During the most recent total solar eclipse seen from Europe and Asia, scientists tested what has been called the Allais effect. Foucault pendulums apparently behave abnormally during total solar eclipses. What are the scientific implications of this ?
I don’t think you’ll hear too much talk about possible ramifications until the effect is better replicated. Right now it is still in the realm of “That was neat, what was it and did it really happen?”.
Here’s a link to a good site concerning the Allais effect - http://science.msfc.nasa.gov/newhome/headlines/ast06aug99_1.htm As for results of the recent experiments - well, don’t hold your breath. The article says:
