Did anybody happen to see this episode of "Myth Busters" on the Discovery Channel that has aired a few times in the past week or so? The hosts explore a couple of "anti gravity" devices, among them a "lifter" based on the "Byefield-Brown" effect (their mispronunciation, not mine). Unfortunately, it was all a bit hard to follow, mixed as the story was among segments exploring the incendiary properties of Christmas tree lights.
The clip shown here excludes their actual experiments, which included placing a lifter in a vacuum and getting no lift. Thus they conclude the "lifter" phenomenon is attributable entirely to "thrust." But… is that really ALL there is to the lifers? Hector… if you’re listening… got anything to add?
