Dr. Mike McCalloh received funding in the amount of $ 1.3 million to create a new engine type, the principle of operation is based on quantum inertia, which suggests that the light can be transformed into traction.
The theory is based on differences in the intensity of the particles and waves formed around the object) in space. The effect is similar to how the sea vessel can be removed from the berth due to carrying towards the waves. Potentially, this technology will allow you to move in space without any fuel, because in fact the electromagnetic field and the interaction of the substance with the light will create craving.
The DARPA agency has allocated $ 1.3 million to the creation of a prototype. It is planned to implement an idea to life for 4 years. For the first 18 months, a team of researchers should develop a prognostic theoretical model based on a quantum inertia model. Further, in Germany and Spain will be carried out tests and performance indicators. Potentially technology can open the possibility of traveling beyond the limits of the solar system.
Even with the use of existing Spacex engines plans to start sending ships to Mars from 2022, and the chief engineer of the company has already talked about the details of the creation
