Why am I looking for Zefram Cochrane on tattoo Tuesday?January 13, 2015
Shades of Star Trek First Contact, an Omaha man is fiddling around in his garage working on warp fields. This story from Dave Reneke.
David Pares is maybe not how you’d imagine a scientist trying to prove the existence of warp fields (and then harness them), but he is the one who seems to be trying the hardest. Its science fiction finally coming true.
Armed with all the money and free time he possesses, Pares has been tirelessly exploring what some people have dismissed as a pointless endeavor. But a lack of funding or scientific support won’t stop him. While NASA’s Harold “Sonny” White is exploring warp bubbles in a more theoretical way, Pares is taking a more hands-on approach.
He’s toiling over a Faraday cage and constructing a V-shaped device made up of three panels with fractal arrays that he believes can compress the very fabric of space. Pares does so at the headquarters for Space Warp Dynamics, aka his garage.
Pares contends that warp bubbles occur naturally all of the time right here on earth. Through his work he is attempted to test that theory.
That’s how the Wright Brothers did it.
And the tattoo, because it is Tuesday.
