Paul March is now working at the NASA Eagleworks labs with Sonny White. They made the news this year with the work on the EMdrive and Cannae drive tests.
This is an old interview of Paul March’s earlier Mach Effect propulsion work. Mach Effect propulsion experiments have proven difficult to scale up.
Aerospace Engineer Paul March has been working diligently on the Mach-Lorentz Thruster project for several years. He talks about the beginning of true reactionless propulsion in the lab, as presented in his stunning STAIF 2006 experimental results.
The Mach-Lorentz Thruster project is an outgrowth of research by Dr. James Woodward, which predicts a net-directional reactionless drive thrust originating from a piezo-electric crystal resonating in a phase-locked magnetic field. The project has spawned several replication attempts including March’s, and despite some negative setbacks in a European replication, March is among the American inventors seeing positive results above the experimental threshold for error.
What does all this mean? March explains that there are two interesting theoretical terms that describe the operation of the Mach Lorentz Thruster — the first being an equation predicting highly-scalable reactionless propulsion as seen in the lab, and the second predicting wormhole effects that may create a negative mass state useful someday to stabilize a traversable wormhole.
Paul March and Andrew Palfreyman co-authored a paper on reactionless drives and the Woodward Effect entitled “The Woodward Effect” for the STAIF Conference which is scheduled for publication by the American Institute of Physics. March’s commentary on this emerging branch of research are a foreshadowing of what appears to be a significant breakthrough in emerging BPP reactionless drive research.
