The R. M. Santilli Foundation is sponsoring studies on faster than light (superluminal) communications to promote the development of new communication technologies as well as to attempt contact with extra terrestrial civilizations since the speed of light is excessively slow for galactic distances.

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a novel way of producing light pulses that are "superluminal"–in some sense they travel faster than the speed of light. The technique, called four-wave mixing, reshapes parts of light pulses and advances them ahead of where they would have been had they been left to travel unaltered through a vacuum. The new method could be used to improve the timing of communications signals and to investigate the...

Creating Light From A Vacuum

Scientists at Chalmers have succeeded in creating light from vacuum — observing an effect first predicted over 40 years ago. The results have been published in the journal Nature. In an innovative experiment, the scientists have managed to capture some of the photons that are constantly appearing and disappearing in the vacuum. The experiment is based on one of the most counterintuitive, yet, one of the most important principles in quantum mechanics: that vacuum is by no means empty...

Lee Rannals for RedOrbit.com Science Channel's "Through The Worm Hole" will be airing its new episode "Can We Travel Faster Than Light?" on Wednesday July 20th in classic mind-blowing style. The show, hosted by Morgan Freeman, steps out of the realm of typical television programming and pushes your mind to a new elevation of thought, opening up the portal of curiosity for future endeavors in space travel. Having the pleasant voice of Freeman makes the video offer the feeling of comfort,...

Scientists say they have discovered the mechanism that causes tiny objects to levitate, a discovery that may pave the way for the ability to create nanotechnology machines in the future. The apparent levitation was observed as a result of repulsive force between a thin sheet of silica and a small gold-plated bead, Harvard physicist Federico Capasso and colleagues reported in the journal Nature.This so-called Casimir force of repulsion could be replicated and used to create friction-free parts...

Cymbals don't clash of their own accord "“ in our world, anyway. But the quantum world is bizarrely different. Two metal plates, placed almost infinitesimally close together, spontaneously attract each other. What seems like magic is known as the Casimir force, and it has been well-documented in experiments. The cause goes to the heart of quantum physics: Seemingly empty space is not actually empty but contains virtual particles associated with fluctuating electromagnetic fields. These...

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- The quest for a single theory that unites all of the universe's fundamental forces has thus far eluded physicists, but that has not stopped a team of them from clearing the way for nanotechnologists while they look for it. The group, which includes Purdue University's Ephraim Fischbach, has recently completed research that improves our understanding of how tiny objects placed very close together can influence each other. Their experiment, which involves the...

Word of the Day
attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
