New Energy

What do you all think of this website? I heard about it last night on Coast to Coast AM, and it seems to detail quite a few new and groundbreaking energy creation techniques.

The show last night was mostly about Nikola Tesla. I particularly liked the part about his "free energy car" that used a box with vacuum tubes to tap into some sort of energy:

Sounds a bit like legend, the sort of thing one might fantasize about seeing at, say the Maker Faire or something...

Lifter Links

Here are some of the best links on Lifters that I've found, that seek to scientifically explore, experiment with, and explain Lifter propulsion.

NASA's Breakthrough Propulsion Physics lab seems to have the best official study about Lifters and what makes them function.

Jean-Louise Naudin in France is also one of the main amateur proponents in the world.

New Idea - Google Earth / Wikipedia World History Globe

After watching some history shows about ancient Greece, then playing with Google Earth to figure out where they took place, then looking at Wikipedia to learn more about the events, I suddenly had this idea:

How about a module for Google Earth where you can scroll through history, with a timeline scrollbar on one side, where you can select the start and end dates, and then Google Earth will show you how the Earth looked at the time you scroll to (and change as you scroll).

You could then get the relevant articles in layers from the relevant time period and location. That would really make history come alive! Especially if you could incorporate all the 3-D reconstructions of ancient sites into Google Earth's 3-D buildings feature (or whatever they call it).
