ARTIFICIAL GRAVITY AND ITS POSSIBILITIES

Artificial Gravity, Teleportation, and Space Program was first written for publication in April, 2015. The article was to address some of the most complex areas of space travel NASA is yet to face. Since then, what this writer considered concepts to be in their infancy has advanced, dramatically.

Tempus fugit! Time flies, as the old Latin term applies! Mankind, at war has moved from spears, arrows and shields to guided missiles, nukes and lasers in less than five thousand years? We understood nothing of the sun, earth and sky until now now in the same amount of time?

Now, we have incredible evidence in history, yet we still contemplate the sky and hang onto old concepts until it becomes almost too obvious we must make a major change to move forward? Well, problematic or not, the time has come to invent an efficient method of artificial gravity for humans in space for the space program to blossom and grow.

SPACE FLIGHT BEGINNINGS

From the beginnings of the space programs of both the United States and then the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR-Soviet Union-Russia) from 1957 onward, it was a ‘space race’. The ‘cold war’ between the two super powers ended in late 1991. On April 13, 1961, the Soviet Union’s cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to be launched into space. Just 23 days later on May 5, 1961, Alan Shepard became the first American launched into space from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA.

The continued exploits of both the United States and Russia continued with such programs as the Mercury, Friendship, Vostok, Gemini, Soyuz, and Apollo in the 1960’s. In December of 1968 Apollo 8 successfully orbited the moon and returned, safely. The Apollo 11 mission successfully landed astronauts on the moon on July 20, 1969. There were six missions with soft landings on the moon ending in August 22, 1976. The next soft landing on the moon was not until December of 2013 and that was robotic. In the 1990’s the Chinese entered manned space programs with the Shenzhou missions.

SINCE THE BEGINNINGS

Since then, the space programs of various nations have moved forward in both human and robotic exploration. Ultimately, both nations, who competed for years would have to realize without each other to collaborate, their programs would be compromised. What if something tragic would happen while in orbit of earth or, perish forbid, on reentry to home? Those concerns did come from unfortunate and tragic occurrences that happened both on earth and reentry from missions by both countries over the years.

After manned moon landings, sights were set for the next step: Mars. Up until now, man enduring weightless environments had only been for short periods of time. No one then knew of how the human body would stand up to a continuous weightless environment over longer periods. Hence, programs were developed to research not only a weightless state for man, it was also for other animal and plant life from microbial to existing biological forms.

SPACE STATIONS

The age began where orbiting space stations were constructed beginning with the Soviet Salyut 1, launched April 19, 1971. Soon to follow was the United States Skylab and Soviet Almaz stations, which were really not much more than orbiting “tin cans” with a minimum complement humans and testing equipment. Although, short lived, these missions led to the space station we know today as ISS (International Space Station) and the Chinese Tiangong-1.

The Russian (originally Soviet) MIR space station was the largest in orbit until its decay and ultimate return from space in 2001. To be able to supply the ISS, as well as, launch satellites into orbit or space, the United States developed the shuttle program. Soyuz is used to this day to transport astronauts to and from the ISS orbiting platform. Now, with the advent of private space enterprises and the cessation of the NASA shuttle program, there are now robotic shipments arriving to ISS for the near future.

SPACE EXPLORATION – THE FUTURE

The nations engaged in the continued efforts in space exploration and continued habitation are incredible, to say the least. To date, we have reached a plateau in scientific research. It is time for a demonstrative change in how we conduct the future of space exploration.
The time has come to make this statement. Anti-gravity applications are in order.

“Please consider we are sending astronauts to accommodate conditions existing in space, not accommodating space for the astronauts. Please start adapting environments on our space vehicles to create a more earth-like environment for them. We must now invent the methods by which we can travel to the planets, and ultimately, the stars. Even before the upcoming Mars mission; if we do not, we are sentencing the colonizers with a good possibility of early death.”

Pioneers of every age of man have been travelers and explorers. Most met with doom until they achieved their goals. From the smallest of gains to the largest of them, there was no change until now. We must overcome the artificial gravity issue to add to the tools our explorers can use to maximize their success potential.

