VEGA - Even more extraordinary traces

Could they explain extraordinary evidence?

Live stream 19:30 CET 28 March 2021

Review of further experiment recordings by volunteer DAVE, including some at higher frame rates and in some cases 2 cameras. Combined with new techniques I have developed to merge sequence frames, nearly complete tracks have been recorded revealing in breathtaking detail various forms of traces that do not behave like standard kinetic trajectories.

Some observations are similar to those by Ken Shoulders in 1983 and with data already demonstrated by many authors, including myself, the present imagery could provide explanations for the form of, so called, Strange Radiation tracks.

Crack formation

Some of the largest and most interesting features produced in VEGA experiments have been born on surface features or gaps between electrodes. In the image below which was also the title frame for the live discussion above, it appears that the oscillating emission is coming from the small gap between two brass plates that form part of the cathode.

I appears as if the track is only ‘lit’ when it is in the excited gas area and goes dark when it leaves, is it reflecting or re-emitting the light it is exposed to? Regardless, this recorded behaviour implies that it is not producing its own light. Moreover, despite being emitted from the gap between two plates on the cathode, it does not fly into the anode which is in the top left of the frame. The rest of the reactor enclosure is at cathode potential, together, this may suggest that whatever the track is made from, it is neutral.

In the above scanning electron microscope image from “EVO PROPULSION BASIS” by Ken Shoulders, we can see domes made in an aluminium coating by momentum transfer between EVOs that have travelled first through a thickness of Silicon Carbide. The holes are where the EVO and the entrained atoms burst through. Unnoticed by Ken Shoulders (AFAIK) is a classic “Strange Radiation” track, the form of which could be created by a structure moving in a similar fashion to that seen in the VEGA experiment above.

Twisted filaments

In the below image, there are two emissions of similar type, diameter and velocity recorded on two cameras simultaneously, however, trace one is rotating at a higher rate than trace two. By simulating a further increase in rotation, the 3D path is a very good match for the 2D constrained SR track first presented in 2010 by Claude Daviau et. al.

The above image (a video of which can be viewed here) shows in three dimensions and time what a ‘Strange Radiation’ result constrained to a two dimensional witness material could be formed by, such as that presented at the EADS colloquium in 2010 by Claude Daviau, Didier Priem and Guillaume Racineux, observed in Nante when replicating the exploding Titanium approach of Leonid Urutskoev.

In the video below (which you can view on youtube full frame), you can first see a sequence at 60fps and then at 30x slower (2fps). At the slower speed it appears that many of the traces are interacting with each other. You can download original here.
