You would think this is a new idea or a new concept, but actually it is not. In the late 1800s early 1900s an american/serb scientist called Nikola
Tesla patented such an idea.
He invented such things as wireless radio (communications), AC ( alternating current). It is rumoured that the stars wars program is based on one of
He came up with a lot of other advanced theories, some flawed, some way ahead of its time. When he died, the american goverment took all his works,
theories and patents.
One of his theories based on flight, was using electro magnetic propelled craft, ie flying discs or cigar shaped crafts with sub stations on the
ground, as the source of its power.
An interesting observation is 4 years after his death and the american government seizing his works, the roswell incident occurred.
However I recently saw a program which mentioned work on electro magnetic powered trains, which could travel at massive speeds around the world, with
the traveller not feeling any effect of going at such speeds.
Interesting concept, another tecnology based on Nikola Tesla's work I feel.
The guy was an underated genius, often labelled as a mad scientist by detractors, probably due to his main rival at the time, who he outshone in the
war of the currents, the one and only Thomas Edison. Strangely we have all heard of Edison the inventor of DC ( direct current) and not many have
heard of Tesla, whose theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current electric power, which everyone uses today.
I think everyone should look into his works, there are a lot of documentaries on him available to watch online.
