SciXFriday - Time Travel, Solar Eclipse Astrology, Feisty Rooster and Stealth Shoes

"When I first became involved in the project, I suggested that Isaac Asimov, who was a good friend of mine, would be an appropriate person to participate. He expressed his willingness and came to a few meetings. He eventually decided not to continue, because he did not want to have access to any secret classified information; it would limit his freedom of expression." - Arthur Obermayer, referencing a contract with GLIPAR (Guide Line Identification Program for Antimissile Research)

"My feeling is that as far as creativity is concerned, isolation is required." Asimov, Essay on New Ideas. More information at Asimov online. Of dreaming Robots, Science Fiction and Philosophy: From Time Travel to Super Intelligence, Susan Schneider

"Interview with a Time Traveler" by Ashley Cooper successfully launched on Kickstarter in 2013. Great to see the intro video and then see how the project turned out.

While we're on the Time Travel theme, the story of Al Bielek remains a head scratcher. He's known for being associated with the Philadelphia Experiment and the Montauk project.  
Did the Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk Project really happen? Here are the comments from Michael Houtzager, Producer and Interviewer of the Al Bielek Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk CD set. As Michael says, do your own homework and decide what you will. The story remains fascinating.
