On the Reality of Gravity-Like Fields

This evening Dr. Hauser gave his talk at the AIAA (The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) 48th Joint Propulsion Conference & Exhibit in Atlanta. The AIAA is the world's largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession.

Dr. Hauser's topic for presentation was his new paper, "On the Reality of Gravity-Like Fields", which continues his work and that of Dr. Droescher on Extended Heim Theory. This particular presentation made a bold effort to explain how EHT can be a theoretical model for MOND (Modified Newtonian Dynamics) by employing EHT's prediction of 2 additional fundamental interactions related to gravitation.

He begins by reviewing a set of eleven experiments and/or astrophysical observations. He believes they clearly provide substantial evidence for novel physical concepts to exist that are outside relativity and which require novel types of fields beyond the standard model. He also provides a critique of Dr. Tajmar's most recent experimental studies that produced null results, saying that the difficulty seems to be with the noise level of the gyroscope and lack of maintaining a sufficiently low ambient temperature field rather than the non-existence of gravitomagnetic fields.

This non-mathematical paper describes how gravitophotons and quintessence particles and their antiparticles can account for the presence of dark matter in the galactic halo and the measurement known as "MOND acceleration." By solving for the gravitational accelerations for visible and dark matter inside a galaxy (which are shown to be different), Dr. Hauser obtains the formula for the well known MOND relation and from it derives the correct equation for the orbital speed of stars at a distance large enough from the center of the galaxy.

MOND predictions of galaxy rotation have been the most accurate, producing results notably more accurate than models of dark matter. Lee Smolin and co-workers have tried unsuccessfully to obtain a theoretical basis for MOND from quantum gravity. Smolin's conclusion is "MOND is a tantalizing mystery, but not one that can be resolved now." That may change with this presentation by Dr. Hauser.

This breakthrough provides a theoretical basis for the well known observations of dark matter and dark energy that defy standard interpretations of GR and SR, and explains them through interactions of new particles predicted by EHT and the poly-metric tensor approach originally conceived in the 1950s by Burkhard Heim. A more quantitative paper would solidify the propositions in this new direction and we hope that such a paper is already in the works.

This new direction for EHT can not be emphasized enough. EHT now describes a common underlying basis for both the smallest scale interactions of subatomic particles and predictions for the largest scale interactions of dark energy and dark matter on a universe-wide scale.

Dr. Hauser concludes with the prediction of gravity-like fields that might be generated in the laboratory and may serve as the physical basis for establishing a completely novel technology field, termed gravitational engineering. And by inference, "gravity design", the design discipline described in my book.

Lectures series on Gravity-like Fields available

From the HPCC-Space GmbH (High Performance Computing and Communication for Space) site:

A comprehensive lecture series on the Introduction to the Physics of Gravity-like Fields (120 color slides) in pdf format may be purchased from the www.hpcc-space.de site here.

Please e-mail your reply to jh@hpcc-space.de .

This course provides a step by step introduction with detailed explanation for a thorough orientation in the field of both theoretical and experimental breakthrough propulsion physics and energy generation, derived from the novel concept of gravitational engineering. The physics issues are presented with little mathematics, but are illustrated by numerous diagrams in order to give the reader a chance to progress in this field from the popular to the expert level.

New chapter by Hauser and Droescher

Gravity-Superconductors Interactions: Theory and Experiment
(Eds. Giovanni Modanese, Univ. of Bozen, Italy and G. A. Robertson, Institute for Advanced Research in the Space, U.S.A.) was published by Bentham Science Publishers (www.benthamscience.com).

In Chap. 11, pp. 269-319, entitled: Emerging Physics for Gravity-like Fields, W. Droescher and J. H. Hauser present both experimental and theoretical evidence for gravitational engineering that is, the generation of laboratory generated gravitational fields. Extreme gravitomagnetic fields might be generated through a phase transition at cryogenic temperatures, triggering the conversion of electromagnetic into gravitomagnetic potentials. The physical model for this process is presented and the technology ensuing from this novel physical interaction with regard to propellantless propulsion, direct energy generation, and transportation in general is discussed.

In the foreword, written by J. H. Hauser, the publisher has decided, without further consultation, to change the name of Wernher von Braun into Werner von Braun, obviously being unaware that Wernher is the correct first name of Prof. von Braun. The foreword by J. H. Hauser and the introduction to Chapter 11 can be downloaded here.

Note: Be aware that for the above listed book, purchasing chapters or the full book online may encounter credit card fraud alerts... it did for me in the U.S., possibly because the publisher, Bentham Books, is located in the United Arab Emirates.

How commercial is LENR?

Since I've broached the topic of LENR, the question now is "How commercially viable is LENR?" In part, that has been address in Tyler van Houweligne's slideshow, "Is Commercial Low Energy Nuclear Reachtion (LENR) the Real Deal?" available here: http://www.slideshare.net/tylervan/lenr

It is a well considered compilation of research and opinions, and though the tone may be influenced toward the affirmative by the author, the sources cited appear both legitimate and accurate according to several sources. However, this is not the final word and widely published research confirmations are still required.

Second option for powering gMOD

This also posted in e-Cat World on the 17th:

"This short comment by Brian Ahern, CTO of Vibronic Energy, was posted on Peter Gluck's Ergo Out web site today.