ADVANCEMENTS

Recent developments of improved rocketry by private concerns states its magnetic, plasma rocket engine (VASIMR) could transport astronauts to Mars in 39 days instead of 6 months, we are still faced with the same problem of longer missions to outer planets and asteroids. And, electrical power requirements are beyond what can be produced, at this time. This is why we should take the time to construct a craft with an earth-like gravity environment. Further comment on this is written below.

Artificial Gravity

Why has it not yet been invented and applied to date? Let’s take a look at some of the issues at hand. Of course, it is the overall expense of completing this project. Please read further to learn more.

Centripetal Force

One of the major problems here is the size of the craft. To create enough rotation to simulate a one gravity environment would require a habitat of over 300 feet so the craft would be huge. A smaller craft size would require a much more rapid rotation, which could actually be harder on astronauts than weightless environment because the ‘gravity’ differentials from head to toe would vary, greatly.

Here, rapidly spinning ‘rings’ would be incorporated to create this form of artificial gravity.

og: artificial
Courtesy Trade Science, this diagram shows the effects of artificial gravity of centripetal force where rotation around a central point.

Serious thought has been given to creating mini-centrifuges on the craft to simulate temporary reprieves from enduring weightless flight; however, the problems again arise of uneven gravity on different parts of the human body. So far, the ‘spinning beds’ are the best contrived and utilized. Astronauts spend over 20 percent of their time exercising to fight the effects of a weightless environment instead of using this for quality research in an earth-friendly environment! What a waste of time, energy and expense, isn’t it?

Centrifugal Force

Centrifugal Force is where artificial gravity is created from a central point. The occupants would traverse a floor that circles around the central point.

Thus, artificial gravity is created where the craft itself would spin.

Courtesy Chegg, this diagram shows artificial gravity from a central point where the floor is circular. It is known as centrifugal force.

The diagram above shows how centrifugal force works as artificial gravity.

Artificial Gravity From Direct Acceleration

Another form of artificial gravity may be formed due to direct craft acceleration.

og: artificial
Courtesy Chegg, this diagram shows the effects of artificial gravity due to acceleration.

In this case, a craft accelerating towards its destination would be utilized to create artificial gravity. As the craft approaches the destination, it would actually turn around to create deceleration. This would also create an artificial gravity environment for the occupants.

Economic Implications

The next major hurdle to overcome is the expense of lifting incredible amounts of material into orbit to create a craft that could be large enough to simulate an earth-like environment while travelling in orbit, to Mars, asteroids, or even other planets in our solar system. Of course, until we create a FTL (faster-than-light) or ‘warp/inter-dimensional’ forms of propulsion, travelling to other star systems is out of the question.

Now, here is my contention to this problematic expense issue. So what? It took the last 44 years creating a viable space station so why not take the time to create an artificial gravity environment for our astronauts?

If there is a time issue here where we are about to be smacked by a huge asteroid or something, then it would be a good time to either destroy it or leave. If not, then let’s take the time to do it right until we can create force fields, gravitational (artificial or otherwise) environments, and improved propulsion devices?

Electromagnetic Force

Here is where the term, ‘gravitational force’, not artificial force comes into play. This is my favorite theory, although, the more this writer studies it the more it ‘escapes’ me. Why not simulate the actual ‘earth-type’ model to create an earth-like, artificial environment in space?

Presently, work is underway to develop a form of electromagnetic propulsion known as EMP. It utilizes the Lorentz force. The concept is not new. It uses charged particles in a magnetic environment to create a ‘no waste’ form of propulsion. So far, the applications are not considered to create a strong enough of thrust to be significant. And, it takes a long time to get up to speed, as well as, decelerate.

Well, it seemed simple enough in the beginning where we live on a rotating earth, hurtling through space, tied into a complex structure with like electromagnetic and gravitational forces in our solar system that exist in a perfect balance, right? Well, not so fast…a number of people claim that a spinning earth should throw us off into space? The good news is that doesn’t happen.

Gravity And Magnetic Fields

There are complex magnetic fields induced by a very dense, hot metallic core inside earth. That field actually holds us on our planet where life exists, today. However, magnetism depends on the exact properties of conductive and ferrous materials to pull or push themselves apart. Here is the hard part to understand, for many: Gravity is very weak, in some ways! Where we feel the ‘weight of the world’ upon us is not really a weight, at all. Yet, in essence, it is an incredible force.

