What was the Caspian Sea Monster?

Long ago and far away lived a unique large fast mechanical monster of which you may have never heard. The Caspian Sea Monster was a huge 311 mph hover jet built by the Soviet Union.

(Video) Flying Machines of the Future

A swarm of autonomous drones giving a light show in a building during a TED talk is mesmerizing and amazing to watch. It starts at around 8:18. Highly recommended.

A Rare $204,000 Penny

A rare bronze penny sold for $204K recently, below the $1 million+ experts expected.

US Army Seeks Biodegradable Bullets to Sprout Plants

Ballistic Missile Emergency Alert To People In Hawaii, 1/13/2018, 8:08 AM

It is nice to know there would be a warning in a missile attack, but what a doozy of false alarm, if it was that. Perhaps there really was a missile headed for Hawaii and we secretly shot it down? Hawaii residents and visitors received shocking mobile push alerts Saturda morning warning of an approaching … Continue reading

Amazing Dancing Jet, Is It Real? Not Exactly.

In this impressive video you can see that the aerodynamic properties of this jet are irrelevant in hover mode. The wings are not being used to create lift. From this, it is clear that one could have any shape for a jet powered flying object. But is this what it seems? No. The caption for … Continue reading
