A list from tauzero's website (used to be NASA's Breakthrough Propulsion Labs) the site is here
http://www.tauzero.aero

you can Google these papers and find most of them on the web if you're interested.

I am particularly interested in Tajmar's work which involves graviton and acceleration fields and may lead to "star trek" like effects in under 50 years.

Impossible, they said they could goto the moon and return safely, and that was 50 years ago, you must be dreaming. Laugh
