Neil Jones & Jonathan Hare - Investigating Achillean Relativity, ca. 1997
Neill Jones studied physics at Sussex University and now works as a
freelance computer researcher. At university he developed an interest in
relativity theory which he has continued to study and develop. His own
theoretical investigations (Achillean Relativity) have provided him with a
great source of interest and inspiration. In this project we devised,
designed, built and calibrated a sensitive piece of apparatus with which to
test some of his predictions. Although we showed that our apparatus worked
very well we were unable to detect effects that Neill had predicted, at least under the limitations of our simple experiment. This has
now given Neill the much needed experimental investigations for him to
explore his theory further and the CSC is looking forward to the next stage
in the work. The Creative Science Centre provides the ideal environment in
which to make these sort of speculative investigations. We would like to
thank Prof. William McCrea, Prof. Danko Bosanac and Dr Bernd Eggen for
helpful discussions and insight.

electronic apparatus for the project.
