Boeing Admits Anti-Gravity Work

Anti-gravity propulsion comes ‘out of the closet’

By Joseph P. Farrell

Now there are a number of things in this article I want to draw your attention to:
“As part of the effort, which is being run out of Boeing’s Phantom Works advanced research and development facility in Seattle, the company is trying to solicit the services of a Russian scientist who claims he has developed anti-gravity devices in Russia and Finland. The approach, however, has been thwarted by Russian officialdom.
“The Boeing drive to develop a collaborative relationship with the scientist in question, Dr Evgeny Podkletnov, has its own internal project name: ‘GRASP’ — Gravity Research for Advanced Space Propulsion.”
Now Dr. Evgeny Podkletnov’s work has been known for quite some time, as have its anti-gravity implications. Indeed, Cook himself first wrote of this back in his turn-of-the-millennium bestselling book. Nor should it surprise us that Russia has thwarted efforts to allow Podkletnov to go to the West even if he were inclined to do so, for his work has obvious national security implications. Dr. Podkletnov has become a “resource.” And that means of course that the Russians are working on it too. We’ll get back to that in a moment.
Then there’s this:
“But it is also apparent that Podkletnov’s work could be engineered into a radical new weapon. The GRASP paper focuses on Podkletnov’s claims that his high-power experiments, using a device called an ‘impulse gravity generator’, are capable of producing a beam of ‘gravity-like’ energy that can exert an instantaneous force of 1,000g on any object — enough, in principle, to vaporise it, especially if the object is moving at high speed.
“Podkletnov maintains that a laboratory installation in Russia has already demonstrated the 4in (10cm) wide beam’s ability to repel objects a kilometre away and that it exhibits negligible power loss at distances of up to 200km. Such a device, observers say, could be adapted for use as an anti-satellite weapon or a ballistic missile shield. Podkletnov declared that any object placed above his rapidly spinning superconducting apparatus lost up to 2% of its weight.
Although he was vilified by traditionalists who claimed that gravity-shielding was impossible under the known laws of physics, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) attempted to replicate his work in the mid-1990s. Because NASA lacked Podkletnov’s unique formula for the work, the attempt failed. NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama will shortly conduct a second set of experiments using apparatus built to Podkletnov’s specifications.”
Now using high power gravity waves would be a handy thing to have around for a weapon, particularly if one wanted, say, to vaporize a threatening asteroid (think Mr. Dmitri Medvedev here folks). Now note that, according to Cook, Boeing has a paper that claims that Podkletnov (and therefore, the Russians) has a device called an “impulse gravity generator.” capable of inducing 1000gs on any object and, in effect, crushing it to vapor. And that too is a handy thing to have around if one wants to build – as does Mr. Medvedev – a Russian asteroid space defense system. It’s also a handy device to have around if one wants to blow up huge spaceships or the occasionally troublesome planet, a la George Lucas’ Star Wars scenario, but that’s a much older story that we don’t have time to go into here.

Note however that Podkletnov is also maintaining that a Russian laboratory has some version of a device – perhaps his own – that exudes a beam that can repel an object at a kilometer’s distance. This too, believe it or not, is nothing new. The idea has been around since the 1950s, and was, in fact, the object of a now declassified US program to use concentrated microwaves as a propulsion system, utilizing the repelling quality known as the microwave soliton effect, a project and effect recently documentaed by Dr. Paul LaViolette’s excellent book Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion(the book is available on my website’s webstore).  What is comparatively new is Mr. Cook’s statement in the article that the effect has been extended with negligible power loss to 200km. (A side note: readers of my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations will recall the US military project to base satellites in space and to beam microwave power back to the Earth for conversion to electricity. The result of that project, had it been implemented, would have been that the Earth-bound microwave receiving stations would have been so saturated with microwave radiation as to crisp the area for 145 km/sq around the site, and nothing could have lived or grown within that area. This suggests that similar effects might be evident in Russia, and that that country, with such vast amounts of wilderness, would be the ideal place to develop and test such a technology.)

