AmericanAntigravity.com Rebooted -- Again

For the second time now, Tim Ventura has started rebuilding his excellent site covering  a wide array of topics in the directly-related fields of anti-gravity, lifters, UFOs, as well as tangent fields of free energy, weird science and disruptive technologies.

by Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

 


Years ago, beginning in 2002, one of the great pillars of the alternative media field was Tim Ventura's AmericanAntiGravity.com website. He had over 50 written, 60 audio, and nearly 100 video interviews on a wide array of topics in the directly-related fields of anti-gravity, lifters, UFOs, as well as tangent fields of free energy, weird science and disruptive technologies.

You might remember it back when it looked like this:

It went dormant in about 2006-7, with virtually no new content due to Ventura's burnout, frustration, and other personal issues.

Then late in December of 2009, Ventura announced he was getting it going again.  Unfortunately, he also launched a new infrastructure so all the previous links were dead.  We posted the following bullet in our news announcing this:

That lasted for maybe two or three months, after which it went dormant again.

Now, he's starting over.  All previous content is gone, and he's started posting pages, warming up the leftovers from before.  Again it is great content.  But I don't know that it would be wise to just link to his stuff.  If you like it, you might be best served to make a copy of it somewhere and link to it there so it's not lost.

Here's what he wrote in a LinkedIn email announcement of the "Re-Launch":

I'm not 25 anymore: it's been 10 years, and I've got a different perspective. I've also still got a sizeable audience after all this time, so I wanted to put up a more mature, more sophisticated site. The focus is on disruptive science and technology, NOT just on aerospace, antigravity, or warp-drives. 

I'm not trying to make a profit with American Antigravity: at this point it's just a tech-blog, and I'm happy with that. My own interest is in interviewing intelligent people with innovative ideas, so that's what I'm going to do. I try to avoid interviewing the real wing-nuts, but ultimately my goal is to provide information and context, and then let you make your own decisions. 

I've been working VERY hard on a clean, well-organized interface. Everything seems to work smoothly at this point, and I expect that will help people have a good experience on the site. It also has a great search feature & automated "related topics" to help you find threads on specific topics. 

If you like the site, please recommend it to a friend.

Here's an excerpt from what he wrote in his first post re-launching the site on September 23, 2011.

"The goal of this project is to rebuild American Antigravity as an easy-to-use portal to allow you to quickly locate material relevant to your own interest areas.

"I don't claim that every subject that I've covered is real: the truth is that I simply don't know. I try only to interview credible people, but it's sometimes difficult to tell, and I urge you to be your own judge of right and wrong, and not take my (or anyone else's) opinion on any particular subject's veracity. I can tell you this: exotic technologies ARE real – I've seen some really groundbreaking things with my own eyes on several occasions."

To go back through time, you can visit http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://americanantigravity.com 

In an email to me just now, he wrote: "I'm going to start doing some interviews again, as soon as I finish retyping all my story & interview descriptions."

Here's an index of his new content.  32 items in 16 days -- two per day on average.  Let's hope he keeps it up this time.

Harold Berndt on the Disclosure Project

October 9th, 2011

Harold Berndt on the Disclosure ProjectHarold Berndt is an incredibly determined man, and with two decades as a top-producing real estate agent under his belt he's got the experience to get things done. His interest in UFO's started after a sighting in 2004 that became his inspiration to start looking for answers, something that eventually led him to the Disclosure Project. Since then he's gone UFO-spotting with Dr. Steven Greer and helped John Hutchison do research - two of the many remarkable experiences  that we discuss in this interview.

The Grassy Knoll Photos

The Grassy KnollIn June 2010 I took a business trip to a conference in Dallas, Texas, and had the opportunity to visit the Grassy Knoll with Steve Lorimer, a business associate. The conference was held at Renunion Center in downtown Dallas, and we stayed busy enough at the conference that we nearly forgot about the Grassy Knoll until the day before we had to fly back. I looked up the address on Mapquest, and to my surprise found that the Grassy Knoll is only a couple of blocks away from Reunion Center, so we took our rental car over to check it out.

