This book describes an exciting, but unfinished scientific adventure story It tells of the epic struggle by scientists to wrest the secrets from nature of how to control the force of electromagnetism and how to control aerodynamic forces Control of the force of gravity has yet to be achieved Analogies suggest where a breakthrough might be made Greenglow the search for gravity control follows the attempts mankind has made over the years to understand gravity as well as looking at recent experiments to control it The book is written by an engineer, who worked in the aerospace industry, and who persuaded BAE Systems to sponsor Project Greenglow, a small research programme aimed at investigating some ideas for controlling gravity Based on analogies in nature, the book provides a road map for scientists, engineers and the general public who want to know about gravity and our search to control it Discovering nature s secrets is an exciting, but unfinished story there is much we still don t know The book describes the quest by scientists to gain control of gravity and electromagnetism, the two long range forces of nature Faraday discovered the secret of electromagnetic control Newton began the search for gravity control, later continued by Einstein, but it eluded them One day the secret will be discovered either by careful experimentation or, as is often the case, by stumbling across it by chance In the future it is expected that gravity control will underpin a new method of propulsion and this book concludes with a look at some possible forms Greenglow is a fascinating read for any aerospace engineers, physicists, experimental research scientists, science journalists, science historians, futurologists, UFO enthusiasts, Star Trekkies and general public interested in the breakthrough in understanding of how to control gravity

  1. R J Musgrave R J Musgrave says:

    This is a fascinating account of the serious attempts and frustrations there have been to search for a way to control gravity a holy grail which has so far eluded researchers I bought the book through from The Wordery who give consistently excellent and reliable service both through and if you shop directly from them.

    it arrived yesterday thought it may have been lost read the preface this morning ,great to read our development of understanding of gravity up to this point saw the author Ronald Evans ,in a doco on gravity ,after i ordered the book

    I d deferred reviewing this until I finished it, but I haven t been able to yet, finding it very hard to pick up For me the tech level is wrong I wanted to know about project Greenglow, not get a grounding in physics I feel the exposition in physics needs to be quicker for people who are going to bother to read it at all, and shorter for the others Maybe the second half of the book is better

    Contrary to the negative review posted above, this book is not at all about perpetual motion or crackpot science It s in fact a very detailed history of the research into and discoveries made in the field of sub atomic physics, the believed realm of the source of gravity itself It charts breakthroughs over centuries by science s greatest minds, including Newton, Einstein and Schr dinger, slowly but surely uncovering the secrets of not just the components of sub atomic structures but the enigmatic forces holding them together The book includes a lot of mathematical explanations, but the detailed accounts between provide interesting reading for the pop science enthusiast, indeed offering than the usual layman s level of detail than your average pop science book It gives a real glimpse into the scientific mind at work, from a genuine and highly respected source I suggest that would be reviewers actually read the book before judging it by it s cover.

    I bought this book after having ready a review in Fortean Times and I agree with the rating given there 8 out of 10 4 out of 5.There are a lot of equations most of which I skipped over and some of the writing is a bit technical but it is quite a tricky subject to cover It was worth having the history of some physical properties to appreciate how we got to where we are.Having read a few books about flying saucers, I appreciate that the author does not make the mistake of making some wild supposition, then treating it as true and basing the rest of the book on it.I bought the book as an e book print might have been better, easier to make note and flip back to previous chapters.Overall, a good book about an interesting subject It might be the heads up on a new energy source.

    A very detailed book with a good science grounding that makes it easy for anyone with a basic technical mind to understand.

    A book designed for the technically qualified and technically interested audience.

    Defining a book like Greenglow and the search for gravity control is not at all simple I would go so far as to say that, by gum, it s complicated It weaves theoretical physics, modern research and hypothetical experiments relating to gravity, magnetism and fluid dynamics in an entertaining web, and intersperses the subject matter with interesting historical anecdotes my fact of the day for several days was the origin of 007 Who knew The book appears to have been written for people with a good grounding, or a strong interest, in science, and consequently covers complex theories and calculations Indeed, I very much doubt my GCSE C in maths was what the author had in mind of his readership That being said, although I struggled to understand the majority of the maths aspects, I did persevere through some of them and also found that avoiding them did not affect my enjoyment of the book I would highly recommend that anyone who immediately baulks at the sight of an equation like myself should continue with the text, since the analogies that pepper the chapters do a wonderful job of clarifying the complexities.Throughout the chapters I was regularly struck by the incredible understanding we have on the world of physics, particularly since a great number of the theories detailed were initially predicted and modelled within the preceding centuries, highlighting to me just how impressive the works of the gentleman scientists of the 19th and 20th centuries really were, particularly in the absence of computers.As one of the previous reviewers has pointed out excessively in parts some of the described theories will no doubt be disproved but, as is the nature of a theory, one can never be proven, at best only accepted The book does not hide from incorrect theories, but highlights their existence and importance to the discussion and history of the topic From my own experience of research, it should be remembered that everything is hypothetical until it is tested and surprising results can often be found when least expected, even from subjects thought to be completely understood For example, I was at university when Buckminsterfullerine was discovered after being dismissed as an experimental artefact for decades This subject area now looks to be leading a Renaissance in carbon chemistry, with whole new industries resulting from it In instances such as this the economic and social benefits are inestimable Consequently all research should be deemed important, whether right or wrong, whether flying against common opinion or acceding to it All viewpoints are valid until disproved, and in either case can lead to new theories, explanations and discoveries.At several points in the book I was considering my own what would happen if scenarios If I, with my non physics brain, is now sufficiently enthused to look into other books on the subject matter, I can only imagine the effect this may have on people with ability and understanding The general mantra of the book appears to be to reach for the stars , whether this be literally or figuratively, and I think that many readers, whether they be student, scientist or interested amateur, will be inspired to do so.

    Mit Project Greenglow hat man in der UK ein ernstes Projekt angefangen ein Antischwerekraft Flugzeug zu entwickeln Das h rt sich nach einer Verschw rungstheorie an, aber das gab es wirklich Der Leiter des Projekts beschreibt in dieses Buch was da genau alles gemacht und untersucht w rde.Spoiler AlarmDas Projekt brachte nichts zustande was auch nur in de n he kam von ein Antischwerekraft Flugzeug, es war ein voller Misserfolg So ist das nun einmal.

    Written by a scientist for other scientists to read A ripping yarn yawn Definitely a book at bedtime Happy reading.

  11. Larry R. Larry R. says:

    Very useful and informative Essential library addition Highly recommended Interesting historical background and personal perspective Fascinating description of electromagnetism and gravitomagnetism duality Exciting speculation on plausible future technology.

  12. Quark Master Quark Master says:

    It has one interesting chapter or maybe also parts of others I am looking for breakthrough physics for flight in and beyond the atmosphere Others might take an interest in other areas of the book coverring some history of the projects that are mentionned in the book.

    Great piece of ufo related history

  14. Roger Robot Roger Robot says:

    A smart and enjoyable history of gravity and our attempts to understand it Includes in depth explorations of possible parallels between gravity and the other forces of nature looking for new avenues of experimentation A bit of heavy mathematics will be daunting for some, but very useful for those who can use it in their own explorations.
