  1. I am happy to report, after sitting idle in Norfolk port since March due to the covid-related stoppage of all exploration operations, the good ship Okeanos Explorer has finally set out to sea once again; currently on the way to Pascagoula Mississippi for maintenance and upgrades on all drive systems plus many technology upgrades. Some of you will also be happy to learn that I will no longer have time to spend here (other than maybe an occasional visit) so have fun and don’t let the spammers bite!
  2. Maybe you don’t realize there would not even be an Internet without the "USians"? In 1965, Leonard Kleinrock, an American computer scientist working at MIT developed the mathematical theory behind packet switching; a way of sending information from one computer to another. In 1969, the US Department of Defense’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) developed ARPANET, linking four computers together. Finally, in the 1970s yet another American scientist, named Vinton Cerf, developed a way for all of the computers on all of the world’s mini-networks to communicate with one ano
  3. The motion of asymmetrically oscillating bodies in a viscous medium is interesting and there is a considerable body of research being done in this area. However, I find it difficult to justify “the idea of this method as a wave method indicates the probable possibility of using it in space as a vacuum jet engine”. Space does not come to mind when thinking of a viscous medium and I don’t see how this method can be used as a “vacuum jet engine”. Concerning “The Question of Flying Saucer Efficiency” posed in the title, as it pertains to space, my answer is “not possible”; although it can w
  4. "Why is it that flying saucer mockups always show a cockpit bulge on the top?" "aliens with big heads" Surely, a man with your incandescent wit should be able to figure this one out.
  5. Dude, I bet I have the best teeth of anyone on this forum. I really don’t want to “band” you but you have been warned about starting multiple threads on this forum about this same silly topic and each time you do so, I have to waste my time moving your nonsense to silly claims. Keep it up, and I will have no choice but to give you a nice vacation from posting here. It’s up to you, dude.
  6. While it’s not my intention to distract from the interesting twists and turns in this thread, but is it possible that this is what you saw? A weird long cloud on Mars has returned. It's right on schedule, scientists say. It seems this cloud shows up around this time of year but it is doubtful it can be spotted with the naked eye. Still, under just the right conditions maybe it’s possible?
  7. An unidentified flying object (UFO) is any aerial phenomenon that cannot immediately be identified or explained. The military is always interested in identifying any such object as it may represent some advanced surveillance aircraft from an unfriendly nation such as Russia or China. When considered in that way, Trump’s mention of US military capabilities in a discussion of UFOs is not strange at all. But I suppose the more fantasist responses to this click bait headline are to be expected.
  8. Right. In fact, it has been the democrats who have not been able to accept defeat in the 2016 presidential election and have displayed near-psychotic Trump derangement syndrome ever since. If Trump wins this year we can expect to see Nancy Pelosi and more than a few other democrats totally lose their minds.
  9. I agree. So-called permanent magnets do not have 100% retention of their magnetic fields, although they can retain their fields for a very long time. One estimate I have seen is that the permanent magnet will lose only 1% of its field strength in 100 years if left undisturbed on a shelf. However, using the magnet to magnetize other objects is not quite leaving it undisturbed. That being said, even if there were no loss in the primary magnet, that would still not violate conservation of energy. The usual explanation for the source of energy, in magnetizing a secondary magnet using a perma
  10. I can also predict the future. To prove this I now predict this thread is going to be moved to Silly Claims.
  11. A magnetic field does contain magnetic (potential) energy. Quoting from Wikipedia: The energy per unit volume in a region of space of permeability uo containing magnetic field B is: U = ½ B2/uo
  12. I do believe in the value of vaccinations, but I also agree with the importance of a healthful environment. The two approaches are not mutually exclusive but complementary.
