The test was done at Argonne national laboratory (new mexico?), they have since then done some other amazing experiments.
The speed, i don't know, as i understend it, it's not a very big facility, couldn't have been more than 1 or 2 MeV.
This only works if the spins are exactly opposite, a few degrees of & they do interact.
At the time i just noted it as an interesting snippet of information, but going back to what i have read several times about rotation being the key to a lot of things, can rotation affect charge?.Apparently electrons will spin faster in a strong magnetic field, it makes them move into a circular path, which is useful for things like microwave production.You can do the same with protons, only it requires more energy because they are so much bigger than an electron, so it's more mass to get moving.
OK so if an electron is a kind of string, it could well explain why it behaves as a 'cloud' & not a solid object, and could explain why it reacts the way it does in a magnetic field (that other unexplained phenomenon).
Maybe there is something to string theory after all, but don't ask me, ask someone who knows
I still have the preference for ZPE/aether theory, since it provides more answers than questions.
I would just like to add that i am shocked by the (lack of) knoweledge from many engineers, electricians etc, who's basic physics appears to have stopped at high school, they just don't want to know!
And i know why, it's because the schools that teach them, teach them to look no further.
Jaques Fresco phrased it best; "if you make the best ever whatsit, it's only the best that can be made TODAY, Tomorrow someone else will make a smaller, faster whatsit, science & society is always changing".
He also said that to try to alter or stop that change will give serious problems, just look around you
Thankfully there are so many sharp minds here on ATS, people who do look further, together we can do so much, make the smallest, fastest whatsit. it's great to be here!
PS i don't know why thw MEG isn't on the market, i can tell you that while i never measured actual overunity, i did encounter 'negative resistance' so it's not debunked as yet, unlike Steorn
