Klingon Cloaking

06/20/2021 5:07 AM

The door has opened just a crack,and what I can see from here is exciting.

Imagine cloaking a macro-scale object from gravity,or spacetime or shielding from EMP and EM weapons. FTL anyone?

As cars have gotten safer when involved in accidents, they have gotten less safe in preventing them. When we used to just look over a shoulder when backing up, now we need back up cameras because visibility is obstructed by roof supports. Even front supports block visibility. This just cries out for cloaking technology.

This is interesting.

We don't even know what gravity is....it's not likely we could build something to shield ourselves from it, whatever it is...EMP shielding is easy enough...FTL, good luck with that....
