The secret engine technology that made the SR-71 the fastest plane ever

On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers flew the first airplane ever at 6.8 mph (10.9 km/h). Only 61 years and five days later, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird took off. It's still the world's fastest airplane with a speed of 2,193 mph (3,530 km/h.) This fascinating video reveals how its top secret engine technology works.

This Alien technology came from the Second World War. Less than 40 years after the Wright brothers monkeyed around with the "first" flying machine. That's so funny (the first flying machine). Flying machines have alway been in the skies of Earth all the way back to Adam and Eve. Oh that's funny too! Many people believe the "literal" version of Adam and Eve, but fall off their chairs in hysterical laughter when someone mentions seeing a UFO.  Don't tell me this world isn't backwards. LOL

For those people who don't remember being around during the Second World War, here is a snippet of life back then. It was a mixture of horse and buggy and supersonic aircraft. Soldiers hauled military equipment using asses (donkeys) on most military campaigns. Much of Europe was still living in the Dark Ages, literally (without electricity). Hitler turned a medieval country (Germany) into a superpower practically overnight, and nearly conquered the world. Hint, he had extraterrestrial connections. Oh get up off the floor and stop laughing hysterically you so-called intellectual crowd and show some decorum....

It's truly amazing that only 61 years and five days separate this

from this:

And it's even more unbelievable that we haven't been able to top that 51 years later (it will be exactly 51 years tomorrow—the first flight occurred on December 22, 1963.) Absolutely incredible.

"Only 61 years and 5 days later..."
Equally amazing is that Orville Wright lived to fly a large four-engine transport, a Lockheed Constellation, in 1944. Shortly before he died in 1948, Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1. Truly an amazing life.

What Is Dark Matter? New Evidence Sheds Doubt On Long-Held Beliefs About Particle Collisions

I apologize, I know most people don't give a hoot about Dark Matter and I'm always bringing it up. But I couldn't resist posting this cool picture of this fancy and way cool toy. Toy because it is fun to monkey around with, but only if you are one of the very important physicists with the special clearance to get near such a magnificent machine. Such wondrous machines are helpful to modern science and modern existence and are well worth the expense, no ifs, ands or buts about it.

I'm not picking on the technological marvel, only the theory of dark matter. I don't know how many times over the years some scientist here or there has claimed that dark matter has been confirmed (kind of), and time after time, they are still looking for it. Can we get on the same page already, after all, we are talking rocket scientists here, not sci-fi ufo nuts like me.

So they are not looking for dark matter in the quantum zone any more (where quarks, protons, muons and mufons, hide). Now they are going to look for dark matter in the massive trashbin that galaxies swim in. Yes, the universe is nothing but a monstrous landfill, where discarded planets and other debris has been piling up for billions of years, ever since the Big Bang gagged on 99% pure cosmic dust that it was snorting, and hurled out what is now known as the universe.

They will never admit to it (that such things are delusions) so me blabbering away about it is really futile. But as long as they post pretty pictures with their articles, I will keep posting the facts. Which are, there is no Dark Matter, and there never was a Big Bang. Ok, there is a Big Bang theory, a television sitcom, my wife loves that show, btw.

PS yeah, yeah, yeah, they are only doing their jobs, and no harm in looking is true. If I had a big atom smasher to play with and could smash atoms all day long, no one would hear a peep from me.

A group of internationally renowned scientists are gathering in a small Italian city to debate a picture that, if research is any indication, could forever change the way astrophysicists study dark matter. The meeting, known as Planck 2014, centers on an image that replicates what the universe looked like when it was 380,000 years old -- a time when the temperature of much of outer space was hotter that the sun.

Reasons To Mine The Moon

You would think that by now humans would be growing tomatoes on the moon (we do have the means and technology to do it, given to us by those non-existent reptilians). Ok, so a few humans are growing tomatoes on the moon. But opening up the moon to a whole lot more people would solve all the problems humans have on earth. And I seriously mean all the problems. A few years back one of the presidential candidates stated that his priority as president (if elected) would include further explorations on the moon and incentives for private enterprise to get the ball rolling in that direction. The voters spoke and didn't show any interest and didn't vote the dude into office. That sent a surefire message to the space industry (humans are not ready for space tomatoes). But they are sooo tasty! Tomatoes are tasty...the space tomatoes.

Human politics is keeping humans from mindboggling economic jackpots in space, not the reptilians, who want humans up there...for terraforming and building domed habitats to live in and for growing more tomatoes, and to snack on the tasty primates (but only occasionally, and they promise appropriate compensation to the families).  I say we go for it.  

I think I was the only one who voted for that dude, his political stuff turned many people off. Unlike the one that got the vote and the jackpot, the white house!

Who needs space exploration when you got Hollywood, and Hollywood got you... and me and Bobbie Mcgee.  

Space tomatoes messing with my head.

To date, all human economic activity has depended on the material and energy resources of a single planet; understandably, perhaps.

Are We Alone In The Milky Way?

I catch a lot of flack for being negative and condescending to the scientific realm. I blame Milton, he always comes around with a banana, he knows I'm a sucker for bananas. I never know what he is implying, perhaps he is just being nice, bringing the monkey a banana. And then he trashes my fridge, looking for god knows what.

I should embrace being a monkey, it sure gets respect, television shows, movie deals, book deals, and millions of followers. I'm slow, Milton bringing me a banana would have been hint enough for most monkeys.

Are we alone? Or is the galaxy teeming with other intelligent species? And if the latter, where the heck are they?
These are questions that have perplexed scientists for generations. And they remain open for debate.
But Brian Cox, Britain’s leading celebrity physicist (if you don’t know him, imagine a cross between Neil deGrasse Tyson and pop star Harry Styles) is convinced that we are unique, at least in the Milky Way.
“There is only one advanced technological civilization in this galaxy and there has only ever been one — and that’s us,” Professor Cox, pictured above, declared in the latest episode of his BBC series Human Universe.

Wanderers: A Stunning Short Video of Our Future in Space

The wonders of the universe are indeed waiting for humans to come and explore the endless marvels that are showcased live every night on the big screen (the night sky), which looks back down on us puzzled on why it is taking so long for humans to get back on track.

Countless humans are doing it now, exploring fantastic worlds, moons and places of cosmic enchantment, in every star system in the galaxy, and in every galaxy in the universe. Many of us here on earth have a burning yearning to go back to where we once roamed free, and taste the nectar of the stars, forevermore...
Ok, I will put down the magic mushrooms now. lol

This is one of the most wondrous and moving paeans to space exploration I have ever seen. The words of Sagan are magnificent, of course. And the effects are stunning, photo-realistic and very compelling.

Are we heading for a new 'Mass Extinction?'

They might have a point. Too bad we can't bring back the dinosaurs, they could chomp away at the human race and in no time clear this planet of the dreaded human infestation, and save Earth. It's been done before according to a new book, so there is precedent. The book is by a leading authority on the subject and is called, "Mars and the lost planet Man".

Go buy the ebook at Kindle and help save the planet. No trees will be harmed (unless you buy the paperback version).

Lou Baldin
 Five times in the history of Earth, life has been extinguished by cataclysmic events. In one of them, the K/T Extinction, a six-mile-wide asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, and in the earlier Great Dying, fallout from massive volcanic eruptions annihilated 90 percent of the Earth’s species. Could it happen again? The Smithsonian Channel special "Mass Extinction: Life at the Brink" explains why and how these catastrophes occurred, and why humans now pose a greater threat to the planet than any geological disaster.
