A cooled hollow superconductive shield is energized by an electromagnetic field resulting in the quantized vortices of lattice ions projecting a gravitomagnetic field that forms a spacetime curvature anomaly outside the space vehicle.
The following description supports this assertion of topological quantized vortices in astrophysical scale.
It is proposed here that this equation of quantized distance (5) is resulted from topological quantized vortices (31), and agrees with Gross-Pitaevskii (quantum phion condensate) description of CMB spectrum [25].
Upon rotation, quantized vortices may form within the BEC.
Researchers perform numerical simulations of the BEC wave function based on first principles to determine if quantized vortices exist in these systems.
We also argue in other paper that this redshift quantization could be explained as signature of topological quantized vortices, which also agrees with Gross-Pitaevskiian description [3, 5].
Nonetheless, there is remaining question in this quantized vortices interpretation, i.
It is known that Ginzburg-Landau equation exhibits fractal character, which implies that quantization could happen at any scale, supporting topological interpretation of quantized vortices [4].
