On June 15, 2018, I sent a draft protocol proposal to several experienced people who expressed interest in advancing Phase 2. Caroline Cory's team will build the new prototype, based on my original device (now located at the University of Utah special collections library). When that phase 2 system is built, located and ready, we should be ready with a new protocol and schedule.
I received immediate feedback from three potential influencers, all of whom are located far from each other: Kyra, in Southern California, was first. (It was Kyra who, on July 12, 2015, made the first successful strike, albeit in a surprisingly unexpected way! [See earlier RPK blog post.] Next was Niko, in Albania. Obviously experienced and skilled, who offered supplemental video footage of some of his own documentary work and who made me aware of a potential hazard that we need to be alerted for. Third was Anita in South Africa, already well advanced personally, but eager to participate in a scientific approach.
I will report the highlights of our communication as we proceed, along with my own responses for the record, as was done in phase one.
