Houston (USA) – Human voyages to the outer solar system and beyond – even to our direct solar neighbors – depend on us humans one day discovering ways to move through space faster, much faster than we can currently imagine. For many years, Dr. Harold G “Sonny” White from the Limitless Space Institute (LSI), among other things in cooperation with NASA, developed revolutionary and from today’s perspective exotic propulsion systems, including primarily the possibility of warp space flight. Now White has summarized and visualized his vision in a clear information video.

“Heaven calls us. If we don’t destroy ourselves, one day we will go to the stars.” With this quote from astrophysicist and SETI pioneer Carl Sagan, White begins his self-annotated video entitled “Go Incredibly Fast.”

White is convinced that one day – and probably sooner than many can currently imagine – we will also live on other worlds: on the moon, on Mars and in the space in between. “Then it will be as it has always been: our children will look beyond these new horizons and have a desire to push those boundaries too and explore whatever lies beyond.”

Beyond Mars, the distances between the celestial bodies, let alone to our nearest neighboring system Alpha Centauri, become unimaginably large. “If we’re ever going to bridge that distance between the stars, we have to learn to travel fast,” White explains. One possibility for this lies in spaceships powered by nuclear fission. “But even such a nuclear-powered spaceship would need hundreds of generations to travel to our nearest star, Proxima Centauri.” Using animations, the scientist then illustrates that a trip in such a spaceship from Earth to Saturn takes two years would. Another 2,093 years to Proxima Centauri. “So we need to be able to travel faster.”

The next option would be a spacecraft powered by nuclear fusion. With this drive, a starship could be propelled to five percent of the speed of light. It would then only take 6 months to reach Saturn, but it would still take 102 years to reach Proxima C. “But if we really want to travel interstellar distances in less than our lifetime, we need to be able to travel incredibly fast.”

This is where White’s true and personal field of research comes in: “The universe itself has already shown us that this is possible by changing the scale of space itself. And right now we are working precisely to expand our understanding of physics to understand how exactly that can be achieved.”

“If we can construct a spacecraft that narrows the space in front of the ship and expands the space behind, such a ship could cover incredible distances faster than the speed of light.” Such a ship would pass the orbit of Saturn and Proxima in just a few minutes Reach Centauri in less than six months.

“From here, there will then be no restrictions on where we could travel,” White said, concluding, “Perhaps one day humanity will look into an extraterrestrial night sky and strive to find a faint yellow dot – ours Sun and our homeland. Then, for the first time, as we look back at ourselves, we know we are not alone in the universe.”
