## Subscription Fundraiser ##
- Dear All:
I'd like to say thank you to everyone for the letters of support over the
last week. I've put the subscription fundraiser link through PayPal online
Again, for $10 a month, you can not only help us support AAG, but also
contribute to our growth over the next few years.
Thus far, we've had about 20 subscribers, but to meet our budget needs, we
need to reach 1,000. If you believe in the site - what it stands for, what
we cover, and what we've achieved over the last four years, then please
subscribe, and please also email your friends and relatives to tell them
about American Antigravity.
I wouldn't ask for this help if I didn't need it: after years of trying
product sales, grant applications, and advertising on the web, I've found
that it's just a difficult medium to build a business around unless you
switch to a "members only" style approach - and that runs counter to
everything that American Antigravity stands for. I don't believe in
parceling out information in tiny little pieces for $20 each, and every time
I see a website online doing that, it makes me sick.
This is just as much your future as mine - is it fair to nail you for fees &
complicate your life with passwords just to read about it? However, I have
to balance this against being able to survive, and that's something that
gets more challenging with every passing day. That's why I'm asking for
volunteer subscriptions, and I'm going to work on adding additional member
services soon to help give you as much as possible for your contribution.
It's less than the price of a cup of coffee in the morning, so if you have
the chance, please subscribe.
Two days ago I posted an in-depth interview with Stanislav Adamenko on
emerging fusion technologies in the Ukraine - he's working on a new process
that can increase the efficiency of existing fusion techniques by 3 to 6
times over their current efficiency.
Beginning tomorrow, I'm going to share some of Paul Czysz technical notes on
hypersonic aircraft design. As the former chief scientist of the NASP
project, Czysz is one of the world's leading experts on hypersonic
propulsion. In "Aurora & Beyond", which I published in July, he described
not only his personal belief in the existence of the secret Aurora project,
but also talked about receiving calls from former colleagues telling him
that these hypersonic aircraft were built and have been flown.
I think this revelation is as important in it's own way was as the
breakthrough technologies that we cover, and as we begin to stabilize
American Antigravity's budget and expand, I can begin delivering more
stories, more video, and more interviews to you much more frequently. In
fact, one of my goals over time is to add staff writers to cover specific
focus areas to ensure that we provide the latest coverage for emerging
technologies in the most timely way possible.
We've got some interesting current projects coming up: one of them is our
attempt to measure the Hutchison Effect, using equipment kindly loaned to us
by inventor & electronics engineer Bill Alek from Intalek.Com. Our goal is
to try a completely new measurement by taking a reading directly from the
samples that Hutchison works with while the effect is happening, which might
just give us the magic we need to recreate this effect in a lab environment.
Additionally, we're working on a proposal to put Gennady Shipov's
reactionless drive onboard the Bigelow orbital station when it launches in
November. This is a joint project with Richard C. Hoagland and the
Enterprise Mission, and if successful, it will break new ground as the
world's first test of a reactionless drive in a zero-gravity environment.
