Water Bridge – Collective Molecular Dynamics

January 3, 2013

Water bridge – surprising phenomenon formed by water exposed to high voltage. This effect represent “Collective Molecular Dynamics”,

“Voeikov: Could the dynamics of formation of the water bridge be also at work in the process of formation of living structures?”

When a high voltage is applied to pure water filling two beakers kept close to each other, a connection forms spontaneously, giving the impression of a floating water bridge. This phenomenon is of special interest, since it comprises a number of phenomena currently tackled in modern water science. The formation and the main properties of this floating water bridge are analyzed in the conceptual framework of quantum electrodynamics.

The Gnome Experiment

March 24, 2012

Gravity varies slightly, wherever you go. So can we measure this phenomenon with a set of Kern scales and our traveling assistant? Watch the film or explore the results so far.

Aim

If Earth was a perfect sphere of uniform density, then gravity would be consistent. But it’s not, which means gravity varies wherever you go. So can we chart those discrepancies using just a basic-range Kern scale?

Method

We’re shipping our Gnome Kit from scientist to scientist around the world. Join the experiment and you’ll receive:

1x Kern EWB 2.4 Scale
Pre-calibrated according to local gravity at Kern HQ, Balingen, Germany.

1x Kern Gnome
The perfect test-subject for two good reasons: Gnomes are already accustomed to traveling the world. They also originate from our homeland, Germany.

1x Lab gloves & 1 x Air duster
Important because dust or grease will reduce the accuracy of the results.
