Biography

Leslee A. Kulba received a B.S. in Math from Michigan State University's Lyman Briggs College. She taught math and physics at the high school and college levels, and authored several articles for the Electric Space Craft Journal (ESJ).

"My passion, for which I cannot find the time anymore, is explaining EM in terms of the mass and charge of protons and electrons. A rigorous treatment would allow the reader to explain any physical phenomenon in terms of these fundamental particles/forces, and, among other things, debunk Einstein's relativity."

Description:

The Electric Spacecraft Journal is a journal of individual exploratory research, publishing articles by amateurs and professionals from the fields of engineering, physics, education and science. Most contributors also participate in the Network. We strive to present alternative concepts and combine research efforts to work toward a common goal: making achievable "quantum leaps" in space travel.

Electric Spacecraft, Inc. is a network of interactive researchers from around the world seeking electrodynamic propulsion techniques for space travel by questioning assumptions and testing the limits of institutionalized science. Garage tinkerers, armchair philosophers, and university physicists are invited to share objective data and well-reasoned hypotheses offering new insights into the nature of electrostatics, electromagnetics, atomic physics, gravity and inertia, and energy. ESI's Electric Spacecraft Journal, provides a forum for thought-provoking submissions to be read and debunked or expanded upon by others in the network.


Papers by Leslee A. Kulba



Two Fundamental Laws

(2000)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com



Abstract:

All physical phenomena are explained in terms of particles reestablishing equilibrium in accordance with Newton?s law of gravitation and Coulomb?s force law. In other words, the overall rate of expansion of the universe is constant, and the net distribution of universal charge is constant. Energy exists by virtue of disturbances requiring the rest of the universe to compensate for a local rearrangement of charge or mass. Energy, in any form, has no substance, per se. Field lines, energy rays, and other devices traditionally contrived to simplify conceptualizations are dismissed as only complicating perceptions.



What Part of Coulomb's Law Don't You Understand?

(2004)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com



Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 37, pp. 1-11
Keywords: Coulombs Law

Lookup: law (61)

Abstract:

The physical universe consists solely of nucleons with unit charge and mass inextricably connected.  Electromagnetic radiation is hypothesized to be a natural consequence of charge obeying Coulomb's Law and mass obeying Newton's Law of gravitation.  This is equivalent to saying that the net distribution of charge in the universe is constant and momentum is conserved.



Flying into Orbit

(1991)

Dr. Charles A. Yost
73 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; cay@electricspacecraft.com, 828-683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com
Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 2, pp. 27-32
Keywords: aerodynamics, drag, energy requirement, escape velocity, lift, power requirement

Lookup: drag (4), energy (303), velocity (55), power (15)

Abstract:

This article describes the energy required to reach earth's escape velocity. A simple analysis is given, ignoring the many losses and complications that accompany the present state of technology.



Einstein's Relativity: The Special and General Theory (Fallacious Claims in Common Arguments against FTL)

(2008)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com


Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 44, pp. 21-29
Keywords: relativity, electromagnetism

Lookup: relativity (390), electromagnetism (33)

Abstract:

Inferences drawn from Einstein's theories are counterintuitive. Justifications for the theories are hand-wavy at best. Newton's law of gravitation and Coulomb's force law for electrostatics provide explanations for experimental "proof" of Einstein's theories that is not only less exotic, but a natural consequence of the inertial and electrostatic properties believed to be possessed by protons and electrons.

c=(e0m0)^-0.5

(1996)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 18, pp. 6-12

Abstract:

As the field of electrostatics reopens in the search for a mechanism for large-scale electric propulsion, questions arise which go beyond the scope of undergraduate curricula. Sometimes phenomena are observed which appear to contradict conventional theory. It is therefore necessary to reexamine accepted interpretations and applications of fundamental notions for consistency. This paper examines two constants of proportionality, e and m, from a philosophical basis; addressing their derivation, arbitrary nature, physical properties, and coincidental interconnectedness with each other and other constants. Examination of the principles underlying elementary physics reveals that, although the science is a great tool for accounting for physical changes, the physical essence of what is really happening is still unknown.



