Seperating myth from reality: Nazi secret tech development projects

The superstructure was heavily damage with large loss of life.

Yep, the British were so near (up to 3000 meters), that they wrecked Bismarck's superstructure with point-blank-fire.

This drawing should be 99% exact.

And what’s the point of all this?

The point is, that the old question if Bismarck was sunk or scuttled is answered since many years. Scuttled.

The British needed 14/15 hitting torpedoes to sink Scharnhorst in 1943. They would have needed 25+ hitting torpedoes to finish Bismarck.

Bismarck-class was solidity over fighting power. But outdated battleships in the 40s.

Here's the link to explain the Bell as simply a centrifuge for the bomb project:

This is probably the all-round best explanation of the Bell, anywhere.
I confess that even the 'dumbed down' scientific explanations in this are heavy going for me. The take-away is that yes, there was some super secret sh-t going on connected to the German A-Bomb project (this bell thing had the highest known war priority and secrecy classification in Nazi Germany, which by itself is notable), but there's not much to support flying saucer bases in Antarctica, time machines or Adolf kneading coconut oil onto Eva's hard-to-get-at bits by a pool in Buenos Aires.

It looks like “Die Glocke” story is still alive and well.

The above story goes out of its way to paint it all as pure fantasy. Fair enough and probably so. Yet, recent headlines about NASA and MIT scientists meeting to discuss anti-gravity progress can’t help but make a guy wonder about the whole endeavor (at least those of us who sometimes like to indulge our inner adolescent geeks.)

I wonder if the discovery of gravitational waves hasn’t reinvigorated the quest a little bit.

One more late addition: According to this, the US Military has been researching anti-gravity for seventy years.

In short, in reality the Nazis might NOT have experimented with anti-gravity; but rumors that they DID may have nudged others to take the leap.

Revell models are a wonderful, mostly unexamined, STORY of the past and the future (and our hopes and fears). I would to know more about their product development process and history!!!
