Scalar waves do exist. A pressure wave, for instance, is a scalar wave. The
confusion arises when various pseudo-scientists try to describe near-field
and radiated field phenomena using the scalar wave concept.

Actually, I believe that the NASA tether simply used Lenz's Law, whereby a
conductor develops an EMF if it cuts through magnetic field lines -- in this
case the Earth's magnetic field. A conducting ionosphere was not required
for this experiment.

Sounds like good fun to me! I'd certainly check the $10 box on my tax return
for that one!
