He said heavier than air flying machines were not possible. A difference. He knew good and well that birds flew. So he was not at all arguing that physics prevented flight, it was just his knowledge of mechanics that prevented him from imagining that a machine could.

You used transparent without any modifiers whatsoever, yet the article talks about anything but. Transparent means we - as in you and I - can see through it *all the time*. Kinda like glass, you lknow?. In the experiment they use that word to mean "nearly invisible to extreme ultraviolet radiation". Emphasis mine. So, not even actually transparent.

Going further, they used the FLASH laser (meaning a very expensive process) and produced "a spot with a diameter less than a twentieth of the width of a human hair" which retained your 'invisible' state "an extremely brief period - an estimated 40 femtoseconds". More of that there emphasis.

If that's the type of logic you use and respect, it's no wonder at all you believe cold fusion has happened.

The name still fits. Turbo.
