The 100 Year Starship™ study was created by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) in partnership with NASA Ames Research Center to explore the next generation technologies needed for long distance manned space travel.

The goal of this study was to lay the foundation for designing a business model that would encourage private co-investment of the intellectual and financial capital required to achieve the necessary advancements in various fields of study over the next century.

It was also an opportunity to spark the imaginations of students, academia, industry, researchers and the general population to ignite enthusiasm for continued research and advancements in technology and the exploration of space.

    When we convert to using LIGHT communication we are going to see that we are not alone.
    LiFi with LEDs means that “information is everything”. Harald Haas is my new world scholar. Just look at his dissertation at TED. He is the first person who discovered that we could communicate with light. This is more than a leap of faith for us all. This is just astounding. As Haas said, “Light made Us”, literally. He said there literally millions of applications for light from hospitals to cars communicating with traffic lights and other cars, etc.

    If we had UFO’s and we examined them we would find they don’t have wires. There is nothing connecting the control panel with anything but it works. How does it work? They communicate with LED lights rather than the more restrictive wires. When we convert to using LIGHT communication we are going to see that we are not alone.

  2. Hi,

    I wrote a theory that makes FTL drives, time travel into the future and levitation easy to achieve.

    But we first need to accept GR is wrong. I have discovered that GR uses a constant into its equation:

    And no astrophysicist is able to defend that fallacy:

    To picture the FTL drives, here is a sketch:

    Sincerely yours,
