Starshot with Stanton Friedman
Get the coffee going, get the tea or a beverage of choice. Get in that comfy chair , settle in and get ready for an exceptional ride tonight. Tonight the legend returns: Stan Friedman is here tonight.
There is a new initiative put together by Stephen Hawking, the uber rich Yuri Millner and Face Book's Mark Zuckerberg called: Breakthrough Starshot. Essentially what they want to do is put one hundred million dollars behind a project that will launch a robobotic spacecraft at one fifth the speed of light to the Alpha Centauri star system, at a distance of 4.37 light years: or 25 trillion miles.
In order to achieve this feat, they will utilize something called a starchip & lightsail. The idea is to propel the craft along by light. The weight of the craft would be less than a piece of paper.
Stan Friedman is a nuclear physicist that held a top secret clearance at McDonnell Douglas where he worked on advanced classified fission and fusion projects. He is also warmly called by all "The Father Of Roswell" because of his ground breaking research and series of books on the subject, a story that was all but dead until Stan championed the cause and dove right into the fray.
