Intelligent alien races could travel through interstellar space unseen by firing LASERS into orbiting black hole pairs to create high-speed 'halo
One Ivy League Astronomer says humans could achieve fuel-free interstellar travel by harvesting energy from binary black holes in a brand new method dubbed the 'Halo Drive.'

Theoretically, said David Kipping, an astronomer at Columbia University, aliens could already be using that technology without our knowledge.

The Halo Drive method of propelling a spacecraft would work by utilizing 'gravitational mirrors' – a region of a black holes that swallows up matter and shoots it back out in exactly the same direction – to absorb the holes' energy.

The search for intelligence amongst the cosmos is often guided by considering the possible activities of hypothetical advanced civilizations and the associated technosignatures that would result,' said Kipping in a study published in the journal AirXiv.

'Along these lines, this work has considered how an advanced civilization might utilize the light sailing concept to conduct relativistic and extremely efficient propulsion.'

Scientists have observed that when photons enter a gravitational mirror and are subsequently shot back out, they not only gain velocity from their journey, they also retain some of the kinetic energy from the visit.

Kipping says using those returned photons, which are called 'boomerang photons,' interstellar travelers could theoretically use the harvested energy to travel at a velocity 133 percent greater than the black hole.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
