Thats because for seventy years there has been a very effective smoke screen disinformation project that has been operating... I think that Nick Cook called it an " elegantly orchestrated plan" to hide away what was actually happening. But things are changing and now I believe that the time is right for more disclosures.... because we can not move into the future blind. We have to see and understand what our real experiences have been.

I believe that Townsend Brown was involved actively in keeping certain information out of the publics eye. I think that he believed that it was not a safe age in the fifties to the eighties to see these new avenues of information to break the surface... but at some point we have to step forward. I believe that speakers like Linda Moulton Howe and others will be leading the movement and men like my Dad have left enough information behind or intelligent and passionate investigative reporters to put the missing puzzle pieces back together. Its going to be an exciting time.

I intend to put my efforts toward the direction of a better and full understanding of the Biefeld Brown Effect and of the historical interactions between another intelligence and that of my father... who first encountered that strange force on Catalina Island when he was just a teenager. Its a consideration that hasn't been investigated before.

Colossal rocket-launching plane rolls toward testing

The Stratolaunch plane is pushed out of the hanger for the first time in the Mojave desert, California on May 31, 2017

A colossal aircraft capable of launching satellite-toting rockets into space is closer to testing, having been rolled out of a hangar in the desert, its creators said on Wednesday.

The project backed by billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has been proceeding for about six years and was on track for its first launch demonstration as early as 2019, Stratolaunch Systems Corporation chief executive Jean Floyd said in a blog post.

"This marks a historic step in our work to achieve Paul G. Allen's vision of normalizing access to low Earth orbit," Floyd said.

"This is a first-of-its-kind aircraft, so we're going to be diligent throughout testing."

In the weeks and months ahead, Stratolaunch—touted as the biggest airliner ever built—will be testing fuel systems, engines and more on the ground at its air and space port in the Mojave desert, according to Floyd.
Support structures were removed from the plane during the past few weeks, allowing it to rest on its 28 wheels for the first time.

The Stratolaunch aircraft weighed in at 500,000 pounds (226,796 kilograms) and has the world's largest plane wingspan, measuring 385 feet (117 meters), according to the company.
The aircraft is 238 feet from nose to end, and it is 50 feet from the ground to the tip of its vertical tail.

When the ambitious venture was launched some six years ago by philanthropist Allen, partners in the project vowed it would revolutionize orbital travel in the post-space shuttle era.
Using huge passenger jet engines, it would tote a rocket and be able to launch payloads, satellites and someday humans into low-Earth orbit, Allen said at the time.

Allen vowed that the project would result in greater flexibility than ground-based rocket launches and better cost effectiveness for cargo and human missions to space.
Private space travel is also among the big visions of tech industry star Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX as well as electric car company Tesla.

SpaceX is poised to blast off its next delivery of food, supplies and science experiments to astronauts living at the International Space Station on Thursday.
The launch of SpaceX's 11th commercial resupply mission aboard an unmanned Dragon cargo ship is scheduled for 5:55 pm (2155 GMT).
If all goes as planned, a Falcon 9 rocket will propel the Dragon into low-Earth orbit, where it will eventually connect with the space station, circling the Earth at a height of some 250 miles (400 kilometers).

Researchers experiment with geometric factors to maximize plasma jet length

Bursts of plasma, called plasma jets, have numerous uses ranging from the development of more efficient engines, which could one day send spacecraft to Mars, to industrial uses like spraying nanomaterial coatings on 3-D objects.

Capillary discharge plasma jets are those that are created by a large current that passes through a low-density gas in what is called a capillary chamber. The gas ionizes and turns into plasma, a mixture of electrons and positively charged ions. When plasma expands in the capillary chamber due to arc energy heating, plasma ejects from the capillary nozzle forming the plasma jet.

This week in Review of Scientific Instruments, a new study examines how the dimensions of the capillary producing the plasma affect the jet's length. Researchers at Huazhong University of Science and Technology found that they could achieve the longest plasma jet by altering the dimensions to maximize the energy density within the capillary chamber.

"Experimental results show that the longest plasma jet length can be obtained by adjusting the geometric factors," said Jiaming Xiong, from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology and one of the authors. "Capillary plasma jets have a wide range of applications and the length of the plasma jet is an important characteristic parameter."

Previous studies in this area have focused on the formation of the plasma jet and numerical simulations of the capillary discharge plasma, but few researchers have looked at how the structure of the capillary influences the size of the plasma jet.

Xiong and the group of researchers set up their capillary plasma jet under normal atmospheric pressure with a camera to photograph the plasma jet's length. The capillary system consists of a pin electrode for the negatively charged cathode side of the current supplying device, and a plate electrode for the positively charged anode. An insulating wall surrounds the cathode, creating a chamber where the gas ionizes when they apply a trigger pulse.

