    The U-2

    Lockheed's connection with the CIA goes a way back Clarence "Kelly" Johnson Johnson designed the U-2 for the CIA in 1955. Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was instrumental in deciding the Groom Lake should be Area 51. He became an legendary figure in the Aviation industry, for his designs and his amazing organizational ability.

    From
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area_51

    The Groom Lake test facility was established by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for Project Aquatone, the development of the Lockheed U-2 strategic reconnaissance aircraft in April 1955.

    As part of the project, the director, Richard M. Bissell, Jr., understood that, given the extreme secrecy enveloping the project, the flight test and pilot training programs could not be conducted at Edwards Air Force Base or Lockheed's Palmdale facility. A search for a suitable testing site for the U-2 was conducted under the same extreme security as the rest of the project.
    He notified Lockheed, who sent an inspection team out to Groom Lake. According to Lockheed's U-2 designer Kelly Johnson

    ... We flew over it and within thirty seconds, you knew that was the place ... it was right by a dry lake. Man alive, we looked at that lake, and we all looked at each other. It was another Edwards, so we wheeled around, landed on that lake, taxied up to one end of it. It was a perfect natural landing field ... as smooth as a billiard table without anything being done to it". Johnson used a compass to lay out the direction of the first runway. The place was called "Groom Lake".


    This is a great article on the man 'Head Skunk'

    And Disclosure Project witness Don Phillips claimed to have worked with Kelly at U-2 and the SR-71 Blackbird. He testified that we not only have extraterrestrial devices, but have also achieved tremendous technological advances from their study.
    When Steven Greer asked him: Do you know if Kelly Johnson knew of the UFO and ET issue at all?
    DP: Oh Yeah. I would say he did. But he was focused on developing a job. There were five people in the world of his caliber.

    The U-2 was flight tested at Groom Lake.

    Something else Lockheed Martin developed for the CIA the RQ 170 Sentinel
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockhee...Q-170_Sentinel

    One of these was unfortunately taken down by the Iranians
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2...Q-170_incident

    Iranian Mehran Tavakoli Keshe alleges that anti gravity technology he pioneered helped down the craft.
    http://www.wired.com/2012/01/iran-ufo-drone/
    Keshe himself suggests that Iran’s advanced space program has yielded flying saucers and used them to down the drone. “The Iran spaceship program has the capability of jamming and blocking any incoming radar,” he writes, “as we have explained month ago on this forum, and now we see the practical use of the technology.”

    Iran has now built a copy...



    Iranians have had UFOs over nuclear plants and have claimed that they may be US drones that have capabilities far in advance to the RQ-170, maybe they are not US at all. UFOs are well known for taking an interest in nuclear sites.
    http://theaviationist.com/2013/11/10/f-14-vs-ufo/
    In fact Combat Aircraft October 2013 reported...
    'According to Iranian sources, the CIA 's intelligence drones displayed astonishing flight characteristics, including an ability to fly outside the atmosphere, attain a maximum cruise speed of Mach 10, and a minimum speed of zero, with the ability to hover over the target.'

    The Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 or HTV2 - Lockheed are leading the way at the moment in hypersonic flight.

    http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/pro...con-htv-2.html

    From Lockheed site...

    The Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 (HTV-2) is a multiyear research and development effort to increase the technical knowledge base and advance critical technologies to make long-duration hypersonic flight a reality.

    Falcon HTV-2 is an unmanned, rocket-launched, maneuverable aircraft that glides through the Earth’s atmosphere at incredibly fast speeds—Mach 20 (approximately 13,000 miles per hour). At HTV-2 speeds, flight time between New York City and Los Angeles would be less than 12 minutes. The HTV-2 vehicle is a “data truck” with numerous sensors that collect data in an uncertain operating envelope.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperso...logy_Vehicle_2

    Copied from page...

    The HTV-2's first flight was launched on 22 April 2010.[5] The HTV-2 glider was to fly 4,800 miles (7,700 km) across the Pacific to Kwajalein at Mach 20.[6] The HTV-2 was boosted by a Minotaur IV Lite rocket launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. The flight plan called for the craft to separate from the launch vehicle, level out, and glide above the Pacific at Mach 20.[1][3] Contact had been lost with the vehicle nine minutes into the 30-minute mission.[3][7][8] In mid-November DARPA stated that the first test flight had ended when the computer autopilot had "commanded flight termination" after it had begun to roll violently.[9]

    A second flight was initially scheduled to be launched on August 10, 2011, but bad weather forced a delay.[10] The flight was launched the following day, on 11 August 2011. The unmanned Falcon HTV-2 successfully separated from the booster and entered the mission's glide phase, but again lost contact with control about nine minutes into its planned 30-minute Mach 20 glide flight. Initial reports indicated it purposely impacted the Pacific Ocean along its planned flight path as a safety precaution

    Quantum computing
    Lockheed have made the largest ever programmable quantum information processor - the D-Wave Two

    http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/new...3/quantum.html

    More on their site...

    A joint effort of Lockheed Martin Corporation and the University of Southern California, the Quantum Computation Center (QCC) first began exploring the power of quantum computing with the D-Wave One, the world's first quantum computer designed by the company, D-Wave Systems, Inc.

    The QCC recently upgraded to the D-Wave Two, a more accurate machine than the D-Wave One, designed with 512 qubits instead of 128. The D-Wave Two is the largest programmable quantum information processor built.

We may still be use natural gas to do our cooking, (Can't really stick your food in a fusion reactor to bake it) and I imagine that most houses that have gas stoves may likely also use gas for heating.

    Reading notes by Bob Lazzar, the clean burn reactor in the Sport Saucer at S4 in Area 51 uses thermal converters that can create energy (I guess electricity?) from the high heat during the fusion process of the triangular fuel plates, or Ununpentium. From what I read, the thermal converters are (inside?) the small reactor.

    Lockheed are also leaders in
    Carbon based technology. Graphene is being hailed as the next step in microchip technology. Carbon nanotubes are being cited in many different types of tech. They are one of the strongest materials known and carry electricity.
    Lockheed is heavily into carbon based technologies

    Nanotech
    http://www.lockheedmartin.co.uk/us/n...g-the-way.html

    Nanometer thick sheets of graphene to be used for water purification and other technologies

    Nanotubes
    http://www.lockheedmartin.co.uk/us/w...materials.html

    And don't forget Graphene is a topological insulator. These are incredibly rare materials which include tellurides (Mercury Cadium Telluride, Mercury Telluride and Bismuth Telluride) and it was tellurides, that Boyd Bushman claimed, were used to make the downed ET craft .

    This is from the Harry Cooper's Sharkhunter's newletter...
    The Australian defense ministry has awarded Lockheed Martin a AU$700 million contract to design, build and integrate a combat system for the Royal Australian Navy’s future submarines. Announcing the contract on January 25, Australian defense industry minister Christopher Pyne said the contract with Lockheed Martin Australia would create 200 new jobs, majority of which will be based in South Australia. He said; “This contract will cover work to 2022, including the design of the combat system and procurement activities to select subsystem and component suppliers. The future submarine program remains on time and on budget, further demonstrated by this milestone event.” Lockheed Martin Australia was selected as the future submarine combat system integrator in September 2016. A total of 12 Shortfin Barracuda submarines will be built for Australia by French shipbuilder Naval Group at a cost of AUD 50 billion. Construction is expected to start in 2022–23 once 85 per cent of the design work is completed.
