Mr. Smith was a philanthropist who lived in Philadelphia that wanted to change the world and after speaking with Dr. Andrews, he thinks he found a way. Dr. Andrews has a Doctorate in Physics and Nuclear Engineering and has been inventing things since childhood and he dreams up new inventions daily. Dr. Andrews was looking for an investor to sponsor his research in to his gateway between Earth’s evolutions. Mr. Smith is looking to have him invent more inventions than just the Evolution Gateway that he half believed would work.
Dr. Andrews has collected a team of five scientists from different fields of the sciences to help him with his ideas for inventions. It has been a year since the Lab was started in Philadelphia, and the five scientists have their own teams that do work together. Most of the team leaders have worked with Dr. Andrews or with each other before.
The teams have created inventions that have been patent and sold by the investors. John Smith replies to every report with a letter of thanks and requests witch inventions he would like to see more work done. The investors has requested weekly reports and has stayed mostly in the shadows until receiving this week’s report.
This week’s report tells about the Gateways first successful test that was halted after detecting intelligent life. Mr. Smith was persuaded to pay for Dr. Andrews Lab by the promised inventions. An invention that he thought was too unbelievable until Dr. Andrews showed him the science behind it.
Mr. Smith understood more of the sciences behind the research than Dr. Andrews expected, and he was very interested in seeing the gateway accomplished. Mr. Smith was happy with the inventions over the past year. He didn’t need to make much of an argument to the scientists not to make one invention public. This week’s report got him excited, and he did make the request, again, to keep it secret.
The Evolution Gateway seemed like Science Fiction to Mr. Smith, but he could see the unlimited benefits. The E-Gate would open gateways threw the time dimension to other Earths that evolved differently. The one criterion that would close the gate was the finding of intelligent life. Mr. Smith did not want to have any unneeded interactions.
Mr. Smith gasped as he read this report, but was happy that they stopped the test, but since this test worked, the next test was later that day. The first test was taken with one thousand million Evolutions away that still found intelligent life. The second test took 5KMEs and found a crater.
The Evolution-Gate opens gate ways threw time and dimensions, but on the other side of this gate the time is effectively the same, but in a different dimension. There are millions of millions of dimensions with worlds that evolved differently than our own. They didn’t want to get too far from our Earth, because there needed to have been life. The idea was to find unrequired Oil and other minerals and precious metals.
Mr. Smith new that there was plenty of oil on this Earth, but there were laws that had been made to stop drilling for the oil. He dreamt of finding an Earth with no more life but for rodents, insects, and plant life. If the new earth had life that meant that, it is likely to have oil. Mr. Smith could use the oil immediately, because he has purchase rundown refineries and updated the machinery. The second test of the E-Gate found no life for the surrounding one hundred miles, but the air had enough oxygen to support larger mammals.
After the arm of the first rover tested the air and that there was a ground to walk on, the rover went through. With the mini nuclear power pack, the rovers could explore freely over the new Earth. Along with the rover was a Surveyor with a G-Drive “Gravity Drive” that let it rise threw the atmosphere. This “Air Surveyor” flew high and with magnifying cameras did not only test the air but sent images of the surrounding grounds.
The images that were returned to the rover were of a massive crater that showed trees to the south and ice to the north. While the Air Surveyor was taking its pictures, the rover drilled and found oil less than a meter deep. The Air Surveyor was sent south/west in search for intelligent life. Over the mound to the west were trees and to the south was water, but there were more trees south/west.
The Air Surveyor was sent as far as the west coast and Air Surveyor2 was sent from the rover to the south to search for intelligent life. The rover had a satellite dish to search for any radio waves. After this rover found oil they sent a second rover with two AIR Surveyors through the gate to search for more oil. The second rover had radar to search the pool of oil.
The pool of oil was as far east as the coast and released more oil into the ocean than was spilled on our Earth. The it was over one hundred miles wide. Luckily, the pool got narrower and deeper as it reached to the east. By the time, Mr. Smith had received this report the team of scientists have found the best place to drill.
The team was excited about this new Earth and plans for a small city were being developed. Mr. Smith replied to this report with great eagerness to get working on the drill and the encampment. He was a part owner of a number of companies that he could use to help with this project. Mr. Smith halted all other projects except for one other that was almost as unbelievable.
The invention that he suggested to keep secret was the Gravity Drive. This G-Drive could pull and push objects through the air using gravity. The other project that he didn’t want halted was using this G-Drive to travel to the Moon and to Mars. The tests to the Moon have been done and the construction of a human habitat has been started.
One of the companies that Mr. Smith owns a part of did steel framing. He had warehouses filled with steel frames that have carbon jelled walls to protect the scientists from Solar Radiation. The scientists are using Nano Robotics and rovers to construct a Moon Dome. The scientists designed Mini-Domes for the scientific exploration that will be done on the Moon.
Mr. Smith wanted to have a massive hotel dome, because with the Gravity Drive, it would be more profitable to have a vacation spot on the Moon. The project starts with plans of a port way to be constructed along with two mini-domes for further study of the moon. The port way would have rooms’ restaurants and parks for vacationers. The Gravity Drive was still kept secret, so the scientists wondered when Mr. Smith was to go public with the vacation spot on the Moon.
