Supermatter For Spaceships
By C.F. Krafft
For years UAO enthusiasts have collected, filed and printed accounts of UAO sightings, gleaning bits of information about astronomy, the possibility of life on other planets. Only recently, however, has anyone come up with a feasible solution to the mystery of the propulsion of the unconventional aerial objects.
Dr. Krafft, the author of this article , has been with the U.S. Patent Office since 1913, and among his scientific accomplishments has been the successful prediction of the existence of the antiproton, which he prognosticated in 1933, and which was discovered over 20 years later. In 1931 he predicted "supergravitation" (the force of attraction between protons at close range) , which was discovered experimentally by others in 1936.
Dr Krafft is vitally interested in the UAO mystery, but has concerned himself primarily with the method of propulsion utilized by the seemingly infallible discs. To our knowledge, he is one of the very few who have entered into this phase of the UAO mystery not only with enthusiasm, but with a tremendous background in scientific research. We feel sure our members will thoroughly appreciate the following article dealing with supermatter.

Under the prevailing nuclear theory of atomic structure, atoms can be joined to one another only through their peripheral negative electrons acting as chemical valence bonds . A direct connection between the nuclei of adjacent atoms would be impossible under the nuclear theory because the peripheral electrons would be in the way . The nuclear theory however involves many contradictions, and is being challenged by the vortex theory which is free from contradictions but has never been permitted to appear in the scientific magazines. The time has now arrived, however, when the public should demand that the ether vortex be given a hearing, because our national safety may depend on it. The vortex atom does permit direct core-to-core connections between adjacent atoms which may lead to the production of a new kind of matter, namely "suppermatter", which appears to be the material that makes flying saucers possible and the first country that solves the flying saucer problem will be in a good position to have the rest of the world at its mercy.
When nucleated atoms form positive ions, the positive charges are always at the centers of the atoms, whereas positively charged vortex atoms have their positive charges in the peripheries of the atoms. It should be therefore possible to connect vortex atoms to one another by direct core-to-core connections, without the use of valence bonds, if we make use of the force of "supergravitation" which was predicted by the writer in 1931 and was discovered experimentally in 1936 . The production of such supermatter would require low temperature, high pressure and a strong positive electric potential. Since these three conditions do not exist anywhere in nature, such material would have to be produced artificially, but since it would be obviously impossible under the nuclear theory, no attempt was ever made here on this Earth to produce it.
The diagram shows one proton at the origin 0, and another proton at a point some distance away. The classical law of the electrostatics (Coulomb's law) is represented by the dotted curve, while the solid curve shows the actual relation of forces to distance as determined experimentally, independently of any theory. Thus when two protons move sufficiently close together, the force of repulsion changes over to a force of attraction  (supergravitation) in the region of the lower area. The movable proton will be in equilibrium at points 1 and 2, but at 1 its equilibrium will be unstable. Although the diagram shows two isolated protons, the same relation of forces to distance would hold true when the protons are structural parts of atomic cores. For further information about vortex atom structures, the writer's book on "The Ether and its Vortices" should be consulted.
For use as a propellant, a supermatter made of an inert gaz such as argon or from nuclear nitrogen should be tried. If heated to a certain critical temperature, it should disintegrate into the same positive ions from which it was produced, and these could then serve to propellant for a rocket motor . The positive electricity thus liberated would soon charge the rocket motor and eventually the entire spaceship electrostatically, so as to be repelled from the liberated cloud of ions. The downwardly dished circular flange that usually surrounds a flying saucer was evidently designed for being repelled from such a cloud of ions.
A continuous atomic fabric such as supermatter should also be effective to shield gravitational and inertial forces , but for this purpose it should be made from a monovalent metal such as copper or silver which is not easily melted. The polyvalent metals would not be suitable for this purpose because of the multiplicity of valence bonds would prevent the atoms from being brought sufficiently close together for direct core-to-core connections. According to the ether vortex theory, gravitational and inertial forces depend in some manner on pulsations sent out by the protons, and although these pulsation can pass freely through valence bonds, they would not be able to get through a continuous atomic core network such as supermatter. Upon encountering such a network, they would give up their energy to it and heat it up, sometimes to incandescence, as evidenced by the frequently observed luminosity of flying saucers. It represents a partial conversion of mass into energy. Underneath such a supermatter coating there is probably a layer of glass whool to serve as heat insulation for keeping the inside of the spaceship cool.
BOOMS IN THE 1920's
So these loud upper-atmosphere concussions are sonic booms from planes, eh? We quote from a member's recent account of what he experienced in Europe, Greece and the mid 1920s: "There were several occasions for a few days at intervals when sonic booms of unknown origin were heard in the town. They resembled the peal of a hollow echo of large metallic masses crashing against one another. The literates of the town sought to explain the sounds as due to subterranean activity, for that particular region happens to be located in a seismic zone, too. No quakes accompanied or followed the sounds, however. Back in the 1920s there were no such things as supersonic aircraft to blast though the sonic barrier. Nor were there any jets."

We'd like to thank the many members who contributed information and clippings on the PAA-UAO near collision which was described in the last bulletin. There were too many to list, but we did very much appreciate the efforts and contributions.
