  • Review of Experimental Concepts for Studying the Quantum Vacuum Field (2006) [Updated 4 months ago]

    We review concepts that provide an experimental framework for exploring the possibility and limitations of accessing energy from the space vacuum environment. Quantum electrodynamics (QED) and stochastic electrodynamics (SED) are the theoretical approaches guiding this experimental investigation. This investigation explores the question of whether the quantum vacuum field contains useful energy that can be exploited for applications under the action of a catalyst, or cavity structure, so that energy conservation is not violated. This is similar to the same technical problem at about the same level of technology as that faced by early nuclear energy pioneers who searched for, and successfully discovered, the unique material structure that caused the release of nuclear energy via the neutron chain reaction.


  • Experimental Concepts for Generating Negative Energy in the Laboratory (2006) [Updated 4 months ago]
    by Eric W. Davis, Harold E. Puthoff   read the paper:

    Implementation of faster-than-light (FTL) interstellar travel via traversable wormholes, warp drives, or other spacetime modification schemes generally requires the engineering of spacetime into very specialized local geometries. The analysis of these via Einstein's General Theory of Relativity (GTR) field equations plus the resultant equations of state demonstrate that such geometries require the use of "exotic" matter in order to induce the requisite FTL spacetime modification. Exotic matter is generally defined by GTR physics to be matter that possesses (renormalized) negative energy density, and this is a very misunderstood and misapplied term by the non-GTR community. We clear up this misconception by defining what negative energy is, where it can be found in nature, and we also review the experimental concepts that have been proposed to generate negative energy in the laboratory.


  • Levi?Civita Effect in the Polarizable Vacuum (PV) Representation of General Relativity (2005) [Updated 4 months ago]
    by Harold E. Puthoff, Eric W. Davis   read the paper:

    The polarizable vacuum (PV) representation of general relativity (GR), derived from a model by Dicke and related to the ?THe ? ? formalism used in comparative studies of gravitational theories, provides for a compact derivation of the Levi?Civita effect (both magnetic and electric), herein demonstrated.

    An International Journal Devoted to the Conceptual Bases and Fundamental Theories of Modern Physics. Foundations of Physics merged with Foundations of Physics Letters on March 1, 1970.

  • Correlated Emission of Electrons (1998) [Updated 4 months ago]

    It is difficult to find critical work about Einstein's Theory of Relativity in most standard physics journals. Galilean Electrodynamics, founded by the late Dr. Petr Beckmann in 1989, is a notable exception. Since Einstein's 1905 paper, Relativity has had many critics and although it is widely accepted today, there is still a minority who question the central tenets of Relativity Theory. Galilean Electrodynamics is devoted to publishing high quality scientific papers, refereed by professional scientists, that are critical of Special Relativity, General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Big Bang theory and other establishment doctrines.

    Speculations in Science and Technology was the brainchild of an American in Australia. William M. Honig, an electrical engineer, had left New York and a career in industry in 1972 to join the faculty of the Western Australia Institute of Technology, in "the beautiful remote city of Perth." Honig had published numerous papers in his field. He was frustrated, though, by the lack of acceptance of some of his more speculative ideas in physics, and by what he called "the canonical policy of established journals." He had met a number of colleagues of like mind and, in 1977, he decided to do something about it. He assembled an editorial board of well-known scientists, including a Nobel Prize winner and a member of the Royal Society, and with some financing from his university and the rest from his savings, launched a journal of his own.

    "Recognizing the value of frank speculation as preceding theoretical and experimental construction," announced the opening editorial, "and noting that the informal dissemination of ideas has been impeded by the huge growth and differentiation of all scientific fields . . . we welcome papers dealing with specialised, general, and interdisciplinary topics in the physical, mathematical, biological, medical, and engineering sciences. No topics related to ESP, UFO, etc., will be accepted."

    Some 2,500 letters poured in over the first five months. (One early correspondent, writer Arthur C. Clarke, found Speculations "fascinating, but 90 percent over my head." Clarke couldn't resist offering up a few casual speculations of his own: "Is it possible to photograph, or make an objective record of, 'phosphenes,' ? the fascinating and infinitely varied images seen when pressing on the closed eyes? This would be of great psychological and optical interest.") There were "favourable but cautionary" notices in Science and the New York Times, among other publications. By the end of the first year, Honig was able to strike a deal with the publisher Elsevier Sequoia, of Lausanne, Switzerland; despite changing hands and continents in the intervening 15 years, the journal has been appearing ever since.

    The wealth of topics it has considered is boggling. The journal's pages have hosted lively debate on ball lightning and schizophrenic cognition, black holes and the prediction of heart attacks, body transplants and interstellar communication, as well as the perennial exchanges on the nature of subatomic particles.

    Established in 1987, The Center for Frontier Sciences is an open forum that networks information on the frontier issues of science, medicine and technology. The Center is dedicated to the open and unbiased examination of any theories, hypotheses, model that challenge prevailing scientific views using sound scientific methods and reasoning. It does not promote or endorse particular positions, but encourages critical review and healthy skepticism. The Center maintains high academic standards and a neutral profile at all times.

    On its advisory and editorial boards are distinguished researchers, scientists, physicians, theoreticians, and engineers from throughout the world - all of whom agree with the Center's purpose as an outlet for new inquiries and ideas. The Center carries out its mission through:

    * The publication of its journal, Frontier Perspectives
    * Hosting international conferences where scientists share their thoughts on many frontier issues
    * An academic lecture series which is open to the public and audio taped
    * Internationally networking and exchanging information with scientists and students
