Metric Engineering ?

  1. Nov 19, 2005 #1
    I read someday this job name on the net. I didn't looked inside, but just thought how you could modify the metric....i could only think about the following esoterical method : by matter+antimatter->nomatter+energy..but energy->GR->spacetime metric--->metric engineering ?? Is this meant by this term, or something else ?

    That does seem to be the context -

    I haven't checked the physics - but I am ususally skeptical of such claims.

    and here - The Challenge To Create The Space Drive - http://www.lerc.nasa.gov/WWW/bpp/TM-107289.htm [Broken]
    Well someone at NASA is serious - but again I am usually skeptical.