What is really intriguing about the article – and Mr. Cook apparently missed this point – is the assertion that there are also materials that have “shielding”  properties, and that these are unknown to current laws of physics. Perhaps…perhaps not, for again, readers of my books, and in particular The Philosophers’ Stone, will recall that Dr. Nicolai Kozyrev’s torsion experiments revealed that some materials shielded against torsion waves/effects more than others, and some metals, such as aluminum, shielded against it altogether. Torsion and gravity are connected, though in ways not yet adequately understood. But the bottom line here is what Mr. Cook’s article suggests, and that is, that Russia, despite all public denials about pseudo-science and so on connected with Kozyrev’s and his followers’ work, is still conducting secret research into it, and if Podkletnov’s assertions as revealed in this article are true, doing so on a large scale and developing first generation(or later) practical devices.

And finally, and most obviously, I hope you caught the subtle and implied message in the article: Russia is doing practical anti-gravity research, and they are ahead of us and we need to catch up fast….

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A new way of assembling things, called metamaterials, may in the not too distant future help to protect a building from earthquakes by bending seismic waves around it. Similarly, tsunami waves could be bent around towns, and soundwaves bent around a room to make it soundproof.

While the holy grail of metamaterials is still to make objects and people invisible to the eye, they are set to have a more tangible commercial impact playing more mundane roles - from satellite antennas to wirelessly charging cellphones.

Metamaterials are simply materials that exhibit properties not found in nature, such as the way they absorb or reflect light. The key is in how they're made. By assembling the material - from photonic crystals to wire and foam - at a scale smaller than the length of the wave you're seeking to manipulate, the wave can, in theory, be bent to will.

This makes metamaterials the tool of choice for scientists racing to build all sorts of wave-cloaking devices, including the so-called invisibility cloak - a cover to render whatever's inside effectively invisible by bending light waves around it.

"The invisibility cloak was just one more thing we were discovering - that we have all this flexibility in this material and here's another thing we can do," David Smith of Duke University, widely regarded as one of the founding fathers of metamaterials, said in a telephone interview. "But we're equally interested in seeing this transition in making a difference in people's lives."

Indeed, Smith's own journey from laboratory to factory illustrates that while metamaterials have for some become synonymous with "Harry Potter" cloaks, their promise is more likely to be felt in a range of industries and uses, from smaller communication devices to quake-proof buildings.

German scientists say 'great likelihood' they've found Charlemagne's bones

I have to add that there appears to be a worldwide search for remains of the great kings of old, perhaps the most interesting being the story of finding the Tomb of Gilgamesh, the half human, half god/giant of the Sumerian flood story. Now what would these scientists be planning to do with the genetic material of these ancient kings of old?
The completely restored sarcophagus of Emperor Charles the Great, or Charlemagne, (742-814) with scenes of the mythological story of Proserpina's kidnapping was displayed in Berlin's museum for antiquity and Byzantine art. (Reuters)
German scientists have said that there is a "great likelihood" that bones taken from the supposed resting place of Charlemagne are indeed the remains of the first ruler of the Holy Roman Empire.
The research team secretly opened the sarcophagus believed to contain Charlemagne's remains in 1988 and have been studying them ever since. One of the scientists, Dr. Frank Rühli, told the English-language German news site The Local that "Thanks to the results from 1988 up until today, we can say with great likelihood that we are dealing with the skeleton of Charlemagne."

At the time of his death in 814, Charlemagne ruled an area of Europe that stretched from present-day Spain in the west to present-day Austria in the east and from central Italy to the modern border between Germany and Denmark. He was buried in the cathedral at Aachen, now in Western Germany.

The scientists say that studying the dimensions of upper arm, thigh, and shin bones has given them to describe the man buried in the sarcophagus, and it matches contemporary descriptions of Charlemagne.

Chroniclers described the emperor as standing approximately six feet high and having a thin build. In addition, the scientists discovered deposits in the skeleton's kneecap and heel bones, which may square with accounts that the ruler walked with a limp in his later years. The Local reported that while most of the bones are accounted for, it is believed that some were given away as relics at the time of Charlemagne's death.

