CLOUD RISING FROM THE SEA
this highly anomalous cloud was due to a cold explosion -- a test of
a Soviet scalar EM howitzer in the pulsed endothermic mode.
the weapon’s targeted interference zone, EM energy (heat) was rapidly withdrawn
when the biased endothermic extraction occurred. Above the ocean an intense low
pressure zone was created. Water from the ocean was sucked up, as if by a giant
vacuum cleaner. The water was violently broken into droplets, forming a dense
cloud, with a strong upward momentum.
surrounding higher pressure air rushed into the low pressure zone, pushing the
rising dense cloud of water vapor upward as its upward momentum continued.
Mixing caused rapid expansion of the rising cloud, causing its density to thin measurably
as it rose and expanded. An effect very similar to the formation of
a strong thunderhead resulted, except much faster.
mixing cloud also resembled the mushroom cloud from a giant nuclear explosion,
just as an emerging thunderhead does.
But no outward blast wave resulted as does from a nuclear explosion. Also, no visible flash occurred, probably as a result of deliberate design by the Russians.
Thus a beautiful "stimulus" and test was conducted: quite a few airliners were "pinged," providing a high-level stimulus to competent observers. The news was sure to be reported by them to several nations. The press was sure to pick up the story. This was a high order stimulus to see whether the U.S., Japan, or other potential adversaries of the Soviet Union recognized the testing of a cold explosion weapon.
By our reaction, we assured them (with high confidence) that we still knew nothing of scalar EM interferometry or cold explosions.
