What Happened to Ning Li and Her Anti-Gravity Research?

I remember reading this article in Popular Mechanics when it came out in 1999. Not long after, I ran into Dr. Campbell. (the guy on the left with his NASA badge tucked in his pocket) and asked him about the project. He seemed to be optimistic about its chances at success.
That was over a decade ago. Now, the head scientist, Dr. Ning Li, (lady in the middle) has apparently disappeared a few years ago, and Larry Smalley (the guy on the right), the former chairman of the University of Alabama at Huntsville physics department has apparently died.
This project they were working on was nothing less than Earth shattering. This device, if the claims of the scientists are to be believed, could possibly have led to sci-fi types of things like force fields, tractor beams and artificial gravity.
What happened? Where did the research go? What happened to Ning Li? 
Google searching brings up tin foil hat type of conspiracies among other accusations that this is nothing but "Fringe Science" or "Pseudo Science",
Possibly is, but these are verifiable and respectable scientists. NASA did research. Ning Li did start a company up called AC Gravity and obtained a grant from the DOD to pursue research.
I would like to know what happened... did it turn out to be nothing? Did Ning Li run off with the grant money? Apparently she is from a very wealthy family of respectable scientists, so I don't readily buy that theory.

Anyone else familiar with this? This happened right here in Huntsville Alabama.

At this Zoominfo link, I found this:
May, 2003: Dr. Ning Li sends a private email to colleagues claiming to have experimentally verified a large-scale AC-Gravity measuring "11-kilowatts of output effect", and abruptly disappears from public view. (this is her last known public communication)

While utilizing my cyber search Kung Fu, I was able to find this document which is apparently an email between Timothy Ventura and Eugene Podkletnov.

Dear Tim,

All I can tell you is that Ning is all right, she is working for DOD and

therefore is not permitted to discuss her work openly. I do not know her

working email address, she phoned me couple of times this year and we
some brief exchange of opinions on superconductors and their structure.
I know that her parents, brother and husband all live in the USA, they
doctors and rather rich.
Ning still has an apartment in Huntsville but I do not know where her
lab is
situated now.
DOD is a serious organisation and I frankly have no idea how to get the
address. Still, Ning Li was present at the conference on gravity waves
organised by MITRE, they should have her address.

The idea of gravity shielding seems to attract people from China, a
theoretical article was published by Ning Wu, as discussed at Greenglow.

Later, if you want this topic at your site, we can talk on the phone or
exchange information by email when it is convenient.

Best wishes             Eugene

So, if that email is for real, she has been seen as of 2004.
This may be nothing, but shit like this is what makes people go out and buy rolls of tin foil for uses ofher than cooking.

Darwin Award Recipient

My day job requires me to do this very same type of work for 4 of the 8 hours of the work day.
I can not imagine how anyone can be this stupid.
The operator pulls out a cigarette lighter from his pocket for illumination of the inside of the tank, evidently to see how much fuel is inside.
I hope you don't try this at home, but if you do... make sure it is on video so we all can laugh at your dumbass.

2012 Can Go Fuck Itself

2012 was a fucked up year.
We witnessed the most brain dead presidential campaign ever. The Republican primary was a clown show of idiocy that was of jaw dropping magnitude. The winner of that goat fucking was Mitt Romney. A Thurston Howell clone, he managed to put a face on how out of touch the uber rich are with normal people.
A child molester managed to forever tarnish a great college football legacy and coach at Penn State.
A horrible super storm named Sandy devastated the east coast.
We found out that the Mayans can't predict the end of the world any better than the fucking Christians can.
Evidently, Lance Armstrong turned out to be a goddam doping cheater after all.
Despite America putting a self contained robotic mobile laboratory on Mars utilizing a never before seen rocket powered hover crane on its last leg of the interplanetary journey, our country is still riddled with anti science imbeciles. Many of which sit in congress. And on the science and technology committee no less.
There was a horrible shooting at an elementary school. A tragedy which sent gun sales and stocks soaring.
Before that, we had an idiot seeking his 15 minutes by shooting a bunch of people at a goddam premier of a fucking Batman movie.
Before that, a kid was killed by a self appointed neighborhood watch commander.
Yeah. 2012 was a fucked up year. Even the good stuff got overshadowed.
Fuck you 2012. Rot in Hell, you bitch.
