We welcomed Dr. John Brandenburg back to the program to discuss his new book, "Beyond Einstein's Unified Field: Gravity & Electro-Magnetism Redefined." I urge you read his paper published in the Journal of Cosmology. "A Derivation of the Newton Gravitation Constant and the Proton Mass From The GEM Unification Theory of Baryo-Genesis" at http://journalofcosmology.com/JoC17pdfs/brandenburg2.pdf. Dr. Brandenburg & I have been friends for a very long time & our discussions are informal, sometimes meandering, & always great fun. At times this discussion was heavy into the physic so do bear with us. In segment one, Dr. Brandenburg said that the GEM theory was a "theory of most stuff." He referred to the Gravitational Constant & the Planck Scale as well as the Middle Scale throughout the discussion. He provided the groundwork relating to Einstein and quantum mechanics, hidden dimensions, string theory, the 5th dimension, electro-magnetism & gravity theory. He also referenced many times over the Kaluza-Klein theory & work by Sakharov. An early question asked our guest to explain why there were different intensities of gravity on different planets. Dr. Brandenburg talked about Big G, all matter being electromagnetic at the molecular level & ratios (with Earth) used to predict the surface gravity of a planet made of rock. In our second segment, Dr. Brandenburg went into more detail about his GEM theory which is also referred to as the Grandis et Medianis theory. The Big Bang was discussed as well as what happened in the second before the Big Bang. He also talked about string theory & its relationship to the GEM Theory. A listener asked about the recent faster than light neutrino experiments. The experiment named OPERA was very simple & basic & most interesting. In discussing this experiment & its results, he introduced us to tachyons which prompted a call from listener John in Atlanta & they spent some time discussing the physics of the GEM theory & what it might mean for propulsion. To simplify this review, we now move forward to the need for portable fusion power & using gravity modification for space transportation. While optimistic for gravity modification, Dr. Brandenburg was blunt in saying that without portable nuclear power, even with gravity modification, we would not leave the atmosphere & we would continue using big chemical rockets. Don't miss this discussion. We talked more about string theory & dimensions & then a listener asked about parallel dimensions. Dr. Brandenburg had much to say on this topic as well. Near the end of our two hour discussion, I asked our guest about his next book & this opened up a different discussion line. Dr. Brandenburg is going to write about science, religion, the Middle East, Israel, ancient history, Greece, the Roman Empire & metaphysics before physics! Look for him to be a guest on the show about this one. We ended our show talking about thorium, thorium reactors, why thorium cannot be used for weapons, & natural nuclear events in Africa & on Mars which he discussed in detail when he was last on The Space Show.
