I mean, we spend billions of dollars on stuff like the space program and nuclear reactors, if this stuff was useful, it'd be used. Or someone would use the same principles to invent their own version of it that was different enough to get their own patent on it.

And if no one would take on the material at that 51% level, would he stubbornly be broke all his life and refuse to compromise on that 51% or lower it to levels which would make him a multi-millionaire if it were adopted?

Everything about this story is fishy.
lots of youtube demonstrations, here's one of them

The thing is ... the guy hasn't sold it at all, right? He's been sitting on this gold mine for 20 years yet stubbornly refused to sell it to anyone so he's sitting there broke all this time? Surely if this stuff did everything claimed, someone would come and say "ok, we'll give you a hundred million dollars for the license to this stuff", and the guy said "no thanks, I'll live the rest of my life broke stubbornly holding out for my 51%"?

And if it was that good, they could just give him the 51%, and make a ton of profit from the other 49%. I'm trying to find out more about this stuff but there isn't all that much about it on the interwebs.

Maybe some communist country gave him the 51%, or even more than that to have control of it and construct crazy aircrafts to destroy the US

Sweet. A sheet of this stuff should have shipped with my 480s to protect the wall behind my PC.

Hello
I am Bernie, I looked after Maurice Wards Youtube account and I am sorry to inform you that Maurice passed away a few months ago and as such I have disabled the comments.
To my mind Maurice was one of a kind, a British inventor and a most entertaining man who I will sadly miss.
Regards
Bernie
Left on his youtube account..

I wonder if he kept these secrets to himself so it wasn't used for anything related to warfare. The armies would probably be the first ones to want to scoop this product up. War would probably quickly ensue after.

Or maybe this is some Tesla conspiracy stuff where the governments stole all ze research!! *tinfoil hat*
