The G-Files: Part 1 of a series...

Given the recent revival of interest in Project Greenglow following the recent publication of a memoir by the project head Dr Ron Evans, as well as the possibility of a BBC "Horizon" documentary on the subject in 2016, I decided to make available my personal collection of papers and other relevant information, relating both directly and indirectly to Greenglow. Here are some introductory presentations and papers to get you started - more will follow in the coming weeks and months. Here's a quick summary of the documents:

Best current propulsion blog

This blog was set up in response to the decline of the AmericanAntigravity site, and before the Tau Zero Foundation had got underway. Now that Centauri Dreams has rebranded itself the news site for Tau Zero, I would refer all those interested to that site for the latest news and information, partly because they have more time to devote to it and with a view to reducing the huge number of sites dedicated to the subject, which only seems to increase confusion and the propagation of errors.Link

More Gravity Anomalies?

Following on from the Pioneer Anomaly, there now appear to be several other spacecraft undergoing anomalous accelerations.

Warp Drive Symposium - London

If you can make it, this symposium at the British Interplanetary Society in November looks interesting. Not many confirmed speakers as yet, though. For those of you unable to make it, the following links to work by the known speakers may be of interest:

Remo Garattini:
Spacetime Foam and Vacuum Energy [PDF]
The Cosmological Constant as an Eigenvalue of a Sturm-Liouville problem and its renormalization [PPT]

Claudio Maccone:
Levi-Civita Effect in the polarizable vacuum (PV) representation of general relativity [PDF]

Unfortunately I couldn't find any references to the work of Jeremy Gardiner. If you know of any, let me know & I'll add it to the list!

Reversing the Casimir Effect

News on this development at St Andrews University, using metamaterials with negative refractive indices, first appeared last month, but there's now also a quite entertaining page explaining the principles for a general readership.

Useful Amounts of Photon Propulsion?

Just noticed this, apparently the first photon propulsion system to produce practical, useful amounts of force.
