In order to travel interstellar space in reasonable time frames?rather than lifetimes as present theories and propulsion capabilities dictate?a revolution in spacecraft propulsion theory is required. This propulsion must be attained by natural principles without reaction-mass fuel and be capable of accelerations to superluminal velocities without relativistic limitations, or at the least, allow for the highest possible relativistic velocities. Today\'s science hasn\'t been able to envision such a breakthrough concept. It can only be done with a revolutionary and visionary theory that goes beyond the parameters of today\'s established science. This breakthrough concept is a new theory of the gravitational force, which lends itself to being artificially redirected as a spaceship propulsion system. This redirection is called ?Twisting Gravity,? and utilizes the natural energies inherent in the atoms of the craft itself?to move itself?with no reaction mass or engines required. Twisting gravity allows spacecraft to travel to distant star systems, descend to a planet\'s surface and return in acceptable time frames, utilizing spacecrafts of unlimited size and payload-carrying capability. It requires no space-stations, shuttles, or any space or moon-based support facilities, nor earth facilities other than for payload and personnel requirements.
