Paul A. LaViolette On Electrogravitic Propulsion

What saddens me is that most of those technologies are explainable by ordinary physical phenomina that are taught in the colleges. The problem is (1) that tinkerers don't know how to explain their inventions and (2) that the patent office represses the development of new technologies. The USA is doomed, simply DOOMED, because it can't pull it's head out of it's ass and live in reality. Many potential businesses and new technologies, the entire stock market is suffering because of the federal patent office, but on the other hand there are companies like Microsoft that are benifitting greatly. To no gain though, I would believe that Microsoft won IN SPITE of the patent office, etc. In fact, many companies survive IN SPITE of the environmental and safety regulations that drive their labor and development overseas. America prospers IN SPITE of the national debt, although if it weren't for big government classifying things as threats or frauds, then who knows? I say let freedom ring and down with all our complicated beaurocratic system that only serves to stifle creativity, the natural creativity that has built up our nation in the first place.

Anyhow, I've got my notes on how to explain each of those points discussed in the video from a traditional scientific perspective, and I can't bring myself to see why the patent office doesn't help inventers and tinkerers at all. (Note: I also hate paying for research and think it all should be in the public domain, I'm about progressing technology, not about repressing it so people can make their fortunes) I'll point you to some effects that might be helpful though:

Gas in a high temperature-pressure shock wave dissociates into ions - this can thereby be used as propulsion and lift by the coulomb force by inducing a voltage on the leading or trailing edge of a wing

Maser propelled lightcraft, perhaps with ionizing effects adding additional propulsion

Coulombs law works in a vacuum or in an atmosphere

Does the information travel faster than the speed of a vacuum?

What is wrong with the supercollider research?

Isn't the Antarctic sea ice growing at a faster rate than the Arctic Ice is receding? Perhaps the hole in the ozone layer down there was caused by atomic bomb research as opposed to CFC and methane emissions?

Good comment and interesting questions...=)

Hmmmm, after doing some research on the subject of nuclear testing in the Antarctic regions, the following were the only things I could find that were sufficiently close:

Operation Argus (US 1958)....well, interesting, very interesting.

Then there is this on The Vela Incident (September 1979, Bouvet Island)....perhaps this was a top secret way for the US to use Isreal to get around the Test Ban Treaty?

South Africa too

....sorry about being harsh, I've just got, uh, a little patent envy is all.
