“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity….. anything you can imagine we already know how to do.”

Ben Rich, former Head of the Lockheed Skunk Works, in a lecture shortly before he died


can anyone verify if this is actually something he said?

Not sure about all of that, but I do know he said this....


"Once a program is classified secret it takes an act of God to declassify it.

and this

"I would strongly advocate reviews every two years of existing black programs either to declassify them or eliminate them entirely. We could save millions in the process."


And this.....

Also in Skunk Works, Ben Rich recalls the first patent that he earned as a young engineer.
It was "for designing a Nichrome wire to wrap around and electrically heat the urine-elimination tube used on Navy patrol planes. Crewmen complained that on freezing winter days their penises were sticking painfully to the metal funnel. My design solved their problem and I'm sure made me their unknown hero."

In my very humble opinion, the answer would be no. I do not think so.

Isn't that quote from Serpo.org?

We do travel among the stars, aren't we?

I retract my last post, I just listened to something on the raidio about him and they just repeated him saying that exact quote at some tech convention in california. Sorry, no link at this time.

I remember hearing someone say something very similiar, if not exact. It was a first hand account of someone with credible credentials that presumibly held a position in which such knowledge would be known to him, but I do not remember who it was, or exactly where I heard it. Long story short; Sorry i can't prove it is true.


...... anything you can imagine we already know how to do.


human imagination is relative to the observer, and their acquired accepted truths.
