Frenchman Étienne Bottineau invented the now-forgotten science that allowed ships to be seen that could not even be seen with a telescope. Bottineau’s explanation for his ability was fascinating (albeit extremely ambiguous): “Each boat produces “emanations” in the ocean. These emanations affect the transparency of the atmosphere. Therefore, meteorical effects [as he called them] are produced on the horizon and they can be seen and read by all men who know how.”
His theory states that it is possible for the trained eye to discern the approach of ships hundreds of miles away because they affect the atmosphere around them. Something very similar to the theory of the magnetic field, which states that an object affects, on an energy level, the atmospheric zone within its vicinity. Bottineau perceived those “emanations” or magnetic changes as nobody had before him, and nor has done since. Is it Remote Viewing, as BruiseMeNaught thinks? Mayhaps!
–Land Rover built an SUV that only astronauts can buy. ONLY. Land Rover has unveiled a special edition Range Rover SUV that can only be purchased by astronauts. Not from NASA, but the 600 folks and counting who have signed up to fly on Virgin Galactic’s upcoming sub-orbital flights. Land Rover is a Virgin Galactic partner, and the Astronaut Edition Range Rover features Zero Gravity Blue paint meant to evoke the night sky.
–It also has model specific logos that include the spaceflight company’s DNA of Flight graphic, which is a series of icons that starts with a bird and runs through several types of aircraft and spaceships up to Virgin’s VSS Unity that reached space last December. (Although we aren’t exactly sure WHERE space is anymore, now that Earth’s atmoplane extends twice as far as the distance to the Moon!!)
–The front cupholders of each vehicle will also be fitted with wood disks that will be swapped out with wood from the front landing skid of the actual spacecraft that its owner flew on. (Yes…a WOODEN front landing skid…because Science???)
–Exact pricing for the Range Rover has not been announced, but it’s based on the Autobiography trim that starts at $143,000. Of course, there’s also the matter of the $250,000 ticket to space you have to pay for first. Virgin Galactic is aiming to begin commercial flights by the end of the year, with company founder Richard Branson currently looking to take off on July 16th to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11.
–Conversely, Germany is opening its first electric highway for trucks. Not robuts, as would thought, but converted diesel rigs!! The robuts come later…and Maximum Overdrive!!
–Alan Holman calls in!! He tells us a bit about Europa-quakes!
One of our brothers from others, known as Baldidni, The Pantless Powerhouse, shares an amazing story today. Last Friday he was in such severe nerve pain that he was considering severe ways out of that pain, and while laying there in agony he tuned in to our little YT show Have No Sphere. We collectively...
Jumping Jeff Bozos, Batman!! What a week! What a show!! What?? A show??? We went old school, like, totally, man, let’s cruise to the arcade, then we hit the kangaroos hard, and debut a new Aussie Awesomeness segment with LC!! –Josh has become a hitman for the hawks! –Dude, what’s MINE say?? Ostrich?? –They ARE...
I’m not even sure, but thanx to Special K for the show title. We…well, WALT was off a bit today, no mic, on a phone, out of sorts. But the love from the Scouts and the Iron Injextion always helps!! EPic!! –We hear from IRON Mike himself!!! –The Hubble is broken, so is science no,...
