BSc in physics (York. 1991). PhD in ocean physics (Liverpool, 1995). Ocean & wave model scientist (Met Office, 1998-2008). Suggested new physics (2007). Lecturer (University of Plymouth, 2008-2023). Funded to develop new physics into a thruster by DARPA (2017-2023). Showed thrust. Now unemployed for the first time in 35 years. I have suggested, and published 26 peer reviewed papers, explaining inertial mass (quantised inertia/QI). The theory predicts galaxy rotation without dark matter, a clean way to generate electricity and a propellant-less quantum thruster. I received $1.3M from DARPA to test the latter and four labs so far have seen thrust. We need to enhance this thrust and develop clean energy & interstellar applications. Funding welcome 🙂
Mike McCullouch, in his presentation at the Space Workshop ’23, discusses how the theory of quantised inertia can revolutionize space travel. This theory proposes a new understanding of inertia and has been successfully tested with astronomical data. McCullouch suggests that it is possible to produce thrust from the quantum vacuum using capacitors, leading to potential applications in satellite propulsion, travel to Alpha Century, and travel to the Oort cloud. By combining quantum mechanics and relativity, McCullouch explains that an object accelerating to the right experiences new radiation, resulting in inertial mass. At low accelerations, the horizon moves back and the collapse of symmetrical horizons eliminates inertia. Capacitor experimentation has shown promising results in predicting thrust variation. McCullouch also highlights the potential applications of quantised inertia, including expedited trips to the Oort cloud and Proxima Centauri. However, further experimentation and enhancements are necessary to refine the theory and improve thrust generation. McCullouch’s research also suggests that rapid waves and interference could disrupt physical objects, and there is a question regarding the correct colors of the unreal radiation.
