"It is possible that what we can observe in the resulting movement is the unknown interaction between that body and fields, such as for example a gravitational field, the nature of which has been little-studied."
..."It is an environmentally clean source of propulsion and in the future could be used for air and surface transport," Menshikov said.

This has to be the most nonsensical article used for an ATSNN story yet.

Basically take a circle tube type medium (think of like a inner tube to a bicycle) now rotate it in a counter clock wise rotation while at the same time rotating the outer tube "rubber" in a clock wise rotation so that the inner ring side of the tube material turns into the center. You can observer this type of motion by taking a rubber band or string that is tied into a loop and twisting the rubber band between your thumb and finger on both hands, the inner sides all around turn into the center this action is kind of like the friction pitching machines for tennis balls baseballs etc, but think of the same in the a 360 degrees, now rotate the entire assembly in a counter clockwise direction. If the inner portion of the tube is filled with a (magnetic, ionizied ??? media) this rotational and (swirling ???) motion will create a strange tornado like (energy field???? Ionic wave, Ion Drive ???).. But the force vector is actually the opposite of what you would think it to be. Just like a tornado "lifts" things into the air, to use this as a means of propulsion would mean that the tornado is in the front (like an inlet to a jet engine) and the "thrust is actually being generated at the top or "wide mouth" of the tornado. The "engine" is actually pulling the device through thin air, instead of pushing it, since it is creating essentially a vaccum of (gravitational, ionic ?? magnetic ???) energy in front of it, thus making the device appear or actually defiy the rules of gravition as the "tornado" like effect is drawing the "energy" from "gravity" itself....
I can see it in my head, I just don't know what the media is inside the tube..
