In SlipString Drive, Bender describes how
ships using this method of propulsion
would appear to those outside of the
ship's partially ""gravitationally isolated""
region of space while maneuvering at
slow speeds. Bender also discusses
novel uses for such a vessel, such as
saving humanity from comets to
Bender also offers a ""Membrane
Theory of Gravity."" A modification of M-theory,
this new theory unifies all
forces, and predicts dark matter and
energy. It also theorizes how the
acceleration of our universe will change
over time, along with other predictions
that could prove modified M-theory
correct observationally-a feat no other
cosmologist has yet achieved. Finally,
Bender hypothesizes how the universe
will end, and how our descendants could
survive that fateful occurrence.
""Bender embarks with all the eagerness—if not the ringing clarity—of Brian Greene...
-A fertile physics funhouse for the highly curious and motivated lay reader."" -Kirkus Discoveries
""Thoughtful, infectious, and mind-expanding ... a highly readable book which offers both a
theoretical refinement of M-theory and an important practical application with dramatic
implications for the future of intelligent life in the universe."" -Theodore C. Nason, Ph.D., Physics"