In fact, our bodies are pretty much ‘anti-gravity’ (bad term-more non-conductive) by nature, so we should not be affected, yet we are? It is because gravity and magnetism are totally different. Gravity depends on the pull of masses to each other. An example here is that we notice gravity by living on earth because the earth mass is so great. Our mass is so small it has no effect on anything else, much less the earth. Truly, we understand almost nothing about gravity, for now.

To date, gravitons and other sub-atomic particles are still theoretical. So, for now, they do not exist. We should create a simulated, artificial gravity environment with centripetal force. In sum, the time is now to begin, foster, and grow this project.

3-D PRINTING AND TELEPORTATION

Teleportation, 3-D printing; are you kidding? You mean it is real? Well, yes, to a certain degree, it is. It is the time to develop this form of material creation into practical application. Let us explore these developments.

3-D Printing

Briefly, 3-D printing, although in its infancy, is a reality. Tools and other devices have been constructed from basic materials. It is important this invention is developed, further. And, it would be good to have before we venture beyond earth orbit to the asteroids and other planets. So, having on board a 3-D printing device manufacturing tools and other materials from raw materials could be instrumental and less expensive to produce.

Photo-polymer resins are being developed to increase the ‘shelf-life’ of manufactured plastic components used over time. This author wanted to understand how this is developed. Fascinating.

Especially, this would be a necessity for longer voyages beyond our solar system. Let us hope we can utilize this unique invention to create more productive devices. This writer has contacted one of the companies that has produced this kind of printer and it is most incredible to learn the applications. The most formidable tasks are creating plastics that do not degrade in ultra-violet light over time.

Teleportation Experimentation

The first successful attempt at teleporting sub-atomic particles came from collaboration with scientists from the University of Innsbruk, Austria and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nist) US, in 2004. The latest achievement came in 2014 after a number of other successes.

This was a true milestone where the concept of using a quantum computer to move qubits in an entangled state from the sending device could actually recreate or transform the same atomic state to the receiving device! Remember, this, too is in its infancy a reality, as well.

Teleportation Success

These are, for now, photons or charged atoms (ions-electrons) have been successfully teleported. Advances in the area of quantum physics are escalating. The same goes for quantum mechanics. From research, to simply say, we are on the absolute threshold of discovery! It is estimated we could achieve the above goals in a few tens of years. Otherwise, don’t count your “chickens before they hatch” because you will be wasting your time.

After all, if the reader has made it this far, would one not consider that our future is most amazing? Further, with a bit more perception and forethought, it is just plain common sense. We will visit the stars, one day. And, we could become friends with other beings. At this time, we could only envisage this in a science fiction format. And, most certainly, there is evidence this has already occurred.

Teleportation On A Grander Scale

Consider, how convenient and efficient it would be to send astronauts to a planetary or asteroid surface with teleportation. Having a receiving and sending unit to teleport men and materiel would be more efficient. This would preclude expending fuel and resources with shuttle craft to transport the same. Teleportation of sub-atomic particles have succeeded. And, atoms are next on the list and could be just years away from teleportation.

According to Dr. Andrew Basiago, who ran for president of the United States in 2016, stated that we have engaged in teleportation since 1981. Dr. Basiago claims time travel is real. This is not a new concept. Some evidence, although speculative, has surfaced since the Germans had supposedly delved in such activity in WWII. Is it real or just speculation? What about TR-3B crafts and red mercury? Is that speculation, as well?

Have other entities influenced us? Are they from here on earth, another planet or time? Are they us from the future? Where is concrete evidence? Except from some books, pictures, and personal accounts, there is little to go on. What do you think? The reader is free to postulate and comment. We do live in the most incredible of times where each day new answers arise from the questions asked.

SUMMATION

In sum, the implications of the above technology and experiments underway is absolutely fascinating! So, let us look forward with anticipation to these monumental breakthroughs. Technology will forever improve and lift our future to heights hitherto unimaginable.

