      has anyone read books by william lyne? he writes books on ufos and says tesla invented to tesla coil for the electropulsive ship(ufo).he says the if a telsa coil is tunned to 1/4 wave and is ungrounded it will emit negative discharges at the top (peak negative) and the bottom of the coil being peak positive.is this correct?

      Electron emission is way easier, once breakdown is achieved, because the electrons are so mobile. The damage, however, is where the (mostly positive) ions slam

        Electron emission is way easier, once breakdown is achieved, because the electrons are so mobile. The damage, however, is where the (mostly positive) ions slam into the emitting surface. The coil is symmetric. Now as I recall, a half wave produces two voltage nodes, and they will look exactly alike, except out of phase with each other, if they are both loaded the same. A quarter wave produces a current maximum at one end, and a voltage maximum at the other. Sure wouldn't expect that to emit streamers and the like from the current node. And the top emissions are not negative. They are a plasma in air, consisting of very hot electrons, much colder mostly positive ions, and a lot of neutral molecules. The Tesla potential is AC, and I expect many of the streamer discharges will conduct current in both directions over a substantial number of cycles. A van de Graff generator does produce DC with one side positive and the other negative. Usually one side is grounded to make it easier to handle but it could be made as a split floating unit, one side positive and one negative. .

        It would seem that William Lyne must have escaped from a funny farm!!!!! Ed has anyone read books by william lyne? he writes books on ufos and says tesla
