This is why the TR-3B is the gift that keeps on making people scream. This is supposedly a Special Access Project of the highest order. But if you look online, you find 15 different "schematics" for it, and everything from spinning mercury cores causing antigravity, to "two life sign signatures" and "reverse engineered alien technology". All of which is laughable. It's changed so much that it's not even funny.
People like to claim that the military is 50 years ahead of anything that we see, and that's how they did this. BS. The military, in some fields, is 8-10 years at best, ahead of where the civilian world is, and is behind the civilian world in others. As for reverse engineering, that's not nearly as easy as people make it out to be. There's a story that made the rounds years ago about the first two Chinese 727s. According to the story, Nixon got Boeing to sell two 727s to China, to open the doors of trade. Years later, one of the Boeing higher ups visited China, and was shown a third 727 sitting in a hangar. Externally, it was absolutely identical. But when he sat in the cockpit, and tried to move the control column, he said it would have taken a gorilla to move it. Starting from a similar technology base, they were unable to recreate a simple 727, but according to stories online, we're able to easily copy alien technology decades ahead of where we are, and capable of interstellar travel.
