An alternative explanation of frame-dragging observed in the Gravity Probe B experiment

The frame dragging reported by NASA's Gravity Probe B experiment is accurately predicted by General Relativity theory. However, it is just a different name for the Bradley Stellar Aberration, discovered by Bradley in 1728 and known for three centuries. It is a result of the sidereal Earth rotation of the ether. The Michelson-Morley experiment was done to study this effect, expecting to detect the sidereal Earth velocity. Instead, it detected a velocity that was 20 times smaller. The result is known as the non-null effect, or fringe shift, or not-null velocity. The extensive observations by Dayton Miller confirmed the effect. Consequently, the Einstein postulate regarding the speed of light must be considered an approximation only. These observations were ignored by the scientific community in favor of Einstein's assertion that the speed of light is independent of the mover and observer.

Ignoring the measured non-zero velocity and considering the postulate as fundamental were two serious errors in physics adopted at the beginning of the 20th century. These errors led to abandoning the ether concept - the fatal mistake of modern physics. This created many problems in theoretical physics that could have been avoided, the twin paradox being only one. A more important consequence is that many abstract theories ranging from particle physics to cosmology were created on the wrong basis. In fact, the non-null effect is a feature of the abandoned ether - the most important fundamental substance of the physical vacuum.

My BSM-Supergravitation Unified Theory proposes a physical model of the ether called the Cosmic Lattice that explains the non-zero effect of Michelson-Morley and other successful experiments. Further, it explains the frame drag and all relativistic effects in a classical way. Recently, we published an original lab experiment based on the concept that the ether (Cosmic Lattice) could be detected by measuring the ratio of the refractive index of two different optical media. The experiment, done here at York University, was able to detect the sidereal and orbital motion of the Earth. See the report on A Laboratory Experiment for Testing Space-Time Isotropy.

The ether not only exists, it is able to propagate waves different from ordinary EM waves with a velocity much greater than the speed of light. US Patent 6,025,810, Hyper-light-speed antenna, is consistent with this claim. The invention explains with great detail transmitting and receiving devices that can communicate with a velocity greater than the speed of light. The description is so detailed that the device could be built and tested by an ordinary engineer or technician. The patent claims not only the hyper-light velocity of the signal, but also that it passes through Faraday cage shielding. Obviously, this is a different type of wave propagated through the ether. Nicola Tesla first discovered such waves one hundred years ago. They are referenced now as longitudinal or scalar waves. The big obstacle to research in this field was the Einstein postulate imposed by modern physics. The search for extraterrestrial civilizations, for example, should not rely on EM waves with their speed limit, but on the hyper-light speed communication.

The invention described in the patent must be implemented cautiously since the emitted waves may have some adverse biological effects. The emitting direction is not explicitly mentioned in the patent but my conclusion is that it will be along the device axis. Also from the BSM-SG point of view, the emitted wave should have the form of a torus propagated with a velocity proportional to n x c, where c - speed of light and n - a small integer that depends on the magnetic field strength and the tuning. From my own research, I know that longitudinal waves can be shielded but in a way different from ordinary EM waves.
