The physicists are attempting to harness the power of Quantum Entanglement – a bizarre force which allows one particle to ‘talk’ to a mirror particle even if it is on the other side of the universe.

Quantum Entanglement is also believed to control gravity – and that interfering with, or switching-off, this entanglement could be the key to travelling mind-blowing distances in a fraction of a second.000

However, some fear interfering with gravity could lead to the kind of universal catastrophe thus far only seen in science fiction books.

Gravity has been seen as a basic force of the universe since Isaac Newton’s Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica in 1687 – but it’s causes are only now beginning to be understood.

Jeremy Rys, is the founder and CEO of Hover Brothers, a research team looking at building a real, working warp drive.

The team have built on top-secret work carried out by Boeing’s Phantom Works in the early part of the century which attempted to create anti-gravity.

But Mr Rys now believes advances in quantum understanding and his team’s revolutionary PHOENIX theory will make a practical Star Trek like warp drive a reality within 20 years.

Step one, he says, is to ‘float rocks.’

He said: “Right now in mainstream physics there is a massive revolution about to take place.

“Quantum entanglement somehow holds the key theory to quantum gravity and the physics community is about to discover how gravity really works.

Jack Sarfatti responds:

I am skeptical of the above article - although their basic idea based on ER = EPR is not crazy, I wonder about the details of how they intend to implement it. The “vertex” theory raises an alarm for me - I hope I am wrong and that they succeed of course, but I am not betting on it.
I would need to see their technical reports to see if these claims are credible. I first suggested the deep connection of gravity to entanglement ER = EPR in 1974 - admittedly in more primitive form compared to the much later AdS/CFT world hologram duality. I have been working on this same problem for a long time. My invited DARPA-NASA talk on this is here also see