Thoughts on Electromagnetics

Abstract:

With the ESJ Forum, we present differing views on a selected topic. The contributors are often far more knowledgeable about the subject than we are at ESJ. But, even the most knowledgeable have different opinions, and we expect the forum to generate much critical argument. It is our hope that by including such diverse views, we will facilitate interactive learning and understanding. In this issue, the discussion centers on commentary about electromagnetics that was sparked by ESJ 18.



T. T. Brown's Rock Electricity

(1997)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com

Keywords: charge clusters, human body capacitance, levitating frog, xeromorphs

Lookup: charge clusters (6), charge (49), body (6), clusters (11), human (4)

Abstract:

The 25th meeting of the Electrostatics Society of America was held at the University of Georgia, Athens, June 29 - July 2, 1997. Talks were varied, dealing with the role of electrostatics in such applications as the routine of the honeybee, reducing dust in chicken coops, manufacturing textiles, improving spraying devices, and removing pollutants from clay soils. Classical curiosities, breakthrough technologies, anomalous phenomena, and speculations were all presented to an inquisitive and critical audience. Some highlights follow.



Electrostatic Fusion at the University of Illinois

(1998)

322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 23, pp. 14-16
Keywords: inertial electrostatic confinement, fusors, George Miley, University of Illinois

Lookup: electrostatic (5), inertial (35), confinement (3)

Abstract:

Inertial electrostatic confinement (IEC) is the process by which neutrons are reproduced in a plasma. Tabletop IEC devices, informally referred to as fusors, were first operated in the 1950s. (See ?Fusors,? by Richard Hull on pages 6-12.) More recently, conceptual design studies, undertaken at the Universities of Illinois and Wisconsin, explored the potential for IEC applied to large-scale power generation and space propulsion. This is a brief review of an article sent to ESJ by the author, George Miley.

The Shape of Light

(1998)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 27, pp. 26-29

Lookup: light (157), electromagnetic radiation (4), radiation (40), waves (40), electromagnetic (46), nature (7), michelson (4), dipole (2), dual (4), hertzian (7)

Abstract:

The conventional depiction of light as a transverse wave is misleading. A series of gedanken experiments has led to the conclusion that light propagates as other waves, as three-dimensional wave fronts through a supporting medium. This view of light might eliminate many epicycles in modern physics.



ESJ Forum: The Shape of Light

(1999)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com

Lookup: light (157), electromagnetic radiation (4), theory (173), field (99), physical (23), radiation (40), waves (40), electromagnetic (46), hertzian (7), interpretation (2)

Abstract:

Light is enigmatic. Those who have seriously contemplated its fundamental nature are of a variety of opinions. In ESJ 27, Kulba suggested that light, arising from excitations and de-excitations of electrons, differed only in scale from radio waves emanating from a dipole antenna. It was further proposed that the aether was nothing more than the combination of all fields set up by the relative positions of all charges in the universe. Kulba shared these ideas with a handful of knowledgeable scientists, and the thought-provoking feedback they provided is the basis of this forum.

Abstract:

The Force Field Propulsion Physics eGroup is a website in which individuals can discuss and critique ideas about space-time, atomic structure and EM propulsion. It tends to be dominated by a small group of personalities, but in fact is open to anyone granted a registration pass. It has split into two factions (eGroup and Greenglow), reformed into one, and split again. It is primarily a British site, but has international contributors. We have extracted some of this collection from hundreds of pages. The eGroup website is www.egroups.com/group/forcefieldpropulsionphysics/.



Earth?s Electrodynamic Environment

(2002)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com

Lookup: lightning (5), field (99), magnetic (55), space (104), cosmic (14), electricity (8), solar (24), rays (6), atmospheric (2), wind (3), weather (2)

Abstract:

Lightning storms and aurorae are evidence of electricity in the atmosphere. Electrodynamic phenomena, however, are constantly acting in earth?s atmosphere, and throughout the cosmos. Magnetic fields from dynamos of uncertain mechanism, acting beneath the surfaces of stars and planets, entrain the vast quantities of charged particles which permeate space. The paths of these particles are complexified by currents set up by their motion, and in opposition to their motion; as well as the rotations and revolutions of heavenly bodies with respect to each other. Fluctuating patterns emerge as superimposed fields establish equilibrium with each other. Much of the current theory about the shells within shells of interactive electromagnetic fields in the galaxy has been inferred from broadband spectral observations and particle counts taken on space missions. Working from the terrestrial surface toward the outer reaches of the galaxy, this special issue of the Electric Spacecraft Journal will present an overview of the earth?s large-scale electrodynamic environment as it is currently understood.



