I've been boning up on Eugene Podkletnov's work and have come across two rather interesting audio files of Tim Ventura's interviews with EP.
http://www.pureenergysystems.com/news/2004/08/04/6900035EugenePodkletnov/ It seems to me that EP's work has all the hallmarks of the Hutchison-Shoulders phenomena such as high voltage pulse, etc. In my view, the gravitational bit is an enormous red herring which only going to distract people from the recognition that this is a longitudinal nano- pulse at the magnetic scale of the Beta-atmosphere. One very interesting thing in the second of the interviews..... http://www.intalek.com/AV/Podkletnov-Breakthrough.wma was the statement (at 18min 50sec)..... =================================================== ".....and also we tried to measure the propagation speed of the impulse and we are very cautious about it because we don't want to frighten the scientific community and also we want to be absolutely sure that the results...[unintelligible]...several tons of times but it seems that based on what we have now - and already we are working for a year and a half - that the speed of the impulse is much higher than the speed of light - and with the parameters that we have now with at present in meters (?) and with voltage of three and five million volts the speed is about 63 to 64c which means that the propagation speed of the impulse is close to 64 times the speed of light....." =================================================== I like the "we don't want to frighten the scientific community" bit. He'll do more than frighten them. He'll send them positively ballistic. 8-) All the more so being a chemist - Shades of P&F. I find EP's result entirely plausible. It fits in with that article I read aeons ago about a magnetic pulse exceeding c. In fact it seems to me that with electricity and magnetism we are dealing with two quite separate phases of the Beta-atmosphere - but since I am now talking about two phases it might be more appropriate to use the more general term, the Beta-aether. There is the low pressure electric phase and the high pressure magnetic phase. EM radiation is the interaction between the two phases (cf. the air and the sea). In other words it is the propagation of energy along the phase boundaries. The transverse nature of EM radiation now makes much more sense. Let's hope EP soon forgets about anti-gravity and refines his experimental data on faster than light transmission.
