FIRST LOOK - STAR TREK DISCOVERY

The season has been extended from 13 to 15 episodes. And there will be a post-episode chat show “Talking Trek” as well!

Dr. Tesla Discussing The Ether Space Wave Theory

“It was evident to me that wireless transmission of energy, if it could ever be accomplished, is not an invention; it is an art. Bell’s telephone, Edison’s phonograph, or my induction motor were inventions, but the wireless transmission of energy is an art that requires a great many inventions in combination.

“We are living on a planet that is rushing through space; this planet is partly conducting and partly insulating. If it were all conducting, or if it were all insulating, we could not transmit energy without wire. It is only because it is partly conducting and partly insulating that a glorious future for man is reserved through the application of this art.”

–Nikola Tesla

(From a pre-hearing interview with Nikola Tesla and his legal counsel in 1916 to protect his radio patents from the Guglielmo Marconi and the Marconi Company.)

[Fig. 1]:
“We are living on a planet of well-nigh inconceivable dimensions, surrounded by a layer of insulating air above which is a rarefied and conducting atmosphere. This is providential, for if all the air were conducting the transmission of electrical energy thru the natural media would be impossible.” –NT

[Fig. 2]:
“My early experiments have shown that currents of high frequency and great tension readily pass thru an atmosphere but moderately rarefied, so that the insulating stratum is reduced to a small thickness as will be evident by inspection of [Fig. 2], in which a part of the earth and its gaseous envelope is shown to scale. If the radius of the sphere is 12½”, then the non-conducting layer is only 1/64″ thick and it will be obvious that the Hertzian rays cannot traverse so thin a crack between two conducting surfaces for any considerable distance, without being absorbed.” –NT

Why ‘Planet Earth II’ is required viewing now more than ever

  • Since the last Planet Earth series aired, we’ve had to face a tremendous amount of discouraging news on the environmental front.
  • We’ve seen several international climate-change accords come and go without much consequence;
  • We’ve lived through three of the hottest years on record back-to-back-to-back
  • And we’re witnessing the rise of a president who believes climate change — alongside his tie line — is manufactured in China.
  • The stakes have been raised, and the tone of Planet Earth II has taken on a gravity to match them. Read more

Go where ever it is you want to go. Travel to the places you feel calling to you. You don’t have to experience every nook and cranny on the planet, but know that each and every one is open for you to see and appreciate.

A hunter in Montana accidentally discovered a prehistoric sea monster

  • Seven years after an elk hunter accidentally stumbled on a fossil in Montana’s Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge, the new species he found by mistake has a name — Nakonanectes bradti.
  • “Nakonanectes” is to honor the native Nakona people of Montana, and “bradti” is after David Bradt, the hunter who discovered the fossil, according to a statement from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
  • When Bradt first discovered the fossil in a stream in 2010, he believed it was from a dinosaur. “It’s about the size of a cow, and I’m thinking it’s a triceratops,” he told the Associated Press.
  • But when paleontologists excavated and studied the fossil, it turned out it belonged to a prehistoric sea creature that lived in an inland sea east of the Rocky Mountains some 70 million years ago, according to the AP. Read more (4/14/17 10:24 AM)
