Is warp drive possible – from Omaha? 2


I got this story from a good friend and colleague of mine in the aerospace world named Bill (who is deaf BTW, and that’s worth another post later).

You might want to remember the name David Pares.  You definitely want to watch this video and read this article from Omaha.com:

http://www.omaha.com/living/working-toward-a-warp-drive-in-his-garage-lab-omahan/article_b6489acf-5622-5419-ac18-0c44474da9c9.html?mode=jqm

David Pares is a professor at the University of Omaha.  He claims to have evidence already of bending space and shortening laser beams with his device in his garage.  The physics is inspired by accounts of pilots who have somehow instantaneously traveled hundreds of miles due to strong storms in the atmosphere (and it’s inspired by Star Trek, of course).

This is yet another reason why we still need more rocket scientists!  Is it really fair to believe that we’ve discovered and harnessed all of the energy and propulsion sources that are possible in this awesome, immense universe?  No, of course not.

It’s impossible to predict when or where (or if) we’ll ever discover warp drive and make it possible.  But it just might come from Omaha.  Or maybe someone reading this blog will have something to do with it…

Also worth asking: can you be deaf and work in aerospace?  Yes indeed!  It ain’t easy.  But then neither is rocket science.

Take care and take charge.

Here is David Pares’ company website for Space Warp Dynamics LLC (perfect name, right?!) http://swdllc.paresspacewarpresearch.org/

    I’ve kind of fallen off the page in reviewing FTL technology, but at one time I was very involved in surveying the field. There was even a mailing list some years back with a good size group of FTL researchers that were publishing support studies to flesh out and improve upon Alcubierre’s original theory.

    I really think it would really surprise people to know how much real work is being done in this area.

      Thanks Craig! FTL is Faster Than Light for those who don’t know. There is an advanced propulsion technical committee in AIAA. Perhaps that is where some of the same people and discussions are continuing.
      Definitely much more work to be done in this space! For people who love theoretical physics and propulsion it’s a great fit.
