PLYMOUTH, England, Oct. 26, 2018 — Researchers at the University of Plymouth (UP) have been awarded a $1.3 million grant from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to advance nonfuel propulsion for space travel. UP’s Mike McCullough believes that light can be converted into thrust through the use of quantized inertia (QI). The QI theory predicts that objects can be pushed by differences in the intensity of so-called Unruh radiation in space, similar to the way in which a ship can be pushed toward a dock because there are more waves hitting it from the seaward side. The theory has already...Read full article
