Luanda de Hilster

Luanda de Hilster was acting before she was born. Her birth plays a prominent part in the overall storyline of the de Hilster family with her mom, Doris de Hilster, having a neural-muscular junction disease. Since she was very small, Luanda was always dancing, singing, and acting giving her first formal voice recital at 5 years old.

Luanda currently is 11 years old and in a short time, has become quite an talented actor and singer. In the 6th grade, she won a principle part which required a strong voice beating out many 7th and 8th graders for the part. Her father and director of this film wrote an article about her recently on his own blog you can read here:

Doris de Hilster

Doris de Hilster is a Brazilian Clothes and carnaval costume designer from Rio de Janeiro. She has Myasthenia Gravis, a neural-muscular junction disease. Her pregnancy was a risk given her disease and was wrought with a lot of anxiety.

She also created some of the wardrobe for her husband and director David de Hilster as well as some clothes for the Einstein Wrong music video.

David de Hilster

David de Hilster is the director of the film and is a scientist, artist, and musician. In 1992, David met Argentinian physicist Dr. Ricardo Carezani who proved Einstein wrong in the early 1940s. Dr. Carezani was looking for someone to champion his ideas and David took on the task.

By 2005, David had secured some initial funding to by a professional camera to start shooting “Einstein Wrong, the Miracle Year”. Over 8 years later, the project was complete. In 2007, David shot his music video without a sound track and in 2012, added the theme song written by composer Michael Ruggieri which fit like a glove.

Dr. Domina Eberle Spencer

Natural Philosophy Wiki Entry:
Domina Eberle Spencer


Domina Eberle Spencer is an American mathematician who graduated from MIT in 1942 when few women were attending MIT. She received the raw data from the famous “Haele-Keating Experiment” where they claimed to show that time slowed down on atomic clocks traveling in airliners. Dr. Spencer analyzes these claims in the film.

Born in 1920, Dr. Spencer came to MIT as a high school student in a summer program and stayed on to earn three degrees, her SB in Physics in 1939, SM in Mathematics in 1940, and PhD in Mathematics in 1942. A Professor of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut for the last half century, she has also taught at American University, Tufts, and Brown University.

During the 1950s, Spencer co-authored a series of articles with Prof. Parry Moon (1898-1988) on electrodynamics and induction based on Ampere’s original force law, deriving results contrary to Einstein’s theory of relativity. The Moon and Spencer duo united their efforts through marriage, and went on to write several textbooks in the 1960s, including their unique and useful Field Theory Handbooks. After Moon’s death in 1988, semi-retired Spencer became very active in alternative physics. She co-founded the Natural Philosophy Alliance (NPA) in 1993 and remains the organization’s president, having presented over 50 times at its annual meetings.

At age 96, Spencer continues to develop her unique New Gaussian Electrodynamics, which operates without Einstein’s relativity. In all, she has authored a staggering 300 technical articles during her long career. Her alternative theory is in the Gaussian-Weberian-Ritzian tradition, and she agrees with Gauss that the most fundamental task of electrodynamics is to discover the correct equation for the force between relatively moving charges.

Ron Hatch

Ronald Ray Hatch is a GPS scientist who currently holds over 30 patents in GPS. Ron appears as one of the scientists that finds flaws in Einstein’s theory of relativity. Scientists, professors, and media site GPS as one of the best examples of practical uses for relativity. Mr. Hatch says otherwise.

born in Freedom, Oklahoma, now of Wilmington, California, received his Bachelor of Science degree in physics and math in 1962 from Seattle Pacific University. He worked at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, Boeing and Magnavox as Principle Scientist, before becoming a Global Positioning System (GPS) consultant.

In 1994 he joined Jim Litton, K. T. Woo, and Jalal Alisobhani in starting what is now NavCom Technology, Inc. He has served a number of roles within the Institute of Navigation (ION), including Chair of the Satellite Division, President and Fellow. Hatch received the Johannes Kepler Award from the Satellite Division and the Colonel Thomas Thurlow Award from the ION. He has been awarded twelve patents either as inventor or co-inventor, most of which relate to GPS, about which he is one of the world’s premier specialists.

He is well known for his work in navigation and surveying via satellite. In a pair of articles, Hatch shows how GPS data provides evidence against, not for, both special and general relativity: “Relativity and GPS,” parts I and II, Galilean Electrodynamics, V6, N3 (1995), pp. 51-57; and V6, N4 (1995), pp. 73-78. In his 1992 book, Escape From Einstein, Hatch presents data contradicting the special theory of relativity, and promotes a Lorentzian alternative described as an ether gauge theory.

Bob de Hilster

Robert de Hilster is an Amercian scientist and electrical engineer best known for his work in digitial switching systems and his more recent work on a Particle Model for the entire universe. He is the author of two books including one on gravity entitled Gravity is Not Free and a second book Universe Hack 3.0 which is based on the Partical Model developed by himself and his son David de Hilster. Robert also played a major role in the feature-length documentary film Einstein Wrong – The Miracle Year (2005).

In 2006, Bob was asked by son and film director David de Hilster to help work on a gravity experiment to try and detect gravity as a particle. Since then, he has developed his own equation for gravity that is based on a cloud of forces allow him to simulate any physical setup.  De Hilster has also looked into his gravity equation explaining anomolies in orbits, planet rotation, dark matter, to name a few. Robert is one of the main characters in the documentary film Einstein Wrong – The Miracle Year coming out in late 2013.

Robert has written a book on gravity called Gravity is Not Free and is currently co-authoring the book Universe Hack 3.0 with his son David de Hilster describing what they call the first complete physical model of the entire universe based on the Particle Model.

Patricia Ann de Hilster

Pat de Hilster is an ordinary suburban housewife who agrees to go on a journey to meet scientists outside of the mainstream.

From :

Patricia was born Patricia Anne Darby in Wyandotte Michigan in 1936. Patricia married her high school sweetheart Robert de Hilster and had her first child David in 1959 at the University of Michigan where her husband was attending. They moved around the country in the early 1960s, finally settling down in Ohio during the 1960s to the 1980s. In 1966, the couple adopted two little girls, Karan and Laurie and the family moved to Worthington Ohio in 1970. There Pat gave birth to another boy Michael in 1974. During these years, Patricia often worked in her church community.

After their first three children left, Pat, Michael, and Robert moved to Huntsville Alabama where Patricia volunteered at church and at the local schools working with troubled children. She really loved to work with kids.

In 2004 upon retiring, the couple moved to Long Beach California to be close to David and his Family. There, she stared in the feature-length documentary film “Einstein Wrong – The Miracle Year” produced and directed by son David de Hilster and traveled around the country meeting scientists. During the filming, her granddaughter Luanda was born and Patricia spent much of her time doting on her grandchild. Patricia also could be found helping out in the local Brazilian community with son David and Brazilian daughter-in-law Doris where she made life-long friends.

In 2014, she moved with husband Robert following David’s family including her granddaughter Luanda to Boca Raton Florida where life was much more calm, green, and peaceful compared to the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.

Although Patricia was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age 30 which crippled many of her joints and limited her movement, Pat always had a smile on her face and love in her heart. She never complained even when she was diagnosed with cancer.

She was always happy and full of boundless energy and as son Mike put it: “…was a tank in human form” always moving forward despite a life of pain.

Patricia de Hilster is survived by her husband Robert, her children David, Karan, Laurie, and Michael, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
