Abstract

According to the gravity theory proposed by H. E. Puthoff, gravity is a form of long-range van der Waals force associated with the Zitterbewegung of elementary particles in response to zero-point fluctuations (ZPF) of the vacuum and the inertia mass is arisen from the interaction with the vacuum electromagnetic zero-point field. From the standpoint of the ZPF field theory, the author studied the possibility of the space propulsion system, which is based on interactions between the zero-point field of the quantum vacuum and high potential electric field. By the theoretical analysis, it is considered that impulsive high potential electric field can produce a sufficient momentum for the spacecraft, which would permit interstellar travel instead of conventional chemical rockets.
