Like I'm suppose to congratulate Space-X for doing a simpler version of what NASA and the US Government claims to have done 36 years ago on the Moon with the Lunar Module.
The Lunar Module had to be more difficult to balance than the rocket Space-X has had problems with. (Like comparing a soccer-ball to a broom stick,) and doing it right here on Earth
Wouldn't it have been a lot cheaper, just to ask how they did it on the Moon?
But of course the Lunar module never landed on the Moon now did it?.
Anyhow, Space-X is obviously utilizing a better method to get into Space, -over Richard Branson's Virgin plane type thing.
Branson's method can only do touristic type trip into the lower elevations as Space_X's method has potential to go further, even though I think there is someone who has already gone further into Space than Space-X .
I know, I'm going to get lazy on this one.

Ask Mr. Space X if he thinks
humans went to the Moon, -in 1969?
Hell the fact that they can't get the booster to land on the barge proves that we still don't have the technology to make a lunar landing module,- land, -period.
Kinna makes those old Space Shuttles look better every day.
I bet you could find more people willing to step up and take the gamble on one of those retire Space Shuttles over anything anyone has come up with since.
It's a problem when artificial intelligence gets more involve and the human aspects of it go to hell. Pretty soon it all relies on a line of digital code. Not the most trust worthy thing.
The way I look at it:
If we weren't spending so much of your Tax Dollars building and blowing up targets for the sake of the profits of the defense contractors. We would have saved enough money to build another half a dozen new and even a little improved Space Shuttles.
Could have been doing something something constructive; like taking any kind of material up there and tying it all together some how.
If you think you are going to go to the Moon, I don't think you can launch everything you need in one launch. You need to be able to get the parts up into space and then assemble the craft to go further.
Still, there is that radiation factor and even God himself would tell you that the human body does not fair well with it.
But Tax Payers are handing over almost 5% of their income to Blow up their own targets at the rate of at least $50 Billion per year no less.
Garbage to fuel
Joseph Longo and his plasma gasification company stand out from the others by reducing the process down to a one step process; where as others require a few more steps. More

Maybe I should have put this in CarGuys
And in the 2013 May issue of Popular Science mag, you'll find an invention I came up with when I was in Australia and I'd bought one of those Propane powered ice chess that don't work so well and wasn't worth the money except that it did make my ice last longer. (Very few places sold block Ice and good thick walled Ice chests went for a premium.)
However, in this article, page 42 in PS they don't actually tell you that the simple ammonia type refrigeration was actually the first kind invented. Instead of using a compressor, they would actually heat the ammonia gas to compress it and force it through a nozzle or orifice of some kind to come up with a cooling effect. The cooling effect in a heat exchanger which is usually the cooling apparatus or as they called it a nozzle in the PS mag actually condenses the Ammonia gas created by the compression and back to a fluid again, ready for another cycle. (Still commonly used in three way refrigerators on most RV's today.)
Anyhow, refrigeration and air conditioning both work more or less in the same way and I thought back then, that a more efficient way to air condition a vehicle (as well as give it its on refrigerator would be without running a compressor off the engine. So why couldn't some one plumb an ammonia based refrigeration unit to a heat exchanger on the exhaust manifold or around the exhaust pipe or even incorporate it into the muffler. Even a catalytic converter would be a good source of heat for it. But actually folks, just because the PS mag may have labled it as some kind of new invention, it doesn't mean that it hasn't been done before. Never the less, we are more energy conserving than we've ever been so I figure that in the past it might have never been as practical as it is now.
Check this out: SRI's Mobile Robotics and Transducers Programme claim
they got robots that can climb walls made of glass, brick, wood and concrete by the use of positive and negative charges. They say it's in some ways it is similar to rubbing a balloon and sticking it on
the wall except their robot has a power supply and its able to control the adhesion by a technology, called compliant electro adhesion.
Engineer Harsha Prahlad said, "What we've invented is a way to induce charges on the wall using a power supply located on the robot".
"The robot carries with it positive and negative charges, and when the walls sees these charges it automatically generates the opposite charge. The robot can then clamp onto those charges."
If this is true, I happen to think that this would be one of the greatest inventions I've seen in quite awhile. However, this video and pictures could be made as a ploy to get people to invest in a company which could very well go broke over night. That is if the just had it running on a fishing string or some trick photography. (Because I'd like to see it crawl a ceiling, but they don't have images of it doing that, and that's why I'm so skeptical.
More one this at BBC or at the SRI.com website.
Apparently I'm not the only one:
To think Hybrid Subs would have several advantages.
You gotta figure that being quite is the biggest problem with Submarines. You can't hide very well when others can hear you, and you can't hear others when you are making noise yourself.
The problem with a nuclear reactor base propulsion is that the Nuclear generator is more or less a steam powered generator and there is no way to turn off or stop the turbine that is connected to the generator. (So even if you power down, -you really cant power down all the way.)
Where as A Hybrid propulsion system can run with less noise because the only moving parts are the electric motors and propulsion system, and when you shut down that, there isn't anything else left running in motion.
Diesel engines with generators would only truly be needed if there is a problem with overcast skies, or the desire to move on top of the water during the night at a higher rate of speed. Just as the ability to travel faster during the day with the help of solar panels; and for top speed they could pull power off the batteries too.
And a Submarine is an excellent vehicle for the use of Lithium Ion Batteries because there is plenty of steel inside water to use for heat sinks, -keeping them cool during rapid charging and discharging with heavy workloads.

Orbital Laser Grams
The German TerraSAR-X satellite recently exchanged laser volleys with a US Missile Defense Agency satellite. It was the first demonstration of the use of lasers for intersatellite communication. The beams covered more than 3000 miles with no errors, carrying data equivalent to about 400 DVDs per hour - a rate 100 times greater than
is currently possible using microwaves.
The technolgy could be adapted for real-time links between Mars and Earth.

He actually thinks he can drive his car on water.

He's not paranoid, he's just using his head, he won't even ride his own motorcycle around the block. Nor will he drive his own car.
He's also making electricity from human waste and he has his own webiste at-
