'Ambassador Magazine' is published monthly, and offered free of charge while traveling on TWA. The URL of the main site devoted to nanotubes is: http://www.pa.msu.edu/cmp/csc/nanotube.html Thirdly I have included the URL of a text by Peter Harris at the University of Reading in the UK, one of the leading researchers in the field and authoring a book on the sucject, soon to be published by Cambridge University Press. The text doesn't refer to the exact material described in Ambassador Magazine, but gives a short historical background on nanotubes. The URL of the page, which has many interesting links, is: http://www.rdg.ac.uk/~scsharip/tubes.htm ******* 20. August 1997 06.50.24 alt.alien.visitors Item From: MGFF04A@prodigy.com,usenet Subject: Roswell: metal that springs back to shape To: alt.alien.visitors Many witnesses of the Roswell incident spoke about a material resembling lead foil that wouldn't crease or dent, and that would return to its original shape. Imagine my surprise when I read the following article from the July 1997 edition of AMBASSADOR magazine--I don't remember exactly, but I think it was a Northwest flight and hence the Northwest Airlines in-flight magazine. "It's between 10 and 100 times stronger than steel with one-sixth the weight. It can crumple without breaking, then spring back to its original shape. Within a few years, it may be used to reinforce airplane wings and tether satellites to the Earth. No, it's not Superman's hair. It's the world's strongest fiber. "The carbon nanotube is thinner than a pencil lead and made entirely of interlinked graphite atoms. 'This is the strongest material known,' reports Thomas Ebbesen, a professor of chemistry as Pasteur University in Strasbourg, France, and a pioneering expert on the filaments. Rice University physicist Peter Nordlander goes a step further, echoing the views of most researchers working on the tubes: 'This is quite probably the strongest material that can be made.' "The reason: Carbon atoms attach to other bits of matter using a covalent electrical bond, the strongest form of bond between atoms. The larger the distance between atoms, the weaker the links binding them together. Carbon's electrical strength and small size enable it to form a denser, stronger mesh of atomic bonds than any other material. ... "So far, researchers have been able to make tubes no longer than about 100 microns--a few hundredths of an inch.... "....Nobel chemist Richard Smalley of Rice University envisions a carbon filament one millimeter in diameter anchoring a satellite stationed more than 22,000 miles above the globe. The cord ... would weigh about 20 tons, he calculates, and could easily support its own weight. "'Who knows what might be possible with nanotubes?' Ebbesen adds.'They're the ultimate fiber." Is it just me, or does this have the appearance of a smoking gun?

X-Mailer: NETCOMplete v3.25, from NETCOM On-Line Communications, Inc. MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii I reviewed the ROSWELL materials on American Computer's website a second time, at: http://www.American-Computer.com I also called internally and spoke with American's VP of Research. He advised me that Air Force OSI was not particularly pleased with his release of that page or of the following page: http://www.American-Computer.com/roswell.htm I believe he was questioned about his security clearance by them. I understand they may be rather chagrined. I heard American's offices were broken in to after the article first appeared on the web. Interestingly, he also added the following, and I quote: "Ed -- really, as to the fragment of Silicon Carbide and Tungsten, with Arsenic doping, believed to be from the wreck, I really don't know, but if I were to speculate, and it has been speculated by others, that the Transistor might have evolved from testing a piece of it, discovering its 'Bipolarity' and 'Switching nature', and its ability to amplify, at Bell Labs... but most interestingly, perhaps an ElectroGravinomic Interference Drive..." (those are his exact terms, continuing...) "...could actually be the purpose of such a device - if one in fact exists...by running about 80 Million volts into a moving electromagnetic field, such a panel, composed of a sandwich like that, could oscillate and that might result in some pretty interesting side effects - I don't even think the Department of Defense may realize what the side effects are - I did early work on my own years ago, High Energy Physics research work, and once proposed this solution to the problem of defeating gravity, while making a sufficiently light and yet resistant panel that could overcome the friction due to atmospheric re-entry, to the DoD and NASA, but they just seemed not to be interested, back in 1972, those having been war years and all... It's pretty technical what I was proposing - has a lot to do with areas of gravity research work I did that go quite a bit different path than Isaac Newtonian gravity 'beliefs' - but which are neither contradicted by, nor conflict with, Einstein or Hawking... " (to which he added:) "If such a component does exist from such a UFO wreck, maybe it's part of an interStellar Drive, don't you think? Gravity Interference can also be used as a rather high energy propulsion system - but to explain why, would take an hour I don't have to spend on the phone with you...sorry to say." That's an exact quote. Interesting phone call. He's quite open about it. Mentioned that if someone was going to silence him, they could have done it 25 years ago when he was theorizing about the structure of empty space and gravity. Very interesting guy. I thought maybe that's why we haven't heard about all this during the past twenty five! Food for thought. -- Ed Wang [End RFC-822 message.] ******* This is from American Computer: http://www.American-Computer.com/roswell.htm ******* EXPRESS YOUR OPINION ABOUT THE ROSWELL INCIDENT !! BACKGROUNDER & RECENT DEVELOPMENTS. [ Go fill out OPINION form NOW! ] [ Go to main AMERICAN COMPUTER Website... ] RUMOR and CONVENTIONAL FOLK LORE have claimed that a UFO crash landed in Roswell, New