Vedic Aeronautics or Vaimanika Saastra
Bacon wrote magnificently about the modern sciences evolving from the old.
" Solomon saith " There is no new thing upon the earth" ! All novelty is but oblivion !
There is an abstruse astrologer that saith " Were it not for two constants, no human being would live"
1. The fixed stars ever maintain the like distance from one another and never come closer to one another nor move furthur asunder
2 . The diurnal motion perpetually keepeth time "
When Erich von Daniken wrote about the Chariots of the Gods being UFOs, nobody took him seriously. They were called Vimanas in the Indian Saastras. Now Western scholars like Stephen Knapp, Childress and Hoagland have confirmed his theories.
Modern sciences evolved from ancient sciences
We find that Sir Erasmus Darwin and Charles Darwin drew their inspiration from two Indian theories ( The Law of Metempsychosis and the Theory of Ten Incarnations). 600 years before Liebniz and Newton, Calculus existed in India. That is why we quoted Solomon that there are no new things upon the earth and new concepts are reproductions of the old.
The author Hoagland quotes Col Olcott
Vimanas - The Ancient
Indian Astronaut Connection
Highly advanced Ancient Indian Flying Machines, the Chariots Of The Gods
300 types of UFOs ( anti-gravity crafts ) Saubas , Vimanas are documented in
detail in the Shastras. Some are triple floors or even flying cities from
other Planets ~ Saubas
The Vaimdika-Shastra is a highly detailed description of Vimanas, and it is
given great credence in a number of books and articles. These include the
writings of Kanjilal, Nathan, and Childress. In particular, the Indian
ufologist Kanishk Nathan wrote that the Vaimdnika-Shastra is an ancient
Sanskrit text that "describes a technology that is not only far beyond the
science of the times but is even way beyond the possible conceptual and
scientific imagination of an ancient Indian, including concepts such as
solar energy and photography."
The ancient Indians themselves wrote entire flight manuals on the control of
various types of Vimanas, of which there were basically four: the Shakuna
Vimana, the Sundara Vimana, the Rukma Vimana and the Tripura Vimana.
"The ancient Hindus could navigate the air, and not only navigate it, but
fight battles in it like so many war-eagles combating for the domination of
the clouds. To be so perfect in aeronautics, they must have known all the
arts and sciences related to the science, including the strata and currents
of the atmosphere, the relative temperature, humidity, density and specific
gravity of the various gases..."

About David Hatcher Childress' book " The Vimana Aircraft of Ancient India and Atlantis", Therese Welsh writes
If you’re into alternative theories of history, eventually you’ll come across books by David Hatcher Childress. I admit I avoided them for some years, as they seemed too far out on the fringe even for me. But I could not resist this book about ancient flying machines when I found a mint-condition copy at a used book sale. Childress is not the first author to write about the “vimanas” mentioned in an ancient manuscript from India called the Mahabarata. Other authors have felt this puzzling source not only tells us about sophisticated flying ships, but also tells of nuclear wars raining terrible destruction on an apparently highly advanced civilization.
This particular Childress book is a hodge-podge of essays, pictures, and a complete translation of the “Vymaanika-Shaastra or Science of Aeronautics,” purportedly a part of the famous Mahabarata, and found in an Indian library in 1908. This version is translated from the Sanskrit by one G.R. Joyser. The illustrations in the book make it worthwhile, as they are gathered from many sources and give numerous renditions of what the vimanas (from the Rama Empire of India) and the vailxi (from Atlantis) looked like. Okay, so these are just drawings and may arise only out of someone’s imagination, but we cannot forget that much technology of today was predicted by novelists of yesterday.
Stephen Knapp writes
As the yugas continued, the purity of the people, along with their mystical abilities, decreased by 25% in each age. The age of Treta-yuga lasts 1,296,000 years. During that age, the minds of humanity became more dense, and the ability for understanding the higher spiritual principles of the Vedic path was also more difficult. Naturally, the ability to fly through the sky by one's own power was lost. After Treta-yuga, Dvapara-yuga lasts 864,000 years, and Kali-yuga lasts 432,000 years, of which 5,000 have now already passed. At the end of Kali-yuga, the age of Satya-yuga starts again and the yugas continue through another cycle. One thousand such cycles is one day of Brahma. Now that we are in Kali-yuga, almost all spiritual understanding disappears, and whatever mystical abilities that remain are almost insignificant.
