Space has been in the news a lot lately. Last week for example I blogged about NASA's ion propulsion experiments and about the fact that NASA is apparently staking a lot on their development and use in deep space exploration manned missions. Well they should, for as I and others have pointed out many times, chemical rockets are simply not adequate for a sustained human presence in deep space. They're about as useful as a canoe for shipping goods across the Pacific Ocean.

In that respect, I've also pointed out that NASA and DARPA both have made the investigation of "space warp" technologies a part of their long-term research projects and goals. Now there's this "little" story that, oddly enough, was reported in Russia's Sputnik online magazine, which Mr. V.T. spotted and kindly passed along:

Crushing Physics as You Knew it: Scientists Create Liquid With Negative Mass

The essence of the experiment consisted of creating a super-cooled liquid, and pulsing it with lasers:

It’s exactly what it sounds like: give a normal object a push and it’ll accelerate away from the force of your hand. Give this negative-mass fluid a shove and it does the opposite, accelerating towards the force pushing on it.

Negative mass has nothing to do with disappointing Bioware RPGs, but rather was predicted by the work of general relativity physicist Hermann Bondi, who in 1957 published a paper that argued that negative mass was just as possible as negative electric charges. Although strange, there was no reason that negative mass could not exist because it did not violate the conservation of energy or momentum.


The team was led by Michael Forbes, a WSU assistant professor of physics and astronomy. First, they synthesized a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), a form of matter that is created by cooling a low density gas to ultra-low temperatures. BECs are superfluids, meaning that they behave like ordinary liquids except that when stirred, they never stop moving. BECs have many strange properties and are key in the creation of other exotic forms of matter.

The BEC was created from rubidium atoms, and was then trapped in a web of lasers. A second set of lasers then agitated the BEC, causing it to rush out of the web as though it had negative mass. "Once you push, it accelerates backwards," said Forbes in a statement. "It looks like the rubidium hits an invisible wall."

It was the last statement in the article that caught my eye, however, not the results of the experiment itself, and that statement is, as one might guess, the subject for today's high octane speculation:

Although the experiment is an exciting first step, not everyone is sold on it helping us answer fundamental questions about the universe. Martin McCall, a professor of theoretical optics at Imperial College London, praised the WSU team for the successful synthesis, but told The Guardian that he doubts it will have practical applications.
(Emphasis added.)

No practical applications!?!? In a world where NASA and DARPA want the USA to be "warp capable" in a century? On the contrary, I strongly suspect that what we're looking at is precisely an experiment - a "first step" in a technology tree - to create the exotic forms of matter that would be needed to make that space-warping goal a reality. In other words, we're looking at a part of that black projects world in the guise of a "purely theoretical " experiment whose implications - so we're told - have to do with "cosmological physics" and neutron stars and nothing more. And the key here is that the editors at Sputnik are signalizing that they suspect this as well:

Some models of the universe explain the existence of phenomena like gravity and dark energy through the concept of negative mass. Wormholes, hypothetical tunnels in spacetime, may also exist through negative matter. Negative mass would carry negative energy, which could be used to create an Alcubierre warp drive, an engine which contracts space in front of it and expands space behind it to (theoretically) allow for travel far faster than the speed of light.
(Emphasis added)

Now, the editors of Sputnik will also know about NASA's Dr. Harold White, and his recalculations of Alcubierre's warp paper, and his conclusion that the factor of mass-energy conversion needed to create such a warp was smaller than Alcubiuerre's original calculation, small enough, in fact, to make it feasible that it might be achievable by human technology in the not-to distant future. In fact, it was White's recalculation that led to NASA's and DARPA's "warp drive goal." So Sputnik might just be signaling that it suspects what I suspect, namely, that experiments like this one are really in aid of that project, for if in fact what these scientists have demonstrated is a negative mass effect, and therefore that they successfully created it, then it doesn't take much imagination to see all sorts of possibilities.