Stanislav Adamenko on Nucleosynthesis

October 5th, 2011

Stanislav Adamenko on NucleosynthesisDr. Stanislav Adamenko is the director of Proton 21, a Ukrainian nuclear research lab experimenting with nucleosynthesis, the process of building atoms from the ground up. They've devised a new process for nucleosynthesis that's initiated by accelerated electrons to create a shockwave in teardrop shaped sample targets. The shockwave generates pressures normally found only in a nuclear detonation, overcomes the Coulomb barrier for target atoms, and generates what Adamenko claims are synthetic atoms.

The Original Hutchison Effect Footage

October 4th, 2011

The Original Hutchison Effect FootageThe Hutchison Effect is featured on television quite regularly, and in most of those programs you'll see a few seconds of the Hutchison Effect at a time interspliced with commentary by talking heads like Col. John Alexander, George Hathaway, and usually John Hutchison himself. The grainy, blurred footage typically shows a few "classic" spots of the Hutchison Effect, such as a levitating bowling ball, flying broom, liquifying metal cylinder, glowing metal file, and a metal cylinder spontaneously crumbling into dust on a table.

John Hutchison

October 4th, 2011

John HutchisonI've known John Hutchison for close to a decade now, and I know him well: I've visited his lab in New Westminster several times and spent many hours there. I've spent countless hours talking with him on the phone, and I've been an advocate for his research for a long time. I've met George Hathaway, interviewed Mel Winfield, and talked with John Alexander and a other military scientists who have studied his work. The more I learn about John's life, the more impressive he is, both as an innovator as well as a human being.

Lisa Randall on M-Theory

October 3rd, 2011

Dr. Lisa Randall on M-TheoryDr. Lisa Randall is a leading scientific authority on M-theory, an incredibly powerful model of theoretical physics that offers solutions to problems that are off-limits to conventional physics. The core idea is that the there are 11 dimensions in the universe, contained on different membranes. Billions of years ago, two of those membranes collided in space, and the overlap between them became the big bang. M-theory offers big answers to questions about how our universe began, but that's not what I wanted to speak with her about.

Kiril Chukanov on Zero-Point Energy

October 3rd, 2011

Kiril Chuckanov on Zero Point EnergyDr. Kiril Chukanov believes that he can extract zero-point energy from a stabilized ball lightning plasmoid, and he's built the "Angelina" series of zero-point energy generators to prove it. They're massive devices, and look a bit like oversized industrial microwave ovens – and to the best of my knowledge, that's what they are. My understanding of his work is that he's using microwaves to stimulate the ball lightning plasmoids in a baryometric chamber, and then extracting what he claims is zero-point energy.

Larry Oja on Brown's Gas

October 2nd, 2011

Larry Oja on Brown's GasI caught up with Larry Oja at TeslaTech, where he was demonstrating a Brown's Gas electrolyzer. This sounds more complicated than it is: add water, plug it into a wall outlet, and it produces Brown's Gas on demand. The next question is obvious – why do we want to make Brown's Gas? The answer is simple: Brown's Gas is made from water, and when you burn it, it turns back into water. It's 100% environmentally friendly. Brown's Gas is inexpensive and easy to make, and in today's energy market that makes it hot stuff.

Gabriella Draney on Alternative Energy Investment

October 2nd, 2011

Gabriella Draney on Alternative Energy InvestmentFinancial specialist Gabriella Draney works for Mutual Capital Alliance, a venture-capital firm exploring the market opportunities in alternative energy investment. This isn't an easy task, as there are a lot of unworkable ideas and more than a few downright scams presented as solid alternative energy investments. Even after separating the wheat from the chaff, investors are then tasked with determining whether the technology they're reviewing can find commercial acceptance or will fail in the marketplace.

Robert Baker Jr. on High Frequency Gravitational Waves

October 2nd, 2011

Robert Baker Jr. on High Frequency Gravitational WavesGravitational waves were predicted by Albert Einstein nearly 100 years ago, and at the time it was realized that they had the potential to transmit energy as a form of gravitational radiation. Astronomers typically look for low frequency gravitational waves in stellar events, but Dr. Robert Baker Jr. believes that we can create high frequency gravitational waves here on earth in the laboratory. In this interview we discuss some initial applications for high frequency gravitational wave technology.

