Kevin Knuth on UFOs, Nimitz / Tic Tac video, and a new kind of Theory of Everything
Theories of Everything with Curt Jaimungal
Premiered Apr 13, 2021
Kevin Knuth is a Professor of physics at the University of Albany, a former NASA scientist, and the Editor-In-Chief of the Entropy journal. He has a unique Theory of Everything called Influence Theory. Patreon for conversations on Theories of Everything, Consciousness, Free Will, and God: patreon.com/curtjaimungal

Superb! Dig it!
This is SO much more than UFOs! It’s mostly intense, in-depth physics, quantum physics, astronomy and yes, even more.
Fascinating. I have learned an amazing number of things. And I’m only halfway through it!*
And it certainly doesn’t hurt that Professor Knuth is just so darn amiable.
This is delightful.
Oh, regarding the Tic Tac vehicle, it went from 28,000 feet to 0 in 0.78 seconds. That’s 35,000 mph or Mach 60 at 5,700 G. Yeah.
*-With people of this caliber, I find it’s safe to do it this way, although I usually don’t.
