1. ## Concepts behind Field

From what I understand a "field" is a condition in space created by the parent particle. Each particle like the electron gives off "virtual particles" that exist for the most briefest of moments then the virtual particle snaps back to the parent then the VP again extends out from the parent particle in a different direction. Imagine yourself as an electron and you have one arm to push in a random direction. Your hand would effect other electrons by pushing on their hands and keeping their distance. Mind you, you would have to extend your arm and snap it back to yourself at a super incredible rate. Let me know if this sounds right.
2. ## White laser light question.

What advantages would there be to having a laser that can output the color white? I seen some videos on youtube that have 3 different lasers lined up with mirrors that combine the colors RGB to output white. I do have an idea on how to make a single unit laser that can output the color white. I tried to search on the net if these white laser units already exist. If they do then I haven't come across it yet. Though I'm sure I'm not the only person to come up with the solution I am thinking about.

5. ## How much would it cost to go to the moon and live there as a civilian?

I hear that a ticket to the space station will cost a regular civilian about 10 million bucks for a short stay orbiting around the earth. So, if some mega-tycoon had the crazy bucks at their disposal. What would it take in the way of money (which I'm sure will be in the many billions) and equipment to actually take a person to the moon and live their sustainably? I know this is one of the goals for nasa, but they are forced to be on a strict budget. So if the money was available, how much do you all would think would cost to go to and live on the moon as well as have trips back and forth to the earth as well?
6. ## Electromagnetic Re-Entry Heat Shield

Read it all here: http://www.universetoday.com/2009/11/30/the-next-generation-of-heat-shield-magnetic/ This heat shield idea does make a lot of sense. When a craft enters the atmosphere, it generates heat from the immense pressure of reentry. When this happens much of that super-heated air becomes plasma and is able to be influenced by magnetic fields. Did I describe this accurately enough? Also, in the diagram on that site, the magnetic coil looks like a simple solenoid. Was this coil shape simplified for the causal reader, or is this the actual coil design? Or is it's because the coil is a superconductor it will provide a diamagnetic field? Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedNo one has anything to say on this? Come on, this is the closest thing we have now to those fictional shields we've all heard about on those sci-fi shows. Either no one has any interest, or this has been discussed in another thread. I did a search on it and came up empty. Anyone?
7. ## Avatar's floating boulders

Even with a room-temperature SC it would have to be immersed in one HELL of a dense magnetic field area.
8. ## I been play around with a program called Phun

Lemme ask you all this then. Lets say we have a 100kg mass traveling at 100km/hour. If we somehow changed the mass of that entire object were reduced to 50kg, would it's traveling speed stay the same or be reduced?

10. ## High voltage coil question.

I hear that main power lines only have limited power going through them to avoid the lines sagging too much. Is the sagging of the power lines just due to the heat and/or something else?
11. ## Inertial Drive Proven??

Overunity? That's not the claim here like swansont stated. The inventor does claim better efficiency, just not over 100%. He claimed it got 20x better efficiency than a jet engine. Gonna look up to see what that rate is for a jet engine, unless someone already knows it offhand. The dispute is that this device (and my image design) says that if they work in a vacuum as claimed, they'll be raping (violating) newton in his grave. Which is not my intention at all.
12. ## Inertial Drive Proven??

Swansont, so this device can only work where there is friction? So using this as a space drive is out of the question? If so, Darn it! Neat idea though- Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedHere's my version of the EM equivalent of the inertial drive: As you see it's not hard to build each unit. It consists of a clear plastic tube with closed off ends, copper coil, rare earth circular magnet (in light gray), a 250 gram weight (in dark gray), and a spring to provide tension as the EM coil slowly allows the magnet and weight back to initial position. As you see with the signal patterns it's a DC biased smoothed sawtooth (i think). The full voltage is immediately applied and then gradually reduced to zero then the cycle repeats. In this image I have 5 driver units, but one can do the job. As the power signal is applied to the EM coil to rapidly compress the weighted magnet against the tension spring. When this happens the driver unit lurches right. The weight then slowly returns to its starting position as the voltage slowly drops down to zero. Having 5 of these units (or more) can smooth out the process instead of having a constant jerking of the vessel it is moving. Whats great that I almost have the parts to build this thing. All I need is the signal/power supply and a spring to give this a go. I hope you all don't beat me up too much for my purposed design as it only took me an hour or so to come up with.
13. ## Inertial Drive Proven??

So basically, this is more like a imbalance drive than inertial one?? If so, can this be done with electromagnets and some heavy permanent magnets? Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedOk, assuming those posted seen the video, how exactly is the boat moving if this device is a fraud?
14. ## Inertial Drive Proven??

ok, I finnaly found A link on him, and the name in the original post was spelled wrong. http://www.nottaughtinschools.com/Roy-Thornson%20/index.html I could buy most of the parts from home depot to see if this can work on a smaller scale. Too bad I'm flat broke.
15. ## Inertial Drive Proven??

Check this video out on YouTube I just came across today. This looks real, but then again, I'm a "casual" physicist. Lets say this is legit, what would be the EM version of this device? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmtWcmm2Wgw&feature=related As you can see in the video, the boat moves in the water with just the device that is enclosed in a box to prevent claims of it moving air. Either the device is working or someone is blowing really hard on the boat to make it move. I tried to look up more information on the inventor, Roy Thornsen, to no avail. I tried to look on on Google or Wikipedia and still got squat. I'm gonna rip this video from YouTube just in case it gets yanked for whatever reason. I would hate to think that the inventor and invention are being "silenced" by whomever. Thoughts?
