Submission + - Scientist: Feds are blocking hydrogen fuel

Lucas123 writes: "A Purdue University engineer and National Medal of Technology winner says the federal government is blocking development of a new method of creating hydrogen fuel as a clean energy alternative to gasoline. The professor is claiming the government won't fund the research of a process already proven to work. '"Egos" at the U.S. Department of Energy, a key funding source for energy research, "are holding up the revolution,"' Professor Jerry Woodall said. The method uses an aluminum alloy to extract hydrogen from water — a process that he thinks could replace gasoline as well as its pollutants and emissions tied to global warming. The hydrogen is generated on demand, so you only produce as much as you need when you need it.'"

Submission + - French Space Agency to Post UFO Database Online

An anonymous reader writes: According to an article at ZDNet, The French Space Agency, or Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), is planning to post a database of approximately 1,600 UFO incidents in late January / early February 2007.

From the headline:
"[the database]...consists of about 6,000 reports, many relating to the same incident, filed by the public and airline professionals. Their names would not be published to protect their privacy..."

Is this the start of major governments opening up about UFO's?
