    GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Flying saucers may soon be more fact than mere science fiction. University of Florida mechanical and aerospace engineering associate professor Subrata Roy has submitted a patent application for a circular, spinning aircraft design reminiscent of the spaceships seen in countless Hollywood films. Roy, however, calls his design a “wingless electromagnetic air vehicle,” or WEAV. The proposed prototype is small – the aircraft will measure less than six inches across – and will be efficient enough to be powered by on-board batteries. Roy said the design can be scaled up and theoretically should work in a much larger...

He and his 12-year-old son, Greg, were looking for deer tracks on some family property near Indianola recently when the older Romine spotted something a little unusual in the ground. "I said 'look at that, a piece of rusted metal'," he recalled. "Greg said, 'Naw, that's just an old tree branch,' but I said 'No it's not.' "Sure enough, when we pulled it up, it was metal."
