On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start off talking about how according to reports, scientists in china claim they have successfully created a ‘working prototype of the impossible, reactionless engine, and say that they have already begun testing it orbit aboard their Tiangong-2 space laboratory. The controversial, radical and revolutionary fuel-free EmDrive has created a buzz in the scientific community after a paper published by scientists at NASA showed the technology works successfully. Then, a now-submerged Stone Age settlement has been mapped in the Baltic Sea, revealing how its ancient inhabitants lived along what was once a lagoon on the coast of Sweden some 9,000 years ago. The exceptionally well-preserved site was discovered about seven years ago, after divers came upon what are now considered to be the oldest stationary fish traps in northern Europe. It turns out that those fishing traps were a part of the Haväng site, which archaeologists now believe was once a lagoon environment where Mesolithic humans lived during parts of the year.
Then, Nick Redfern tells a story of an apparent sighting of a very strange water cryptic off the coast of British Columbia, Canada along with his wife and son back in the mid 1930’s. Then, researchers have warned it is already too late to stop killer robots – and say banning them would be little more than a temporary solution. University at Buffalo researchers claim ‘society is entering into a situation where systems like these have and will become possible. Elon Musk and Professor Stephen Hawking have both warned that artificial intelligence could develop a will of its own that is in conflict with that of humanity, and could herald dangers like powerful autonomous weapons. After the break Cam brings up some stories of human beings with incredible super human abilities. Did you know that people with real superpowers actually exist? People who possess incredible sight, stamina, and durability. But that’s not all. Some even possess the ability to project energy, have an uncanny memory, and even employ X-ray vision! So if you’ve ever wished you could have superpowers similar to Superman, the Hulk, Wolverine, or any other awesome superhero, guess what, its possible (sort of).
