    An object uncovered by archaeologists in Norfolk, England, is “completely unlike” anything else ever discovered, experts said Monday. The tiny 19.4 mm (o.7 inch) object is a gilded silver relic, adorned with intricate designs appearing to show an animal looking over its shoulder, according to The Telegraph. The piece is believed to be at least 1,200 years old and archaeologists reportedly can’t determine the purpose of the mysterious object. Detectorists found the piece in a crumpled condition, but it appears to be a round object with shallow sides, making it somewhat dish-shaped. “It was made by someone with a real...

    The SpaceX Dragon capsule was observed breaking apart above the area of Australia where the farmers found the debris. Its re-entry was seen and heard by people from Canberra to Bendigo, with many sharing it on social media. ‘At first it kind of looks like a burnt tree … and then you come up to it, it’s like this alien obelisk almost,’ says astrophysicist Brad Tucker of the space debris that he believes to be from a SpaceX mission.

  • CIA Bombshell: The Sussmann data was "user created". Also: Confirmation of a frame-job against President-Elect Trump

    My late Friday night involved hitting refresh on PACER every so often, incurring the $0.10 charge for each search result as I waited on Special Counsel John Durham’s latest filing in the Michael Sussmann case. (Exciting, I know.) The motion exceeded expectations, discussing CIA conclusions that Sussmann was providing implausible data to federal authorities, providing CIA notes regarding their meeting with Sussmann, and confirmation that they essentially spied on President-Elect Trump. The motion can be found here. It was filed as part of the government’s efforts to convince the court that the evidence it seeks to admit in Sussmann’s trial...

    Only four units were ever produced.SpaceX has had a variety of struggles and successes since its inception 20 years ago, but one of its most resounding victories has been the successful development and flights of its manned space capsule, the Crew Dragon. The Crew Dragon capsule line has already completed four successful manned missions and is currently in orbit on its fifth manned flight. While the capsules are reusable and will continue to see service in coming years, SpaceX has decided to end production of the capsule after the fourth vehicle's production, according to a report from Reuters.The Crew Dragon's...
  • Dragon Naturally Speaking and Audio to Text Software Question

    I have some WAV files I'd like to convert to text. Can Dragon Naturally Speaking convert sound files (WAV or MP3) to text? Or must I dictate live for Dragon to create a text file?I found many website that allow me to upload MP3 files and convert them to text in the cloud. But I prefer to have a program on my computer.If Dragon doesn't do this, is there some software that can do it? Something not cloud-based.

    Emails obtained via an open records request provide a picture of the politics behind the players who formulated and fed the Alfa Bank theory via Michael Sussmann to the FBI.While Dagon may have been an expert in the data crunching, emails recently obtained by The Federalist from Georgia Tech reveal Dagon was something more—he was an anti-Trump, Russia-collusion conspiracy theorist.Dagon’s name first became connected with the Alfa Bank story when Special Counsel John Durham indicted Michael Sussmann two months ago, charging the Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer with lying to FBI General Counsel James Baker.What the Indictment Says about the Alfa...

    CNBC ^ | SEP 15 2021
    SpaceX is aiming to launch the Inspiration4 mission on Wednesday evening from NASA’s facility in Florida. The mission is the first private crew launched to orbit by Elon Musk’s company, and the first time a crew were all nonprofessional astronauts. Inspiration4 includes commander Jared Isaacman, pilot Sian Proctor, medical officer Hayley Arceneaux, and mission specialist Chris Sembroski. The multiday trip was paid for by Isaacman for an undisclosed amount, with the main goal of the spaceflight to raise $200 million for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. SpaceX is reusing a Falcon 9 rocket booster to launch Inspiration4, as it previously...
  • Giant Skulls Discovered: They Refuse to Believe the Truth Even When It Is Right in Front of Their Eyes

    Truth is often stranger than fiction, and some people will never accept the truth no matter how much evidence you show them. In this article, I am going to discuss two brand new discoveries that are radically shaking up how scientists view human history. Many of the experts are having a really tough time explaining these new discoveries, because they seem to directly contradict long established narratives that have been taught as “truth” to young students for decades. Unfortunately, we live at a time when narratives have become more important than facts, and scientific authorities have shown that they will...

    Why are the Dragon Awards a front in the culture war? Nerd culture is important. If you don’t believe me, look up “GamerGate“ sometime. While GG has been out of action for years (at least five years, IIRC) you’d think that it was a massive conspiracy theory on par with the Illuminati. It left a mark. You’d think the line was that “the Geek shall inherit the Earth.” In 2020, no one cared. That front was ignored entirely. The Leftist dirtbags who are interested in taking over every aspect of American life moved in. And while DragonCon is not a...

    A day after arriving at the International Space Station on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken laid claim to a U.S. flag that symbolizes America’s capability to send people to orbit from U.S. soil. The handkerchief-sized flag, sealed in a plastic envelope, has been kept aboard the space station since 2011, when NASA’s final space shuttle crew left it behind before making their departure aboard Atlantis. It was displayed above the Harmony module’s hatch - and, for a time, stored in an equipment bag, nearly forgotten - with instructions that it was to be taken...

    Military Today ^ | n/a | Staff
    Javelin is a US-made, man-portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile. It destroys bunkers, tank, trucks and low flying helicopters. When the gunner determines the target, coordinates are sent to the logic gob, which locks on the target. After launch and during flight the crew run like hell from the firing position. The missile is equipped with imaging infrared seeker to deliver an 8.4 kg tandem shaped charge. A precursor warhead detonates any ablative armor, then the primary warhead penetrates the base armor. Javelin is capable of destroying any main battle tank in the world today.

    I’m convinced we all have a little pocket dragon.Not a demon exactly, more like a wizard who’s sometimes quiet and subdued but always there watching, smoldering – capable of igniting at any provocation. Mine’s name is Tempus Fugit and lately he’s been quite active. I feel him breathing down my neck even when at rest.As a temporary appeasement Raj and I are going an a vacation “up north” this week so posts will be short. But when we return he will require some form of ongoing accommodation so expect something along the lines of more “open threads” and fewer post-posts....
  • SpaceX says Crew Dragon capsule exploded due to exotic titanium fire

    Teslarati ^ | 07/15/2019 | Eric Ralph
    ... Crew Dragon’s explosion was unrelated to the spacecraft’s propellant tanks, Draco maneuvering thrusters, or SuperDraco abort engines. Rather, the cause lies in a more exotic and unanticipated chemical/material interaction between a plumbing valve, liquid oxidizer, and a helium-based pressurization system. According to Hans Koenigsmann, SpaceX is approximately 80% of the way through what is known as the fault tree, ….SpaceX executive was fairly confident that the results presented on July 15th would be representative of the final conclusion. The ultimate (likely) cause of Crew Dragon’s extremely energetic and destructive explosion centers around the spacecraft’s extensive SuperDraco/Draco plumbing and its...

    Bazillions of adult Game of Thrones fans may currently be preoccupied with dragons, and the mother of dragons and that giant dragon-killing-dart machine — but one girl in New Zealand is trying to get serious about the real-life study of dragons. So much so that the 11-year-old recently tried to tempt Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern into launching a dragon research program, with a little bit of telekinesis studies on the side. Unfortunately, the prime minister could not be bought. She said it was a no-go.
