Ball Lightning is one of the most mysterious phenomenons known to mankind. There have been over 10,000 cases reported in history and nearly 5% of American’s have said they have witnessed it. Until recently its source and composition have remained unknown but if scientists are successful it could be powering large scale reactors and could go a long way to solving America’s energy needs.
Recent breakthroughs have been occurring at laboratories around the World including research being done in the joint study group at the Max-Planck-Institute and Berlin’s Humboldt University. Scientists have generated ball-lightning-like plasma clouds with luminous circular spirals at diameters of 10 to 20 centimeters, in these spirals a plasmoid of ionized gas or “quantum nucleus” have been observed, leaving scientists stunned at the potential energy gain given the relative size of the experiment.
Dr. Kiril Chukanov a Russian scientists who has a PhD in thermodynamics has been studying the phenomenon for over 15 years. In his experiments he has described what he thinks is a new form of energy, a Quantum Energy for which he has been granted a US Patent. Dr. Chukanov believes the quantum energy represents a Giant Macro Atom composed of a two-dimensional quantum nucleus and a three-dimensional electronic shelf cloud. The quantum macro-object (ball lightning) possesses unusual electrical features and energy possibilities. According to quantum principle, the electrons in the electron shelf surrounding the ball lightning nucleus possess energy at quantum levels. The energy released has been enormous, the next step is to replicate these experiments in other laboratories and to find the best way of capturing and store this new form of energy.
