Re: EM Drive

SeeShells might disagree. For all we know, China had great results and wants to throw us off the path. I'm still awaiting the report from the NASA experiments.

Re: SpaceX News

Great achievement SpaceX.
I had the privilege of witnessing a historical event last night.
Indeed, access to space will get a lot cheaper.

Re: SpaceX News

My wild guess of a failure sequence. 1. MVAC chilldown starts some 18 seconds before O2 venting. 2. As O2 tank pressure drops because of chilldown O2 flow, pressure regulator opens He tank valve to keep O2 tank pressure constant (The He tanks are located in the O2 tank). 3. Pressure regulator closes...

Theoretical Breakthrough: Generating Matter and Antimatter f

ScienceDaily (Dec. 8, 2010) — Under just the right conditions -- which involve an ultra-high-intensity laser beam and a two-mile-long particle accelerator -- it could be possible to create something out of nothing, according to University of Michigan researchers. The scientists and engineers have de...

I've not mentioned anything about the sun. I don't think you've quite grasped what I'm saying - probably because of the enormity of what I'm saying. I am saying that photons are stationary, and we, the sun, and all 'matter' is moving at c relative to the CoM of the universe. We move relative to the...

"The self defense argument is silly. You are not at war. They pose no significant threat. And changing Islam to be unrecognizable is the same as destroying it. Semantics will not save you. You are proposing genocide." Like our elite Progressives here in the States;you have your head in the sand. Sta...

I could have sworn I just read a blurb on the net about a "strong acid" processes being used to align and extrude fibers of SWCNT that were meters long. Now I can't find it. Dang!

It would be nice to have 20 ft of 1/4" line capable of towing an 18 wheeler in the boot of my vehicle. Not that towing an 18 wheeler is a good idea.

Thanks for the link. I just read it and the original article. Dr. Bussard inspired me as a child with the idea of the "Bussard Ramjet". I have been wondering if there was a way to somehow direct the alpha particles to exit through the centers of the magnets. This is incredibly good news; reduced he...

There were attempts to use cosmic rays, Sun's activity, Earth's internal heat to explain global warming. However, all of them have been disproved. They have been disproved?

Empirical confirmation of supersymmetry (for example detecting the hypothetical Lightest Supersymmetric Particle or any other particle predicted by the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model) would falsify all existing versions of Heim theory, which are mutually exclusive with supersymmetry. Also, i...