Ed Dames on Remote Viewing

October 2nd, 2011

Ed Dames on Remote ViewingMajor Ed Dames, long retired, is basically the spokesman for remote viewing, which is a structured approach to psychic clairvoyance perfected by the military in the 70′s. The idea behind remote viewing is pretty neat: it assumes that everyone has some level of psychic ability to "see with the mind", but that there's a lot of noise interfering with the signal. The military's approch to the signal-to-noise problem was to have teams of psychics focus on the same event, and then throw out all the data that didn't match.

The Ramtha School of Enlightenment

October 1st, 2011

Ramtha School of EnlightenmentA while back I was invited to a guest lecture at the Ramtha School of Enlightenment. It was an exciting proposition, and I was secretly hoping to find enlightenment, but didn't find it at the Ramtha School of Enlightenment. The problem wasn't them, it was me: I had my own issues to solve, although I didn't realize it at the time. In any case, I'm pretty sure that I was the first journalist to visit the Ramtha School of Enlightenment, and I attempted to describe what I experienced in a balanced way in this article.

Ralph Suddath on Water Pollution

October 1st, 2011

Ralph Suddath on Water PollutionWater pollution is a global problem, and we've got just as many issues with water pollution here in the United States as anybody else in the world. According to Ralph Suddath, we've got worse problems, because chlorinating our water to kill germs is creating supergerms that science is only beginning to discover. Most people who are aware of our water pollution issues drink bottled water, but recent studies show harmful bacteria in that as well. How bad is our water pollution? Bad enough that Suddath is leaving the country.

Jeff Hayes on Tesla Turbines

October 1st, 2011

Jeff Hayes on Tesla TurbinesThe Salton Sea in California contains enough geothermal energy locked in salt brine to meet the entire electrical needs of the United States 20 times over if it could be harnessed electrically. That requires spinning a turbine, and only the Tesla turbine is durable enough for it. Jeff Hayes discusses the engineering challenges involved with harnessing geothermal energy with a Tesla turbine system, as well as the unique characteristics of this the Tesla turbine that allow it to outperform conventional bladed turbines.

Pete Bitar on Non-Lethal Weapons

September 30th, 2011

Pete Bitar on Non-Lethal WeaponsPete Bitar is the founder of Xtreme Alternative Defense Systems, and he's got a vision. The Anderson, Indiana based defense-startup is out to rewrite the rules of engagement for law-enforcement and the military by producing a new breed of Non-Lethal Weapons to disable an attacker at a distance without causing permanent injury. He joins us to discuss the future of non-lethal weapons and explain what makes XADS one of the hottest new non-lethal weapons developers of the 21st century.

Ron Milione on UFO Detectors

September 30th, 2011

Ron Milione on UFO DetectorsLooking for ET? Put down the binoculars, because Dr. Ron Milione has a magnetometer-based UFO detector that tracks airborne UFOs regardless of atmospheric conditions. Milione moonlights as an instrumentation designer for the "Ghost Hunters" TV series, so moving from ghosts to UFO's isn't that big of a switch – especially for Milione. The PhD electrical engineer is a fan of anomalous phenomenon, and a firm believer in the measurability of events. That's why he built the UFO detector.

The Nazi Bell

September 30th, 2011

The Nazi BellAlthough first described in Igor Witkowski's "The Truth About The Wunderwaffe", the Nazi Bell didn't gain notoriety until Nick Cook's "The Hunt for Zero Point", and ever since speculation about the Nazi Bell has run wild. Witkowski himself believes that the Nazi Bell was an advanced propulsion device based on German research in Quantum Mechanics, and Nick Cook seems to largely agree with him. However, others speculate that the Nazi Bell may have been anything from a water tower to a time travel experiment.

Paul Moller on Flying Cars

September 29th, 2011

Paul Moller on Flying CarsFlying Cars! When can I buy one? Back in the 50′s they were sure we'd all have flying cars by 2000. In the 60′s the Jetsons used their flying car for grocery shopping, and in the 70′s and 80′s Popular Science was running articles on flying cars pretty regularly. Over time they've become a staple of science fiction movies, with flying cars in Blade Runner, The Fifth Element, and Back to the Future 2, just to name a few. Those examples are fictional, so we've interviewed Paul Moller to find out when we can expect to see flying cars in real life.