To put it country simple, it's as if the Russians are saying: "We know what you're really up to, and it's not just about studying neutron stars."

See you on the flip side...

    cool, the new guaranteed weight loss pill, so people can still get bigger and fatter, but not heavier. though too many of those pills swallowed and there could be a problem in the air like the fukushima effected giant sea slugs washing ashore in California.

    Well, what can we do? I feel ya Gizars and Robert B. The dissonance is there, but we are still here pining away the charade is exposed for what it is, the predictive programming , fear , consume , divide and conquer. Is there still a need for the seat belt? Who’s on the planning committee for the Death Star xmas party this year? I’m out of suggestions.

    Doc, when u look at the little we do know of tesla (and we might as well treat his claims as facts at this point) as well as the glimpses of latest weaponry n tech, it becomes much simpler to sub in terminology n concepts commonly accepted in electric universe theory to splain easier n far simpler all these hawkins gravity based myths that are impossible to conceptualize let alone test maeningfully let alone measure. Dark matter? How bout plasma energy not in glow mode. Negative mass? How bout electomag force (1 x 10 to the 32nd times stronger than gravity) exerting unseen unmentioned power? Giant arc welder death rays from the sky? How bout harnessed n guided solar electromag radiation that would otherwise have made it to n thru our ionosphere down to n thru earths core in a safer more gradual manner?

    • zendogbreath on October 29, 2017 at 10:02 pm

      All that dark matter that allegedly comprises such a vast majority of the universe is as delusionally impossible to concieve let alone observe let alone test. But picturing 98% of the universe as plasma (lightning) flowing from n thru various capacitors (stars, planets,…) then the supposed vacuum of space is a wildly riding sea of energy. Which makes most of us out to be scared tribal children who dont know enuf 2 swim let alone boat let alone sail n fish n choose our paths on a sea we claim 2 each other doesnt exist.

      Goshhawks. A little engineering help? Give us a quick glimpse in how solar ejecta accellerate as they move out thru the heliosphere? N how that ejecta connects the aun with everything.

    Call me skeptical but I’m not buying what they’re selling, in this case negative mass.

    So, you take some super-cooled rubidium atoms and make an even more super-cooled BEC condensate from it, then entrap it in a web of lasers, then “agitate” or “push” this super-cooled blob with other lasers, and behold! It does the expected unexpected and “accelerates backwards.”

    “It looks like the rubidium hits an invisible wall,” says the researcher. THIS is the sentence which caught my eye; what a strange thing to say. If this is supposedly negative mass, why would it “hit a wall?” It sounds like the doubly super-duper-cooled blob is going through a state change, after having been poked (and heated) by the second set of lasers, and this is being attributed to, well, wish fulfillment.

    It sounds like a repulsion effect to me, not negative mass, and I don’t understand how that could be initiated by heating/prodding the super-cold BEC condensate with lasers. Now if you told me you had got the blob spinning in a high-speed vortex and then saw some strange effects, I might be more inclined to listen to it, but pushing it around with lasers, like some stray sushi rice with chopsticks? No, sorry, I don’t see it.

      Also, the topic brought to mind monoatomic gold and polonium, both exotic metals which lose or have fluctuations in mass as they change states — or interact with the (gasp) aether.

      • zendogbreath on October 29, 2017 at 10:16 pm

        Nice one basta. Ironic how michu kkaka et al rarely talk charge or anything electric or how trillion watt lasers effect matter (or how often)? They’d all still have us thinking that friction of water particles causes lightning and not that lightning (plasma) makes water.

    I have often thought that what is labeled as ‘antimatter’ by the scientific community should be called ‘anticharge’. It is ordinary matter, just with reversed charge. ‘Antimatter’ would be something that reacted the opposite of ordinary matter, much like the acceleration/deceleration responses in the article. Perhaps, we have (publicly) finally discovered ‘antimatter’…

    On a different subject: Gold!
    “LIGO Detects a Neutron Star Merger”
    “…the vital role that kilonovae [neutron star mergers] play in cosmic chemistry by producing heavy elements, such as gold and platinum. … a ‘large amount of these heavy elements form in this kind of merger.’

