Universal Propulsion Harnessing the Global Anisotropy of the Physical Space

A simple electro-mechanical device is shown to harness the global anisotropy of the physical space in order to generate a traction force having an universal character because it doesn’t involve the exchange of momentum either with any contact surface or conventional medium such as water or air, or any ordinary ejected substance such as exhaust gases or ionized particles, but with the physical space meant as a physical object filled generally with “cold” and locally with “warm” dark matter. The new force of nature investigated in this article is predicted by the non-gauge cosmological physical theory of “byuon”. This theory is based upon very few basic axioms, among which the marginal global anisotropy of the physical space caused by the existence of a cosmological vector potential Ag having coordinates in the second equatorial coordinate system as follows: right ascension α=300°±10°, declination δ=36°±10°. The new predicted force was experimentally studied during about 30 years as well as was revealed as the primary cause of changes in the decay rate of radioactive elements and for a wide variety of astrophysical and geophysical phenomena. The new force is as well predicted to be generally anisotropic, repulsive, non-local and non-linear; its existence is further proved in this article as well as its exploitability to move objects in any medium is demonstrated by means of few prototypes of the new concept thruster. Results collected during 2012-2013 do suggest that values of specific power as low as 330 W/N can be practical, i.e. about 40 times smaller than the best corresponding figures of electric propulsion thrusters used to move satellites and spacecrafts, suggesting the possibility of important developments for the propulsion of space vehicles.
