  7. 2050 and the Future of Transportation

    Frictionless vehicles and binary power will define transportation in the world ahead Transportation technology is progressing at a much slower pace than some of the other sciences such as information technology, biotech, and nanotechnology. As an example, the world's human speed record was set in 1969, a full 37 years ago, when Thomas Stafford, John Young, and Gene Cernan flew in Apollo 10 at 24,7…Read More

  8. Nano-Weaponry: Entree to a Twisted Reality

    Invisible to the human eye, nano diameter needles will be shot like clusters of bullets from great distances to “pin” people to a wall or freeze their physical movement. Nano needles, because of their incredibly tiny diameter, will be the ultimate non-lethal weapon, leaving no visible wounds and causing no permanent damage. I would like to begin by saying that I am not a fan of using nanotechn…Read More
