The Controlled Refractive Index Warp Drive

Authors: Todd J. Desiato

When a space-time warp bubble is moving at velocity (i.e. v > c), Doppler shifted photons with energy tending to infinity, approach from the direction of motion. Event horizons form on the leading and trailing walls of the bubble. It is demonstrated herein that these phenomena mathematically arise from the application of shift-only space-time solutions; derived retrospectively from the geometrical interpretation of General Relativity. Moreover, it shall be demonstrated that these phenomena do not manifest in a properly formulated Polarizable Vacuum warp drive solution, IFF the refractive index within the space-time bubble is precisely controlled. This formalism is consistent within the analog gravity framework of the Polarizable Vacuum Model, representing a variable speed of light interpretation of General Relativity.
