ITER, the international fusion reactor being built in France, will stand 10 stories tall, weigh three times as much as the Eiffel Tower, and cost its seven international partners $18 billion or more. The result of decades of planning, ITER will not produce fusion energy until 2027 at the earliest. And it will be decades before an ITER-like plant pumps electricity into the grid. Surely there is a quicker and cheaper route to fusion energy. read more
Robert Rankin Doggart ran for Congress in Tennessee last year as an independent, winning 6.4 percent of the vote. He is also an ordained minister in the Christian National Church. Doggart was arrested last month after he was recorded on a wiretapped phone talking about his intention to take a private militia to Hancock and burn down a mosque and schools while using deadly force on anyone who resisted. "Our small group will soon be faced with the fight of our lives. We will offer those lives as collateral to prove our commitment to our God," said Doggart in a Facebook post. "We shall be Warriors who will inflict horrible numbers of casualties upon the enemies of our Nation and World Peace." read more
Fox News has obtained documents which reveal what U.S. intelligence agencies knew about the Benghazi attack and weapons traveling from Libya to Syria back in 2012.
Catherine Herridge reported this morning on "America's Newsroom" that a Defense Intelligence Agency memo from Sept. 16, 2012, concluded that the Benghazi terror attack was planned at least 10 days in advance to coincide with 9/11 and was in retaliation for a drone strike that killed an al Qaeda strategist. The memo was copied to the National Security Council, the State Department and the CIA.
"The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for the [U.S.] killing of Aboyahiye (Alaliby) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center buildings," the memo said.
Judicial Watch obtained the memos by suing in federal court.
It's 6-foot-2, with laser eyes and vise-grip hands. It can walk over a mess of jagged cinder blocks, cut a hole in a wall, even drive a car. And soon, Leo, Lockheed Martin's humanoid robot, will move from the development lab to a boot camp for robots, where a platoon's worth of the semiautonomous mechanical species will be tested to see if they can be all they can be.
The discovery of a 'left-handed' magnetic field that pervades the universe could help explain a long standing mystery -- the absence of cosmic antimatter. read more
