UFO Dogfight Veteran Talks
A U.S. fighter pilot who was scrambled to shoot down a UFO over England in 1957 has now talked publicly to the press about his experience. In an interview with Sarasota, Florida’s HeraldTribune (HeraldTribune.com), Milton Torres, says the craft he spotted “didn’t follow classic Newtonian mechanics.”
Torres story first came to light last fall when the British Ministry of Defense released it, as part a large public document dump of old UFO files.
Torres, now retired from the Air Force, says the craft he was chasing, “made a right turn almost on a dime. And after two sweeps [of his radar], which took two seconds, it was gone. And I was flying almost at Mach 1 at .92.”
Afterward, Torres says he was bullied into silence. Since then he has obtained a doctorate in mechanical engineering and has served as a college instructor, but he has not forgotten the episode. He told the HeraldTribune he hopes the U.S. government will soon declassify its UFO files. “This has gone on for too long,” he said.
Steorn Releases “Orbo” Technology
Steorn, the upstart Irish engineering company that claimed, almost three years ago, to know how to extract useable power from magnets is back in the news. Apparently undaunted by recent negative publicity, the company has unveiled the first of what it says will be a whole series of technologies call Orbo.
In August 2006 the company caused worldwide consternation by running a full page ad in The Economist claiming to be able to produce clean free energy from magnets. The company invited experts from around the world to participate in a series of tests to determine the validity of its approach. The outcome of those tests is yet to be announced. In July, 2007, a planned public demonstration of the technology at the Kinetica Museum in London failed because of “technical difficulties.”
Undeterred though, Steorn CEO Sean McCarthy says the company is now ready to market Orbo to engineering firms around the world, which would, it is hoped, figure out ways to harness the technology in many different applications.
ZERO POINT ENERGY PATENT AWARDED
Zero Point energy may have arrived—almost. A new patent granted to Jovian, a Boulder, Colorado corporation, is for a device designed to extract energy from space itself. If it works, it would be the Holy Grail of free energy research. Commercial development for a similar technology is already underway in Cranbury, New Jersey at BlackLight Power corporation.
One proposed version of the Colorado device, it is said, would generate from a sugar-cube-sized device, up to 21.5 kilowatts of heat—half of which could be converted to electricity. The company has been funded and plans more experiments with the hope ultimately of creating a full scale energy harvesting system.
Dr. Garret Moddel, Professor in Colorado University-Boulder’s Department of Electrical Engineering is inventor of the Colorado technology which utilizes what are called Casimir Channels. It is based on papers published in the journal Physical Review by Hal Puthoff in 1987 and Timothy Boyer in 1975. Though the principles have been demonstrated, the device has not been fully proven yet, but the potential rewards are seen as well worth the substantial investment required.
