Summary:
Standing on top of a ladder several meters high, pad and pen in hand, just to count boxes? Inventories in large warehouses could soon appear quite different and proceed to take flight, in the truest sense of those words: The goal of the InventAIRy Project is to automatically localize and record existing inventories with the aid of flying robots. . . .Read Complete Report

European Commission, CORDIS
Summary:
There are many situations where it’s impossible, complicated or too time-consuming for humans to enter and carry out operations. Think of contaminated areas following a nuclear accident, or the need to erect structures such as antennae on mountain tops. These are examples of where flying robots could be used. . . .

There was a ray of hope recently for those who are looking forward to a car that’s a bit more Blade Runnery as Terrafugia’s Transition flying car made its first public flights at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. There, the Terrafugia team conducted two 20-minute flight demonstrations and also showed off the capability for the Transition’s wings to be folded up so it can be driven about like a car.

Classed as a light sports plane by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Transition is also a road-legal vehicle. . . . Read Complete Report

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) sent two letters to FBI Director Robert Mueller asking for the agency to explain its domestic drone program as well as the policies behind it. Assistant Director for the Office of Congressional Affairs, Stephen Kelly, responded to the lawmaker’s request saying that “every request to use UAV’s must be approved by senior FBI management and without a warrant the FBI will not use a UAV.” Also on Friday, the Federal Aviation Administration approved drones to be used for civilian use, and RT speaks with Michael Brooks, producer of The Majority Report, about drones.

Retro ~ October 17, 2012 : Government Releases More Declassified Flying Saucer Docs

From Popular Mechanics  October 17, 2012 at 4:25:00 PM by Joe Pappalardo

The staff at the National Declassification Center in College Park, Md., knew they found something interesting when they cracked open a cardboard box and saw cutaway schematics of flying saucers printed on the pages. The pages describe an Air Force flying saucer program that started in the mid-1950’s and ended in 1961. In the upper right hand of each page was the icon of a flying disc stamped over a red arrow, the insignia of Project 1794.

Last week, the NDC staff released a summary report from the project, dated 1956, and the global media went into a frenzy. The documents related to a flying saucer program by a Canadian firm, Avro Aircraft, that the U.S. military funded. Back then, the Air Force wanted a supersonic fighter while the Army wanted a flying jeep. In the end, after $10 million, the saucer was nothing more than a glorified, 18-ft-diameter hovercraft that lost control and stability after it rose above its 5 foot cushion of air. (It’s never a good idea to build an aircraft with an aerodynamic center far from its center of gravity.) . . . Read Complete Report w/link to complete Project 1794 file.

A recent survey of biology professors in large universities in the western United States turned up something interesting. Even though less than 2% of the professors responded to the questions about living pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea, the average confidence those few professors gave to the possibility of living pterosaurs was 1.5%.

So why is it so interesting that biology professors would rate the probability at 1.5%? Those who responded were ignorant of the research and expeditions in Papua New Guinea. If they had been knowledgeable, they might have given it a much higher rating.

New systems could improve the vision of micro aerial vehicles

By RACHEL COURTLAND  /  APRIL 2013

Aerial robotics research has brought us flapping hummingbirdsseagulls,bumblebees, and dragonflies. But if these robots are to do anything more than bear a passing resemblance to their animal models, there is one thing they’ll definitely need: better vision.

In February, at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco, two teams presented new work (PDF) aimed at building better-performing and lower-power vision systems that would help aerial robots navigate and aid them in identifying objects.

ScienceDaily (Aug. 29, 2012) — University of Alberta researchers found evidence that a feathered, but flightless dinosaur was able to snag and consume small flying dinosaurs.

The U of A paleontology team found the fossilized remains of three flying dinosaurs in the belly of a raptor-like predator called Sinocalliopteryx.Sinocalliopteryx was about two meters in length and roughly the size of a modern-day wolf. . . . Read Complete Report

New Research Points to Dinosaurs’ Colorful Past.

There’s new evidence that dinosaurs, once thought to resemble scaly lizards, were in fact fluffy, colorful animals. Curator Mark Norell, who is chair of the Museum’s Division of Paleontology and studies important feathered dinosaurs from Liaoning, China, shares his thoughts on the significance of two new studies about fossilized feathers reported in the current issue of Science magazine. . . .

Mystery of Ancient Carvings and Sculptures Depicting Dinosaurs

Evidences for Giant Reptiles in the age of Man – Did remnants of the Dinosaur exist when our ancient ancestors did? If so, how can this be reconciled with history? There are archaeological artifacts that clearly show animals that we now view as being dinosaurs – clearly nothing that should have existed sometime within the last 12 thousand years.

 

In 2003 when I bought the Kolbrin from a book store in New Zealand (and I can almost guarantee I was one of the few to own it, at first) I read through every page and studied it. Both the philosophical aspects, planet x and I searched for paralells between other texts in various forms. One of the things that struck me, was this passage:

 EGYPTIAN TEXTS 

GLEANINGS:3:5

“In olden times, there were spawned great monsters and beasts in fearful form, with frightful gnashing teeth and long ripping claws; an elephant was but a rat in comparison with them. Then, because of heavenly rebellion and turmoil, and the terror overwhelming the hearts of men, The Great One hardened the face of the land, which had become unstable, and the beasts were changed to stone. This was beforetimes, when the Destroyer still slumbered in the upper vaults of Heaven.” . . . Read Complete Report w/ photo spread
