National Space Society Conference To Host Marshall Barnes Warp Drive Tech Presentation

Right in the wake of the premiere week of Star Trek: Into Darkness, the National Space Society's international Space Development Conference will be the site of the first major presentation of the first and only warp drive technology.

May 6, 2013 - PRLog -- Thursday, May 23, the National Space Society's International Space Development Conference, in La Jolla, California at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, will be the site where the first major presentation of warp drive physics and the current existing technology to make it happen, will take place. Inventor, conceptual theorist and research and development engineer, Marshall Barnes, will cover the history, physics, business and economic potential for warp drive with a special focus on his own STDTS™ technology which will be seen in video recorded experiments. Marshall will demonstrate, how at the current level of performance, the STDTS™ should be able to accelerate a spacecraft faster than anything available now and theoretically, faster than the speed of light. The STDTS™ causes acceleration due to its specially synthesized electromagnetic field which contracts space as it moves through space. The contracting of space, to create forward propulsion, is what defines the action of a warp drive.

Over the last several weeks, NASA's Harold "Sonny" White has received national publicity for the announcement that he is working on a warp drive concept for NASA, however, a revealing article in April's Popular Science magazine detailed more than a few obstacles that must be overcome in order for White's design to even work on a small scale, and even then, it has been determined that it might not be enough for any practical application. The purpose of Marshall's presentation is to show that his technology is already functional and, based on the performance aspects so far, if applied to a spacecraft under its own initial power, Marshall's STDTS™ technology would be able to accelerate it faster than anything available so far, and theoretically reach the speed of light and beyond. The fact that the power can be greatly amplified over the current levels which have been tested so far, strongly suggest this to be true. So far, nothing above 20 watts has been used. 14,000 watts would be easily available for space travel.

Marshall submitted a formal proposal to be included in the advanced space concepts track of the ISDC conference, which included his background, related articles, professional associations and a link to his 2011 paper on warp drive physics, Die Grundlagen Der Verzerrung Reise: Solutions To Inherent Issues of Motion Through Local Adjustments with Contracting and Expanding Space-Time Acceleration The proposal was received, reviewed and approved by the scientific evaluation committee and Conference Chair, Dave Dressler authorized the addition of Marshall to the list of speakers late last week.

The National Space Society is a 501c3 non-profit corporation whose goal is to have "people living and working in thriving communities beyond the Earth, and the use of the vast resources of space for the dramatic betterment of humanity". NSS is widely acknowledged as the preeminent citizen's voice on space. NSS has over 50 chapters in the United States and around the world. The society also publishes Ad Astra magazine, an award-winning periodical chronicling the most important developments in space. The NSS puts on its International Space Development Conference annually, featuring leading members of the space science, technology and aerospace business communities.

Marshall's presentation will hit the high points of what warp drive is, the 1994 introduction of it as a scientific concept by Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre, the obstacles and related issues since then, the alternative via Einstein's distant teleparallelism vs general relativity, the development of his STDTS™ technology, video of experiments, how he created it and the relationship to the NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts mission statement, and the commercial and economic implications for the future with the development of the STDTS™ technology and testing in space.

Marshall currently has a documentary in production that will expose the world to the story and the promise of the STDTS™ system and some of the people involved in its development. The documentary will be seen as a pay-per-view event online via FORA.TV, projected for early July.

By coincidence, the ISDC will begin a week after the premiere of the latest Star Trek movie. This is expected to add heightened interest from the millions of Star Trek fans from around the world.
