You Can’t Get to Mars Without Me! The Rules of Gravity, Michelle M. Turner, 2021
There are many things regarding the science of this world that are as-yet undiscovered. Perhaps the most immediately important is the mystery that is gravity. To date, we do not know the origin of gravity, how we organize within gravity, how to interact with it and the immature to mature levels of interaction. These unknowns are the primary cause for concern when discussing the future reality that is space travel and interplanetary colonization.
However, Michelle M Turner, author of The Rules of Gravity: You Can’t Get to Mars Without Me!, has spent the last fifteen years studying the human body through the lens of Special Needs (Autism, TBI’s, MS, etc.), when she discovered the similarities in functionality between astronauts returning from space and an individual with Special Needs. This led her to begin her self-education in the field of physics, specifically gravity. In her new book, You Can’t Get to Mars Without Me!, Ms. Turner explores twenty-one new theories of gravity and their applications in space - both space travel and colonization. The hope and intention is that these theories will improve the quality of life for mankind and improve apace travel and colonization for all citizens of Earth.
