Experiment at the University of Wyoming: They grew a crystal from a center point outwards to form a transparent "bowling ball" crystal. They then mirrored the surface as to reflect the inner crystal inwards upon itself. They then opened a small opening at the top of it and shot in a large load of light that followed the path of the grown crystals to the reflective surface and then back to the center core of the crystal where it intensified at each pass. The experiment was to see if it would amplify itself. It did all to well. Within four hours this device exploded in an empty class room at night. According to witnesses outside, there was a brilliant flash of white light and then glass and furniture went everywhere. Question: Was this our first photon torpedo? The inventor of this "crystal battery" was eventually hired on by the same dept. that originally threatened his life over the rights to the technology.
