Yeah I use Wiki for most of this stuff, But I ask you where do you find all your links, I have also checked out some of this info in other Encyclopedic sources - the inspiratution for the telegraph comes from a book i reecently read called the Victorian Internet - bbut I couldnt cut and patse that!

True anyone can cut and paste, but if the Tech Tree is on Wiki, its gonna be in a lot of other places too.

Corso's evidence comes from himself alone and his book, and being dead now he cannot comment. While the tech evolution i have shown comes from a variety of sources and credible scientists. 1 book does not make a truth, no matter how interesting the possibilitys.
If corso had a lot of people to back up his claims - its more plausuible, but it seems from quick research he was discredited by a number of sources including his colleugues.

Lets start with the gaps in this long line of developments. I'll give links and not just say "GOOGLE" it.

You will see a long line of development and then breakthroughs.
Notice the dates

History of Fibre Optics 1954

In 1854, John Tyndall demonstrated to the Royal Society that light could be conducted through a curved stream of water, proving that a light signal could be bent.

In 1880, Alexander Graham Bell invented his 'Photophone', which transmitted a voice signal on a beam of light. Bell focused sunlight with a mirror and then talked into a mechanism that vibrated the mirror. At the receiving end, a detector picked up the vibrating beam and decoded it back into a voice the same way a phone did with electrical signals. Many things -- a cloudy day for instance -- could interfere with the Photophone, causing Bell to stop any further research with this invention.

In 1880, William Wheeler invented a system of light pipes lined with a highly reflective coating that illuminated homes by using light from an electric arc lamp placed in the basement and directing the light around the home with the pipes.

In 1888, the medical team of Roth and Reuss of Vienna used bent glass rods to illuminate body cavities.

In 1895, French engineer Henry Saint-Rene designed a system of bent glass rods for guiding light images in an attempt at early television.

In 1898, American David Smith applied for a patent on a bent glass rod device to be used as a surgical lamp.

In the 1920's, Englishman John Logie Baird and American Clarence W. Hansell patented the idea of using arrays of transparent rods to transmit images for television and facsimiles respectively.
Fiber optics is the contained transmission of light through long fiber rods of either glass or plastics. The light travels by a process of internal reflection. The core medium of the rod or cable is more reflective than the material surrounding the core. That causes the light to keep being reflected back into the core where it can continue to travel down the fiber. Fiber optic cables are used for transmitting voice, images and other data at close to the speed of light.

In 1930, German medical student, Heinrich Lamm was the first person to assemble a bundle of optical fibers to carry an image. Lamm's goal was to look inside inaccessible parts of the body. During his experiments, he reported transmitting the image of a light bulb. The image was of poor quality, however. His effort to file a patent was denied because of Hansell's British patent.

n 1954, Dutch scientist Abraham Van Heel and British scientist Harold. H. Hopkins separately wrote papers on imaging bundles. Hopkins reported on imaging bundles of unclad fibers while Van Heel reported on simple bundles of clad fibers. He covered a bare fiber with a transparent cladding of a lower refractive index. This protected the fiber reflection surface from outside distortion and greatly reduced interference between fibers. At the time, the greatest obstacle to a viable use of fiber optics was in achieving the lowest signal (light) loss.

Inventors of the Modern Computer

Father of the Microchip 1958

Jack Kilby, an engineer with a background in ceramic-based silk screen circuit boards and transistor-based hearing aids, started working for Texas Instruments in 1958. A year earlier, research engineer Robert Noyce had co-founded the Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation.

From 1958 to 1959, both electrical engineers were working on an answer to the same dilemma: how to make more of less. In designing a complex electronic machine like a computer it was always necessary to increase the number of components involved in order to make technical advances. The monolithic (formed from a single crystal) integrated circuit placed the previously separated transistors, resistors, capacitors and all the connecting wiring onto a single crystal (or 'chip') made of semiconductor material. Kilby used germanium and Noyce used silicon for the semiconductor material.

Not much of a history just came out of no where 1958
Carbon Fiber

History of Carbon Fiber In 1958, Dr. Roger Bacon created the first high-performance carbon fibers at the Union Carbide Parma Technical Center, located outside of Cleveland, Ohio.[4]The first fibers were manufactured by heating strands of rayon until they carbonized. This process proved to be inefficient, as the resulting fibers contained only about 20% carbon and had low strength and stiffness properties. In the early 1960s, a process was developed using polyacrylonitrile (PAN) as a raw material. This had produced a carbon fiber that contained about 55% carbon and had much better properties. The polyacrylonitrile (PAN) conversion process quickly became the primary method for producing carbon fibers.[2]

History of the Laser Here you have a huge gap 1917 then all of sudden in 1954 advancement.

The name LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. In 1917, Albert Einstein first theorized about the process which makes lasers possible called "Stimulated Emission." Before the Laser there was the Maser

In 1954, Charles Townes and Arthur Schawlow invented the maser (microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation), using ammonia gas and microwave radiation - the maser was invented before the (optical) laser. The technology is very close but does not use a visible light. On March 24, 1959, Charles Townes and Arthur Schawlow were granted a patent for the maser. The maser was used to amplify radio signals and as an ultrasensitive detector for space research.

In 1958, Charles Townes and Arthur Schawlow theorized and published papers about a visible laser, an invention that would use infrared and/or visible spectrum light, however, they did not proceed with any research at the time. Ruby Laser In 1960, Theodore Maiman invented the ruby laser considered to be the first successful optical or light laser.

Again development then a breakthrough 1957

History of Superconductors

There are several different types of superconductors.
The original superconductor was invented in 1911 by Dutch physicist, Heike Kammerlingh Onnes, when these superconductors are cooled, they act as a perfect conductors with no resistance. Onnes experimented with mercury, tin, and lead.

Meissner Effect
In 1933, Walther Meissner and R. Ochsenfeld discovered that superconductors are more than a perfect conductor of electricity, they also have an interesting magnetic property of excluding a magnetic field (Meissner Effect). A superconductor will not allow a magnetic field to penetrate its interior. It causes currents to flow that generate a magnetic field inside the superconductor that just balances the field that would have otherwise penetrated the material.

Mysteries of Superconductors - BCS Theory
In 1957, scientists began to unlock the mysteries of superconductors. Three American physicists at the University of Illinois, John Bardeen, Leon Cooper, and Robert Schrieffer, developed a model that has since stood as a good example of why superconductors behave as they do and expressed the advanced ideas of the science of quantum mechanics. Their model suggested that electrons in a superconductor condense into a quantum ground state and travel together collectively and coherently.

Sources for this?
That would help.

It took a long time to backwards engineer the technology that was found back then. Corso never claimed we were given the technology nor that we could not have developed it on our own, but that he was in charge of releasing it to industry that were already working in those fields, they seemed to be the best chance of developing it. In his book he explains this in detail.

He said he contacting people at these companies and only the need to know were let into the know. His only requirement was that they used it and take the claims of the development, patents and to release it into the consumer markets!

Most dates and names were unashamedly plagarised from Wiki pedia and similar sources I apologise for any inconsistancies in the data.

Again that's an opinion.
He explains the whole Strom thing.
