I Project Greenglow? Anti-Gravity?

  1. Mar 24, 2016 #1
    I can't find any good sources on the science behind Project Greenglow. All the articles I see are full of fluff. Are they trying to divorce gravitational mass from inertial mass? i.e., trying to get more gravitational mass out of less inertial mass, or I should say more space-time curvature from less inertial mass?

    As far as I know, if you want to curve space-time as much as a star curves space-time, then you need the same mass/energy/density as a star. And we think rocket fuel is "heavy"....

    Crackpot, crackpot, crackpot, ..... (sigh)

    It never ceases to amaze me how much crackpot rubbish can get funding if it holds the promise of something highly desirable (such as an anti-grav drive).

    That was my gut reaction, too, but I wanted to be sure
