Hi Gildas,

Yes there will be progress in Physics as in other sciences, but
I don't see anything that will lead to faster than light travel,
or star travel by humans, not robots.

I read Kaku's " Hyperspace".

I am very familiar with the ideas of Kaku and Randall but they
are only speculating and String Theory has taken several major
hits during the last few months.

>>Sorry, I don't think you see the big picture.

>Well, I am afraid your remark applies to you, Ed.

Your "Skinwalker" article was too mystical for me. The UFO
question is nuts and bolts and skin and blood and not confused
and groundless speculation or superstitious self-delusion. It's
a question of real hominids, in real time, driving real crafts
around our real world. UFO do not operate in a spirit world or
another dimension, but a knowable, and touchable reality of
which you and I are a part. That's what I call the big picture.
