faster than the speed of light…[propulsion mechanism for science fair]
Albert Einstein said that as a body of mass approaches the speed of light it becomes infinitely massive so it would require an infinite amount of energy to attain light speed. This makes bypassing C velocity (the speed of light) impossible – unitl now.
Velocity greater than C – How the speed of light is overcome…
Einsteins acceleration requires the E=mc2 equation. Einsteins work was focused on certain aspects of the space time continuum. Although it uses energy in the equation – it used a specific type of energy in the equations. The use of this type of energy dictates the need for an infinite amount of energy to accelerate mass to C. The use of centrifical force to accelerate mass, ((bypasses the increase in mass effect)) makes velocities greater than C possible, because it is different than Einstein’s acceleration! It is a different type of acceleration! It is a type of acceleration that does not increase the mass of what it is accelerating!
A spinning disk (like a merry-go-round) in space the size of a small solar system with a train track from the center to its edge can be rotated using conventional means. This is accomplished by applying a rotating force towards its center (how a bicycle tire moves etc.). Since the center of a spinning disk always spins slower than the edge, a mechanical force can be applied towards the center making the edge move rapidly. In other words, a force pushing towards the center of the disk does not have to be moving very fast to make the edge move. This phenominon allows for a continued addition of rotational energy over time to be applied to the disk making this device actually possible to build and to use. It would be possible to get the edge of the disk to spin at 99.9% of the speed of light if a mechanical force is applied towards it center over a long period of time and not violate Einstein’s acceleration limit.
NOW TO ATTAIN C VELOCITY:
The train track from the center to the edge of the disk would allow for a train locamotive to slide off the edge if it began its journey at the center. Everyone has felt the centrifical force as a child when playing on a merry-go-round – you stand at the center and you don’t slide off towards the edge until you begin to move away from the center. As soon as you move away from the center you begin to slide off towards the edge. The train would start rolling down the track slowly and increase in velocity over time utilizing a thrust (in the form of centrifical force) equal to the square of the speed of the disk’s edge.
The amount of thrust applied to the train as it moves towards the edge of the disk is equal to the square of the speed of the disk’s edge. This means, intuitively, that the locamotive will have enough thrust (a square of the edge velocity) to propel it past the speed of light before it hits the edge of the disk providing the track is long enough. This thrust would equal 99.9% of the speed of light times 99.9% of the speed of light or an enormous amount added to the velocity the train will be going automatically just by passing the edge once its released from the disk! Again remember the edge is moving close to light speed so the train is going close to light speed plus the enormous thrust its using to gather momentum from the center where it began its journey.
So, if someone built it, it would have to work. The math proves it. The very fact that humans could build something like this proves that the train would be accelerated past the speed of light as it slid towards the edge. It can actually be made! And since the math proves that the velocity would be greater than C this fact indicates that there is something going on that must bypass the increase in mass problem.
WHY VELOCITY GREATER THAN C IS POSSIBLE:
Centrifical force acts upon mass in a different way and does not expand or increase the mass as the mass is being accelerated by it. The train would slide off the track and fly off into space and an infinate amount of energy would not be needed to accelerate the train to the speed of light for the train WILL NOT increase in mass as it is accelerated. Again, using centrifical force to accelerate mass does not increase the mass of the object! The train will bypass the C velocity barrier as the square of the disks edge speed is applied to the train and the train’s mass will not increase due to the use of centrifical force; so the train will simply accelerate past the speed of light as it approached the edge of the disk bypassing Einstein’s acceleration problem.
You can feel the difference between Einstein’s acceleration and this new type of acceleration. If you are accelerated in a car, for example, the process pulls you back into your seat. If you are on a merry go round and begin to slide off towards the edge your accelerated by a pulling motion on the entire mass of your body! It feels different. There is a difference between Einsteinien acceleration and this type of acceleration. Einsteins acceleration requires Energy due to the E=mc2 equation because his focus on energy.
Einsteins acceleration requires the E=mc2 equation. Einsteins work was focused on certain aspects of the space time continuum. It used a specific type of energy in the equations. The use of this type of energy dictates the need for an infinite amount of energy to accelerate mass to C. The use of centrifical force to accelerate mass, bypasses the increase in mass effect and makes velocities greater than C possible because it is different than Einstein’s acceleration.
This device proves that velocities greater than C can be attained.
