In the video:
Harold White looks at Pilot Wave Theory
His theory is that Acoustic resonances in the quantum vacuum are directly responsible for atomic structure
Applying a time-varying electromagnetic field using simulation and experimentation
He then has force predictions
Lawrence Krauss argues with White on the quantum physics principles. at 4:00 hours into the video.
Robert Zubrin then follows up about White using 100 times more thrust per kilowatt in the proposed mission beyond what they have measured.
