Submission + - Flying saucer patent

meridian writes: "An aerospace engineering professor from University of Florida, Subrata Roy, has patented a method for a Flying Sauce (ScienceDaily). It has no moving parts so is considered highly reliable and works using magnetohydrodynamics which involves magnetic fields passing over conductive liquid and forming plasma on electrodes covering the flying saucers surface causing air to circulate around the device and produce lift. NASA has expressed an interest in licensing this technology."