The five teams of scientists had specific projects to be working on until now. Now they are all taking part in the projects, the E-Gate and the construction of the drill and encampment. The second project is the use of the G-Drive to the Moon and the construction of the Moon Dome. The scientists were looking in to how weightlessness and the low gravity of the Moon will affect the human body.
A team recommended having vibrating exercise machines to be in every bedroom to be used for five minutes every morning to keep the human body fit. They thought the best way was to drug the passenger and strapped down for the trip to the Moon that will take longer than a trip to Mars. The trip to Mars uses the Suns gravity to reach light speed around the Sun.
The first test to use the Suns gravity to reach light speeds was a success with the carbon shielding protecting the satellite from solar radiation. This satellite did need to avoid some space junk after slowing down from the sun. A scientist did recommend just traveling at such speeds close to the sun where no other space junk would be, because it was too hot.
They did have sensors on this satellite to detect any space junk it needed to avoid, but not at light speeds. They did find a clear path to the sun, but couldn’t calculate a path after the light speed burn. The next tests helped them to calculate a path to Mars that would take half the time than it took to get to the Moon.
The scientists were ready to start the project to Mars. A team had the idea of starting an exploration of what was below the surface of Mars. A scientist on this team was pushing the idea of man on Mars, but because of the advances in robotics, the scientists knew it wasn’t needed. The scientist feared that the closest he would get to Mars would be inside a suit that controlled a robot on Mars.
The team of scientists that were working on the shuttle to the moon added a second G-Drive to stabilize the gravity on the shuttle. The scientists had the idea that a stabile gravity on the shuttle with it moving at light speed it could have human passengers. They did consider the fact that time would slow down on any craft moving at light speeds, so they will need a drug to compensate the effects of time dilations.
Mr. Smith received the report about stabilizing the gravity on the shuttles to the Moon. He replied that the guests would need the trip to the Moon to be as stable as a plane flight across the sea. He was getting memos about readymade walls were being taken from a warehouses that he owned. This report told him about the construction of the drill, and that the robotic engineers were building the encampment.
Mr. Smith wanted the oil to start being transported as soon as the refinery in this encampment was up and running. The new carbon shielded walls where being used to build this Encampment on New Earth. The team of scientists that worked on this E-Gate was more eager to find what ells this new world held. As the robots constructed the drill and robotic ran refinery, the rovers, and AIR Surveyors explored this planet.
Dr. Stacey Roberts was collecting the images from the Air Surveyors and found the west coast of what is called North American at Home Earth. She has dreamed of living on the coast of California and now was dreaming of living on the big beaches of this New Earth. Dr. Roberts’s job is to search for any life and record it.
The computers were set to record the findings of plant life itself. Dr. Robert and Dr. Donald wrote a 3D database of the different plant life found on Home Earth that the computers used. There was a 3D database, that categorized the animal life but it was less specific. Dr. Roberts was reviewing the findings that were mostly rodent sized animals including small reptilians.
The insects were abundant on New Earth, but none had more than an eight-inch wingspan. Dr. Robert knew that Dr. Donald that was at the terminal next to her would love the insects. He looked like he was busy typing something right now, so she started tagging the groups of rodents. The two Doctors spent the day finding new animals and insects at this New Earth.
The project to the Moon was moving ahead and Dr. Nixon was eager to go. He designed a bipedal robot with a remote human interface. A human could control the robot at a safe distance with this full body interface. A different team had already delivered two of the robo-interfaces to the mini dome on the moon with two robots. Dr. Nixon was eager to try the rodo-interface from the Lab in Philadelphia.
The team that was delivering the robotics to the moon also controlled the communications satellite between the moon and the Lab. Dr. Peters has been overloading the satellite relay, so he delivered a second satellite relay that was online today. He knew that Dr. Nixon wanted to run around on the Moon with his robo-interface. Dr. Nixon found out about the second satellite, and by the next day, he was eager to use the interface.
This morning Dr. Nixon went to Dr. Peter’s office a requested to use some bandwidth of this new satellite.
Dr. Peters expected to see eager co-workers wanting to use the extra bandwidth, so he wasn’t surprised. “Dr. Nixon, I can see that you’ve herd the new relay is up and running.”
With wide eyes, Dr. Nixon was ready to plead his case. “Yes and—”
Dr. Peters almost rolled his eyes, “Yes I know. There is time this morning that you may use the robo-interface. I have here, the schedule that the construction robotics on the moon will be using. Here is the path I laid out for you to take your robot to steer clear of the construction.”
“Yes thank you. Upload it to my pad.” Insisted Dr. Nixon.
Dr. Nixon takes his pad and go’s nonstop to the robo-interface. He put the keyboard over his shoulders and the hood on his head, gets the gloves and steps into the boots at the interface. He punches a few keys, slides on the gloves, and he put down the hood. The robot starts and Dr. Nixon sees the alien world of the Moon as if he was there.
