A QUICK LOOK AT THE COMPETITORS!
RONALD L. MALLETT, PhD - University of Connecticut
Dr. Mallett is a theoretical physicist at UConn and is clearly the more lettered of the two men. He has had a number of papers published in scholarly journals and lectures at scientific conferences around the world. His time machine design is based on solutions from equations of Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. For his complete bio, follow this link.
BARNES, R&D Eng -
Marshall Barnes is a research and development engineer for the AET RaDAL investment group. While he has no degrees (just like Edison, Tesla, Marconi, Farnsworth, and the Wright Brothers didn't) he has over 30 years experience in the advanced concept areas of a number of fields, including audio production, analog and digital video special effect design and engineering, exotic weapons platform creation, optics, non-lethal weapons, technocogninetics, temporal mechanics, electromagnetic field theory, and the practical application of the extreme implications of quantum mechanics, to name just a few. He's a member of at least one open source innovation group and is also a member of the Philosophy of Time Society and Edutopia and a number of other educational and scientific organizations. His track record spells out the letters that are most important: G-E-N-I-U-S. He lectures at conferences as well, on a variety of topics, including creativity, advanced propulsion concepts and mind technologies useful for psychological stability of astronauts on interplanetary voyages. He's smarter than Stephen Hawking and proved it - by catching more of Hawking's mistakes than anyone else on Earth - including winning the bet over the Higgs Boson!
