A physicist named Heim came up with a starting theory connecting

gravity and quantum theory, based on 2 extra dimensions and

later another physicist added 2 more which Heim had thought about

but rejected. Heim died in 2001 at the age of 76 but his theory has

achieved something the standard theory of matter has never done:

predict with incredible accuracy the mass of all the particles from

first principles, the best the standard theory can do is between one

and ten percent accuracy. He predicts several new fundamental

forces, similar to what is already seen in the acceleration of the

expansion of the universe and there is a proposal that just won

out over many other proposals for advanced space propulsion.

Heim predicts that a superconducting ring spinning above a

VERY strong magnetic field will start to counter gravity and the stronger

the field and the faster the spin, could lead to an anti-gravity

space drive. It is already a proposal being studied seriously.

The fact that Heims theory predicts mass makes the physics world

take it very seriously indeed.
