I am researching different technologies to fit into a science fiction story that I have been working on. While Sci-fi usually takes liberties with science in the name of good storytelling, I think it is important to provide as much believability as possible, and this is why I am coming to these forums. Specifically, the problems I am having involve power generation and propulsion. In looking around, I came across a theory called "spin wave technology" that would solve some feasibility issues in my story. While the spin wave theory is currently a theory only, I am wondering what others who might have looked into it think about it. From reading about it, it doesn't seem totally implausible, but on the other hand most things that seem to good...you know the rest. Answers like "It's Bunk" or, "Wow, it will save the world" aren't really useful. I am more interested in the FEASIBILITY behind the claims made about spin wave tech. Is "spin wave technology" a valid pursuit that may or may not yield fruit one day, or is it simply well-disguised psuedo science? In another post, User Integral has posted his opinion, but I'd be interested in messages that might say WHY they feel the way they do one way or another. for the website concerning the research, you can go to the Vasant Corporation. Thanks! Don.
