By Robert Guffey

A enchanting mixture of Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, and Philip okay. Dick, Chameleo is a real account of what occurred in a seedy Southern California city whilst an enthusiastic and unrepentant heroin addict named Dion Fuller sheltered a U.S. Marine who’d stolen evening imaginative and prescient goggles and maybe a couple of most sensible mystery documents from a close-by army base.

Dion came upon himself arrested (under the ostensible auspices of The Patriot Act) for conspiring with overseas terrorists to smuggle most sensible mystery army gear out of Camp Pendleton. the truth that Dion had completely not anything to do with foreign terrorists, smuggling, best mystery army gear, or Camp Pendleton didn’t appear to hassle the army. He used to be published from penitentiary after a six-day-long Abu-Ghraib-style interrogation. for that reason, he believed himself less than excessive executive scrutiny — and, he suspected, the topic of surprising experimentation regarding “cloaking”— electro-optical camouflage so severe it renders observers essentially invisible from a distance of a few meters — by means of the dept of place of birth defense. Hallucination? maybe — other than Robert Guffey, an English instructor and Dion’s buddy, tracked down and interviewed one of many scientists at the back of the undertaking codenamed “Chameleo,” experimental expertise which looks to were stolen via the U.S. division of security and deployed on American soil. extra surprising nonetheless, Guffey stumbled on that the DoD has been experimenting with its latest applied sciences on a couple of American citizens.

A condensed model of this tale was once the canopy characteristic of Fortean instances journal (September 2013).

Jedes Atom (Ion oder Molekül) hat bestimmte Termwerte, die im allgemeinen in mehrere Serien eingereiht werden können. l Für die Atome (Ionen, Moleküle) sind also nicht so sehr die Spektrallinien, als vielmehr die spektroskopischen Termwerte charakteristisch. Eine der wichtigsten Aufgaben der Atomstrukturforschung ist die Klärung der physikalischen Bedeutung der Terme, was die Quantentheorie ermöglicht hat.

Man kann berechnen, daß es - wenn im Sinne der Wellentheorie die Lichtenergie kontinuierlich im Raum verteilt wäre - bei Einwirkung von Lichtstrahlen kleiner Intensität verhältnismäßig lange dauern würde, bis ein Elektron soviel Energie angesammelt hätte, mit welcher es erfahrungsgemäß das Metall verläßt. In Wirklichkeit hingegen treten die Photoelektronen sofort nach der Belichtung aus, was nur dadurch erklärbar ist, daß in Lichtstrahlen kleiner Intensität Photonen gleicher Energie, aber in einer kleineren Anzahl anwesend sind als in Lichtstrahlen hoher Intensität gleiche Frequenz vorausgesetzt.
