Hey that was a great read.
I was a bit sceptical about plasma generators and all that stuff, but I will definately study a bit on it, and write a page about it for my website. The one I have on it now is about plasma stealth technology.

It makes sense though:

The experiment, at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, tests a ground-breaking idea developed by Russian researchers during the Cold War. They discovered that injecting a few ions into the flow around a high-speed craft can dramatically reduce the drag it experiences.

I think it will add another 'dimension' to the theory of 'cloaking devices'.

Everytime I read an article on 'plasma generators' and its concepts and applications, all that comes to mind is 'cloaking devices'......ya, ok.....I'm wigging out a lil here....don't mind me......sorry.....

I dont know about the plasma being used to absorb waves stuff will revolutionize stealth. Unless they combined it with visual stealth as well. You guys read the thread about the Japan made coat right? Almost transparent, to the point that you can see whats behind the person wearing it.
