Hi Frank, I had not seen your Russian reference about the Potapov device. (which needs a bit of editing, probably due to poor translation) This brings ti mind one curious detail in the Griggs/Potapov results - as well as some Casimir force, magnetic motor, Maxwell's demon, and even a few LENR

A neglected paper and fringe theory, which may stand up to closer scrutiny, appeared last year from Romania. It addresses the Kervran effect and the Mills hydrino with a vortex model somewhat reminiscent of the recent "Berry" superconductor theory.

Well as this paper implies, the field of superconductivity is "heating up" these days ..literally The prior story which may be very important on this point - and in the relentless progress towards usable RTSC - room temperature superconductivity - itself came out just a few weeks back

Frank - Don't you love the way the brass likes to exert a bit of unnecessary control every story by ignoring the common designation (in wide use by the public - which is UFO) - and inserting their own name? Why invent "UAP" when UFO is equally unknown and ambiguous,  since it adds zero real

This chart could lead to an interesting experiment - see Fig 4 of the paper below, which relates to the desorption energy of K at a graphite surface. Imagine a few drops of water on a graphite plate -- H2O containing dissolved KCl -- and irradiated in an oven. Sparks may fly as water is split

The sparking phenomenon of KCl is partially explained by the "plasma grape" phenomenon, especially since grapes contain potassium and sodium. Here is a video of the grape effect - which goes part of the way to explain the more general case, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCrtk-pyP0I At