    Kilonovae can explain the cosmic abundance of gold and platinum without any need for supernovae to produce these very heavy elements. Those elements will eventually combine with other material to form stars and planets. …astronomers saw ‘direct fingerprints’ of these heavy elements in the data from the Chilean telescopes. …the total mass of heavy elements created by the kilonova was 16,000 times the mass of Earth, including 10 times the mass of Earth in gold and platinum alone.”

    (This implies that we had one or more neutron star mergers in our ‘neighborhood’ before our pre-solar cloud collapsed…)

    A circle features a “diametrical opposition” within itself, balanced in it’s centre. Comparing “Odin’s skills” to “Ashtanga Yoga”, this feature is gone missing in the latter, being a cliché of tradition.

    Idea of breaking out of “Karma wheel” is pivotal. Placing an “eye into a well” is a change of perspective into centre position “Samadhi”. Space is electric, so is warp drive (unbalanced centrifugal force).

    “Odin” is original Yahweh derived from analogue computer. Hakenkreuz & Pyramid.

    I was just reading (skimming really) … an article regarding a new kind of wormhole that some scientists have been thinking about. And, of course, as always to keep a wormhole open, you would need a large amount of so-called “negative energy”. So … timely, I suppose.

    But it looked to me that to make said new wormhole, you would need a wormhole already there to make the new wormhole which was more stable than your every day wormhole (the wormhole being two black holes joined together by a throat). It all sounded just a bit silly really. But you know academics. Nothing silly about they do …

    ps recently read Stephen Baxter’s Xeelee Sequence of “hard sci-fi” books. Full of mad wormhole-y goodness if you read them. I’m not entirely sure I understood half of it but it was a fun ride while it lasted …

    pps again: chemical rockets in this day and age … do me a favour!!!!

      Ur not supposed to understand the concepts. That is how u know theyre smarter n u. Since they understand it n u dont they must be smarter. Not liars. Just smarter.

    • zendogbreath on October 29, 2017 at 10:08 pm

      Oh yah n if u could understand it it wouldnt be hard now would it?

    This will be used in those EM drives the chinese are building. Coat one end with negative mass and it will help acceleration.

    In ways I can understand this elaborate charade; as I carry out one myself, in that, some in my family can’t get past the 9/11 cognitive dissonance required of those so heavily invested in the Breakaway civilization’s mind-boggling charade. So we have many parallel story lines runs concurrently; one with a future beyond-belief technological backdrop, the other a dumbed-down horse and buggy backdrop.
    Now they’re trying to partially merge the lines for the next planned step. But in the background, is the knowledge that the expendable civilization is slowly being fazed out. Problem is, a itchy trigger finger that might be pulled by those with no more feeling than a bullet that leaves the barrel of a rifle.

    The Big Fade-Out is coming.
    But when ?

    • Robert Barricklow on October 29, 2017 at 12:33 pm

      …and that’s the rub –
      that this beyond-belief civilization is not,
      in the end…
      I mean
      are there any good guys, like in the movies?
      Or, this current comic literature, that pays mercenary scribblers for happy endings?
      Wherefore are thee reality?
      And there is irony replete here; as all reality is an illusion.
      I mean the electromagnetic field, that we even know of, is beyond the pale. Unimaginable! And that is just a molecule of knowledge, in the vast seas of the unknowables.
      What a hamster to do,
      running on these never ending wheels of curiosities?

      • Robert Barricklow on October 29, 2017 at 12:35 pm

        Don’t worry.
        Be happy?

    Here I was under the mistaken impression that the Democratic Party was negative mass with the Republican Party being useless mass.
    I would suspect that the dark side of science is far ahead of mainstream science in this regard, as usual. They did, after all, find those “errors” in the equations which they have, so far, failed to share.
