Ladies, Gentlemen,

I understand from some recent reading that the "machine" used for travel in
the movie Contact was derived from some theoretical designs developed by
Kip Thorn at Cal Tech. Does anyone happen to know if the original designs
or notes still exist? So far nothing on the Cal Tech sites that I can find.
