Russ Breault On The Shroud of Turin

Technology is just amazing. This is an interview that Simon Brown did with Russ Breault on the Shroud of Turin via Skype. As a kid I remember the science fiction stories that had visual telephones and now we have that capability. Russ is the founder of Shroud University and an excellent speaker on the Shroud of Turin. Well worth watching.

Science Isn't Infallible And Sometimes It Isn't Even Very Reliable

Breakthrough in the form of an ultra-sound treatment for Alzheimer's

SEE HERE  Apparently you can clear out the materials that clog the brain that are thought to cause Alzheimer's disease using carefully tailored and focused ultrasound treatments.  It's had a 75% success rate in mice and is awaiting clearance for testing in higher animals and ultimately human beings by perhaps 2017.  Seems like a promising development.

Fusion Coming? We'll see of course. There are other possibilities as well.

SEE HERE  Lockheed Skunk Works reveals some fascinating work they are doing on fusion power generation with new unique architecture.  This could be awesome.  It will be interesting in the the context of other interesting power initiatives such as Thorium Reactors and LENR.

Wither Goest We? Is Scarcity Really Going To Disappear?

Spin the pipedream forward.  I have little trust in Ray Kurzweil's singularity idea.  But it's still fun to listen to the narrative.

I hope it lives up to the hype.  Looks exciting.

Cockpit of a B-36

SEE HERE  One of the biggest aircraft of all time.  Six props, four jet engines and could fly round trip to the Soviet Union without refueling.  This is a panoramic view of the cockpit using your mouse and thumbwheel to move your viewpoint.  I mainly put it up for the neat panorama.

Flying Car ... The Wave Of The Future?

Definitely cool!  Probably still a ways to go.
