Submarine Propulsion and Internet web sources
Let us discuss the patent for the Submarine, which is now in the public domain, not that any foreign governments ever cared since they have been building them for years. Since my Grandfather built the first Ring Gyro at Stanford Research years back, I think it wise to discuss these things in a modern context. The device he built is now called a Laser Ring Gyro Inertia Guidance system which is not nearly the size of the original the first one ever built by my Grandfather was six feet in diameter and six feet high and was used in a submarine after it was perfected. Today you can make one in a small box with a computer chip about 3 inches by three inches. Proving Moore's Law in more ways than one. So if you were going to build a submarine right now how would you build it? What would power it? What would be its limitations on performance? Could it also fly? Go on land? Who would you pay to build it? How fast could it go? Well we could use a Hydrogen fuel Cell, actually that has already been done and by the way it works fine. No more, Red Octobers, here is some history leading up to this discussion you may find rather interesting.
Some of this is significant to me because my Uncle was in charge of a Nuclear Submarine in days gone by. Yes, I know interesting family right? There are so many interesting designs for submarines and under water exploratory vehicles and they run on all kinds of different ideas;
You see those darn Germans are always building something cool, but then again so are we;
and if any one out there thinks we do not have underwater superiority like we do air superiority
then they have been smoking too much Iraqi grass. In a comparison of possible propulsion units one might ask why not use this technology of Hydrogen cells anywhere that air is not needed. Bingo.
this is exactly my thoughts on this matter. You know this really no revelation because we have known about this technology for years;
I mean submarines have been around since before the civil war and Hydrogen Cell technology around the turn of the 1900's that's right? So let us compare types of propulsion that can be used in submarines? How about like a bicycle, people power? Sure it has been done before.
and since then we have come with many different types of propulsion all with different characteristics for anti-detection, efficiency, speed and power against currents.
Did you know that even Pakistan has submarines and it has nuclear weapons? Scary thought right?
And Taiwan too
This is why we need satellites and fast moving unmanned subs to intercept if necessary. But it is difficult that is why drug runners use submarine remote control units to import drugs so no one can detect them; they have the budget obviously;
and we are now finding ways to prevent that from happening too.
There are so many uses for submarines from underwater mining, sea life expeditions, sunken treasure seekers, military safety, under water base building, etc.
How a submarine works is very simple actually. This may account for it's many variants;
Submarines are of huge benefits to mankind

Why Can't Our Brain Process What We See Faster?
Many who admire the excellent design of Mother Nature and the gift of vision and the enhancements thru evolution wonder; Why Can't Our Brain Process What We See Faster? A paper by G. Bugmann and J.
When the Egypt Exploration Fund was created they had memoranda and articles of incorporation that directed the funding for site excavations which showed promise of being outside the Bible Narrative - should not be researched! This troublesome kind of bias is beyond reproach because sites like Memphis have been built over and for all intents and purposes destroyed. In the efforts of people like Schliemann (Troy) and Evans (Crete) to uncover their dreams that led from the 'myths' of Homer they also confused and made horrible mistakes that allow debunking science to discredit artifacts that would have proven valuable.
Space Travel - Human Innate Bonding to ELF - Extremely Low Frequencies of Planet Earth
Human innate bonding to ELF - Extremely Low Frequencies of planet Earth will be a problem in space travel for the future. How do we know this? We know because insanity seems to very often coincide with mental illness.
Why Condition Your Boiler Water?
A boiler is used for generating steam. It does this by heating water to its boiling point, after which steam will evaporate from it.
Super Volcano: Can The Disaster Be Prevented?
It maybe possible to apply a rogue wave theory and some mathematical formulas of fluid dynamics to the problem of superplumes (theory) of volcanic activity to get them to erupt outside areas of high populations. This would be done by triggering events into the liquid magma underneath the surface.
Mars Surface Exploration and AFF
As we study more and more about Mars we know there is life. Unfortunately in many regions of the planet it is not so evident.
The Fertilization Process and Implications of Test Tube Babies
Through the wonders of science, infertile couples who were previously unable to bear children, due to reasons such as blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count, low egg quantities or advanced age of the mother, are now able to conceive through in-vitro fertilization. The results are babies known as test-tube babies which are technically conceived outside the womb.
The Joy of Recycling
I have always been an advocate of recycling. Even though I am not always convinced of its financial viability, I am thoroughly convinced of its value as a means of increasing public awareness of the cost of our consumerism.
Paternity Testing - Are You Raising Someone Elses Child?
The dawn of the DNA testBack in the 1700s, the best way to determine paternity was by a good hard look and the child, followed by a good hard look at the father. Enough coincidences and maybe a relationship could be proposed.
A Case for Human Machine Visual Interface
Animation of personified reality is intriguing, memorable and interesting as well. Perhaps we ought to remember this when letting kids watch cartoons of attacking counter parts? Or maybe this is a good way to help them better understand the Machiavellian characteristics of the species before they enter the real world, where everything is not so warm and fuzzy.
Micro Blimps Cleaning the Air in Buildings to Eliminate Anthrax spores
Presently mini-blimps are being deployed in government leadership buildings as sensor units to identify biological threats in the air. We believe this new technology being deployed in this way is a most excellent use of such technology.
DNA Testing Has Changed Everything
Since its discovery 20 years ago, the use of DNA for human identity and relationship testing has emerged as a powerful tool in both civil and criminal justice systems. DNA testing can reveal whether two or more individuals are related as well as determining the nature of their relationship.
Moon Rover Robotic Concept; Planetary Exploration
I propose a beach ball hopping robotic planetary explorer, which could work in swarms, instead of a larger rover, which might be stuck in the lunar dust or red sands of Mars. One interesting concept is in a white paper by Paolo Fiorini entitled; "A Hopping Robot for Planetary Exploration" in which the robot has several design configurations all weighing considerable amount.
God Created Man, 5000 years ago?
Well it is written that God created man 5000 years ago, there can be no doubt about it. The Holy scripture guarantees that is in fact how it exactly happened? Oh really? So how do you explain the fossil record, life on mars and dinosaur bones? Oh, you cannot explain that? I see, but you still wish to debate the works in the various religions and completely factual and to be followed literally then? Hmm? Okay, then I have a book that, I personally recommend that you do not read:"The Seven Daughters of Eve" By Bryan Sykes.
Making a Lightening Storm?
Here is a very basic concept idea/plan to harvest energy from Lightening. It is done in an artificial chamber, simulating weather in the atmosphere, but under exact and controlled circumstances; still in the incubation-thinking phase.
Is Your Brain Really Necessary?
The reason for the apparently absurd question in the title is the remarkable research conducted at the University of Sheffield by neurology professor the late Dr. John Lorber.
Methods of Improving Boiler Efficiency
With the rising cost of fuel prices, industries that use steam boilers for heating or power generation are hard pressed to operate at peak efficiencies.While steam consumption, leakages, and other heat transmission losses can contribute to the overall energy bill, this article focuses on the heart of the steam generator - the boiler.
The Future Enhancements of Tele-Robotics
Today we have already available UAVs, which will soon have the capacity of operating together in swarms, controlled from another nearby aircraft. We have UAVs, which can be flown by a pilot sitting at a desk more than 1000 miles away.
Chimpanzees and Humans a lot in common
Those who study chimpanzees are often amazed completely with the abilities of that species. They tend to be able to raise their level of awareness and concentration to a completely higher level than we ever believed.
Stem Cells (The Truth)
The much publicized stem cell research debate focusing on moral arguments is off target with the goal of real progress in the direction of human physiological benefits potential. No matter what side of this issue you come down on, practical considerations ultimately trump this emotionally clouded subject.
