Aeronautical and Space Sciences
Space is the last great frontier of human endeavor, which we have only begun to explore. Our sun (and solar system, including earth) is a star on the outer edges of the Milky Way Galaxy, which itself is composed of billions of stars. And the Milky Way Galaxy is only one of billions of other galaxies with just as many stars, most of which probably have planets, which are slowly being discovered, but can’t be seen with our limited technology, because they are so small and far away.
FRIM assumes on the basis of probability alone that humans are not the only intelligent beings in the universe, and that there are undoubtedly intelligent extraterrestrial beings (IETBs) in other civilizations on planets elsewhere in the universe. Moreover, some of these civilizations are probably far more technologically advanced than humans, have probably developed advanced methods of interstellar propulsion and travel, and may have visited earth, recently, or in the distant past.
With these assumptions in mind, FRIM would like to request research and/or development proposals for funding consideration in the following specific areas:
- Propulsion, thrust, energy drive, or spatial drive methods, which would enable interstellar travel, including, but not limited to the following:
- Energy and power systems using zero point energy, vacuum energy, torsion fields, or other new energy sources that do not require bringing fuel with the travelling space vehicle;
- Antigravity technology;
- Space warp drive, worm hole, and related technologies;
- Time travel technology;
- Acquisition, digitization, and preservation of the literature related to the above assumptions and subjects;
- Any other highly innovative or transformative projects related to the above;
Please note that we are decidedly not interested in supporting projects attempting to prove to mainstream academia, politicians, government agencies, or anyone else either the existence of ETBs or their visitations to earth. As noted above, we assume this to be true, and are moving beyond that to develop the technology that could be used for space exploration and interstellar travel by humans.
