I am presenting the paper “Empirical Evidence Suggest A Need For A Different Gravitational Theory” at the DARPA sponsored, 100 Year Starship Study 2013 Conference, in Houston, TX, this weekend.
This presentation is based on one with the same title, at the American Physical Society (APS) April 2013 Conference, in Denver, CO. A complete written paper was published in the Journal of Modern Physics:
Title: New Evidence, Conditions, Instruments Experiments for Gravitational Theories

The 100YSS’s abstract is:
Abstract: This paper presents some recent finding in alternative gravitational hypotheses. Using gamma-ray burst Nemiroff  showed that quantum foam could not exists. Solomon  showed that gravitational acceleration is not associated with gravitating mass, and equivalent to not knowing the photon source properties to know its frequency; that gravitational acceleration g is determined by τ the change in time dilation over a specific height multiplied by c2 or g=τc2. Force is expressed as a Non Inertia (Ni) Field and not by the exchange of virtual particles as is required by quantum & string theories. Therefore, a key requirement for interplanetary & interstellar travel, a propulsion equation that facilitates engine designs that do not expel mass.
This paper examines 12 inconsistencies in contemporary physical theories that manifest from empirical data, to provide insights on how physical theories will change to eliminate these inconsistencies. Exotic matter, expanding strings, a moving wave function and even a fixed spacetime continuum generate inconsistencies in physics. Further, current physical theories do not explain how particle probabilities are implemented in Nature. This paper proposes alternative axioms for spacetime and particles that would be consistent with the Special Theory of Relativity. Empirical data is used to propose two new instruments, the Gravity Wave Telescope and Near Field Gravity Probe.
Unlike current hypotheses on warp drives, that require enormous quantities of matter, equivalent to carrying a planet to move a rocket, resolving these 12 inconsistencies led to the concept of subspace that is probabilistic, and the potential to manipulate subspace rather than spacetime to ‘translocate’ starships across vast distances.
