Are We Inside a ‘Galactic Transport System’?

In theory, the Milky Way could be a “galactic transport system”

Based on the latest evidence and theories our galaxy could be a huge wormhole (or space-time tunnel such as the one depicted in the recent film Interstellar) and, if that were true, it would be “stable and navigable”. This is the hypothesis put forward in a study published in Annals of Physics and conducted with the participation of SISSA in Trieste [citation below]. Read More →

Magnetic Fields Can Send Particles to Infinity

I’ve always thought that if we’re ever to achieve long-range intersteller space travel, magnetics will play a fairly large role in the process. This is especially true if we’re going to get away from the dependence of currently used rocket fuel in the process. I’m not quite certain of the physics/mechanics involved (yet) but surely magnetic fields will be needed to control the alternative energy source (whatever that may be). Anyhow, this new research (referenced below) caught my attention and I thought I’d share it with you to get your input. Researchers from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM, Spain) have mathematically shown that particles charged in a magnetic field can escape into infinity without ever stopping. One of the conditions is that the field is generated by current loops situated on the same plane. Read More →
