Here's my email to Discovery regarding the brilliantly produced theories appearing here on ATS (read after for my original thoughts) :
I actually have an idea for a new program for Discovery Networks (especially as Discovery is my favorite TV choice, particularly The Science Channel).
I apologize if this is in the wrong place, but it was the best I could find regarding the subject. I would like to see a future episode (possibly
Mythbusters on regular Discovery, and possibly on the Science Channel) discussing often rejected theories of modern science. In that show, I would
like to see credit given to Nikola Tesla for the fluorescent light (as was neglected to be mentioned, and was attributed to someone else in an episode
of "How it's Made" - other thoughts can be found at en.wikipedia.org...
stating Tesla's invention of the Flourescent light.
Additionally, on the episode (I can't remember the series) that explored the Tunguska Event, Tesla was never mentioned, even though his research
(specifically the "Death Ray" is one of the most popular alternative theories of the event). There are many arguments made by alternative physical
theorists that may hold water in modern science. Many of these theorists can be found at www.abovetopsecret.com...
, and are often in the science
and technology, peak oil, and skunkworks forums. There are many theories for free and alternative energy, advanced technology (particularly regarding
space travel) and other technologies that may be of interest, either in the theoretical or practical stages to viewers of Discovery networks.
After all that (and being cut off from the Discovery Channel limits), I'm hoping to, in this endeavor, to create a public awareness of alternative
and breakthrough theories, as have been presented here, though various forums. I don't want the brilliance of our members to go unrecognized.
Hopefully, this will be a subject that comes to light on the Discovery Channel. All I can ask from board members and admininstrators, is to help me
in contacting Discovery with an interest in just such a show. I feel that if they choose to produce the show, they'll come to us, and want opinions,
thoughts, and theories.
Please, members of ATS, don't let me down in getting this show made. I've laid the groundwork. I need all of you to support me.
Edit: I forgot to include the best way to contact Discovery: www.discovery.com...
- click on the Contact link, follow the directions, especially
leaning towards a new show, and please let them know you'd like to see this show. Even if it only becomes a Mythbusters show, I'd like to see this
new alternative technology featured, as it may help to inspire others. Not to mention the potential mega-income for the board itself, should it get
mentioned (I'm hoping it will).
