Engineering the Zero Point Field and Polarizable Vacuum
for Interstellar Flight - KeelyNet 04/06/02


A paper that I presented at the First International Workshop on Field Propulsion in the UK a little over a year ago has now been published (after peer review and changes) in the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS), copy enclosed. We are very pleased with this publication, as it presents a very balanced view.

First, we cover the potential promise of manipulating vacuum energy for spaceflight energy/propulsion, while also presenting a very sober analysis of the daunting problems involved.

Second, we take a look at the so-called “EXH electromagnetic field propulsion” of interest to many, only to find (unfortunately) that it is flawed at its roots because of rather arcane reasons. Hopefully this latter finding will encourage other researchers to redirect their efforts along more fruitful lines.

Finally, in Table 2 we present the basics of truly exotic propulsion based on a “metric engineering” approach to general relativity that hopefully some day will result in engineering embodiments.

Best regards,

Engineering the Zero Point Field