Truly, the world is our ‘oyster’ to enjoy. Future space travel to other worlds, mining of asteroids, and colonization of other planets is only a matter of time.

To me, it is all about the human condition, the betterment and emancipation of humanity. It is all we have. I believe, do you?

DEMPANIC-PANDEMIC-DAMPANIC

This dempanic has crossed genetic lines. This comes from a recent report at the New York, Bronx Zoo. Sad.

Dempanic? Of course. Pandemic; yes. Dampanic; absolutely. So, let us start with this disclaimer, please?

UNIVERSAL DIGEST is pleased to be a conduit for our contributing authors. We do not claim credit; we simply want to make it more available to the general public. And, the opinions of the authors are not necessarily the opinion or stance of this website. Further, none of the prescribed, advertisers, assigns, and any affiliates are part of this publication; nor will they be.

Thanks to good friends who send me information regarding my requests for accurate, objective, and honest reporting; it helps so much with the research at hand. Muriel Perkins, a good friend of many years who is a savvy news hound, has sent over the ‘smoking gun’. The COVID-19 virus is no accident. Further, the present coronavirus could not have occurred in nature. We write about this later in the article. Because, most of this article has been written, to date.

DEMPANIC CRISIS

This author has become weary of the political and news media rants, posts, publications, and social media irresponsibility! Truly, only a very few radio and television networks are responsible in reporting, accurately the true nature of the coronavirus outbreak. Only a few. But, the mainstream media continues to spew vitriol and total garbage to a human audience who just wants the facts. And, most people are not being fooled by this.

og: dempanic
This dempanic is messing with the paperwork.

Hence, the heading of this being a ‘dempanic’ is accurate in this writer’s perspective. It has gone from one being ashamed of their profession to justifying same. Despicable, to say the least. Political parties are constantly wrangling on who is telling the truth. Whether it is a Republican or Democratic stance; it is a stance, nonetheless.

Now, let’s view this a bit deeper, okay? Having been done with such fake news over recent years, dealing with this present pandemic is completely and utterly unique; in every sense of the word. So, please enjoy the next rants based on actual interviews. The protection of the innocent is ever present on one’s mind. And, God love them all.

PANDEMIC CRISIS

Presently, the COVID-19 crisis is still upon us. News reporting has not only been lack-luster; it has been pedantic and misleading, at best. It is like producing an icon of purpose in a stage of no light, at all. For those who read this, it is simply put; fear-mongering deceptions. People are being played and depending on their political views; this is quite damaging to our society.

Also, many huge corporations are playing our genuine and loving citizens for all they are worth. This is patently evil, in my humble opinion. Ideally, it would be wonderful to see this come to an end. However, it could be a pipe dream.

Over the past few months, many personal interviews were conducted. These included chats with persons from different walks of life, as well as, different generations. Indeed, there was an uncanny congruence and continuity in the responses received. We’ll cover this in the next segment.

DAMPANIC

As mentioned, let us cover the responses that were so consistent from interviewees. People interviewed were well-to-do, average income, and below-average income. Also, people interviewed ranged from teenagers to elderly.

Now, looking at whether the coronavirus outbreak is natural or artificial; respondents were almost 100% sure the virus is artificial. Next, almost all commented it was man-made. But, this writer contends the virus came from nature, but was recombined. An older term used is spliced, but we’ll see shortly that RNA strands were recombined with other existing bat coronaviruses.

Then, we covered whether or not news media was being transparent in reporting. In other words, were they being honest? Further, were they reporting without agendas or opinion based on facts? The resounding answers were no!

When asked about how good a job politicians were doing; it was split pretty much down party lines. This indicates how terribly divided our views are in the United States. Therefore, there is almost no common ground where people may discuss issues or compromise on the same.

Could it be that the COVID-19 outbreak created a new foundation for people to get along? Indeed, it is no in some cases, but it is also an incredible yes in others!

