That's what the BBC reporters claim anyway.
Not surprisingly, militaries across the world are also backing research in to quantum sensing.

Gravimeters in particular offer the potential for detecting your opponent's submarines, for instance. Gravity may be a weak force, but you can't shield against it.

So while stealth

old scientific electronics

Mar 12, 2019 - 9:45 AM - by vallero
I am a new member, (as in 20 minutes). I don't know if this the forum that I looking for, but it looked promising. A friend has been a collector of scientific instruments such as tube based electronics, vacuum systems etc. for many years. Being ancient (circa 1970) and tube based whether they will function or not is debatable. However he no longer wants them and they are free to anyone who wants them, and of course the recipient prepares and pays all shipping costs. That is something to... [Read More]

The BBC has the magnificent clip of the late André Previn from 1971, it might not play outside of the UK but even so...

He galvanised British music when he accepted the London Symphony Orchestra for a decade, from which platform he often appeared in televised and radio concerts. I saw... [Read More]

Do you think President R.A. Trump should consult with the Chinese?

I wonder if this so-called wall between U.S. and Mexico will work. The thought occurs to me that perhaps his lordship should consult with the Chinese as they have built a low dividing wall between themselves and Mongolia (I think ! LOL )

Gordon Banks, dies at 81 years. World's Greatest Goalkeeper?

Feb 12, 2019 - 6:56 AM - by G#Gill
G#Gill's Avatar
I felt privileged to speak to Gordon Banks on the telephone. He rang to book a charter on our charter/trip boat in the late 1980s. He was quietly spoken, very polite and grateful for my help ! I can remember saying to him that I was privileged to be able to speak to probably the finest goalkeeper in the world. He thanked me and sounded genuinely surprised that I knew who he was and that I'd said that to him !

OMG - there's nothing like the smell of home made bread baking.

I'm not much of a baker - my bread has been turning out - not burned !! I'm shocked.

I like Tucker Carlson. Often he makes me laugh, then other times I sit gagging.

I really like his perspective on blackface by the Virginia governor.

Wearing blackface is fairly common on the elite left.

Have you ever tried buying property relying on the pictures provided by Zillow - Redfin ?

I did.

I've been looking to buy a house in Washington State for @ year. I'd look several times daily to see if a new property came on the market.

I finally found a house - called my agent in WA she said looks good & I'll go & make a video for you. I said let's put in a offer right now & then you can go make a video of the house. My agent made the... [Read More]

Explain how male and female is not a creation.

Mickiel's Avatar
You ever wonder how non creationists explain male and female? Okay let's agree that it's an idea. Alright then who's idea? In raw evloution there cannot be an idea or a plan, because that would denote a personage , so that can only be used in creationism.

Evolution has no ideas. So what then is male and female? Its brilliant for one thing but "Why" male and female? Is it a concept that was self inheirtant and self developed? Who developed it? Well in evolution there... [Read More]

The background: UK could ban social media over suicide images, minister warns

I'm wondering how it differs from saying the UK will ban trains if the train operators don't stop people throwing themselves under their Intercity engines. Are facebook, instagram and pinternet, to name those mentioned in the article, meant to employ millions of mental health experts to preview every post for its potential health... [Read More]

It is a constant refrain of many politicians that they are for the people, not the special interests and lobbyists in Washington.

Truth is everybody has special interests they favor, just don't call it that.

Seems somebody figured out on how to capitalized on that. Lobbyists 4 Good

As Brexit was won, this needs to be implemented with a plan and strategy that would greatly benefit the UK.

We need leadership that can achieve this. Is PM May able to do this? The evidence suggests not by the rotten deal she proposed for Brexit.

May needs to resign as PM and we need a Pro-Brexit PM who can make Brexit a success which is not difficult to achieve.

I felt if the Syrian Kurds were to be wiped out they should have some record. I've barely heard of these people but I have heard Erdogan.

If this happens, Donald Trump wanted a wall named after him. I think what struck me was the casualness with which he consigned a people to death. America and Turkey's genocide of the Kurds.

I live in London. If there is a Kurd who makes it here I will give them and their family a place to sleep.

This is so darn cool.

In my early teens, I and my best friend would walk up, climb up nearby hills some 35 miles away from the ocean. There we would uncover evidence of sea life. Always wondered how long ago those items shells etc lived.

That was California here in Kansas I know of a place where and seen a shark tooth. Maybe I will go there chip some rock and see what I can find.
