Torsion field

Foreign enterprises are being swindled! - warns the Russian Academy of Sciences. A group of Russian swindlers are seeking investors for their pseudoscientific projects based on what they call "torsion field" and "torsion technologies". The pseudoscientists promise to quickly build "torsion flying saucers", "torsion communications", and "torsion weapons".

Torsion fields

In Sept. 1998, in order to conduct an in-depth investigation into the ongoing torsion fields fraud dating back to the 1980's, the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) established the Commission Against Pseudoscience and Falsification of Scientific Research. The Commission published a collection of papers authored by Commission's Chairman, RAS Academician Dr. Edward Kruglyakov, disclosing numerous facts on the international torsion field fraud organized by a group of Russian swindlers in order to swindle the Russian and foreign governments and private enterprises. Co-Chairman of the Commission is RAS Academician Dr. Vitaly Ginzburg, the Nobel Prize Winner in Physics 2003.

Dr. V.L. Ginzburg: "An example of pseudoscience are projects dealing with practical application of torsion fields. Modern science knows four types of fields: gravitational field, electromagnetic field, and so-called weak and strong fields. In principle, there could exist other fields, in particular so-called torsion field - such possibility has been discussed in the framework of the General Relativity Theory. Various groups of physicists in many countries, including USSR, have been conducting experiments, which showed that torsion fields either do not exist in nature or they are so weak that even the most sensitive detectors cannot detect them. Thus it is quite obvious that torsion fields cannot be put to use as a means of communication or for any other practical purposes. But there appeared charlatans, who have been swindling illiterate military and KGB officers and have been getting large sums of money for their so-called "projects". Our Commission is unmasking those charlatans..." (full text of article by V.L.Ginzburg in Russian)

Dr. E.P. Kruglyakov: "One of the goals of the Commission Against Pseudoscience and Falsification of Scientific Research is to determine the reasons for unjustified dissemination of nonexistent "torsion technologies". Recently, we launched a new investigation... The documents are evidence of the fact that we are dealing with a longstanding large-scale fraud which has nothing in common with science. The fraud has reached a grandiose level..." (Science in Siberia, 2000, #7, full text in Russian)

Akimov

According to the Commission, in late 1980's, a group of charlatans posing as serious physicists organized a large-scale "torsion fields" fraud and spent millions of roubles from the state budget; and now the swindlers are attempting to repeat the fraud in other countries. The main figure in the Soviet fraud was a Anatoly Akimov, who claimed to have discovered a so-called torsion field and claimed to have invented what he called "torsion technologies". Under the pretense of developing his "torsion technologies", Akimov's "Center for Nontraditional Technologies" contrived to spend about 500 million roubles of state money until, in 1991, this fraudulent activity became known to the Academy of Sciences of the USSR and a scandal broke out. The USSR Academy of Sciences conducted an in-depth investigation; it was established that millions of roubles had been spent for "torsion fields research" without any scientific examination. Akimov's Center was closed, Akimov was fired. But very soon A.E. Akimov organized a small private enterprise with a sonorous name "The International Institute for Theoretical and Applied Physics" and this "Institute" published quite a number of pseudoscientific papers about nonexistent "torsion technologies" largely based on a so-called "Theory of the Physical Vacuum" created by a Gennady Shipov.

Shipov

In 1993, G.I. Shipov published a book "Theory of Physical Vacuum" wherein he described "Akimov's torsion generators and torsion technologies" (with pictures). Second edition of the book appeared in 1997, and in 1998 the third edition ("new and improved", "now in English") was published, whereafter the Russian Academy of Sciences organized the Commission Against Falsification of Scientific Research and conducted a scientific examination of the Shipov book. Results of the examination were published, in 2000, in the Russian Physics-Uspekhi Journal (vol. 3, 2000). Academician of RAS Dr. Valery Rubakov, who is a member of the RAS Commission, wrote a review on G.I. Shipov's book. Download the full English text of Dr. Rubakov's review (requires a subscription to Physics-Uspekhi). Physics-Uspekhi, # 3, 2000. V.A. Rubakov: review on the book by G.I.Shipov "Theory of Physical Vacuum". In the review, Dr. V.A. Rubakov conclusively demonstrates that the Shipov book abounds with mathematical errors and false statements. In the end of his review, Dr. Valery Rubakov writes: "The book by G.I. Shipov might not have deserved a review in Physics-Uspekhi if it were not for the following circumstances. G.I. Shipov's "theory" is being actively propagandized by its author and his collaborators... And that is, undoubtedly, to the detriment of science and education... The possibility of existence of torsion fields have long been debated in scientific literature. But if such fields do exist, their interaction with matter must be extremely weak... Existing experimental and astrophysical data excludes the posibility to generate or register torsion fields with devices like "Akimov's torsion generators" described in the book by G.I. Shipov."

Chairman of the Commission Against Falsification of Scientific Research, RAS Academician, Dr. Edward P. Kruglyakov: "From time to time Akimov gets caught in fraud. For example, in 1996 he stated, "The first flying saucer will soon be tested at Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation ENERGIA. Its principle of propulsion is completely new - there is no use of a reactive force. If the tests are successful there is a real prospect of a conversion of all transportation, automobiles, trains, etc. to a new principle without the use of internal combustion engines" ("Chisty Mir [A Clean World Newspaper]", N4, 1996). And here is a comment of V.P. Legostayev, the First Vice President and First Deputy Chief Designer of ENERGIA: "ENERGIA has not been working on, is not working on, and does not expect to be working on the development of 'flying saucers' based on a torsion field generator". Why am I describing this adventure in so much detail? The problem is, although there is not a single supporter of A.E. Akimov in the Physics Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and although the Physics Section of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences has harshly condemned the activity of A.E. Akimov and his henchman G.I. Shipov in the Physical Sciences Branch of the RAS, the torsion fraud is seizing newer and newer bridgeheads. Under the supervision of Mr. Akimov several closed stock companies have been formed which in recent years have gathered a harvest not only inside the country but also in the international arena." (From Report made by Academician E.P.Kruglyakov at the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences Meeting, May 27, 2003. )
