If you have any doubts about me being a sci-fi geek, search this blog for Star Trek. I’ve posted one other TR-3B video already, but I still have 3 more to go. These aren’t short sensationalist videos, by the way, but videos that get into the science and practicality of the technology we might already have.

TR-3B Plasma Torus Anti-Gravity Centrifuge Engine – (2013) 4 stars
Run time: 9 minutes. The plasma was colored violet and glowed while being tested. Here is the configuration for the full anti-gravity operation. Three solenoids were placed under the ring of plasma. The solenoids allow the ring to magnetically levitate. The super-conducting ceramic, torus-shaped, that surrounds the plasma is made of yttrium-barium-copper oxide. This ceramic gets the plasma to spin, as stated previously, at 5,000 RPM. The absence of friction will keep increasing the speed of revolution. At the point where the plasma reached relativistic speeds, anti-gravity effects will start to form. The entire assembly is enveloped and cooled by liquid nitrogen. Again, this allows a significant loss of weight for objects within the ‘shielding effect’ or force field.
This source repeats scientist Edgar Fouche’s calculations for the TR-3B’s mechanism as being super-cooled to 150 Kelvin, rotated to 60,000 RPM and pressured at 250,000 Atmospheres. The plasma is described as dense and viscous. According to a witness, spilled plasma changed color from green to purple. Mercury-thallium-barium-calcium-copper oxide can be used at 138 Kelvin, and possibly up to 164 Kelvin under high pressure. This mixture can be used as an anti-freeze to prevent the mercury from freezing into solid metal. Absolute Zero is zero Kelvin. 150 K is the required temperature for the mercury-based plasma. Mercury-thallium freezes at 212 K, and mercury by itself freezes at 234 K. All motion stops at Absolute Zero. Deep space is at 3 K. Air liquefies at around 100 K. Water freezes at 300 K. Liquid nitrogen boils at 77 K. Anything below 77 K must be done in a cryogenics lab.
If you want to try this at home, a large, aluminum doughnut can be used to hold the plasma. This has to be perfectly round and smooth on the inside. A second choice could be quasi-crystals with nano-refrigeration units lining the inside of the doughnut. The outside would be reinforced to counter the massive centrifugal forces. The magnetic drive system would consist of magnetic coils with regular, spaced out operation. This assembly is placed into liquid nitrogen with a scale to be placed on objects to see if the objects will weigh less. In this experiment, a small device will not yield significant results. Bigger is better. The propulsion would be noiseless and emission-less.
