Technical writer David Alzofon joined guest host Richard Syrett to discuss his father's development of gravity control technology. Alzofon described his father, the late Dr. Frederick Alzofon, as the most dedicated physicist he ever met. He left academia to pursue aerospace research in the mid-1950s, and published a paper in 1960 on his theory of gravitation after a long conversation with noted theoretical physicists Richard Feynman, Alzofon reported. His stated mission was to make space travel cheap and accessible for all of humanity, he added.
According to Alzofon, the term 'anti-gravity' was used by his father all of the time but dismissed largely by university and private research firms, so he switched to calling his invention 'gravity control technology.' Government agencies apparently took his work seriously, however, as his father warned the family about phone taps and not to speak to anyone about his job. "In my opinion, they were probably listening to him at all times until he retired," he suggested.
Alzofon detailed his father's successful 1994 anti-gravity demonstration at an undisclosed university in which an object loss mass under laboratory conditions. "The beauty of this experiment was that it can be replicated, and it can be replicated probably by many hundreds of people within the range of my voice right now," he noted. The technology is not any more complex than a microwave oven, and works by taking energy out of random subatomic processes, Alzofon explained.
He also recalled the time his family witnessed a UFO. "Until you actually see [a UFO] you imagine them to be part of an urban legend... you can't believe that such a thing could actually exist," Alzofon said.
Open Lines followed in the latter half of the program. Allen in Sebring, Florida, phoned in to share what he learned about anti-gravity technology during his time serving in the Air Force in the mid-1960s. According to Allen, one of his instructors told him about an anti-gravity machine which could levitate an object based on its resonate frequency. "[The inventor] had a frequency generator and he would turn the generator on, and he would match the resonate frequency of the object and it would lift from the floor," Allen said. The government would not let him patent the device, he disclosed.
Nancy in Victoria, Texas, connected the 2017 total solar eclipse to Hurricane Harvey. According to Nancy's research, legend has it that a large "totality" eclipse can trigger natural disasters. Richard suggested cosmic rays from the sun may alter weather patterns. Don from Vancouver, Washington, compared the Nazca Lines to giant landing strips, which he believes could only have been engineered and directed directly from above. "In order to structurally look down and make these intricate patterns, you have to be hovering in one spot for a considerable amount of time," he suggested.
