Oct. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- launches today as the official web site for the race to build a time machine between Dr. Ronald Mallett and Marshall Barnes. It will not only cover the competition between the two men, but promises to have a book store and library dedicated solely to time travel related information.

The web site is full of original photos of both men and video clips from a variety of sources. It even features a page where odds makers have placed the stakes on who they feel will do what , and you can vote your choice for winner - Ronald Mallett, Marshall Barnes, Someone Else or even Nobody.

The web site promises to have more information as it becomes available and even goes into a fairly good explanation on each man and his approach to time travel. For those that may have doubted that Marshall has any connection to Mallett at all, they're proven to be the fools, as there are two photos with them together, one where Marshall is shooting an interview of Mallett, and another where they are on a panel together, from the 2007 MarCon sci-fi convention. The entire framework of the backstory between the two is given, as well as a copy of the email that Marshall sent to Mallett offering him an opportunity to join his time machine project - which Mallett allegedly turned down, thus setting the stage for the competition that has since ensued.

This web site is documenting a potentially history making event, even more so because both are men of color and engaged in the most radical of endeavors - the attempt to make time travel a reality.

Mallett is scheduled to appear at the Philip K. Dick Film Festival in New York city the first week of December, while Marshall will be appearing at the Universal Light Expo in Columbus, Ohio on October 14th and will be interviewed live on Richard Syreet's international radio program, The Conspiracy Show, at 11`PM EST that same night. The Conspiracy Show can be heard online at by clicking on the "Listen Live" button. The call-in line is toll free outside of Canada, 1-866-740-4740. On the program Marshall will be discussing the time travel secrets of the movie Looper, his Verdrehung Fan(TM) and prove why Ed Farhi, of MIT, is wrong about his public statements concerning time travel.

Marshall will be embarking on a nationwide tour to show off the Verdrehung Fan(TM), the name of his time machine prototype, as it gets developed and approaches becoming an actual time machine. Meanwhile, Mallett is still trying to raise the $250,000 that he needs to get started. In an effort to show no favoritism in the race, has a link and a button on its site that will connect people to Mallett's page where donation information exits to contribute to his Space-Time Twisting by Light project. The thinking is that if UConn alumni, and Mallett's fan base, now know that the school's bragging rights to time travel are at stake, that they might contribute to Mallett's cause so that even if Marshall wins, it won't be such a lopsided victory. Right now, it's not even close. Although since 2000, Mallett was the only figure in the world claiming to have a time machine based on accepted scientific theory - a claim that won him a TV special, numerous interviews, and a book deal, the fact has always been that he need hundreds of thousands of dollars to even begin his project on a real scale. What has been shown on TV has only been a scale model, by his own admission.

Meanwhile, Marshall has been spearheading the research and development of his STDTS technology as a prototype for warp drive since 2002. The application of the technology, which causes a gravitic acceleration by acting on space itself, to a rotating configuration, such as a fan - which should cause the same effect - if not more than what Mallett is attempting, won support from a number of scientists, including a group attending the Mars Society conference this year in Pasadena. It was due to that support that Marshall set everything else aside when he returned home and began work on what was to become the Verdrehung Fan(TM) .

The rest, to paraphrase a saying, is becoming history.
