But if we establish the working hypothesis that the UFOs are machines, we also have to assume the following: a) They are not built by human beings.. b) They are flying by means of artificial fields of gravity.. c) They produce high-tension electric charges in order to push the air out of their paths, so it does not start glowing, and strong magnetic fields to influence the ionized air at higher altitudes.
May there not be methods of using explosive energy incomparably more intense than anything heretofore discovered? Might not a bomb no bigger than an orange be found to possess a secret power to destroy a whole block of buildings-nay, to concentrate the force of a thousand tons of cordite and blast a township at a stroke? Could not explosives even of the existing type be guided automatically in flying machines by wireless or other rays, without a human pilot, in ceaseless procession upon a hostile city, arsenal, camp or dockyard?
I met a solid rowing friend and asked about the Race. How fared it with the wind, I said, When stroke increased the pace? You swung it forward mightily, you heaved it greatly back. Your muscles rose in knotted lumps, I almost heard the crack. And while we roared and rattled too, your eyes were fixed like glue. What thoughtwent flying through your mind, how fared it, Five, with you? But Five made answer solemnly, I heard them fire a gun, No other mortal thing I heard until the Race was done.
The new millennium sucks! What a disappointment! What’s the difference between the old millennium and the new millennium? Nothing! It’s the same load of crap with a ‘2’ in the front. When I was a kid, I am old enough so that when I was a kid, I looked forward to the new millennium. When I was young, I said, ‘I’m gonna live through a change! A massive change! Things are gonna be different! Things are gonna be great!’ Screwed again! No flying cars! No flying cars!
Watching the Dallas Cowboys perform, it is not difficult to believe that coach Tom Landry flew fourengines bombers during World War II. He was in B17 Flying Fortresses out of England, they say. His cautious, conservative approach to every situation and the complexity of the plays he sends in do seem to reflect the philosophy of a pilot trained to doggedly press on according to plans laid down before takeoff. I sometimes wonder how the Cowboys would have fared all this years had Tom flown fighters in combat situations which dictated continuously changing tactics.
The Russians have been flying long duration crews since the early ’70’s. And in the early days, they’ve ended at least two missions early because of conflicts within the crew. So, they learned early on the importance of studying this and making sure you put the right crew together. Since we began our work together on the International Space station with the Russians in the early 2000’s, NASA has started to learn the importance of this kind of work. And so, I think it’s important work and we are not fully onboard and recognize it as important.
Workers must root out the idea that by keeping the results of their labors to themselves a fortune will be assured to them. Patent fees are so much wasted money. The flying machine of the future will not be born fully fledged and capable of a flight for 1,000 miles or so. Like everything else it must be evolved gradually. The first difficulty is to get a thing that will fly at all. When this is made, a full description should be published as an aid to others. Excellence of design and workmanship will always defy competition.
I was an eight-year-old kid when I watched the first Apollo Moon Landing way back in 1969 and there was something about that moment that really stuck in my head. I’d always been interested in space and flying and I was building model rockets and model airplanes, but something about that moment, I can remember like it was yesterday watching the Apollo Lunar Lander approach the surface of the Moon and then later watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin take the first steps on the Moon, and something that day started the dream for me that, hey, I want to be like those guys.
One of the things, and the most exciting, actually definitely the most exciting thing is, having children. You know, I didn’t have children before. I had been married only a year before my space station mission, so having three-year-olds is a whole new experience and that’s the new adventure. It may sound funny because people have kids every day, but having your own kids, having my own kids, was as fundamentally, or maybe even more fundamentally life changing then even flying in space.
