Our recent special guest in Streamlink's live chat was author and publisher William J. Birnes (pictured), the publisher of UFO magazine and the co-author with Col. Philip Corso of The Day After Roswell.Birnes also recently launched the Filament Book Club and is co-authoring books with George Noory. Below are some excerpts from the Q & A; members can view the entire transcript.touleMr. Birnes, did Col. Corso work with more than 1 kind of alien space craft? William Birnes Yes, he worked on the time machine he saw in the NM desert as well as the one from either Corona or San Augustin.touleA time machine!! Where did that come from....and when? William Birnes In 1957, Corso was told that a strange craft was downrange on the Red Canyon missile site. He flew over it, then drove to it. In the scorching desert heat, it was cold. Then it simply vanished. Hermann Oberth told him that it was an alien time machine. FrostyOther than your great book
Many climate scientists believe the melting of glaciers worldwide is a sign the planet has entered the first phase of global warming.

The official purpose of Project HAARP (website/webcam), which is based in Alaska, is said to be for studying the ionosphere in order to "understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes." Yet, over the years allegations have arisen that HAARP is involved in everything from weather modification to mind control.Guy Cramer has a new article posted which concludes that in addition to HAARP, there is another huge ionospheric array in Alaska. The page also contains photos, maps, and recommended links from Cramer and Dr. Joseph Resnick.

Many experts believe an eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma could cause a massive landslide, triggering a "mega-tsunami." The giant tidal wave would measure over 150 feet tall, travel at 500 mph, and smash into North and South America with destructive force. The U.S. would have only 6 to 12 hours to evacuate the tens of millions of people living along the eastern shoreline.Watch the simulation:Win | RealCredit: Dr. Steven N. Ward, U.C. Santa Cruz

2nd half-hour guest, inventor Troy Hurtubise shared details about the 'Angel Light', a device he built that allegedly sees through walls. The 14 ft. long machine, which he said he constructed using "black market" parts, runs on various properties of light and electromagnetism and uses plasma chambers and inert gases, he detailed. In addition to making solid walls appear transparent, Angel Light can render anything electronic inoperable, including a plane flying at a high altitude, Hurtubise said. The device also has a negative "Hyde effect," he added, which causes those who come in contact with machine when it's running to become ill.
Conditions related to giant sunspot 720 and its coronal mass ejections have made the sightings of bright auroras likely tonight in Canada and Alaska. The photo on the left was taken on Jan. 18th by Bjorn Jorgensen in Norway. See more recent images at SpaceWeather.com's Aurora Gallery.

A new invention called the Angel Light (pictured in photo by Bill Tremblay) is reportedly able to see through walls, as well as detect stealth technology. Troy Hurtubise, an inventor based in Ontario, Canada, said that the concept came to him in a recurring dream. Once he built the device, he discovered he was able to see into the garage behind his lab wall and read the license plate on his wife's car. MIT has worked with Hurtubise on developing the technology and the French government has expressed interest in it as well. Read more in this article from BayToday.ca.
Audio data from Huygens has been retrieved as the probe made its descent into Titan. Track One combines several sound samples to portray what a passenger might have heard aboard the craft. Track Two features an audio conversion of radar echoes that may give clues about the nature of Titan's surface. For more, visit ESA's site.

In his book, The Age of Spiritual Machines, author Ray Kurzweil imagines a (near) future where increases in the computing capacity of machines lead to remarkable breakthroughs in medical science and life expectancy.Kurzweil theorizes by 2019, computerized monitors built into our clothes and jewelry will have the ability to diagnose health problems and provide recommendations for treatment. The expected human life span will likely exceed one hundred years, he suggests.By 2029, Kurzweil thinks advances in our understanding of DNA information-processing will make many diseases and age-related maladies preventable. He expects that artificial nanoengineered bionic organs will replace failing human body parts, and our life span will rise to around 120 years.Kurzweil believes by the year 2099, there will be no clear distinction between humans and computers, and "life expectancy [will] no longer [be] a viable term in relation to intelligent beings."

William Thomas raised a variety of issues concerning the possible health hazards of cell phones. Sir William Stewart, a leading scientist in the U.K., recently urged parents to stop their children from using mobile phones, until more is known about their safety. It's thought that children might be more vulnerable to fields given off by such phones because of their thinner skulls and developing nervous systems. Read more in this article from Times Online.

One of the worst air disasters in American history occurred in May 1979 at Chicago's O'Hare Airport, when an American Airlines DC-10 jet experienced engine problems just as it was lifting off the ground. The plane flipped over and exploded on the runway, killing all 271 of its passengers. As reportedly featured in an Associated Press story, David Booth had phoned-in a disturbing dream to the FAA three days before the crash. He had correctly named both the airline and the plane, and the type of crash. "There was never any doubt to me that something was going to happen
It was like I was standing there watching the whole thinglike watching television," said Booth. Equally uncanny are the reports of hauntings and strange phenomena that occurred in the vicinity of the crash site. Des Plaines police officers initially began receiving reports of "odd bobbing white lights in the field where the aircraft went down," wrote Troy Taylor in the article Lingering Spirits of Flight

The film White Noise, which opened this weekend, has gotten somewhat of a critical drubbing. It is, however, bringing a lot of media attention to Electronic Voice Phenomena, which most Coast listeners are quite familiar with from years of spooky moments provided by the G.I.S. TV station WOAI in San Antonio recently broadcast a report featuring Guillermo Fuentes, a local paranormal investigator (his microphone is pictured left), who shared some of his EVPs with them.

Our understanding of the universe may be completely transformed when the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) is launched in 2011. It's five year mission: to detect gravitational waves generated by black holes, stars, and neutron stars that orbit each other (binaries). LISA will travel an Earth's orbit away from the Sun, but follow behind our planet by 30 million miles. It will consist of three freely flying spacecraft 'connected' to one another by laser beams, forming a gigantic triangle of light about three million miles on each side. When a gravity wave hits the triangle, distortions in the laser light will be picked up by the antenna's instruments.The observatory will be able to detect and measure gravitational waves that have been around since the birth of the universe, and perhaps answer one of mankind's greatest mysteries: how did the universe begin?

Albert Einstein theorized that time flowed at different rates. According to him, the faster one traveled, the slower time flowed. Einstein called this phenomenon time dilation, and invented the "Twin Paradox" to explain its effects.

It's official. Britain has become a "cashless society." For the first time ever spending on credit and debit cards has overtaken the use of notes and coins. According to the Association for Payment Clearing Services, the transition from paper to plastic occurred at 10:38 AM on December 29, 2004. Experts believe the shift towards using plastic has been driven by the convenience and security of card transactions. Currently, there are over 130 million plastic cards in use in Britain - with debit cards accounting for 65% of card spending. Read more at Scotsman.com.
The 3,300-year-old mummy of King Tutankhamun was prepared for CT scanning Wednesday. Scientists hope the three-dimensional images produced by the scan will help them learn about King Tut's royal lineage, his actual age, now estimated at 17, and how he died. The photo to the left shows Dr. Zahi Hawass (center) checking Tut's mummy in the tomb at Luxor as it is prepared for the CT scan. Read more at National Geographic.Photo: Associated Press
A group of artists calling themselves the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists (M.A.R.T.) were recently featured in an article by Joel Topcik in The New York Times. According to the article, the group is "dedicated to exploring the artistic possibilities of stuffing and mounting animal remains." The above photo shows M.A.R.T. co-founder Sarina Brewer's "Goth Griffin," which she constructed from a feral farm cat and a crow, both roadkill.
