Figure 7. Bottled up energy in a standing scalar EM wave is a potential.
Figure 8. EGP short-out. Transmitter failure and consequent discharge of a giant standing scalar EM wave potential caused the explosion of stored nuclear wastes at Kyshtym, USSR, in the winter of 1957-58.
Figure 9. EGP initiation of the Chernobyl event. Failure of another giant transmitter near Chernobyl in 1986 eventually caused the eruption of one of the Chernobyl reactors by EGP-pulsing its nuclear fuel rods. When the transmitter failed, the alarmed Soviets shut down the four Chernobyl reactors while waiting for drain-off of the EGP potential by the safety circuits of the disabled transmitter. These circuits finally gave way, producing a mild EGP pulse into the earth. Had they failed immediately, all four reactors at Chernobyl would have violently exploded.
