Alien spaceships can be traced using Gamma Ray telescopes

A rather broad and often controversial topic in the scientific community is whether there is an advanced alien civilization or not. Either way, there are scientists who actively seek signs to show that intelligent life exists out there. In this way, they discovered something very interesting that gave rise to an idea. Now scientists say they can track down alien spaceships using gamma ray telescopes

This idea is considered rather strange. This suggests that a civilization, which is probably much older and more advanced than any human being, could exploit the radiation emitted by black holes (also known as Hawking radiation) to generate energy that could potentially be used in spacecraft.

Now Dr. Louis Crane, a mathematician from Kansas State University (KSU), has recently published a study on this idea. He suggested that research using gamma telescopes could find evidence of spacecraft powered by small black holes, or rather antimatter particles. The study, which is called “Search for extraterrestrial civilizations using gamma ray telescopes” ( Searching for Extraterrestrial Civilizations Using gamma-ray Telescopes), was recently published online. This is the second article published by Dr. Crane on the subject, the first of which was co-author of Shawn Moreland (physical student graduated from KSU) and published in 2009. The first was entitled “Are Black Hole Spacecraft possible? “(‘Possible Black Hole starships’).

Is it really possible?
Having a black hole would really separate one civilization from any other. It offers extraordinary benefits. For example, if a species used a microscopic black hole, it could throw matter and extract energy, which would be incredible. Something like this could potentially solve the Earth’s fossil fuel crisis. In terms of interstellar uses, it could push an incredibly large spacecraft.

Any civilization with this technology would indicate a very high level of advancement. Given the energy requirements for creating an artificial black hole, in addition to the technical challenges associated with its use, the process would be beyond a type II civilization on the Kardashev scale, which is far more advanced than the human race. Here on Earth, there simply isn’t enough capacity to store all the energy needed to create a black hole, which is also unattainable for the economy.

Item 115

Physicist Bob Lazar who worked at Area 51 secret base said that element 115 known as Ununpentiom is activator of element 116. Element 115 is an element that is not found in our solar system, but could be present in other areas of the Universe as a supernova by-product. According to Lazar, inside an alien ship the element 115 is subjected to a neutron bombardment which produces its transmutation in the element 116 called Livermorio, much more unstable. This immediately triggers a reaction that can have two extraordinary effects. The first is to emit antimatter particles which, upon contact with other matter, disintegrate and produce a huge amount of energy, which is used in a highly efficient generator.

Even more surprising is the second effect: the creation of a wave of what is called “gravity B”, a strong gravitational field, through three devices on the base of the ships, which could be directed at will to move in space.

In summary, the consequent bombing of element 115 with protons leads to the creation of element 116 (Livermorio) which immediately decomposes and produces Antimatter. Antimatter, the same that produces a black hole or worm hole, collides with normal particles creating a huge explosion of energy, which can be used for propulsion. It is very likely that element 115 may also be the famous exotic material (warp-drive) necessary to create traversable wormholes, and has been the subject of a reference document on Defense Intelligence (DIA) recently.

NTP nuclear rocket engine will take humans to Mars in just three months

Although the romance of the peaceful atom has subsided since the mid-1960s, the idea of ​​using nuclear reactors for “civilian” purposes is still regularly returned. The new nuclear rocket engine (NRM) will deliver a man to Mars much faster than is possible now.

The danger of cosmic radiation is much more serious than the risk of infection from an accident with such an engine. The most dangerous of all the constraining vectors for projects of sending people to other bodies in the solar system is cosmic radiation. Radiation from our star and galactic rays can seriously damage the health of the mission crew. Therefore, when planning flights to Mars, engineers and scientists try to reduce travel time as much as possible.

One promising way to get to the Red Planet in just three months could be a new NTP engine. Its concept was developed and submitted to NASA by Ultra Safe Nuclear Technologies ( USNC-Tech ) from Seattle, USA. The name of the unit is simply deciphered – Nuclear Thermal Propulsion ( NTP ), that is, “thermal nuclear power plant”. The novelty differs from its previously created or invented counterparts in the most secure design.

A key component of USNC’s development is mid – grade uranium fuel “pellets”. They contain 5% to 20% of the highly reactive isotope U- 235 coated with zirconium carbide ceramics. This degree of enrichment lies roughly halfway between the “civilian” nuclear power plants and the military. The proprietary ceramic coating technology makes the tablets incredibly resistant to mechanical damage and extreme temperatures.