Matt Savinar on Peak Oil

September 29th, 2011

Matt Savinar on Peak OilHubbert's Peak Oil isn't a myth: it's a reality that we're seeing played out in rising prices at the pump on a daily basis. The price of gas keeps rising because our supply of crude is declining. Big oil says the problem is a lack of refining ability due to strict regulations, but that's not the real problem. The simple truth is that we're running out of oil. That's why disasters like the Gulf of Mexico spill happen: because the easy oil is long gone, and companies like BP have to push harder, dig deeper, and drill in more extreme locations.

Vlad Aspel on Zero-Point Energy

September 29th, 2011

Vlad Aspel on Zero Point EnergyVlad Aspel is the self-confessed master, slave, and moderator of ZPEnergy.Com. It's not easy running one of the hottest breakthrough-energy forums online, but it certainly can be rewarding. ZPEnergy brings together scientists, engineers, and innovators from different walks of life to meet and collaborate on zero-point energy research. Make no mistake: Vlad's a revolutionary. The Guy Fawkes mask in his social networking profile pics is a testament to the past stigma of zero-point energy research and his tenacious drive to pursue it.

Russell Anderson on Electrogravitics

September 29th, 2011

Russell Anderson on ElectrograviticsBiefeld-Brown. The Searl Effect. Beamships. You name it, Russell Anderson's into it. For over 20 years, Anderson's approach to Electrogravitics is "if you build it, they will come", and as an avid contributor to science fairs, hobbyist magazines, and Electrographics social groups his philosophy is getting results. He doesn't just talk about Electrogravitics: he builds the devices, carefully documents his work, and then displays them for others as proof of concept demonstrations to create excitement and foster involvement.

Paul Czysz on Hypersonics

September 26th, 2011

Paul Czysz on HypersonicsThe name Aurora invokes awe in the aerospace industry. It's a Mach-6 hypersonic aircraft that nobody's sure exists. The technology for it was developed back in the 70′s using hypersonic wind-tunnel experiments conducted by Paul Czysz. Later on, he took that research to the Reagan administration's NASP project, with the goal of developing a hypersonic "Orient Express" capable of traveling from New York to Tokyo in 2 hours. However, NASP research was too expensive so the government shut it down – or did they?

Al Bielek on the Philadelphia Experiment

September 26th, 2011

Al Bielek on the Philadelphia ExperimentAl Bielek claims to have been at the center of the Philadelphia Experiment, one of the most controversial conspiracy theories of the 20th century. Did the United States Navy apply the research of Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, and others in an attempt to make a ship invisible? Did the USS Eldridge in fact become invisible during testing in the Philadelphia Navy Yard in 1943? Did it travel to another dimension? Bielek claims the answer to all these questions is yes, and provides details on how it worked and what went wrong.

Ted Loder on The Disclosure Project

September 25th, 2011

Ted Loder on The Disclosure ProjectUFOs and free energy. The Disclosure Project and SEAS power. Steven Greer, the frontman for these groups, appears on late-night talk radio all the time, but if you want an insider's view then you want Ted Loder. He's the man behind the scenes at both the Disclosure Project and SEAS power, and we caught up with him at STAIF for an exclusive interview. He knows all the Disclosure Project UFO testimony verbatim, and reviewed all the free energy proposals that SEAS has ever seen, and has decades of university experience.

Ralph Merkle on Cryonics

September 25th, 2011

Ralph Merkle on CryonicsSlow the heart rate, cool the body, and you've got hypersleep. Drain the blood, freeze the body, and you've got cryonics. While hypersleep is a staple technology in science fiction, cryonics is being refined in the real world, and Dr. Ralph Merkle is here to discuss it. Cryonics is an old technology: Walt Disney's been a corpsicle since the 60′s, but it takes more than liquid nitrogen to make cryonics work. The missing piece of cryonics is reviving the patient, but Merkle believes that nanotechnology and nanomedicine provide a solution.

