Rychnowski's plasma spheres

Franciszek Rychnowski (1850 - 1929) was a Polish engineer and an inventor, who also lectured at the Lwów Politechnic. In addition to mundane projects (he was involved with electrification, central heating and the tram system in Lwów, which is now Lviv, Ukraine), he also gained fame for his pseudoscientific theories on eteroid, similar to the concepts of élan vital or orgone; involvement with such pseudoscientific theories eventually ruined his career.[1]

Rychnowski is a minor character in a series of books by the modern Polish author, Andrzej Pilipiuk. He is also one of the central characters in the 2012 fictional conspiracy thriller The Man With the Devil's Hand by Jarek Garliński.
