Based on the results of the first and successful launch of the most powerful Russian launch vehicle at that time, its developers received a complete set of telemetric records. Everything was in order and did not cause any excitement, with the exception of the signals from the angular velocity measurement system (SIUS), however, from a very small number of those who saw them.
As Dersu Uzala used to say, “there is to look – to see no”. And those who saw them were perplexed by the trajectory of all the signals of the system on the site from the moment of 1 s (until the missile was lifted off the launch pad) and up to the immediate separation. The system is triple, with three redundant edges. Each face has two channels. The channel consists of a meter oriented with the sensitivity axis along the Y-axis of the missile, and a meter oriented along the Z-axis in the common plane of the frame. A total of six meters, all located nearby and all at the same time gave abnormal signals. The trajectories of all signals have the same character, therefore, only two of them are shown for illustration. Their unusualness consisted in strange jumps relative to the time scale, first back into the past, then ahead of time into the future, and, finally, the return to the normal position at the moment of missile separation. The trajectories of the remaining systems do not have such jumps either during prelaunch preparation or during flight phases. But in flight, the SIUS signals look completely normal.
Signals were recorded discretely once per cycle of operation of the onboard computer. The value of each signal containing information on the amplitude and sign of the angular velocity was recorded in the memory cell assigned to it. In the next cycle of the calculator, the contents of the cell were sent over a radio channel to a ground computer, and the cell was cleared. In the ground calculator, the signal was assigned a serial number and the time of its receipt was recorded. Later, when printing out the records, the machine built signal trajectories in time, connecting the next signal with the previous one by number with straight lines. Taking into account such a recording algorithm, the absence of signal deviations from other systems, the complete autonomy of the SIUS channels and the synchronization of the appearance and termination of anomalies, telemetry specialists categorically deny the possibility of a failure, but cannot explain the phenomenon. But you must.
There is no explanation within the framework of ordinary ideas, therefore, it is necessary to go beyond them and find at least one thread that will lead to the desired one. Such a thread is high-sensitivity gyroscopes, new for this rocket, which are the main elements of the SIUS. And it leads to the hypothesis of the material nature of time, formulated on the basis of experiments with gyroscopes by the Russian astronomer, professor at the Pulkovo Observatory N.A.Kozyrev in the middle of the 20th century. The gyroscope under the influence of the force developed by time can change its state, and the time itself is deformed by the energy released by the physical process. We are probably faced with such a phenomenon. The physical process in this case is the operation of rocket engines. The energy they gave off warped time, and the gyroscopes responded to this. As Kozyrev predicted, when energy was released, time is a thing of the past. Judging by the nature of the trajectories of the gyroscopes’ signals, the space in the place of their location was also deformed. The behavior of time and space resembles nested springs with coinciding ends, which have different stiffness. When impacting the ends, the springs are compressed, displaced relative to each other, straightened, skipping the equilibrium position by inertia, and return to their original position. Similarly, time and space go into the past, but due to different rigidity in it they do not coincide, then they move towards the initial position, slip into the future by inertia, return to the equilibrium present and coincide. Interesting, but what of this?
When launching powerful missiles, there were cases of their separation from the launch pad slightly earlier than the moment provided for by the cyclogram of prelaunch preparation. These facts were not explained, although the entire flight is always scrupulously analyzed. However, in the light of the stated deformation hypothesis, it is logical to assume that when the local time jumps into the future during the operation of the rocket engine, the on-board computer takes it as true and issues a lift command. The signal deformation intervals both by the moment of their appearance and by the duration coincide with the moment and duration of the premature start interval. This is a few tenths of a second.
Why was nothing of the kind seen in flight? Probably, here you can see an analogy with the movement of a conductor in a magnetic field. The current in the conductor appears only when the magnetic lines of force are crossed, that is, in a sense, in a non-stationary process. Until the moment of separation, the rocket engine works with a set of starting power – a non-stationary process takes place, but further in flight, until the separation of the first stage, it changes insignificantly, that is, the process is already stationary. Judging by the telemetry of the SIUS signals, the level of time deformation is determined not by the absolute amount of the acting energy, but by the level of its increment. It is just very high when the engines reach their starting power.
Some oddities are still observed in flight. These are small, inexplicable errors in the hit of warheads of multiple warheads or in the withdrawal of spacecraft, which do not fit into the theoretical calculations of extremely fine-tuned control systems. From the point of view of the hypothesis being developed, the reason may be the deformation of time under the action of the energy released by the explosion of squibs during the separation of the rocket stages, and the included propulsion engines. This deformation, naturally, leads to errors in the moments of issuing control commands and, accordingly, performing the task.
Another, “mystical” source of errors is possible. One of the provisions of Kozyrev’s hypothesis reads: “If time affects a system with a causal relationship, then the physical properties of a substance must change … the vibration frequency of quartz plates changes, the electrical conductivity and volume of a number of substances decrease …” This has been proven by experience. And the control system is entirely quartz plates and electrically conductive substances. The impacts are relatively small and the uncertainties are small. For now, they can be neglected. However, it is possible that with the advent of more powerful missiles or new tasks, the scale of the phenomenon will increase.
