Iranian Scientist Invents 'Time Machine'

Iranian scientist Ali Razeghi has registered a time machine with the country’s Center for Strategic Inventions.

Razeghi, 27, cites algorithms as the source of the device’s ability to "predict five to eight years of the future life of any individual with 98 percent accuracy."

The invention, dubbed "The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine," produces printed reports that contain details about the future, according to "The Telegraph,"which cites an Iranian news agency report.

“My invention easily fits into the size of a personal computer case,” said Razeghi, “It will not take you into the future, it will bring the future to you.”

Razeghi is managing director of the Center for Strategic Inventions, where he has 179 other devices registered under his name. "I have been working on this project for the last 10 years," he said.

The "time machine" was presented not only as a tool for individuals but also as a resource for governments seeking to preempt major crises.

"Naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilize it," he is quoted as saying.

Friends and family have reportedly criticized Razeghi for "trying to play God" with the device he began working on at the tender age of 17.

But Razeghi is quick to fend off those who might want his powerful piece of technology. "The Americans are trying to make this invention by spending millions of dollars on it," he is quoted as saying. "The reason that we are not launching our prototype at this stage is that the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it [by the] millions overnight."

Despite Razeghi's confident claims, most Iran watchers will be treating his announcement with a certain amount of skepticism.

In February, bloggers quickly pointed out that a photo of Iran's new Qaher-313 stealth fighter jet flying over a mountain range was faked. The plane’s shadows and lighting suggested that it was photographed indoors and the background turned out to be a stock image of Iran’s Mt. Damavand. Other bloggers also noted that the design of the aircraft made aviation experts doubt whether it was even a real plane.

In 2012, Iran released a photo of Koker 1, which it unveiled as the world’s first drone capable of vertical takeoff and landing. Internet commentators promptly linked the device to a group of engineers from Chiba University in Japan, who had actually invented the drone in 2008.
That second bolded part made me lol. It's Iranian dictatorship meets Minority Report. You are hereby charged with the intent to be an infidel 4 years from now. GUILTY!

Love how he thinks the Chinese will steal it. Possibly for use in fortune cookies.

Fuck that: what's up with this Qaher-313 fighter they talk about towards the end?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qaher-313

I'm not going to pretend to be an engineer, but I read a shitload about fighters when I was younger and I thought I'd kept up. Is it just me, or does everything about this Qaher-313 plane scream "teenage doodle in the middle of a boring class" fantasy? Even with the oversized canard, it just looks like there isn't enough wing surface. It's too small, overall, to do the job it's supposed to do. It's barely bigger than those microjets, like this:


The intake/engine is too small, especially given the wing size. To have that small a wing, you need a LOT of thrust to push air really, really fast over the wing to get any lift.

And the Wiki article says (I'm assuming from the Iranian press release) that the plane has "extra stability" so it doesn't need a fly-by-wire system.

With a canard configuration? Does that mean it's a fixed canard? And with a "Y" tailplane that combines vertical and horizontal stabilizers??? And worth noting: stability in a fighter jet is a bad thing. A very, very bad thing. Modern fighters aren't unstable in flight because they had to make compromises: they're purposely unstable in flight to make them more dynamic. An FBW system is to make an unflyable plane flyable, so when you turn off a part of the stability management system your plane with snap around faster. Making a fighter more stable is stupid. Especially when it's not really possible with the configuration seen in the photos of the Qaher-313. A Y tailplane, with a canard, and a small wing surface area, flown by a conventional wire-and-pulley or even a hydraulic/hydrodynamic control system? What??????

It just doesn't make sense. I mean, not at all. If the Iranians had just stopped about 10% short of what they'd said, the Qaher might make some sense. Don't say it's has "extra stability", dumbass.

For fuck's sake, you retarded camel r@pers: a freshman engineering student could tear apart your statements. With some modifications, something like the Qaher could make a neat little interceptor, but then why put in the work to make it stealthy in the first place? It's a fucking interceptor. The mission difference between a self-defense interceptor and an air-superiority fighter makes stealth for an interceptor pointless.

Looks like the nazi rocket powered interceptor from 1944-45

Ack. I didn't include any photos of the Qaher-313.


Just Google Image Qaher-313 for more photos of the non-working "fighter".

I read the headline and saw the picture of the plane and thought we had a Time Chasers situation
