Continuing my discussion of the proposal by Dr. Dan Brasoveanu and Dr. Constantin Sandu, the authors visualize building a craft using a series of panels constructed of parallel reflective plates spaced about half a wavelength apart. If microwave energy were to be used, for example, as the radiation source then the plates would have to be spaced apart on the order of centimeters. A powerful source of electromagnetic energy would be directed into these panels and as the photons bounce off of the surfaces, they release gravitational waves (gravitons) normal to the surfaces. This gravitational field would act in both normal directions. Those acting inward would not only propel the “plates” but also the entire craft and occupants. By constructing a craft having a hull composed of many reflective plates and sequencing their activation, it would be possible to vector the force in the desired direction of motion. The energy source to create the EM energy is left up to the reader.
As the photons bounce between the plates and give up some of their energy to gravitons, their wavelength would increase and the efficiency of the process would decrease. This would result in EM energy being radiated from the craft in the form of infrared and perhaps some visible light. Thus, as the craft is hovering, it might radiate in the infrared spectrum. If the craft is accelerating or moving against a resistance such as air or gravity, it would radiate more energy at other wavelengths. The craft might well be seen to change color and intensity as it goes from hovering to accelerating. It would be expected that the craft would leak small amounts of UV, x-rays, or even gamma rays which could be lethal for anyone near the craft for an extended period of time.
