people who think that all this warp drive talk is a joke," Marshall said, "but as the technical details begin to unfold for the next phases to come, it will become obvious that this is no joke. It is very possible that we will hit a target of 2016 for an actual test in space. But remember - if the STDTS™ technology wasn't applicable for warp drive, the Verdrehung Fan™ wouldn't work, but it does..."
