I think the whole mercury thing came from the old Indian Vedic texts about Vimanas. Way to be real creative...
Allegedly an experiment carried out by Third Reich scientists working for the SS in a German facility known as Der Riese (“The Giant”) near the Wenceslaus mine and close to the Czech border, Die Glocke is described as being a device “made out of a hard, heavy metal” approximately nine feet wide and 12 to 15 feet high, having a shape similar to that of a large bell.
According to Cook, this device ostensibly contained two counter-rotating cylinders which would be “filled with a mercury-like substance, violet in color”.
