I believe, we as human beings are starting to scratch the surface on physics and materials science. I have an interest in science of all kinds and
consider myself to have a broad background which allows me to excel within my profession as I usually piece different things together to solve complex
problems. As Zorgon says, it's not what's published, it's what's NOT published. Very astute.
I found this whole subject fascinating to say the least concerning the Bob White object and the Hessdalen investigation that is ongoing (they even
have a web cam that post a pic every second, sometimes you can see the phenomenon they discuss). One aspect of these had me thinking and it wasn't
until today that I realized what it was.
Advance Note: ATS has an excellent search function. USE IT! If you are not familiar with what I am discussing. I don't have the time to bring
everyone to the detail I have researched. I will be summarizing.
Stick with this logic and please give me your thoughts.
1. Now good old Bob White (God rest his soul - amazing no one is trying to say he was killed to stop him from investigating this) found this object
that was mostly aluminum, but none the less an alloy never seen before. Now what bothered me was that there was an unknown trace element).
In the 40's, another object was found in Denmark that was very, eerily similar (declassified American government document).
“That hasn't happened. But White isn't discouraged. This week's History Channel show is a sign of public interest, he believes. And he recently
learned that his may not be the only known example of "hard evidence."
"They found an object that looks just like mine in Denmark back in the 1940s," White says. "We got a government report that had been 'classified'
for years. On the cover are the words 'Recovered from flying saucer in Denmark.' Inside are photos of the thing — and it looks exactly like
mine." - Bob White
The most recent analysis came up with:
“Physicist Chris Ellis, expert in solid state physics, aluminum alloys, and superconductors. Test result showed the object is an alloy of unknown
origin. It is also his expert opinion that this is a manufactured alloy.
Research Scientist David Lamb, expert in physics and material science. Also works at a major US university. Findings were achieved using X-Ray
Diffraction Analysis: The artifact showed an unique “amorphous peak and is a polycrystalline semiconductor”. To his knowledge this type of
material is not found anywhere on Earth. Also there is silver concentration of 4.3%, here on Earth silver is used in this form by experimental
scientist as a catalyst for a superconductor. It is sprayed over aluminum and thus is in small amounts as we see here from the test results. He
postulated that this could be used on a craft as a way to dispel magnetic fields, especially in space as there is no energy expenditure needed for
superconductivity. Lamb has further speculated that this artifact is in fact a “quasi-crystal of complex structure.” This is only in its early
stages on Earth in the form of nanotechnology. “ - Larry Cekander Lead Projects coordinator Museum of the Unexplained
These results are current as of May 2009
By the way, Larry posts on these boards as well!
2. During the 20+ years of investigating the UFO's in Hessdalen Norway (same place as the Norway Spiral - and use the search box to read this post as
it's fascinating as well) element traces from scientists detected Oxygen, Silicon (pretty common elements in dust) and - are you ready for this -
SCANDIUM! I swear this is a legit element (Google it)
Scandium is very rare and is mostly found, guess where? That's right Scandinavia (or Denmark).
Scandium does not have a particularly low abundance in the earth's crust. Estimates vary from 18 to 25 ppm, which is comparable to the abundance of
cobalt (20–30 ppm). However, scandium is distributed sparsely and occurs in trace amounts in many minerals. Rare minerals from Scandinavia. -
But guess where it is even more abundant?
Scandium is more common in the sun and certain stars than on Earth. Scandium is only the 50th most common element on earth (35th most abundant in the
Earth's crust), but it is the 23rd most common element in the sun.
So what is Scandium used for? Well it is used in some lighting as it gives a realistic hue to natural sunlight – great for making a movie, or
The addition of scandium to aluminum limits the excessive grain growth that occurs in the heat-affected zone of welded aluminum components. This has
two beneficial effects: the precipitated Al3Sc forms smaller crystals than are formed in other aluminium alloys and the volume of precipitate-free
zones that normally exist at the grain boundaries of age-hardening aluminum alloys is reduced. Both of these effects increase the usefulness of
the alloy. - Wikipedia
So what does this mean? Well for metallurgy, unstable grain growth is a very, very bad thing for nanotechnology as grain growth or nucleation will
destroy a device. Oh, and did I mention that adding Scandium to another metal to create an alloy also raises the melting temp of said alloy.
Oh, and the Soviets have been using Scandium for decades in high performance jet fighters.
So, what do you think? Here's the dots.....