The plasma ejected through a cone-shaped nozzle within the anode of the capillary chamber. By varying the length of the capillary chamber, the diameter of the cathode and the length of the cathode tip, the researchers determined the best proportions to generate the longest jet.

The study suggests that the dimensions offering the greatest energy density inside the chamber will yield the longest plasma jet. As length of the capillary increases, the energy deposited in the arc channel increases as well, but only up to a point. Thus, there is an optimum chamber length to maximize the energy density in the capillary chamber.

Additionally, they showed that increasing the cathode diameter and the cathode tip length shortens the plasma jet, because these changes reduce the energy deposited in the arc channel. In their next study, the researchers will use combinations of different pulse discharge circuits and discharge energies to see how these factors impact the plasma jet length.

Electrified Droplets Create Mini Saturn Planets

By electrifying tiny drops of fluid, scientists have created miniature versions of the ringed planet Saturn.

Though gorgeous to look at, the resulting "planet" has more than aesthetic value: The achievement could help lead to new ways of generating microscopic and uniform particles and capsules often used in products such as drugs, inks, cosmetics, paints and ceramics, researchers said.

When a drop of electrically conductive liquid is exposed to an electric field, the droplet responds by forming two electrically charged poles. Previous research has shown that these poles can get pulled toward the sources of the electric field, taking on cone shapes. If the pull is strong enough, the tips of the cones can spray jets of droplets. [Dazzling Droplets: Photos Reveal Mini Worlds]

Experiments regarding this effect, known as electrospraying, often involved drops of liquid surrounded by less electrically conductive fluids. In the new study, senior author Petia Vlahovska, an engineer at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and colleagues wanted to explore what happens when drops of liquid are submerged in more electrically conductive fluids — specifically, drops of silicone oil suspended in castor oil.

Previous research found that when a drop that is more electrically conductive than its surroundings gets caught between two electrified plates, its poles take on the opposite electric charge of those plates. When it comes to electricity, opposites attract, so the poles of the droplet get pulled outward (toward the plates) to become cones, with the drop taking on a football shape.

These new findings reveal that when a drop is less electrically conductive than its surroundings, its poles take on an electric charge that is the same as the electrodes (the electrified plates). Since like repels like, "the repulsion between the electrodes and the poles squashes the drop into [an] M&M-like shape," Vlahovska told Live Science.

If an electric field is strong enough, the researchers found that the equators of these squashed drops emit concentric rings of droplets, making the drops look like miniature versions of Saturn. In experiments, drops of silicone oil about 1 millimeter wide generated droplets that were about 100 times smaller, Vlahovska said.

"I was surprised by the fact that rings detached from the drop — I was not expecting it all," Vlahovska said.

Vlahovska noted they could generate rings in a very controllable way. "You can turn the streaming on and off at will," she said.

Future research will explore what materials can be used to produce this "ring of particles" effect. "The broader the range of materials, the wider the applications will be," Vlahovska said.

Vlahovska and her co-author Quentin Brosseau at New York University are scheduled to detail their findings online July 20 in the journal Physical Review Letters.

New Theory on the Origin of Dark Matter
Press Release - Source: Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz

Only a small part of the universe consists of visible matter. By far the largest part is invisible and consists of dark matter and dark energy.

Very little is known about dark energy, but there are many theories and experiments on the existence of dark matter designed to find these as yet unknown particles. Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) in Germany have now come up with a new theory on how dark matter may have been formed shortly after the origin of the universe. This new model proposes an alternative to the WIMP paradigm that is the subject of various experiments in current research.

Dark matter is present throughout the universe, forming galaxies and the largest known structures in the cosmos. It makes up around 23 percent of our universe, whereas the particles visible to us that make up the stars, planets, and even life on Earth represent only about four percent of it. The current assumption is that dark matter is a cosmological relic that has essentially remained stable since its creation. "We have called this assumption into question, showing that at the beginning of the universe dark matter may have been unstable," explained Dr. Michael Baker from the Theoretical High Energy Physics (THEP) group at the JGU Institute of Physics. This instability also indicates the existence of a new mechanism that explains the observed quantity of dark matter in the cosmos.

The stability of dark matter is usually explained by a symmetry principle. However, in their paper, Dr. Michael Baker and Prof. Joachim Kopp demonstrate that the universe may have gone through a phase during which this symmetry was broken. This would mean that it is possible for the hypothetical dark matter particle to decay. During the electroweak phase transition, the symmetry that stabilizes dark matter would have been re-established, enabling it to continue to exist in the universe to the present day.

With their new theory, Baker and Kopp have introduced a new principle into the debate about the nature of dark matter that offers an alternative to the widely accepted WIMP theory. Up to now, WIMPs, or weakly interacting massive particles, have been regarded as the most likely components of dark matter, and experiments involving heavily shielded underground detectors have been carried out to look for them. "The absence of any convincing signals caused us to start looking for alternatives to the WIMP paradigm," said Kopp.

