At 88, Bertelsen still works part-time at a radiology clinic. This is the doctor in 2005.
I too have been working on such things, but only in the computer using solidworks CAD to create rough drawings for possible future development of such things as a practical small fusion power plant that is strikingly similar to the one developed by Philo T. Farnsworth, who developed the modern CRT television technology system of creating images on a phospher coated glass plate. Who also had a hand in the infamous Philedelphia experiment along with a number of scientists of the day including Einstein. The fusion plant I designed is to be used for an affordable home power generation unit so than the average home owner could buy one for their home and be truly energy independant from the commercial power grid and its vulnerabilities to storms, solar flare material causing very massive voltage and current spikes in high voltage power lines. It could also be developed further into a mass production transmutation machine for converting lighter elements into heavier ones. Possibly even to creating the super heavy very stable elements 113, 114, and 115 which have very unique quantum gravitational properties that we would find very useful I believe because of their gravitational resonance characteristics with the Planck length of scale and one dimensional strings of vacuum energy or neutrino properties. It is possible I think to cause the inducement of an increased quantum gravitational localized field strength just above a new innovative space craft for flight lift technology though needing another method to get off the ground because of the inverse square law to get further away from the mass of the Earth or other mass in space. This would work because of the unique nature of the fabric of space and the force of quantum mechanical gravity at the Planck scale of length. It is this literally unexplored reality that allows neutrinos to oscilate around the three or more "flavors" of neutrinos because they are so close in mass to the quantum vacuum average mass/energy fluctuations we call background radiation, the cause of the uncertainty principle as we understand it today. Being able to induce quantum gravity would allow us to build real "Star Gates" with real dialing in destination by creating artificial wormholes through which to pass through or build space craft to carry its own wormhole inducement machinery for creating a "traveling finite length" short wormhole in the path or vector you wanted the craft to go. The so-called "Warp Drive" of Star Trek that twists one dimensional strings to express the hidden collapsed dimensions and the forces and interactions with each other and the three forces we are now most familiar with, the electric, magnetic and gravitic lines of force that we use every day in communications all the time now that the technology is commonplace in our cell phones, television, computers etc. I predicted the discovery of massive black holes in the centers of galaxies including our own years ago based upon the observed gamma ray bursts happening in the trillions all over the sky. Black holes would all be pulled towards each other towards the centers of localized mass of all star clusters and merge there into really massive black holes. It is also possible for other forms of technology for "jet packs" to be built using smaller thruster units than those ducted fans. I have a design for a personal vehicle that uses ducted fans like those but larger in diameter for a vehicle that could carry a small number of passengers and cargo, just lke the personal car on the ground, and be all electric and therefore be non polluting and not adding to global warming like that "jet pack" in the current issue of Pop Sci.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
