Source | ScienceDaily.com | Cloaking Device? Invisible Technology One Step Closer
Scientists predict that metamaterials could be of use in military technology, such as in the construction of fighter jets and submarines...
...Dr Guenneau, at the University's Department of Mathematical Science, explains: "The shape and structure of aeroplanes make them ideal objects for cloaking, as they have a fixed structure and movement pattern...
Even more tantalizing is the possibility of an optical "invisibility cloak" device that would surround an object and bend light in such a way that it would be perfectly refocused on the opposite side. This would provide perfect invisibility for the object inside the cloak, in a manner similar to the cloaks used by Harry Potter or the Klingons in the old Star Trek television series.
"Of course, anyone inside the cloak would not be able to see out," Atwater says.
"But maybe you could have some small windows," Dionne adds.

But employing the principle of Ockham's Razor, it's probably something much more mundane, like a fancy paint job and simple misdirection.

Shackleton was a VP at Enron. There is a conspiracy there, it deals with manipulating the energy markets though.
It would be a hoot to find one of those leaning Es on the moon.

I don't get where this thread has gone. And to think I got busted for being off topic....in this very forum no less.....
William of Ockham (also Occam or any of several other spellings, IPA: /ˈɒkəm/) (c. 1288 - c. 1348) was an English Franciscan friar and scholastic philosopher, from Ockham, a small village in Surrey, near East Horsley. He is considered, along with Thomas Aquinas and Duns Scotus, one of the major figures of medieval thought and found himself at the center of the major intellectual and political controversies of the fourteenth century. Although commonly known for Ockham's Razor, the methodological procedure that bears his name, William of Ockham also produced significant works on logic, physics, and theology.

I am free to talk about any of my published US Patents which are in the public domain. I am, however, under an edict from DoD under the NSA to 'report any inquiries relative to the 'stealth patent'. I had a phone call from a person who identified himself as an 'Undersectetary of Defense' and the person read a statement to me which I later found was excerpted from the National Security Act, as amended. I was 'ordered' to report any inquiries of any kind, by anyone, to DoD relative to that case (patent). I've only had to do that one time in 20 years when a group of Isreali's, based in Philly, contacted me relative to undertaking collaboration on some 'project' in Haifa. I reported this as instructed and the group 'disappeared' shortly thereafter.
"My sources" or some other story covering why they can't present any of us with the REAL facts.
With posts like this, would it be fair for me to start posting about the five story, purple giraffe living in my back yard? Y'know- He's behind the fake moon landing.
I'm for disclosure as much as everyone else on this board- But, where are the facts?
I saw the following picture of the International Space Station taken by
a ground observer which I thought might be useful to add and compare to
the photos you have posted on the secret military space station:
Your web site is fabulous. Give my regards to John Lear. Thanks.

Reason given when an ATS member inquired as to why, was that the forum does not tolerate anything to do with UFO's...
If the Space Shuttle docked with a secret space station, don't you think you could see it with a telescope?
A very simple way to cloak the Space shuttle on a Secret Space Station would be net or cloth or other material spread out and positioned so that it would be impossible to see the Shuttle from earth.

How many people would have to be "in the know" to support such a thing, and could secrecy with that many people be maintained?
