My idea for faster than light travel engine....
I don't have any higher schooling degrees, though I have studied sources of information, a lot of here, and there, and I have kinda figured a " Magna-Flux Drive ", using two separate field windings, A standard winding for well under Light speed travel, and a stretched tapper winding, to cause a " Forward shift field " acceleration effect.... remembering all of the engine components are " Ferrous metals ", no copper, or aluminum wire, a low carbon Iron / Steel wire used in the winding, should lower the field transfer efficiency loss inherent in transformer technology, the engine core should be driven with multi-field channeling, frequencies to be determined by experimentation, I have not started this project as of yet, I have been watching consumer available parts, and so far nothing high enough in fq Hz to get the job done, when parts become available the drive control should be as series of Voltage Controlled Oscillators, setup in parallel, each VCO should be stepped by a Phase Locked Loop, or PLL again parts problem with the right PLL's for the job.... that is where I'm at now.
The Photon - Ion - S.C.M. engine might at best get almost to light speed, but I'm not sure how close it would miss, the energy used I'm guessing more than double the Magna-Flux engine, with a lot more heat.
