New D&H paper on Gravitational Field Propulsion... a must read
Walter Dröscher and Jochem Hauser have published a new paper for the 45th AIAA/ASME/SAE/ASE Joint Propulsion Conference & Exhibit and Dr. Hauser presented it last month in Denver, Colorado.
The title is "Gravitational Field Propulsion" and it is accessible at:

It is to date the most comprehensive and complete overview of Extended Heim Theory and includes several sections that are either completely new or expand upon areas only mentioned before in passing. It also ties current EHT to their prior award-winning AIAA paper on subliminal space travel. This is a must read.
The paper clearly recounts the experiments of Tajmar, et al. and does an in-depth analysis vis-a-vis EHT, Dr. Tajmar having given D&H access to his data. The paper also presents a very clear picture of the novel physics required by EHT and demonstrated in Tajmar's experiments for ESA and ARC.
Items of particular note include:
1) Non-Ordinary Matter (NOM): Virtual particles with imaginary mass (but real charge) that lead to novel groups including graivtophotons and quintessence particles. In EHT, dark matter is composed of a new class of particles, the NOM neutral leptons (fermions, though not neutrinos), but these are not WIMPS (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles) and have roughly the same inertial mass as electrons.
2) During spontaneous symmetry breaking similar to that of superconductors or ferromagnets, symmetry is regained by generation of NOMs which are subsequently converted into gravitophotons. This unique symmetry breaking for gravitational fields is termed "gravitomagnetic symmetry breaking" (GSB), which is associated with the formation of virtual electrons and protons.
3) A clear step-wise description of the Production mechanism for Imaginary Matter (PIM).
4) Describes in detail the experimental basis for gravitational fields in setups by Tajmar et al. and Graham as well as G-PB. Also, a parsing of the three different types of Gravitational Experiments discerned: GE1: gravitomagnetic twisting of spacetime; GE2: gravity-like acceleration; GE3: the long-proposed vertical gravity-like acceleration field for GME2.
5) A clear comparison of the two coupling mechanisms: fermion and boson.
6) A description of the physical processes in setups covering rotation of the Nb-ring, rotation of the Nb-ring plus Al sample holder (and liquid He), Al sample holder alone, and the conversion from an electromagnetic to gravitomagnetic field.
7) Finally, a specification list for GME2:
- a mass placed above the rotating disk of 3.15 x 10^3 kg
- rotation speed of 200 m/s
- coil of 1 m diameter with 2,500 turns and current of 8 A
- cross sectional area of coil at about 2.5 x 10^-2 m^2
- a total spacecraft mass is assumed to be 150 x 10^3 kg (165 short tons)
- generation of a force of 1.98 x 10^6N (about 2.02 x 10^5 kg or 222 short tons)
These figures came with a reference to a forthcoming review article to recompute these numbers.
I can't help but think that this grand restatement of EHT, Tajmar's experiments, G-PB, and references to the first AIAA article on space travel through parallel space is a prelude to a groundbreaking paper reporting on the experimental results of GME2.
