Welded is the term the engineer used to describe the process of putting the ruby together with the alloy. It wasn't aluminum, and I really do not remember exactly what it was used for, other than some sort of inspection point.

The engineer did not fully understand the process. There was one specialist who did the work. The process was probably something as you described.

NO. This was all part of the collider I got to tour.

Off to work.

Collider's are an amazing thing!

Additionally, fusing rock to an alloy is not unheard of. It all depens on the alloy, what has been crosslinked to it and its' composition.

As for everything else, I am not going to into gov't and conspiracies, what not. But the other stuff that you mentioned GL is pretty cool! That's a pretty awesome job, and I can say that because I am nerdy chemical engineer

Darn it, I was certain you were hinting toward ufo. My head has always been in the stars I went to bed last night thinking for certain we had sort of confirmation from such a reliable source. Thought aluminum would have been a good base for an alien spacecraft due to being lowly conductive, and cost effective. But, money can't be a factor for aliens. Shit, I'd make my ufo of silver, or copper, or even brass

Thanks again Glwanabe for taking time out of your busy schedule. You've obviously seen some remarkable things. Sounds like a great thread topic! Hope you find time to share some more cool SHIAAT

The whole idea of reverse engineering advanced technology is not as easy as some people think it is.

Think about this.

Take an Ohio class nuclear sub, and go back in time and give the boat to Columbus. We are talking about a time span of about 500 years. There is almost nothing on that boat that would be of use to them. A fiberglass galley tray to carry food would be a technological marvel to them, and we use it as a throwaway item. Sure, they would recognize forks and spoons, and a few items but for the most part the technology is so far beyond them they would have no idea where to start.

If you took that boat and gave it to the Navy of the 1940's they would have a far better idea of what to do, but would still be lost with a huge amount of the technology. That is only 60 years behind us.

An alien race that is thousands or a million years more advanced than we are. We would be no better than Columbus looking at the nuclear sub, and probably be in even worse shape to figure stuff out. Look at how everyday technology has changed in the just the last 20 years, or even 10.

As far as the original vids of jet contrails. Do you understand what is happening in this picture?

Condensation mixes with cold air and freezes.

The low pressure zone created by the acft's upper surface has lowered the air temperture to the dewpoint. This has caused the water vapor to condense, and become visable for a brief time as the acft passes.

Freezing does not have to occur. The ambient air only needs to be cooled to the dewpoint. Dewpoint varies with the amount of water vapor present at that time.

Current metar for Houston airport. Bolded is the temp, and dewpoint in C.
21C is about 70F.


METAR KIAH 271653Z 23008KT 10SM FEW041 SCT250 32/21 A3001 RMK AO2 SLP161 T03220211

There is a 9 degree spread from ambient to dewpoint. Approx lapse rate is 2' per 1K in altitude. So from this you could estimate clouds may form at about 4500ft above the ground. The "FEW041" means there are just a few clouds present at 4100ft above the ground.
