Railguns, Gauss Guns, OH MY!

Excellent examples of a real world rail gun, gauss gun theory, working disc thrower, 40w lasers, microwave oven guns.. Makes unreal tournament look real!

"Anything is a weapon if you swing it right".
The discovery of electricity came hand-in-hand with the realization that it could be use to harm and kill living things. In 1745, with the invention of the Leyden Jar (the first type of capacitor ever developed, invented in the University of Leiden, Netherlands), high power electrical discharges became a possibility, and with them came numerous salon shows where these discharges would be used to electrocute birds, rats and other small animals. Thomas Edison used AC power to electrocute cats, dogs, a horse, and even a 3-ton elephant. He also created the first electric chair, which ran on DC power and almost set the person to be executed on fire (nowadays they are AC). As our knowledge of electricity expanded so did the uses to which this most versatile form of power has been put to.
My research on electromagnetic weapons does not have as its goal to produce actual weapons but rather to explore some of the very interesting possibilities that this field can have for the benefit of mankind. No Rail Gun, Coil Gun or LASER will ever substitute a firearm. There is more than enough firepower in even a small pistol to accomplish the goal it is intended for and making that pistol fire a projectile through electromagnetic means would only mean making it larger, heavier, more expensive and less practical. On the other hand, no chemical propulsion system will ever approach the velocities obtainable through electromagnetic means, and the possibilities for hypervelocity acceleration are endless: Materials synthesis, testing, welding, satellite and space station micro debris shield development, transportation, and others... Similarly, Electromagnetic Radiation Weapons may be used to disable communications and electrical devices without the need for casualty-causing explosives... With this in mind, here is a small sample of some of my research in the field to date...

New debate: "Gravity is only a theory, teach Intelligent Falling as well"

With the intense debate over Intelligent Design still on the nation's minds, a new battle looks set to emerge: Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

Meet HVD - 1 Terabyte of Storage, Twice as Fast as a Hard Drive

HVDs - Holographic Versatile Discs, can store up to 3.9 terabytes of information (that's nearly 4000 gigabytes). Their transfer rate is also twice that of modern-day hard drives. Could these not only replace DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, but even harddrives? They are almost ready to start rolling out commercially at 1 terabyte per disc.
