In the vacuum experiment carried out at NASA's Marshall Centre,
the rig used was a rotating armature having two "thrust
capacitor" pods, one each end of the armature see:


These "capacitor pods" have a _solid_ dielectric insulating
layer between the two electrode plates, in the rig on the
website it's a layer of polystyrene.

There's an interesting "UFO" linkage on the above page that's
not at first obvious. Jean shows a table of dielectric constants
for a few materials, some of which he's used in his experiments.
He's currently using polystyrene which has a dielectric constant
listed as 2.56, he also lists Barium Strontium Titanate which
has a constant of 13800, it can theoretically hold 5400 times
more charge per given mass than polystyrene. One wonders whether
a "capacitor pod" constructed using this dielectric would
perform significantly better than the ones so far tested!.

The UFO link??

Weren't those alleged UFO craft fragments Linda Moulton Howe had
analysed found to be constructed of layers of magnesium
separated by layers of a _Barium_ compound, in fact very much
like a multi layered _capacitor_. And further, didn't they too
exhibit reactive movement when given a electric charge.
