NEW EXPERIENCES > THIS THEME SHOULD AIM TO REFLECT THE START OF AN EXCITING JOURNEY.
This piece has been inspired by a new major development in quantum propulsion technology. This discovery will allow mankind to travel at ultra speeds never achieved before and will allow man to travel far beyond its own solar system.
This technological advancement requires no fuel for this to be achieved. Instead the concept works on the principle that space is not a vacuum. Instead, it is filled with a roiling sea of particles and anti-matter particles that are created and then destroy themselves in a blink of an eye. This concept has sparked the beginning of an exciting journey for mankind.
My piece aims to encapsulate this awe-inspiring, celestial process. The composition derives from a process called the ‘Dynamic Casimir Effect’ – Were utilisation of a “moving mirror” cavity or two reflective flat plates would be held in close proximity and then manipulated in order to interact with quantum particles.
By moving the plates - made of silicon- energy is created out of nothing and a net force is created which would be used to push, pull or propel a spacecraft.