The two physicists claim that the new mechanism they propose may be connected with the apparent imbalance between matter and antimatter in the cosmos and could leave an imprint which would be detected in future experiments on gravitational waves. In their paper published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters, Baker and Kopp also indicate the prospects of finding proof of their new principle at CERN's LHC particle accelerator and other experimental facilities.

Light forces electrons to follow the curve

An exotic phenomenon usually associated with high magnetic fields can be achieved without a magnetic field, according to theoretical predictions by researchers from A*STAR and the United States. Their analysis could open the path to a novel type of optoelectronic device operating at long wavelengths.

A charged particle in an electric field experiences a force that drives it along the direction of the field, creating a current. The moving particle can also experience a force perpendicular to its motion. This can happen in the presence of a magnetic field for example, and can lead to a range of unusual properties, particularly when the perpendicular component dominates and the electron starts to follow a skewed trajectory. But this so-called Hall regime often requires large magnetic fields which are impractical for real devices.

Justin Song from the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing, working with his colleague Mikhail Kats from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, have theoretically predicted that an unusual Hall-type motion can be harnessed at room temperature and without a magnetic field in a new class of materials known as gapped Dirac materials1. "Dirac materials are semi-metals because of their material symmetries," explains Song. "Narrow-gapped Dirac materials gently break these symmetries, opening up small bandgaps."

The alternative route to a Hall effect investigated by Song and Kats is based on so-called 'valleys' in these gapped Dirac materials. A valley, in the context of the electronic band structure of a material, is a minimum into which electrons can settle. If there are two valleys with identical energy, the electrons in each of the valleys of gapped Dirac materials feature contrasting trajectories.

Song and Kats exploited this contrast by inducing an imbalance of electrons in one valley over the other via circularly polarized light illumination. They revealed a photo-induced Hall effect (Hall photoconductivity) with strength determined heavily by the wavelength of the light, increasing by a factor of up to one million when switching from visible light to the far infrared.

This means that gapped Dirac materials with a smaller electronic bandgap, such as graphene–boron-nitride heterostructures, are more effective than those with a larger bandgap including molybdenum disulfide.
This phenomenon could be useful for the development of novel far infrared and terahertz optoelectronics. "A particularly tantalizing prospect is a new type of photodetector concept that measures the Hall current in these gapped Dirac materials," says Song. "Such a photodetector could potentially possess zero net dark current even with a large bias voltage."

A copy of Roger Babson's 1921 "Making Good In Business" -- owned by Thomas Edison and with his own annotations on the pages!

Signed on the flyleaf by Babson:

"To Thomas Edison - a man who has made good. With best wishes from Roger Babson, Oct 25, 1921"

in another hand:

"Inscribed to Thomas Edison with 14 pages annotated in Edison's hand".

Card from "Upsala College Library"

It's scanned and is up on the Internet Archive. Digitised this year.

It *probably* doesn't hold the secrets to time and gravity (or using sidereal radiation to beat the stock market) but who knows, right?

https://archive.org/details/makinggoodinbusi0000roge

Glancing through it, it seems Edison... really, really hated religion. Most of his (angry) interjections are on the pages where Babson waxes Biblical.

So good to see your post Nate.

Not believing in any type of religion was where I think that I had the most problems with the man who finally got my consent to write Dads biography. I should have known that Paul Schatskin would not be able to understand my Dads over riding belief that there was indeed some sort of Creator... Creative force... even though he was very careful never to try to force it into a description or name. Paul just could not make that leap. Not even to try to understand. Then of course when we ventured into some really strange mental countryside his response to me that it was all a bunch of " Mystical Bullshit... Elitist mystical bullshit at that". I think I knew when I read that from Paul that he would not have the strength or the fortitude to follow through properly on the book.

I continued to hope that he would somehow be able to sprout wings and learn to fly....but alas.

I am still taking some time away from my writing. Devoting my energies right now to the remodeling of our house... seems to be going on forever but I do see some constructive changes and its actually good to be able to see the progress every day.

I am pleased with the progress also of the rewrite. My partner finally in all of this has been able to step forward and give me some information for me to research but frankly... at the moment... I do not have the strength to put my mental energies in that direction. I know I will be able to build up a head of steam and be able to shove off in that direction soon, but right now.... painting and building walls just seems simpler somehow and more gratifying. I figure the information that he has mentioned has been hidden for years and years.... it can wait a few more months. I am beginning to take care of myself just a little better... with his help... we are in this for the long haul and we intend to go the distance.

Thank you all for being patient with me. Its going to be an exciting Fall....