Mexico, in September, 1947 near a Nuclear Research Center maintained by the US Air Force at its airbase in Roswell. Supposedly, authentic reports of the crash were suddenly covered up by the Air Force -- because the information unwisely released by base PR personnel, might constitute a threat to national security. Anecdotal reports have since claimed that Aliens, killed in the wreck, or afterward, were subsequently autopsied by the Surgeon General's office, and that the Surgeon General insisted that the autopsy be filmed. Supposedly: their bodies are now being stored by the US Army. Much more recently, stories have begun surfacing about what the Army or Air Force supposedly did with the downed Alien Spacecraft in September and October of 1947. Nuclear Powered Engines and Advanced Communications and Computing devices, all of which were a hundred years beyond post-World War II technology, were taken from the Alien wreck and purportedly made their way to The Bell System's "Bell Laboratories", then located in Murray Hill, New Jersey -- it has been alleged. There, they were studied, dissected, microanalyzed and pieces tested. One piece was supposedly found to have unique potential, an Alien switching device composed of Silicon and Arsenic, arranged in a microscopic array much more complicated than even now have been assembled by Humankind, hundreds of years ahead. It became the priority focus object of Bell Labs' and The US Department of Defense's analysis and scientific research. It was discovered by the researchers, that the unusual electronic Alien device could act as both a high speed electronic switch and as an Amplifier. They decided to call it the "Transfer Resistor", because it could be made to resist or accept power flow at much higher or lower currents than were applied to it, depending upon unique application of electron flows. Rumors have been flying in UFO-logy circles that, in 1948 and 1949, realizing that Aliens might not take lightly to this research, fearing attack not from the Soviet Union -- but from Aliens of unknown origin -- the U.S. Government hurriedly erected anti-missile batteries in the surrounding Watchung Mountains of New Jersey... near Bell Lab's Murray Hills facility, to protect it from space invasion!! It is not known if this is any indication that the Department of Defense accidently shot down the space craft and feared a reprisal. The alleged Space Defense Anti-missile Batteries, along the Lookout Mountain Ridge north of Bell Labs, is now abandonded and partly overbuilt by a regional high school. On the "Lookout Mountain Nike Base" there were, supposedly, frequent "alien anti-invasion" readiness exercises and drills throughout the 50's, 60's and the early 70's, notably: their frequency reportedly increased any time UFO sightings were reported to the US Air Force -- particularly in the New Jersey flight corridors, or so it has been alleged !! According to one account: the Alien Silicon "amplifier / switch", evaluated in October and November of 1947, was discovered to have enormous implications. The Alien device was allegedly a hundred years beyond the then simple "junction diodes" commonly in use at the time by military electronics. Yet it was reportedly determined at the time that simplified versions of the Alien devices could be manufactured by the effecting of several upgrades to existing technology. Then President Harry S. Truman ordered the devices "cloned" and a cover story manufactured. He was supposedly quoted as saying: "We can't keep so earthshaking a technological advance out of the hands of mankind. It just isn't right !" -- with classic Harry S. Truman sobriety. So, according to the story leaked by a reliable source to UFO-logy circles: in mid-December of 1947, to effect a plausible cover story, the DoD and Bell Labs purportedly manufactured a series of Press Releases, to whit: that after a "2 Year Long Extensive Research Effort" --discovery of the Transistor had "at last" been accomplished, supposedly by clever Bell Labs researchers (Drs. Shockley, Bardeen and Brattain, at Bell Lab's Electronic Circuits Research Center, under the aegis of maverick Bell Labs Vice President John "Jack" Morton). Since that time, The Bell System, and Bell Labs, in the hands of successor company AT&T and its partly owned subsidiary, Lucent Technologies, have continued to maintain the "Transistor Story" for all of posterity, while quietly covering up the real tracks that led the Alien devices to Bell Labs. Ufology sources say, however, that the device in the famous "transfer resistor test rig" at Bell Labs was, in fact, an actual piece of the original Alien integrated circuit array of transistor-like circuit pieces -- found in one of the Alien communication devices at the Crash Site in Roswell, N.M. It has allegedly been reported that it took a year or more for Bell Labs to then figure out how to commercially produce the miracle devices. Reportedly, subsequent technology obtained over the course of the next 10 years by Bell Labs, from the pieces of the wreck delivered to them by the DoD, included the Laser, enhanced solid state circuit components, large scale switching control systems and high definition imaging devices... However, some devices from the downed Alien spacecraft, not fully understood to this day, allegedly include a high energy microwave amplifier that has the secondary effect of decomposing solid objects into their molecular components, a form of circuitry that runs on other than electronic power: using particles thought to have very short half-lifes in the natural universe ("muons"), and a huge induction generator-like coil system some 50 feet in diameter which appears to implement part of some aspect of the vehicle's ability to perform unique flying characteristics and aerobatics - some think it might be a "gravity nullifying" device. What do you think?? Do YOU have any thing to add, such as an abduction experience, or a theory about Alien Visitations to our Planet? Did you work at Bell Labs during the 50's, 60's, 70's or in recent times, and notice anything unusual which might confirm or rebut these rumors?
