NMSU Superconductor Gravity Experiment: Liquid Helium Fluid Drag Demo

One of the Podkletnov rotation magnetic field arrangements essentially 'points' a set of solenoid at the side of the superconducting disc.

I came across a demonstration from the 1963 movie by Alfred Leitner about liquid helium that uses a very similar setup. The superconducting disc in this case has been replaced by a diamagnetic copper cylinder.
