About this project

Project Background: In 2007 Solomon discovered the massless formula for gravitational acceleration g=τc^2 (where τ is the change in time dilation divided by that height). This discovery opened the door to the possibility that there is a new & undiscovered physics of interstellar propulsion.

The significance of this equation g=τc^2 is that this same equation is valid for all three accelerations, gravitational, mechanical & electromagnetic accelerations. Quantum theory on the other hand has a different particle for each type of force.

Therefore, by Occam Razor, g=τc^2 is a better fit with reality than quantum theory’s Standard Model. Wow! Therefore, the new physics of gravity modification  tells us that a new physics for interstellar propulsion is just waiting to be discovered!

The essence of this project is to figure out if it is possible to dematerialize from an origin location and then rematerialize at a destination location without effecting velocity or acceleration to that destination, just as photons in the Airy disc are able to localize anywhere at random.

We don’t have to discover all of this new physics. All we have to do is show that a new physics is there. A newness that would engage enough mainstream physicists to get this community of physicists running their own experiments and rewriting theories in their chase for Nobel Prizes.

Project Objective: Solomon’s research shows that this new physics can be discovered by understanding how photon probabilities are implemented in Nature.

This project’s objective is to answer the question, can we control the photon’s environment to predetermine where the photon will appear? In a more technical language one would ask, if it is possible to alter the probability of where a photon will localize?

If we can figure this out, we have taken the first steps towards discovering the physics of interstellar travel. And we know that it is just a matter of time before we can build technologies that can "translocate" starships from origin to destination. This is Ground Zero!

Three Questions: The Foundation wants to fund experiments that no one has conducted, that would, ask three questions:
(1) What is the relationship between the electromagnetic transverse wave height and the probability of localization?

(2) Would non-returning quantum entangled photons separated orthogonally by at least 32m continue to exhibit entanglement?

(3) What is the true shape of the particle probability field, is it Gaussian or not?

The Project Schedule:
(a) May 2014: Receive funds from Kickstarter.

(b) May-August 2014: Issue project rewards.

(c) July 2014: Issue Request For Proposals (RFPs) for scientists to propose how they will conduct experiments to answer the three questions.

(d) September 2014: Review all RFPs. Select the most suitable, with the funds available. Disburse 90% of the funds to the awardees.

(e) September 2014 – March 2015: Scientists conduct experiments and write up reports/papers on their findings.

(f) March 2015: Completed papers are sent to the Foundation.

(g) March – September 2015: Disburse the remaining 10% of the funds, to those who have published their findings at reputable peer reviewed conferences & journals.

Uses of Funds: The funds will be used as follows:
(i) $300,000 to be issued as grants ranging in amounts from $50,000 to $100,000 each.
(ii) $60,000 to be used to fund 12-man months of salaries of staff at Xodus One Foundation involved in this project, administering, reviewing & awarding successful applicants.
(iii) $15,000 expenses to cover project outreach, travel, marketing, and any unforeseen expenses.

Progress: We will keep you updated on the progress.

Notes:
(1) All of Solomon's published papers are available at http://www.iseti.us/

(2) Solomon is the principal investigator and author of the 12-year study titled "An Introduction to Gravity Modification, 2nd Edition", available on Amazon.com.

Risks and challenges

A potential risk is that we would not be able to secure enough qualified researchers to respond to the RFPs to the 3 questions this year. If that happens the RFPs will remain open until they are fulfilled.

If the fund raising is oversubscribed then we will take two approaches. First, provide multiple grants for experiments proposed, so that if one research team finds null results, another trying a different method might be successful. Second, RFPs will remain open until used up or put to a use that would satisfy this projects objectives.
