    I wonder does this effect carry upwards? If you create a layer of plasma around an air pocket will it not have any drag through the air? Could i then theoretically launch a fart ball at someone without any dissipation if i somehow surround it with plasma?

    If torpedoes used this, would they still be able to steer? Seems like the air pocket around it would prevent it from changing direction or even the propeller moving it as it would be in an air bubble.

    There are two types of drag, the drag force of moving particles out of the way, and the force of the molecules as it slides past them; including the vortices on the back face. You cannot eliminate one part of those drag molecules (having to push the molecules out of the way), which is why the coefficient cannot go to zero, but you can eliminate the the drag portion of sliding past the molecules, practically to zero, because the pocket moves with the ball. It should actually form an effect like those robots made of bags, or those "water snakes". The air at the sides of the pocket are stationary compared to the center, where the pocket actually pushes the ball down, and speeding up the ball until the forces of pushing and accelerating the water out of the way counteracts the weight of mass in water.

    The principle is already applied in modern cruise ships, which inject air below the waterline at the bows, which reduces fuel consumption by about 5%. I can think of an excellent way of reducing their fuel consumption by 100%, but while Covid has achieved this temporarily I can’t see it happening permanently. The motive is of course reducing costs rather than any serious considerations of environmental concerns, but I suppose at least it’s something.

    PLEASE REPLY. I was just laying in bed thinking about how the powder on the water creates a hydrophobic layer. If you were to do the same thing on a swimming pool and jump in what would happen? In my mind there’s 3 opinions. 1. you float. 2. You sink and can’t swim back up due to lower resistance ect. 3. Does very little and you can swim without getting wet to some extent. Would really appreciate any answers as I can’t sleep now 🤣

    Clear and easy demonstration. I want to point out that there is kind of a third way to cover the lift body with gas, it is cavitation. The output is similar to the leidenfrost effect but appears naturaly with pressure drops due to velocity (no need to keep it warm). There is a whole lots of researsh in this area since the WWII i think (kw: supercavitation, hyperveloce water vehicules/projectiles). Have fun.
