Cliff Ellgen graduated Caltech in 1999 with a degree in mathematics. He has been contemplating this theory for more than fifteen years. Since August of 2014, he has been collaborating with Garrett Biehle to refine the theory.
Garrett Biehle received his Ph.D. from Caltech in astrophysics under advisors Kip Thorne and Roger Blandford. He worked out the structure and observational signature of stars with neutron-degenerate cores.
