Time Travel Could Be Enabled by Circulating Lasers

Weak and strong gravitational fields can be produced by a single continuously circulating unidirectional beam of light. In the weak gravitational field of a unidirectional ring laser, it is predicted that a spinning neutral particle, when placed in the ring, is dragged around by the resulting gravitational field. Ron Mallett has new exact solutions of …

If EMdrive is real and scales with Q factor then we get almost Star Trek level Technology

Adam Crowl considers spaceships if EM-Drive is verified as a real thing. If the NASA emdrive performance of 1.2 millinewtons per kilowatt. 8.3 TeraWatts of power would be needed to provide 10 million newtons of thrust to accelerate a 1000 ton space-craft at 1 gee of acceleration. We have no power source that could generate …

Berkeley labs new hybrid membrane has eight times more carbon dioxide permeability which will make carbon capture more efficient

A new, highly permeable carbon capture membrane developed by scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) could lead to more efficient ways of separating carbon dioxide from power plant exhaust, preventing the greenhouse gas from entering the atmosphere and contributing to climate change. The researchers focused on a hybrid …

Berkeley Lab scientists make major advance in understanding a basic process of life with structure of protein organization at beginning of every gene

Your DNA governs more than just what color your eyes are and whether you can curl your tongue. Your genes contain instructions for making all your proteins, which your cells constantly need to keep you alive. But some key aspects of how that process works at the molecular level have been a bit of a …