I am announcing the nanonickel breakthrough at the New Energy Symposium in NYC on Wednesday. I am saying the energy is real, repeatable and of useful output. I will also state that it is not of nuclear origin. I will say that it is a manifestation of asymmetric magnetism. This explains the lack of radiation accompanying my 21 watts of thermal excess power. Defkalion is getting even better results and others around the world are as well.

The energy landscape is going to change in a viral manner.

The New Energy Symposium is being held at 7 World Trade Center from July 17-19th, and Vibronic Energy Technologies is listed as one of the presenters there. Ahern has been working in the nickel-hydrogen reaction field for some time now, but neither he, or any other researcher in that field as far as I know has mentioned that the Ni-H reaction is a product of 'asymmetric magnetism'. That sounds like something that would come from Steorn, rather than people working on LENR. Very curious."
____________________

Steorn has a rather mixed reputation after a very high profile claim of an excess production of energy through subtle manipulation of asymmetric magnetism, and then switching to a very low profile as they develop their HephaHeat spinoff product.

In my book I had suggested that gravityships and other uses of gMOD might be continually powered either through LENR or through application of Steorn's research in asymmetric magnetism to providing high energy outputs after an initial input of energy... very similar to LENR.

Many thousands of hours under four years of NDAs were spent by myself and dozens of outside engineers to study the "Steorn Effect" using solid and nanonickel alloys, but key elements to a successful replication were always out of reach. Now Ahern (PhD in Materials Science from MIT, consultant to the USAF and formerly of Ames National Laboratory) is similarly announcing energy production from asymmetric magnetism. Here is his presentation (actually more of a pitch... and parts are visually clipped) to the New Energy Symposium: http://cnse.albany.edu/download/Vibronic_Energy_Technologies.pdf

In NextBigFuture on Nov 18 of last year, it was reported that Ahern explained his findings to Akito Takahashi working to replicate the LENR experiments of Yashiaki Arata in early 2009 and he (Takahashi) succeeded immediately.

As NextBigFuture reported,
"Ahern has been funded for 2.5 years to replicate Arata and then push on towards Piantelli. Ahern has also been guiding George Miley's group at UIUC on this nanotechnology, and the group seems to be enjoying a great deal of success in the month on October.

It also appears that the phenomenon may account for and explains a persistent mystery regarding the unification of physics.

Ahern states "In the last 8 weeks I have been astounded by a superior nanotechnology that will capture the imagination of even the greatest foes of LENR. I believe all of LENR is just a new and unanticipated form of nanomagnetism."

First Research for Powering Vehicles with LENR

In my book "Gravity 2.0" I addressed the importance of employing uninterruptible and long lasting power sources for long-duration gravity vehicles, floating buildings and interstellar space craft.

I stated at that time (March 2011) that the U.S. Navy, and professors Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi of the University of Bologna among others were testing LENR (low energy nuclear reaction) reactors. LENR is the current generation of what used to be called "cold fusion." Though 1MW power plants are currently being tested in Florida using this technology, to date there had not been an effort to employ this new technology for powering vehicles... but that has now changed.

As reported in E-Cat World, LENR Cars is a site that has recently appeared with the stated goal of "developing a zero emission car, self sustained in terms of energy for at least 40,000 km." The project is headed by entrepreneur and engineer Nicolas Chauvin who is based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Their cars will be powered with nickel-hydrogen LENR reactors.

According to the site, the preference is to use Defkalion GT's 45kW Hyperion reactor as the basis for the LENR powered cells they hope to develop. Defkalion is a Greek firm leading industrial applications of LENR. LENR Cars were presenters at the recent International Low Energy Nuclear Reactions Symposium in Williamsburg, Virinia (ILENRS 12) and here is the slide show they used: http://lenrnews.eu/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/LENR_CARS_NChauvin_ILENRS-12x.pdf

EHT and the Higgs

The Higgs boson has been in the news lately. Its detection (or at least the detection of a particle very similar to a singular Higgs) has been claimed by CERN. But as reported in various scientific publications, further analysis of the data from particle physicists at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois suggests that CERN is just about as likely to have found evidence for more exotic varieties of the Higgs particle, called Higgs doublets or Higgs triplets. These "impostor" Higgs particles are part of a non-Standard Model interpretation of the Higgs concept, where several different Higgs-type particles (instead of just one) are together responsible for the Higgs field. In fact, a popular theory known as supersymmetry predicts at least five Higgs particles, and others predict many more.

What does Extended Heim Theory say of the Higgs? Here are snippets from various articles authored by Hauser and Droescher.

The 6 generators of O(2, q) for subspace S2 give rise to 6 Higgs fields (bosons) through which fermions are coming into existence (mass and charge). Six Higgs fields should exist, whose lightest particle mass should have, according to considerations from EHT, a mass of 182.7 ± 0.7 GeV.

The 6 anti-Higgs bosons of O(2,q) from subspace I2 procure mass and charge, including imaginary mass for the particles representing non-ordinary matter. In total there should exist twelve Higgs fields (two O(2,q) groups) that endow physical particles (fields) with their inherent charges.

It is assumed that the current of the superconducting electrons (Cooper pairs) causes a current of imaginary electrons. Imaginary particles are formed via the Higgs mechanism, for instance, as described by Kaku (Kaku, M.: Quantum Field Theory, Oxford, 1993).

Because of the twelve Higgs fields, 12 charges are proposed; four of them should be of gravitational nature. And that's what is proposed in EHT, gravitophotons v0gp-, v0gp+, v0g, and v0q.
