Re: Did "Morgan" ever "die" in a fiery car crash?

Noncommutative probability grabbed me, too, Henry. All I can say for now is "hunh." Ross Gunn and Townsend Brown must have had a long and evolving relationship over the years. By the time Townsend came to the NRL, the cutting edge in radio communications was mulitplex transmissions. Gunn h...

Re: Did "Morgan" ever "die" in a fiery car crash?

Thank you, Henry. It is wonderful to read Raymond's words again. Ted Gunderson's, not so much. Raymond, being guileless and naive, was easy to use and manipulate. You are so good at excavating the bones that are giving structure to this part of the story, which is very much the Silent Running story....

Re: Did "Morgan" ever "die" in a fiery car crash?

Henry, a few facts as I recall them from the time: Andrew and Raymond were not partners. Raymond was a math savant, without education, connection, or resources, who found Paul's forum long after Paul found Andrew. He was ill at the time, his last trip was to meet Linda et al, in Las Vegas. For the n...

Re: Did "Morgan" ever "die" in a fiery car crash?

BTW, David, and Future Readers Toward the end of his life, dear Trickfox would go on binges, and become quite weepy and despondent. It may be that he said what Andrew claims, but heresay cannot stand up againt his translation of the Montgolfier report. It is an valuable contribution to the extant To...

Yes, David, I have a copy, but as Linda is the author, I don't feel that it is mine to share.

Re: Did "Morgan" ever "die" in a fiery car crash?

David, Andrew was a college student when he first visited Josephine, Linda, and family in the eighties. He remained a supporter/promoter for many years after that. Something in the relationship went sour in the early teens. More than that, I cannot tell you. Personally, I never felt that Trickfox wa...

Re: Charles Buhler of Exodus Propulsion Technologies reports success

Buhler (if he was the author of the above) either missed the part about Townsend being a college drop out or he knows something we don't know. after Brown and his graduate school advisor, Dr. Paul Alfred Biefeld. If I apply the 50 year lookback (based on the period of time that top secrets can be he...

Re: Topside: Wilbert Smith and the Ottawa Flying Saucer Club

I really can handle text much faster and easier than I can handle video. Ditto. Nate, I think you have summarized the UFO field very eloquently, though I would put it a bit differently: Nobody knows nuttin'. I am so happy that your decades long diligent research was recognized in the video. I think...

Re: Topside: Wilbert Smith and the Ottawa Flying Saucer Club

If there are any direct connections between Harold Dudley and Townsend, I don't see them. Maybe I should have played with more Tinker Toys or stayed awake in science class. But there are a few places where the two might have crossed paths, workwise: He was in the Standards Lab at the time Townsend w...

Re: Aerogels & Party Balloons

David, I don't know of a direct connection between Townsend and aerogels, per se. If it is there, it might be through a manufacturing technology or a specific application. If something should turn up, I will let you know.

Re: About "The Space Brothers"

Random recollections, Nate. I recall that in his oral history, Louis Witten, scoffed at the idea that some Midwestern scientist had theorized that there could be lighter than air isotopes of bismuth, while saying that a guy named Townsend in France had discovered some sort of metamaterial? But Marti...

Re: About "The Space Brothers"

Holy cow, you are amazing, Nate. I am time limited, but stopping part way through your message to reply to this: (when in 1953 exactly did Linda see the Scout Ship model? and when exactly did Clara John cross Townsend's path?) Clara, I don't know but I believe Linda finished second grade in Zanesvil...

Re: About "The Space Brothers"

Nate, Rickles would probably find Townsend's letter to Hull very informative, though it may have been meant to be performative as well. Your post inspires me to bring up a couple of the half-cooked dumplings that bubble away my perpetual wonder-pot where the questions with no answers live. According...

Re: About "The Space Brothers"

Nate, I went off in a different direction in my search for a stronger link between the Space/Dulles Brothers and Bahnson. I found that the Dulles' were raised in a Calvinist protestant sect, and thought that might have been Bahnson's Moravian denomination, but apparently not. Moravaians seemed to be...
