Jim Kettner, Editor, "Editorial," Space Energy Journal, vol 7, no 2, pg 1.


Kettner discusses the problems of receiving hundreds of pages of information with very few pages that meet his journal's desire for good experimental information. We can sympathize with Kettner, especially when he writes, "We receive letters from aliens (supposedly translated by people who communicate with them) on new energy solutions for planet earth." We also ignore these unsolicited papers. Kettner also declares that he receives many stories "about the suppression, ideas being bought up, exploded, or inventors disappearing." Kettner counters with the concept that he has met some free energy inventors who have used these stories to cover up the fact that they can't produce a product.

On the Matter of Energy

Ralph Hovnanian, "On the Matter of Energy," Space Energy Journal, vol 7, no 2, pp 2-4, 2 figs.


Hovnanian writes about gravity being a push rather than a pull. He is apparently unaware of the many others before him that have discovered the same idea. The latest published article was presented at the Third International Symposium on New Energy (Denver, Colorado, April 25-28, 1996) by A. Zielinski. A Holland scientist about 40 years ago came up with the same idea (I know because I presented the same concept while employed as a missile system engineer.) However, the idea has been best described by Harold Aspden and later in a long mathematical exercise by Harold E. Puthoff.

Following this paper, several pages are devoted to a review of data and correspondence relating to the gravity drop-test experiments.

On Plasmoid Phenomena

Edward Lewis, "Plasmoid Phenomena," and "Plasmoid Phenomena and Cold Fusion Phenomena," and "Gorgons, Tornadoes, and Plasmoid Phenomena," Space Energy Journal, vol 7, no 2, pp 16-26, 46 refs.


Lewis has been writing articles about plasmoid phenomena for some time. These three articles provide a good overview of Lewis' ideas. He does a good job of citing the literature.

Joseph Newman's Theory

Roger Hastings, "Joseph Newman's Theory," Space Energy Journal, vol 7, no 2, pp 28-34.


This article has some interesting data about the May 1985 demonstration of the Newman motor in Washington, D.C. The motor was operated at 60 and 120 rpm. The 55 miles of wire made a coil weighing 9,000 pounds, used a 700 pound magnet, and the device was operated using six-volt Ray-O-Vac lantern batteries connected in series. The article suggests that the motor charged the batteries. We look forward to the further development of the Neumann motor into a practical source of power.
