Negative Mass

Post by emoallen3433 on Sat Aug 01, 2015 4:51 pm

I have been working in warp theory. I have tried many means of breaking the light barrier. None of them work. Except for one. An Alcubierre Drive. This warp drive uses mass and negative mass to expand and contract spacetime to make you move. In your frame of reference(inside the "bubble" the drive creates), you are not traveling at the speed of light, but to observers outside of the bubble, you are. But because you are not traveling faster than c in your reference frame, it is perfectly within the laws of physics. But one problem i have run into is the fact that most physicists think that objects with negative mass experience gravity normally... and to a certain extent they do. They attract each other, but they should repel objects with mass. An example. If you have an object with negative mass and you try to wrap your hand around it, it will repel your hand. Due to gravitation being an inverse square law, the closer you are to it, the more force its going to use to push you away. Furthermore, instead of curving spacetime to make gravity wells, objects with negative mass would make gravity "hills". But what still puzzles even me, is the way negative mass is achieved. I think that negative energy would give an object negative mass, as the only example is the Casimir Effect creating a negative energy density.

I meant to say that the drive makes it seem like you are traveling faster than the speed of light. My bad.

The only place ive seen that agrees with me on the gravitational interactions of objects with negative mass is wikipedia lol.

Yes, I am familiar with this theory. I do some special calibrations for NASA (I don't work for them), but they use some of the products the company I work for manufactures. I do follow them some and I know the project you mentioned has and I believe still is being researched by them. It indeed would supercede the speed of light if it can be achieved - because it would be actually warping space. It would be in my opinion a radically different form of travel. I hope we can figure this out!

Writing a paper on the theoretical mechanics of negative mass.

I emailed the professor of physics at MIT. Hopefully he can direct me to collaborators for my project c:

This is the warp metric.

I really need more people to work on this project with me. Is anyone interested?
