From the New York Times bestselling writer of Kill Decision and Daemon comes the breathtaking new novel by “the real successor to the overdue Michael Crichton” (SF Site)…
Physicist Jon Grady and his crew have chanced on a tool which may mirror gravity—a triumph that might revolutionize the sphere of physics and alter the longer term. yet rather than acclaim, Grady’s lab is locked down by way of a covert association often called the Bureau of know-how Control.
The bureau’s challenge: suppress the reality of surprising technological development and stop the social upheaval it's going to set off. as the destiny is already the following. And it’s rewards are just for a choose few.
When Grady refuses to hitch the BTC, he’s thrown right into a nightmarish high-tech legal housing different doomed insurgent intellects. Now, because the in basic terms wish to usher humanity out of its man made darkish age, Grady and his fellow prisoners needs to attempt to disclose the secrets and techniques of an incredible enemy—one that wields a technological virtue part a century within the making.

He screwed the cylinder again within the substantial meeting. “Each particle of helium-4 is a boson, through advantage of its 0 spin. on the lambda element, its quantum results turn into obvious on a macroscopic scale—meaning person atoms aren't any longer correct in the liquid. Superfluid vacuum conception is an technique in theoretical physics the place space-time itself is considered as a superfluid. The fluid of fact. ” Kulkarni frowned. “Superfluid vacuum conception? Why . . . What are you attempting to do the following, Mr. Grady? ” “We’re trying to mirror gravitational waves, health care professional Kulkarni. ” Kulkarni was once momentarily speechless. He grew to become to Alcot. “Is he critical, Bert? and also you agreed to this? ” Alcot shrugged. “They say it’s vital to stick lively in retirement. ” Kulkarni grew to become again to Grady. “What in the world made you think that this was once possible? ” “Because i will see it here. ” Grady pressed a finger opposed to his head. Kulkarni simply stared. Grady held up a hand. “All correct, you’re skeptical. reasonable sufficient. ” He gestured to the tower. “A superfluid flows with no friction. And superconductors let electrons to circulate with out resistance. What we did was once droop a graphene coil inside of a superfluid. ” “Why graphene? ” “It’s a superconducting movie. Replicates electrons relocating via a near-perfect vacuum. Isolates debris from interference. Graphene additionally indicates unique results lower than definite stipulations. ” “I’m nonetheless now not seeing how this pertains to your target, Mr. Grady. ” “Right. i wished a charged superconducting sheet. The quantum mechanical nonlocalizability of the negatively charged Cooper pairs, protected against the localizing impact of decoherence by way of an strength hole, reasons the pairs to suffer nongeodesic movement within the presence of a gravitational wave. ” Marrano threw up his fingers. “I advised you, Professor, this man is simply stringing phrases jointly at random. ” Kulkarni held up a reassuring hand to Marrano and centred again on Grady. “Go on. ” Grady shrugged. “The surrounding non-superconducting ionic lattice is localized and so executes geodesic movement, relocating in addition to space-time, whereas the Cooper pairs execute non-geodesic motion—thereby accelerating relative to space-time. the various motions result in a separation of cost. That cost separation reasons the graphene to develop into electrically polarized, producing a restoring Coulomb strength. The again motion of the Coulomb strength at the Cooper pairs magnifies the mass supercurrents generated by way of the wave—producing a mirrored image. ” Kulkarni grimaced. “Mr. Grady, if this was once so, why do Bose-Einstein condensates persist with geodesics? i will be able to drop them in a vacuum chamber, they usually fall similar to Galileo’s rock. ” Grady grabbed a bit of paper from a desk and began making complex folds as he talked. “Yes, however the deBroglie wavelength of the BEC is at the order of a millimeter, while the gravity box wavelength is successfully infinite—which ability gravity can stream it round. If the de Broglie wavelength could be made longer than the gravity wavelength, we will be able to in precept isolate the BEC from the gravity wave.
