Unveiling July 4


Looking for something to do before that next conference? July 7 is the 100th birthday of Robert Heinlein and the Heinlein Centennial celebration in Kansas City, USA. Heinlein fans coming out to speak include NASA's Michael Griffin, Peter Diamandis, and Spaceship One pilot Brian Binnie. Heinlein wrote many classic titles, including "Have Spacesuit Will Travel."

Things have been busy but very exciting. As was originally planned, the technology will be unveiled here July 4. It was shown to a select technical crowd over the weekend and they unversally loved it. The most common adjective was "beautiful." Next it will be shown to much harder audiences. One look will tell you that this is a huge advance over anything in existence.

If anyone wishes to know how it works, just think about cosmology. Expansion is indistinguishable from the forward flow of time, R = ct. The Universe can't expand at an infinite rate, or even at the same rate c forever. A counter-pressure from gravity prevents it from expanding uncontrollably, GM = tc^3.

Unlike "dark energy" this science has applications that can protect human lives and save NASA lots of money. (Even if DE exists, it would be spread so thinly through Space that it has no conceivable use.) This science has already solved the "Faint Young Sun" paradox of Earth's climate. It has saved NASA hundreds of millions by making DE probes unnecessary, therefore earning the jealousy of a few scientists. The new system will make human spaceflight safer and far more comfortable.

The anticipation is killing me! :-)

I'll definitely look forward to your post tomorrow (via Mobile as I may be away from my computer).

PS

Will you have images, or a link where we can check out your beautiful creation? I'd request a video (via YouTube) but that may be asking for too much. ;-)

I don't agree with Einstein there in his characterization of gravity. To solve the gravitational field equations I need to specify initial conditions. In GR the initial conditions for the geometry are not entirely fixed by the matter content in the universe and so neither is gravity, inertia etc.

Hi Rio. I love the 4th of July. It means freedom for me! Can't wait to commemorate it.
