What is the New Technology?
Until recently, the United States had the biggest particle accelerator in the World, the Tevatron.
The recently built Large Hadron Collider in Europe is now bigger than the Tevatron.
For the last 30 years, scientists have thought that particle acceleration would lead the way in finding new matter, which could result in discovering new technologies.
Because of the Tevatron, the United States has led the field in this search for new matter.
This year the Tevatron is to shut down.
The United States were the second nation to put a man into orbit around the Earth. They were the first to put a man on the Moon.
NASA is leading the field in pushing the boundaries of space exploration.
Although US astronauts may be able to hitch rides with spacecraft from other nations, with the launching of the last space shuttle, the American space program has effectively come to a halt.
Recent Alien Contact?
I can fully understand that the United States is currently under going some rough financial times and the closing of these two programs, would certainly relieve some of the pressure as they are both expensive.
I however, do not believe that this is the reason. Although saving some money may, in one sense, be part of the reason.
I believe that these closures are pre-emptive measures to yes, save money but also to relieve experts in their fields in order to launch one new program that will require both the finance and personnel.
This new program will introduce new technology just discovered. This technology may have been learned from a recent contact with aliens or perhaps from undisclosed findings from the Tevatron. I believe that what ever the source, this new technology will make all its predecessors obsolete.
There are three reasons on which I base my belief:
Firstly, I do not believe that the United States would give up on a race they were winning. Make financial cutbacks perhaps but not abandon the projects completely.
Secondly, I suspected a soon to be released technology ever since the Department of Defense, offered $500,000 to anybody who could get them “in on it”. See http://hubpages.com/hub/Win-500-000
Thirdly, I suspected a major break through in space exploration ever since the United Nations appointed an Ambassador for Aliens. See http://hubpages.com/hub/United-Nations-Appoints-Ambassador-for-Aliens
To me, the only questions that are left unanswered are what is this new technology and where did it come from?
