"A professor from chair of quantum and optical electronics of the Ulyanovsk State University in western Russia has patented a method of making things invisible, Interfax news agency reported.

The so-called invisibility cloak, created by Oleg Gadomsky, is called “The method of conversion of optical radiation” in the patent.

Gadomsky had been long experimenting on nanoparticles of gold. Thus, he invented a sub-micron stratum of microscopical colloid golden particles that makes an object placed behind it invisible for an observer.

“Only static objects can be made invisible for the time present, as during motion a radiation frequency changes. But soon it will be possible to create a cap of darkness and a magic cloak of Harry Potter, the scientist believes."

Time Can be Turned Back
"Eight years ago, American and British scientists who conducted investigations in Antarctica made a sensational discovery. US physicist Mariann McLein told the researchers noticed some spinning gray fog in the sky over the pole on January 27 which they believed to be just ordinary sandstorm. However, the gray fog did not change the form and did not move in the course of time. The researchers decided to investigate the phenomenon and launched a weather balloon with equipment capable to register the wind speed, the temperature and the air moisture. But the weather balloon soared upwards and immediately disappeared.

In a little while, the researchers brought the weather balloon back to the ground with the help of a rope attached to it before. They were extremely surprised to see that a chronometer set in the weather balloon displayed the date of January 27, 1965, the same day 30 years ago. The experiment was repeated several times after the researchers found out the equipment was in good repair. But each time the watch was back it displayed the past time. The phenomenon was called "the time gate" and was reported to the White House."

"The last record made in the framework of the experiment and kept at the Institute archives says: "We are dying but keep on conducting the experiment. It is very dark here; we see all objects become double, our hands and legs are transparent, we can see veins and bones through the skin. The oxygen supply will be enough for 43 hours, the life support system is seriously damaged. Our best regards to the families and friends!" Then the transmission suddenly stopped."

>>3 "According to one of the versions of the tragedy, the module with three experimenters collided with a large object, probably an asteroid" implies there were more versions.
But I can't find anything else on the web. All web pages point to this 2004 Pravda article.

Hello, we're talking about Pravda FFS! Its journalists are as reliable as Jim Carrey's character in Liar, Liar.

And Mosnews isn't that much of an exception...

From "PRAVDA", here are some headlines:

"Condoleezza Rice's anti-Russian stance based on sexual problems"

"Condoleezza Rice wants Russia to obey her every single word"

"Condoleezza Rice: Mind your own business"

"The voice of hypocrisy" (Condoleezza Rice is either lying through her teeth or else she is a barefaced hypocrite)

"The United States of Torture"

"Condoleezza Rice tries to win Central Asia's sympathies for USA's purposes"

"Condoleezza Rice dumps Uzbekistan"

"The President and the Secretary" (Is America doomed to live in the shadow of most paranoid opinions?)

"Condoleezza Rice – Questions and Answers" (What is it with the US Secretaries of State?)

Go Condi...

>Hello, we're talking about Pravda FFS!

While I agree with the sentiment, the headlines you quote are rather detrimental to your argument. :)

Due to it's fleeting nature, which makes it spontaneously combust when coming in cotnact with THE INTERNET, sarcasm has been rarely observed in the wild of /science.
Due to its inherent tendency to violently explode to face, it has become so rare even, that some hypothetize, it might not actually exist and banish it to the realm of myths, such as Nessie, or the gods of ancient egypt.

>>8 is Albright who escaped from the confinements of /politics