The U.S. Air Force's unmanned X-37B space plane has now circled Earth for more than 400 days on a hush-hush mission that is creeping closer and closer to the vehicle's orbital longevity record

The X-37B spacecraft launched on Dec. 11, 2012, meaning that it has been aloft for 413 days as of Tuesday, Jan. 28, on the third mission for the program, which is known as OTV-3 (short for Orbital Test Vehicle-3). The endurance record is 469 days, set during OTV-2, which blasted off in 2011.
OTV-2 and OTV-3 have utilized different X-37B vehicle (the Air Force currently has two vehicles). The space plane currently zipping around Earth also flew the program's inaugural OTV-1 mission, which stayed in space for 225 days after launching in 2010.

OTV-1 and OTV-2 both touched down at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base. But the Air Force and Boeing, which builds the X-37B, are eyeing NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida as a landing site for future missions.

Decoded: 3,000-Year-Old Inscriptions May Prove Biblical Account of Powerful Reign of King Solomon and Jerusalem

By Dawn Cherie Araujo (news@gospelherald.com

 A Jewish history scholar believes he has decoded the eight letters thought to be the most ancient Hebrew inscription to come out of Jerusalem. Gershon Galil, a Jewish history professor at the University of Haifa, says the letters appear on a wine jug and the inscription tells what type of wine it contained: cheap wine for slaves. "This wine was not served on the table of King Solomon nor in the Temple," Galil wrote in the journal New Studies on Jerusalem. "Rather it was probably used by the many forced laborers in the building projects and the soldiers that guarded them."

He notes this proves the biblical account of Jerusalem as a sophisticated and powerful city, which some scholars have denied. "The ability to write and store the wine in a large vessel designated for this purpose, while noting the type of wine, the date it was received, and the place it was sent from, attests to the existence of an organized administration that collected taxes, recruited laborers, brought them to Jerusalem, and took care to give them food and water," he wrote.

National Park Declared Where David Fought Goliath

Archaeologists claim a building unearthed at Khirbet Qeiyafa was King David's 'Suburban Palace.'

A national park will be declared at Khirbet Qeiyafa and the Ela Valley, southwest of Jerusalem, and a residential neighborhood that had been planned next to the location will not be built. The area is believed to be the spot where the young David fought Goliath, according to the Bible.

The decision was made by the Jerusalem District Committee for Planning and Construction. The national park will stretch from Beit Natif in the east to Khirbet Qeiyafa in the west, and the construction of the southern neighborhood of Ramat Beit Shemesh will be scrapped.

The decision is being hailed as a major accomplishment for the preservation of nature in Israel, and as the product of successful cooperation between the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Nature and Parks Authority.

Khirbet Qeiyafa, an ancient ruin atop a hill that borders the Ela Valley from the north, is thought to be the Biblical city of Sha'arayim. The city is heavily fortified, and is typical of other Judean cities that were established during the period of the Kings, before the destruction of the First Temple. It has been excavated since 2007 by archeologists Prof. Yosef Garfinkel from Hebrew University, and Saar Ganor of the Antiquities Authority.

The site features three unique public buildings, the first of their kind ever found in the Judean area. The buildings date to the tenth century before the Common Era – the period in which King David reigned in Jerusalem.

Garfinkel and Ganor have claimed that one of the buildings is indeed a palace used by King David himself.

The Head of the Preservation Administration within the Antiquities Authority, Raanan Kislev, issued a statement hailing what he called a “dramatic” and “unprecedented” decision, that establishes “a policy of planning that sees preservation of heritage a value equal in importance to the urgent need for housing units and development.”

Yuval Peled, who heads the Development Section in the Nature and Parks Authority, also congratulated the District Committee for its decision, which “will enable future generations to feel the past in the scenery of the present, and to understand the setting of the historical story of the battle of David and Goliath, a battle that has historical significance for the nation in Zion and the entire world.”
