Certainly looks like a black project machine to me. Of course the military denies it.
Dale Vince, managing director of wind farm operator Ecotricity, said: “They [scientists] looked at all the broken parts of the turbine, the parts that were left standing at the top and examined the land around the bottom of the turbine looking for debris.
“But it was actually by examining the ring of bolts that hold the blade on that the examiners were able to say definitely it wasn’t a collision that caused this problem.”
Mr Vince said he expected a full explanation into the cause of the damage in two weeks.”There is a ring of about 30 bolts and they exhibit what examiners term as classic fatigue signs.
“They’ve ruled out bolt failure and are looking for the cause either side of the bolts in one of the components.”
He said manufacturers had checked 1,000 turbines of the same design all over the world and it was thought the problem was a “one-off“.
Rats. So much for for an aerial Chuthullu. Lovecraft would be disappointed.
The US military will be half machine and half human by 2015, a military expert told an audience on Wednesday.
Speaking before a group at the Technology Entertainment and Design (TED) conference, military expert Peter Singer said the implementation of robot soldiers was near.
“We are at a point of revolution in war, like the invention of the atomic bomb,” Singer said.
“What does it mean to go to war with US soldiers whose hardware is made in China and whose software is made in India?”
The US military has already made great strides in unmanning the battlefield. The US uses attack drones and bomb-handling robots, and custom war video games have been used as recruiting tools.
We’re bound and determined to build Terminator type shit, aren’t we?
We might as well all lay down in front of a subway train!