The company promises that their fuel elements are significantly superior in these parameters to those currently used at nuclear power plants. As a result, the engine will have a higher specific impulse with a lower degree of uranium enrichment than in earlier versions of NRE. In addition to the flight to Mars, among the goals of the ambitious project are other missions within the solar system. The perspectives of the concept will soon be considered by specialists from NASA and the US Department of Defense ( DoD ). Perhaps departments will even allow its commercial use by private companies.

Theoretically, NRE based on modern technologies can have a specific impulse (SR) seven times higher than that of chemical jet engines. And this is one of the key performance parameters. At the same time, unlike electric and plasma ones, the ID of a nuclear rocket engine is combined with high thrust. One of the limiting factors in the use of NRE, in addition to safety issues, are extremely high temperatures in the reactor core.

The higher the temperature of the gases flowing out of the engine, the more energy they have. And accordingly, they create traction. However, mankind has not yet come up with relatively inexpensive and safe materials that can withstand more than three thousand degrees Celsius without destruction. The solution created by USNC will operate at the limit of modern materials science (3000 ° C) and have a specific impulse twice that of the best liquid-propellant engines.

The official press release does not specify which working body will be used in NTP . Usually, in all NRE projects, the reactor core heats hydrogen, less often ammonia. But, since we are talking about a long-term mission, the creators could have chosen some other gas. Keeping liquid hydrogen on board for three months is no easy task. But you still need to invent something for the way back.

Scientist Peter Scott-Morgan is set to become “the world’s first complete cyborg”

Scientist and roboticist Peter Scott Morgan, who is using an advanced version of Stephen Hawking's communication system, built by Intel. INTEL

Two years ago scientist Peter Scott-Morgan was diagnosed with motor neuron disease, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and today he is still fighting for a new life, not just for survival.

This October, Dr. Scott-Morgan is on track to become the world’s first full-fledged cyborg, potentially giving him more years of life.

The world’s first complete cyborg

It was in 2017 that Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan (a brilliant robotics writer, scientific writer, and talented speaker) was diagnosed with degenerative motor neuron disease that ultimately paralyzed his entire body except his eyes.

The diagnosis is understandably grim, especially considering that he has only two years to live, but he has not given up the fight.

Teaming up with world-class organizations with expertise in artificial intelligence, Dr. Scott-Morgan is transforming himself into what he calls “the world’s first fully fledged cyborg.”

“And when I say ‘Cyborg’, I mean not just that some kind of payment will be implanted in me, I mean that I will become the most advanced human cybernetic organism ever created on Earth for 13.8 billion years. My body and brain will be irreversibly changed, ”says Dr. Scott-Morgan.

What does it mean to be human

According to Dr. Scott-Morgan, he will become part robot and part living organism. Moreover, the change will not be one-time, but with subsequent updates.

“I have more updates in the process than Microsoft ,” says Dr. Scott-Morgan.

AI-powered creative expression

The cyborg artist is a great example of the power of human-AI collaboration. AI uses the data that make up Peter’s digital portrait ( articles, videos, images, and social media ) and is trained to recognize key ideas, experiences, and images.

Peter will introduce a theme, AI will suggest composition, and Peter will apply images to suggest style and mood. Peter will direct the AI ​​to render a new digital image that none of them could create alone.

A unique blend of AI and human, reflects Peter’s creative and emotional self – a critical aspect of what it means to be human.

Peter 2.0

This October, Dr. Scott-Morgan will undergo what he calls the latest procedure that will transform him into “Complete Cyborg”.

October 9 he tweeted a photo of himself, writing the following:

“This is my last post as Peter 1.0. Tomorrow I will trade my vote for potentially decades of life as we complete the last medical procedure for my transition to Full Cyborg, in the month that I was told statistically I would be dead. I am not dying, I am transforming. ! Oh, how I LOVE science !!! “.

Japan has developed an inflatable scooter that weighs practically nothing

The University of Tokyo engineers have developed the Poimo inflatable electric scooter, which is created individually for each owner. It is enough to send your photo to the manufacturers – and a personal optimized model will be assembled for you.

The scooter is designed with a special program for the body size of a particular user and his specific fit. Moreover, each owner is free to make any changes to this model. If he makes any changes to the drawing, the program will automatically redesign the electric bike to maintain its strength, stability and controllability. When the model is finished and approved, it is handed over to the manufacturer.

Scooter Poimo

The scooter consists of seven separate inflatable sections that are constructed from durable fabric and sewn with straight stitch. It remains to add electronic components – in particular, a brushless motor and a lithium-ion battery. 

The finished electric scooter weighs about 9 kg and can travel at speeds up to 6 km / h (that is, slightly faster than a pedestrian). It can work for an hour on one charge.

This is how the current version of Poimo looks like in action:
