Steven Rado was born in 1920 in Hungary. In 1939 as a high school graduate he enrolled at the University of Budapest as a physics major. In the same year, forced by Nazi Germany, Hungary declared war on the United States and drafted all jewish and half-jewish men into army-controlled labor camps. Rado escaped from his camp and as an army deserter went underground, joining the Hungarian Liberation Movement.

Among other activities, he created a complete laboratory of document forging, helping hundreds of refugees and deserters to stay alive and fight. Surviving World War II during the short-lived democratic Hungary, he got married and worked as a journalist and playwrite.

His political and philosophical essays appeared in leading newspapers and magazines. In 1948, backed by the Russian army, a Communist dictatorship took over the government. His refusal to join the party cost him his livelihood in every direction. In subsequent years he worked for the state in a home-labor group and again joined the underground liberation movement, this time against the Russian occupation.

In 1956, during the days of the victorious Hungarian Revolution, he wrote, designed, printed and organized the distribution of the 'Liberation Daily' in the form of thousands of silk-screened posters. The revolution won, the Russian occupational army surrendered, but because of the lack of Western intervention, on November 4th, 1956, thousands of Russian tanks flooded the country and killed the revolution and the revolutionaries. On the 15th, at 4:15 AM, after 25 miles of walking and crawling through the border among the Russian tanks, he lead 35 freedom fighters and families to the free land of Austria. On December 11, 1956 Rado, his wife and his seven year old son arrived at Camp Kilmer, New Jersey. -- In 1962 they became US citizens.

From early studies of history, philosophy and political science, he became convinced that the gradual intellectual liberation of people is a direct function of the evolution of science and technology and thus depends on the level of understanding of physics. Hence, he spent most of the free moments of his adult life pursuing the accumulation of knowledge and the understanding of physics, and particularly its modern perplexities, postulated by relativity and quantum mechanics.

At the beginning of his life in the U.S., language barriers and financial burden obstructed him from gaining an official college education. Later on the financial ease of making a living in the U.S. rendered him sufficient free time for further self-education and research in physics.

From the Publisher
The text book of the 21th century

Praise for this Title:

Caroline Thompson - Department of Computer Science University of Wales, UK.
"I am not alone in wanting a return of the aether!! If you're prepared to devote serious time to the subject, and realise that what he's talking about is just a model, but one that does have some very interesting properties, Steven Rado has worked out the details of a mechanical model and you must read his book. I haven't yet finished it, but he gives one hope that we may some day learn to understand our Universe intuitively if we can first really understand the kinetic theory of gases. Don't worry, Rado will teach you, by means of careful analogies and beautiful pictures. Could this be how we shall be taught physics in the next century?"

Fred Walker - Electronic Engineer - Monterey, California , USA
"I have found your book on Aethro-Kinematics fascinating and difficult to put down for more than brief periods. In selfdefense, therefore, I have had to skim through parts of it. I have juist finished your "Epilogue, so that I can now put it down and get on with other necessary things, but I expect to return to it for further study and reference. as time goes on. -- Your scholarly, presentation has been informative and interesting in many details.

"There is no doubt that, our common idea of a universal aether containing dynamic vortices on every scale and thus accounting for all the mechanical events and relationships in the cosmos, provides a better and more promissinq . prospective for the physical sciences than the conventional ideas which now prevail. We can not know how long it will take for these new concepts to take hold, but when the revolution finally explodes, I am sure that your book and your ideas will have a prominent place in the vanguard."

William C. Mitchell - Institute for Advanced Cosmological Studies - Monterey, California, USA
"I received your book a couple of weeks ago and finally have had time to finish reading it. - It's just great. Your knowledge of science and the problems of "modern" science is absolutely overwhelming. Although I can't say that I'm as yet totally convinced of your wonderful Aethro-Kinematic theory, but you have certainly convinced me that you are on the right track. It seems there has to be a medium of transmission of "stuff" through space. Action-at-a-distance violates all our Earthly experience.

Of course I couldn't fully absorb your ideas in a single reading. I hope to read your book again in the relatively near future and get back to you with with more comment.

Bernard Nurnberger - Electrical engineer - Yokahama, Japan, Planet Earth
"My own test of my understanding is: does it work, can I do something with it, and is it basically simple? -- Aethro-kinematics as you explain it IS simple. I want to do something with it now.

"May I state that this book explains to me many phenomena with remarkable common sense. I want to put this precious knowledge to work. The planet needs help to shed the contamination brought about by this fire-society and their polluting fuels. Aethro-kinematics opens the door to new technologies. Your book also deserves mention in New Energy News, the monthly newsletter of the Institute of New Energy."

Bernard L. Feldman - Electrical engineer, inventor. - Watsonville, California, USA
"I have just started reading it and I am completely fascinated by your presentation. The least that can be said about your book is that Chapters 1-4 and 17 constitute a pedagogical masterpiece on modern physics abd the roots of its contradictions. Your review of classical and modern physics is the best of any I've ever read and I've read quite a few on modern physics."

Dr. Ing. J?rgen Schulz - Member of ISAAP - A-9544 Feld am See, Austria
"I went into the sink vortex model, the rotational gravitation hypothesis, which really got me hooked. Makes a lot of sense. But still left with the remaining question what causes the sink process and where the aether goes in the center of a mass, being converted into mass or energy or what - you are now leaving me with the additional problem of the tangential component of the aether on the surface of the earth, that has in my mind no basis of experimental evidence! Or does it? I hope you can solve my little problem. I'm looking forward to your response."

The theory of an all-pervading physical Aether as forming a 'cosmosphere' by its randomly moving constituents, the 'Aethrons', producing an isotropic static pressure on every point of the Universe. The 'natural vorticity' (Descartes) of this medium creates local rotations in the fluid which are condensed by the pressure and evolve into dynamic matter. The first permanent and encapsulated evolutionary unit is a 'donut-vortex-dipole' equal to the modern 'electron dipole', that continues to evolve in all magnitudes of atoms, molecules, solar-systems, galaxies, etc. The model of the Aether is based on the simplest form of Newton's mechanics, but declines his 'Universal Gravitational force' by replacing it with a new force due to the 'Evolution of Matter' thru the dynamic condensation of the Aether into subatomic, atomic and molecular systems, encapsulated into units by the cosmic pressure. Thus, 'matter' is the condensation of rotational dynamics of Aether. All evolving matter consumes the cosmosphere and this procedure rarefying the Aether, that is, create a 'suction force' produced by the inhalation of Aether by the cosmic bodies, feeding their internal evolution. Consider the following enigmas of present physics: Galileo's 'Inertia' and 'Principle of Equivalence' , Newton's mysterious identity of 'gravitational and inertial masses' for explaining Galileo and saving his own derivation of the Kepler's formula. Coulomb's negative and positive fluid charges creating the neutrality of matter, instead of Franklin's much simpler an sensible 'one fluid' theory with its 'surplus', or 'deficiency' on the electrified objects. Faraday's mysteriously visible magnetic and electric lines of forces in empty space and Maxwell's inability to build a model of Aether which forces him to a Langrangean mathematical detour and to postulate an enigmatic 'displacement current' without a conveying Aether.? J.J. Thomson discovery of the first subatomic particle, named as 'electron' and defined as a negative? charge carrier in one of Coulomb's two fluids. Rutherford discovered a second subatomic particle, the 'proton' being 1836 times more massive than the electron, but inherits the 'same unit charge' as the electron, but 'positive'. Thus the proton became the nucleus of the Hydrogen atom, with one orbital electron. Einstein demolished all Aether theories, postulated that the speed of light is the limit of the motion of matter and discovered that the 'inertial mass' of an object is increasing when it is approaching the speed of light. His gravitation is not a 'force', but simply an 'acceleration field', that is due to 'the effect of mass on geometry, as it curves? Euclid's straight line motion into orbits according to the inverse square law of action at a distance. 20th century physics finally concludes that protons are imprisoned in the nucleus and could not 'flow' at all, thus the 'electric current' is not the positive fluid of protons as Coulomb suggested, but the negative 'Electron Current'. Nevertheless, the protons are still repelling each other with an immense force of repulsion in the tiny nucleus, therefore, to save the 'electrostatic model of the atom' and Coulomb's whole theory had to be mathematically saved by the newest 'Standard Model' of 'Quantum Mechanics' by postulating an immensely 'Strong Nuclear Force', which is just enough strong to cancel the protonic repulsion in the nucleus but short-range enough to leave a good old attraction field alive to keep the electrons on their orbits at 10.000 nuclei-diameters distance away in empty 'action at a distance'.? All these are described, explained and resolved here by Aethro-dynamics that is also contains a full CD version of the first volume; Aethro-kinematics for detailed history.

In Aethro-kinematics, published in 1994, we gave an approximative theory of the kinematic origin of the known forces of Nature based on the 'ideal gas model' of the Aether. -This article is a forecast of a part of the second volume, titled 'Aethro-dynamics'. It presents the heuristic theory that matter evolved from the dynamic vorticity of the Aether. The elementary units of matter are permanent flow patterns, condensed under the isotropic constant pressure of the gaseous Aether. This possibility is in agreement with Bernoulli's principle; an application of the law of the 'conservation of energy' in fluid-dynamics. The theory renders a conceptual foundation for E = mc2.

This paper was extracted from my new book, Aethro-Dynamics (2009), containing the latter half of Chapter 5, ?Revisiting Gravity, Free Fall and Inertia?. Based on the resolution of ?Polarization? and postulating a corpuscular gaseous Aether, filling all space represents a fundamental cosmospheric pressure, the background force with a unifying equilibrating effect on all locally appearing forces and phenomena. The Aethro-kinematic ?Sink-vortex? and the discovery of ?Theory of Evolution of Matter? is the inert motor of the cosmos, causing Gravity, Free Fall and Inertia.
