The San Francisco Tesla Society
presents a free presentation featuring
Rob States, M.S., P.E.
"Gravity Drives & Time Travel"
Sunday, December 9, 2012 1 - 5 p.m. at theTechShop - San Francisco
Rob States will explain how various gravity drives work and compare their mode of operation. Although several of the more exotic well documented gravity drives have dissimilar design, they all seem to violate the same set of currently accepted principles of known physics. Understanding how these drives work may require a significant revision to our current understanding of physics.
Alternately, Rob will describe other gravity drives that do not violate any laws of known physics. These devices do not require exotic materials to build, just elbow grease and some engineering skill. Rob will describe the budget and logistics needed to take a gravity drive concept from the theoretical stage to a functioning vehicle for interstellar space flight. Join us as we also explore what time travel, hyperspace and the legendary Philadelphia experiment may have in common with gravity drives.
Rob States is a Mechanical Engineer with a Bachelors Degree from the University of Colorado (1975). He also holds a Master of Science Degree in Gas Dynamics from the University of Colorado (1976), and currently engineers tunnel ventilation systems for AECOM, a large civil engineering firm. Rob also has a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT (1981), where his thesis was on the vibration of rotating objects. Rob also has a Masters Degree in Management from MIT (1981) with a specialization in Finance and Management Information Systems. For the past 30 years, Rob has engineered exotic industrial equipment for industries as diverse as luxury yachts, microwave synthesizers, incinerators, and control systems.
