Anti-Gravity. Tesla’s riddles.

I am interested of the works and life famous and strange scientist Nikola Tesla. He gave to science a number of riddles. Definitely he had got the mystery knowledge, he set a tesk that should be solved yet.
Here is fragment from The Anti-Gravity Handbookthe book by David Hatcher Childress.
What we know about ancient Indian flying vehicles comes from ancient Indian sources; written texts that have come down to us through the centuries.
“There are several types of animals which fly—birds, insects, and several mammals, such as bats and some gliders, for instance flying squirrels, oppossums, and then there are some lizards; there are also some fish which for brief periods glide through the air.

There are water animals which seem to fly through the water, such as rays, skates and some selachians. But how does the depicted object compare with these choices? All its features taken into a consideration, we have no match. Seen from above, the object obviously has no fish features, but seems to show rather explicitly mechanistic ones.
The structures just in front of the tail are strongly reminiscent of elevons (a combination of ailerons and elevators) with a slight forward curve, but they are attached to the fuselage, rather than the wings. In any case, they look more like airplane parts than like the claspers of a fish. If the two prominent spirals on the wings are supposed to be a stylized version of the eyes of a ray, then what are the two globular objects positioned on the head supposed to represent? To complicate the identification even more, the spirals on the wings have their copies positioned on the nose of the object, in the opposite direction. When the object is viewed in profile, the didsimilarity to anything from the animal kingdom is even more pronounced. If the zoomorphic explanation is supposed to hold, then why did the artist cut the head off almost three quarters from the body? And why is the nose is practically rectangular and the cut tilted forward, with eyes positioned at either side, when fish eyes are usually more near the center of bodyline and far forward on the head?

What we can make of the semicircular grooves on the inside of the cut? What is it supposed to be—fishwise? And what about the scoop, forward and under the cut? It is a scoop, not just a ridge for drilling a hole through to place the object on a necklace chain. Then there is another rectangular feature, positioned further back at the approximate center of gravity under the fuselage. The wings when viewed from the side are perfetly horizontal, but when seen from the front, they curve slightly downward. The elevators, which are right behind the wings, are positioned on a slightly higher horizontal level and are square-ended, thus a definite geometric shape. Above them is another rectangular shape, with a relief which may be reminiscent of knobs. The tail is equally intriguing. No fish has only a single, upright and perpendicular flange. But this tail fin has an exact shape of fins on modern airplanes. There are also some markings on the tail which are hard to identify, but it does not seem to be anything related to animals, either.”

To watch The Interenational Space Station

I have interested by the question: could I see the International Space Station with a naked eyes? It appears it’s very likely. Suffice it to visit NASA site to click there on your location (country, nearest city) and you will get opportunity to observe ISS is doing in the space.
The Satellite’s orbit is fixed with regard to the stars, so some days you have not chance to see it, but another days you will see it twice.

In this image from NASA TV the space shuttle Atlantis is shown docked to the International Space Station with the earth in the background June 18, 2007.

No more red eye.

Good news – Kodak’s New Sensor May Eliminate Flash
Coud do Imagine, there is no red eye any more. Only green, brown, blue or blach humane eyes on the pictures. I hope from now we would not be in an attack of nerves by looking to solve the problem of red eye, no need for a flash on a digital camera any more.

A’m not interested how it would work, I’m just happy that it would be.
