Microlattice: Boeing Introduces New Revolutionary Lightweight Metal

Boeing has released a video of its groundbreaking microlattice metal, which is “the world’s lightest material,” scientists say.

Microlattice is a 3D open-cellular polymer structure made out of small hollow metallic tubes, and represents a criss-cross diagonal pattern with small open spaces.

The video gives exciting examples of the substance’s possible use, such as new structural components in aerospace. Microlattice could save a lot of weight and make planes much more fuel-efficient:

Boeing Invents ‘Star Wars’ Style Force Field

'Star Wars' Style Force Field

Aircraft and military manufacturer Boeing has been granted a patent on a system that is designed to prevent explosion shockwaves from harming a target.

     A new patent granted to aircraft, defense and security company Boeing is taking its cues from science fiction. Just like the glowing energy shields seen protecting troops, machines and even spacecraft in Star Wars and Star Trek, the design — named “Method and system for shockwave attenuation via electromagnetic arc” — uses energy to deflect potential damage.

As it is described, the system is not designed to prevent direct impact from shells or shrapnel; rather, it is designed to protect a target — such as a vehicle or building — from the damaging effects of shockwaves from a nearby impact. . . .

Boeing Acknowledges Anti-Gravity Project – Right out of The Facade

Nick Cook, long time writer for the prestigious Jane’s Defense Weekly and author of the book, The Hunt for Zero Point, has written a worthwhile essay on aerospace giant Boeing’s recent admission it is working on anti-gravity. The piece begins:

Boeing, the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer, has admitted it is working on experimental anti-gravity projects that could overturn a century of conventional aerospace propulsion technology if the science underpinning them can be engineered into hardware.

The effort has become public as a result of a briefing document obtained by Jane’s Defense Weekly. The project is being run out of Boeing’s Phantom Works facility in Seattle. My favorite part of the revelation is that Boeing is “trying to solicit the services of a Russian scientist who claims he has developed anti-gravity devices in Russia and Finland.”

That scientist’s name? Dr. Evgeny Podkletnov. Sound familiar? It will if you’ve read The Facade.

How ’bout that?
