ABSTRACT — In gas studies conducted at Quantum Rabbit (QR) lab in Nashua, New Hampshire, USA, in November and December
2005, QR researchers recorded the anomalous appearance of argon in vacuum tubes containing oxygen and helium plasma. Results were
monitored and recorded by residual gas analyzer (RGA).
