Last Show Recap

Space & the Universe

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Space & the Universe

Show Archive
Date: Monday - February 13, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: David Darling, Stanton Friedman

Astrobiologist & astronomer Dr. David Darling discussed a variety of topics related to space, technology and the universe. On a large scale,gravity is the most important force in the universe and is the key to where we're going in the future, he said. "Dark energy," that causes the universe to expand could be considered an oppositional force to gravity, he added. Antigravity is being explored, such as for magnetic levitation and shielding devices. Boeing, NASA and British Aerospace are all looking at this technology which could ultimately be used for propulsion, yet it's almost inevitable that the military is already developing it for their own ends, he commented.

Black holes that are spinning have a singularity that spreads out and it might be possible to travel through these "wormholes" not unlike a subway system. Travelers could reemerge on the other side in a different part of the galaxy or even another universe, he postulated. Darling further speculated that an ancient race might have established an elaborate network of these wormholes. If we were to discover one of them, we might send a probe through to see where it ended up, he suggested.

He expressed disappointment with NASA's current focus on the Shuttle and the International Space Station, which he believes yield little in scientific data. Darling was however enthusiastic about next generation space telescopes which can be spread out thousands of miles apart yet function as one giant unit.

Walter Haut Remembered

First hour guest, UFO researcher Stanton Friedman remembered the life of Walter Haut, the former Army Lt., who as a spokesman for the Roswell Army Air Field, sent out a news release about a recovered flying saucer in 1947. Decades later Haut was instrumental in Friedman's initial research into the Roswell mystery. Haut passed away at the age of 83 in December.
