    Maybe a reason why it wasn't seen in production, due to lack of suitable experts from the first test..... A 'hold my beer and watch this moment...

    For a more modern version, Google Gerald vincent Bull and Project Babylon plus project harp space gun. I spent ages researching this a few years back. Very interesting.
