The Trains of the Future May Fly; It Would Save Fuel and Lots of It

Today our Nations Rail Network delivers goods and supplies to markets and raw materials to be processed. Everything from iron ore, coal to produce goes by rail too. Even trucks go by rail; you have sent them, 18-wheeler trailers piggy backing on rail cars. Do you know why? Well it is more fuel-efficient and with fuel prices up, that means efficiencies and cost savings.

But what will such transportation look like in the future? After all today we have heavy trains with lots of power caus

What Will Our Railroad Look Like in 50 Years?

Have you seen the cool pictures of high-speed trains in other countries, with their sleek bodies and capabilities of speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour? Wow. This can all be possible in the United States as well you know. In fact many companies are joining with government agencies to see this reality thru in the next 50-years.

I think you will find this subject fascinating and you may also very much enjoy reading on all the latest technologies available to make such transportation e

Designing Your Baby

Imagine if you could choose what your brother or sister would look like. Imagine if you could choose your child's eye colour, hair colour, IQ level and even his interests. Imagine a world where everyone is perfect health-wise and IQ-wise.

This all seems like a scene from a science fiction movie right? Well, all this might be possible in the near future with the advancement of Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis or PGD. PGD is a procedure where the embryo is genetically tested to be f

What if an Alien Species is Found and They are Hungry?

Many have considered the wonderful possibility or probability rather that there exists extra-terrestrial life on other Worlds out there. This will be a wonderful discovery when we make contact, perhaps using light wave communication. Only one problem with this some say; What if they are hungry, warlike and want to eat all the humans?

Well for their sake I sincerely hope they do not underestimate 100 million years of homo sapiens evolutionary development of survival and will. Because one

Acidic Ocean Battery Theories and Strategies

As the ocean becomes more acidic in places perhaps we can use the acidity to power up our cities and discharging the acidity by using it up like a battery? How so you ask? Well consider a weakened battery in your car which is old and nearly run out. It still has some juice too it and you can power up small things, maybe not enough to start your car every time, but you can turn on the dome light and such.

Well consider the ocean is very big and if it turns acidic that is very bad. But we

Acidic Rivers and Corrosion Issues

Acid Rain is a pretty big issue indeed and as the rivers, streams and fresh water lakes become more acidic not only will it take out water fowl, fish life and destroy the eco-system, but it will also cause man-made objects to corrode faster and this means underground water mains, house pipes and an assortment of other things such as dams, barges, boats, docks, stilts and diversionary channel infrastructures and drainage ditches.

How serious is this really? Well many scientists say that

Bumping and Jumping Theories in Seismic Prediction

Recently we have seen some unusual seismic activity, some flooding and some Earthquake swarms, which more resemble magma flow under the crust, in California. As this topic was being discussed recently in an online think tank one member mentioned a bumping theory. Where there were bumps, which rubbed up against each other where tectonic plates hit each other and therefore they would slow the sliding or folding under and put pressure on certain points until they finally gave way.

One thin

Water Resonance Changes; Do They Cause Earthquakes?

Many seismologists believe that large scale flooding can put more weight on the plates and thus cause Earthquakes. Many believe that huge storm surges also can do the same thing. It makes sense because water weighs a lot and when lots of it moves the plates would too right? Sure, no problems there. But what if there is even more too this; what if water resonance changes can cause changes enough to cause Earthquakes too?

Now then lets also remember that resonance changes things too. And

The Future 50-Years in Rail Road

Does anyone have any ideas what the future in railroad will be like in the united states? Will we have mag-lev high-speed trains, air-cushioned freight trains and bullet passenger trains? Well it is an interesting subject from a planning perspective and from a Futurist point of view. Part of what makes a civilization run efficiently is the flows of transportation and distribution of course.

Recently in an online think tank a participants stated; "I am proposing to determine the trend an

Using Satellite Radio Anomalies as a Defense Radar Grid for ICBM Attack

With all the satellite radio users out there and all the radio waves coming in perhaps we should use this as a background pattern like a radar grid. Thus if there is a disruption passing thru like an airliner, well we have a back up system in case our radar systems go down.

If there is an unidentified flying object, which shows up as a disruption anomaly with this field in an area, which is not a known flight path trajectory for airlines or military then we should start tracking it; bec