DEMPANIC RESPECT

While there has been a certain amount of fear resulting in people hoarding and trying to take advantage of the present pandemic; others have been working hard in understanding to help others. First of all, let us thank so much the front-line medical staff, nurses, doctors, and caregivers who work tirelessly to aid the ill. Next, let us thank law enforcement who must contend with criminal elements. These individuals seek to break the law and some of them have COVID-19. Finally, let us thank the military who protect our citizens, borders, and interests abroad.

og: dempanic
This dempanic shows the deplorable degradation of society from hoarding sources. Toilet paper? C’mon, man!

In the past month, people who are not in essential jobs have been asked to stay home. And, they have been asked to not leave unless they must obtain essential goods, like food and fuel. In short, this came about to help the medical community and hospitals not to be overrun with a non-sustainable number of cases. This has multiple benefits. First, there are enough medical supplies and ventilators available. Second, there are enough medical personnel to treat and help the infected individuals recover.

As mentioned before, this is a bad virus. At article’s end, we’ll learn more of the mechanics of the virus and its danger to human life.

CROSS-SPECIES VIRAL INFECTIONS

Recently, it was discovered that this virus can be transmitted from humans to animals. So, not only should hygiene be applied to how humans protect themselves, but it should be done the same when around animals. Because of the nature of this virus, social-distancing and facial covering must be utilized to protect animals, too. And, stay home.

LATEST RESEARCH RESULTS JUST IN!

Again, thanks to Muriel Perkins giving me the heads up of the latest research completed from well-known and reputable professionals; we can bring the viewers the ‘smoking gun’ information of how and where the latest COVID-19 outbreak occurred. Of course, the viewer should take the time to watch this 55-minute video, testimonials, and brief documentary summary, courtesy of The Epoch Times. This author found it to be spot on in its findings.

Touched on by previous Universal Digest articles on COVID-19, the short answer is this pandemic was caused by the release of a recombination of two bat coronaviruses. In other words, there was a recombination of the two different RNA genetic strands. Because of the nature of such a recombination, researchers demonstrably proved this could not occur in nature. Yes, it is not a natural virus. It is the combination of parts of two different viruses.

In sum, the Chinese Communist Party’s military arm had been experimenting on bio-warfare research and the darn thing was released. This author believes it was released inadvertently through improper work techniques. It was not released on purpose. So, there we are.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19

The real danger of the virus that has cause the present dempanic, or pandemic is multi-faceted. Of the three proteins found in this virus is the S-protein. It is otherwise known as the ‘spike-protein’. Simply, it fools the ACE-2 receptors in human lungs. The ACE-2 receptor thinks the cell is benign so it attaches to the spike-protein. Then, the virus enters the healthy cell membrane and attacks the nucleus and replaces the DNA there.

But, another interesting fact was found. Fully, 1/3 of the coronavirus cases were discovered to not have been near the Huanan Seafood market, not could they have been. Also, no bats were found there and none had been harvested anywhere near the market. Ultimately, researchers discovered this was a Chinese government cover up.

They were so hasty to cover up the outbreak they hoped the case discrepancies would be missed. Please, take the time to view the video by clicking the link above or here. The answers supplied are conclusive. This was no accident. It was most likely a terrible mishap. Yes, this is a mishap that has changed the world.

SUMMATION

There have been many disasters made over time. Lately, it seems human-made disasters have been able to climb the ladder of causing the most recent ones. Remember 3-Mile Island in the United States? How about the Chernobyl Incident that occurred in Russia? Most recently, we endured the meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan.

In the past, who is to say some of the viral outbreaks in the 20th century could have been from bio-warfare research?

There are those who have stated that Africa is a great place for experimentation. Of that, only speculation results.

What is interesting today is this: We live in an information age, now. We travel globally, daily. Communication is almost instantaneous. This is why trying to cover up or hide things, especially those that cause death and/or destruction of any degree is not missed. There is a global communication network that works 24/7. So, would it not be more prudent to be transparent and not devious?

GOOD AND BAD

Let us hope with the stall in the economies in the world, we don’t wait to long to get back to work and regular living. We do not want the cure of distancing to be worse than the incidence of this prevalent virus.

Keep the immune systems up and running!

No doubt, there are good forces working beneath the radar, as well as, those devious ones. It is a mute point on which forces most of us want to win?

Remember, this day will pass. We are about to return to normal business. Let’s do our parts to bring more peace, not war.
