Artificial ionosphere creates bullseye in the sky

• November, 2009

HAARP: Artificial ionosphere creates bullseye in the sky Naomi Lubick Auroral experiments make glowing plasma patch An experiment that fires powerful radio waves into the sky has created a patch of ‘artificial ionosphere’, mimicking the uppermost portion of Earth’s atmosphere. The research has not only caused glowing dots to appear around these patches — it could also provide a new way to bounce radio signals around the globe.

Robots Trained To Fire On People By David Mantey, Editor, PD&D It’s a Star Wars dream or nightmare depending on whom you side with. Personally, I’m going to have to side against anything proihuman annihilation. But it seems like the dark side always has the more advanced weaponry. Among the many calls for action by the panel of industry experts August 5 at NIWeek in Austin, TX, a few tidbits of info caught my attention and caused spastic Terminator-esque doomsday scenarios in my mind. I

Mysterious Tubular Clouds Defy Explanation

Mysterious Tubular Clouds Defy Explanation By Betsy Mason August 24, 2009 These long, crazy-looking clouds can grow to be 600 miles long and can move at up to 35 miles per hour, causing problems for aircraft even on windless days. Known as Morning Glory clouds, they appear every fall over Burketown, Queensland, Australia, a remote town with fewer than 200 residents. A small number of pilots and tourists travel there each year in hopes of “cloud surfing” with the mysterious phenomenon. Similar tubular shaped clouds

Scientists ‘reverse ageing process’

• October, 2009

Scientists ‘reverse ageing process’ A way to reverse ageing has been discovered which allows withered muscle to rebuild itself by turning back a “biological clock”. The effect has already been demonstrated on human muscle tissue in the laboratory. Scientists in the US believe the breakthrough could lead to new treatments that rejuvenate and strengthen ageing bodies or combat degenerative diseases. Their findings also underline the importance of staying active for older people, since this reduced age-related muscle loss. Professor Irina Conboy, from the University of

China weather “magic” conjures blue sky for parade BEIJING (Reuters) China’s air force deployed a “magic-like” range of chemicals and technology to clear Beijing’s smoggy air for a grand parade marking the 60th anniversary of Communist China. Chemists and officials worked for weeks on the country’s most ambitious ever attempt at weather modification, with air force technicians fanning out across the region to help teams operate complex equipment, the official Xinhua agency said. The evening before the parade chemicals were fired into the hazy skies,

Airplane Built To Launch Spaceships Flies

Airplane Built To Launch Spaceships Flies: Todd Richmond, Associated Press, July 28, 2009 Hundreds of earthlings turned their faces to the sky Monday to see an airplane built to launch a ship into space, watching the gleaming white craft soar overhead. The twin-fuselage craft named WhiteKnightTwo, looking like two planes connected at the wing tips, circled the runway several times before touching down at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Air Venture annual gathering. It was the first glimpse the public had of the plane, which was
