  1. A better way to generate energy in an engine huh? Bet this will be pushed against. There are alot of ways to make an engine. The reason new ways of making energy arent out is bc they’ve been forcefully suppressed

  2. Reminds me of the metal found in the Roswell UFO crash. supposedly. The crash happened in July 7, 1947, two years before it was used by Dr. William j. Buehler in his rockets.

  3. Get real. We might put a person or two on Mars, but that’s it. Events on Earth will negate any further exploration as we slip back into the stone age with however many humans are left at the end of this century.