Dielectrophoresis

(2002)

322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 35, pp. 6-8
Keywords: Brownian motion, dielectrophoresis, electrophoresis, electrostriction, piezoelectricity

Lookup: motion (71)

Abstract:

Newton?s laws describe how masses exert forces on each other. Forgetting that mass and charge are inextricably connected, many rocket scientists maintain that the only hope for electric propulsion will involve some form of reaction mass ? as with in jets. Microbiologists however, have for years been observing several classes of motions induced by coulomb forces. [Erratum: This is non sequitur. Charge may move mass, but reaction mass will always conserve momentum.] The different motions are distinguished by the ionization processes involved and the type of motion resulting. An illustrated summary of the forces discussed in this paper appears on the back cover.

Keywords: speed of gravity, experiment

Lookup: experiment (56), speed of gravity (2), gravity (124), speed (58)

Abstract:

An experiment claiming to have measured the speed of gravity brings public attention to an ongoing debate.



Review of Monstein and Wesley?s Evidence of Scalar Longitudinal Waves

(2003)

Leslee A. Kulba
322 Sunlight Drive, Leicester, NC 28748, United States; lkulba@electricspacecraft.com, (828) 683-0313, www.electricspacecraft.com
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 36, pp. 12-14
Keywords: longitudinal waves, Maxwell?s equations, scalar potential, scalar waves

Lookup: longitudinal waves (2), scalar waves (4), maxwell?s equations (3), waves (40), equations (52), scalar (15), potential (25), longitudinal (7), maxwell?s (6)

Abstract:

Monstein and Wesley believed that derivations from Maxwell?s equations required the existence of scalar electrodynamic waves. To test for a longitudinal component of an oscillating electric field, they constructed a mechanical polarizer and measured its ability to affect signal absorption. They observed that the signal was efficiently blocked when the polarizing rods were parallel to the direction of propagation, and practically unaffected when it was perpendicular. To see if this longitudinally-propagated component was a wave, they tested it for adherence to the inverse-square law and the law of reflection. The case for the former law was persuasive, and the latter looks hopeful, but requires experimental refinements.

Keywords: group velocity, inverse Doppler effect, phase velocity, Sedden and Bearpark

Lookup: effect (63), velocity (55), inverse (3), doppler (15), phase (4), group (3)

Abstract:

Ordinarily, the wavelength of radiation will be increased upon reflection from a receding surface. An electrical circuit has been constructed in which RF generated by a disturbance reflects off the receding disturbance with a shorter wavelength. Following this sleight of hand requires keeping track of the phase and group velocities.

Keywords: astronautical engineering, Hall thrusters, propulsion

Lookup: propulsion (15), engineering (2), hall (4)

Abstract:

"Lift where you stand" is a popular American idiom that means, in essence, that one does not have to travel to exotic parts of the world to do good. Applied to space travel for its convenient pun, it could mean any number of things. First and foremost is the assertion that breakthroughs in astronautical engineering are most likely to occur by building on existing technology, one step at a time. It could also mean that discoveries leading to important next steps could be as far away as our own garages.

2011, 18th Natural Philosophy Alliance Conference, College Park, MD, United States

Abstract:

Previous work defending the thesis that all physical phenomena may be explained in terms of Coulomb's law and Newton's universal law of gravitation is reviewed. In sum, matter is described as gradient fields of charge and mass inextricably connected in the proton and electron. Energy is described as mathematical constructs defining relative positions of charge and mass. Coulomb chain reactions are considered necessary and sufficient to explain electromagnetic phenomena. Particular attention is paid in this paper to the implications of this view on Special Relativity Theory.
