Scientists are working hard to understand gravity--which is the key to future space travel. When it comes to this subject, they think that Albert Einstein was absolutely right--and completely wrong.
In the Guardian, Robin McKie quotes psysicist Harald Luck as saying, "In his general theory of relativity, Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves, which he said would be set off by highly energetic events objects like supernovae or neutron star collisions. However, he also predicted we would never be able to observe these waves because they would be too weak to be detected by the time they reached Earth. We intend to prove him right in the first instance and wrong in the second."
No one has ever detected a gravitational wave, but in order to do this, a group of researchers have built a small, "mini-CERN" like facility in a small village in the UK. McKie quotes physicist Jim Hough as saying, "We know they exist and yes, we are going to find them (and in doing so), we are going to create a new kind of astronomy. Until now, everything we have learned about the universe has been based on studies of electromagnetic radiation--from infrared to visible light to gamma ray detection. Gravity waves will create a completely new type of astronomy."
In 1998, a mysterious man that Whitley Strieber calls the Master of the Key burst into his hotel room in Toronto and told him all kinds of things he didn't know--but when he checked them out later, he found out they were TRUE. One of the few things that Whitley could NOT check out was MOTKE's provocative statement that we are stuck on this planet because the parents of the child who would have given us the ability to travel into space was killed in the holocaust!