Joseph Farrell on the Nazi Bell

Secrets of the Nazi BellNazi UFOs? Viktor Shauberger, Vril, and the Haunebu flying saucers are well known Nazi UFO mythology, but far less is known about the Nazi Bell. That's where Dr. Joseph Farrell comes in. His insatiable appetite for history puts him in the spotlight with the release of "SS Brotherhood of the Bell". He offers new insight into the history of the Nazi Bell and the Nazi SS group led by Hans Kammler that created it, along with historical context on decades of Nazi UFO mythology. Is the Nazi Bell a myth, or something more?

Bonnie Dunbar on Space

September 25th, 2011

Bonnie DunbarDr. Bonnie Dunbar shares with us her vision for the future of space and the aerospace industry, and talks with us about her past role as a NASA astronaut and her current work as the Director of the Museum of Flight in Seattle. She speaks about the value of collaboration in the aerospace community as well as the role of the Museum of Flight in preserving our aerospace history. Her experience is crucial in helping the museum provide an accurate picture of the past and shaping our dreams of the future.

Bill Ramsey on Time Travel

September 25th, 2011

Bill Ramsey on Time TravelTime travel? Parallel Dimensions? A while back I heard a rumor about a man who'd experienced them both firsthand. I tracked down Bill Ramsey, and he confirmed that something had happened but wasn't ready to talk about it. Time travel? Yes – although it took him a long time to put the experience into those words, and even longer before he was ready for an interview. In this exclusive, Bill speaks for the first time in public about time travel and parallel dimensions, and how a simple experiment sent him hurtling through time.

Engineering Wormholes

September 24th, 2011

Engineering WormholesPhysics says that faster-than-light travel is impossible, but how can mankind explore the stars without it? There is another solution: wormholes offer an opportunity to connect distant points in space, bypassing the need for FTL propulsion. Not only is the existence of wormholes supported by physics, but the convergence of computing and nanotechnology in modern science may provide new avenues of research for engineering wormholes to provide communications, energy generation, and even interstellar colonization.

Searl Effect Generator

September 23rd, 2011

Footage posted by Dr. Terry Moore on YouTube shows a single-roller Searl Effect Generator in operation. Moore describes these demonstrations as necessary for the patent-process in order to collect data required scientific data. SEG rotation in both videoclips is quite smooth and consistent with Searl's claims, despite the mock-up not being a fully-functional device. The Searl Effect is claimed to be a free energy and antigravity "prime mover" by John Searl, who has promoted it as a potential solution to future energy and transportation needs.

 

John Hutchison on The Hutchison Effect

September 23rd, 2011

John HutchisonSpontaneously melting metals. Objects flying around haphazardly. Strange glows manifesting in the air, and suddenly disappearing. The Hutchison Effect is one of the strangest and most well-documented physics anomalies ever discovered. It's been filmed dozens of times – at first on reels of Super-8 film in the early 80′s, and later by television crews from around the world. Numerous theories abound as to why it may happen, but the best person to ask about the effect is the person who discovered it, John Hutchison.

American Antigravity Archive

September 23rd, 2011\

American AntigravityI'm interested in exotic technologies, and like everybody in this area, I'm a bit of a collector. I've got an enormous digital library of audio, video, written stories + interviews, and graphics for a variety of topics in what I call "alternative science". The goal of this project is to rebuild American Antigravity as an easy-to-use portal to allow you to quickly locate material relevant to your own interest areas.

The title of my site, American Antigravity, is a bit of a misnomer – it started as a project to record my experiments with Lifters back in 2002, and quickly grew into a clearinghouse for media related to all types of innovative physics & engineering projects. It didn't take long before my own work shifted to interviewing scientists and inventors about theirs, and now I have over 50 written, 60 audio, and nearly 100 video interviews on a wide array of topics.

At least he doesn't just fizzle away, like TheVeryLastPageOfTheInternet or OSEN, whose content is just gone.

NOTE: You can disregard the statement below that says: "This commenting widget will be discontinued on October 1st, 2012".  Its only ECHO that is shutting down. We will be switching soon to DISQUS, after we sort out some issues in regard to the switchover. The changeover will be occurring in the next few weeks. Initially you will only see new comments (on DISQUS). It will take anything up to 48 hours to get the old comments from Echo reloaded. The downside is that they will be loaded (in Disqus) in date received order, and not the logical order you see here now (in other words some jumbling up will occur).

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.

   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
