Abstract:: A review of the main works on the study of "strange" radiation is presented - an intense glow that occurs above the explosion chamber during an electric discharge of metal foils in water in it. Photographs of the most diverse structures of tracks-traces of "strange" radiation are presented. Existing hypotheses of particles that leave such traces are outlined: Lochak's magnetic monopole hypothesis, the magneto-toro-electron radiation hypothesis, the tachyon hypothesis, the hypothesis of an intermediate quasi-molecular state of paired electrons, and the "dark" hydrogen hypothesis. Numerical estimates of all discussed hypotheses are given with an explanation of the mechanism of trace formation. The hypothesis of miniature ball lightnings - multiply charged clusters - spherical clusters with a radius of 2.14·10-6 m, having a charge of 4.5·10-12 C is presented. The electric field strength on the surface of such clusters can reach up to 1010 V/m, which is comparable to the electric field strength in an atom. When such a cluster is introduced into the crystal lattice, a strong polarization of the substance is possible, which can facilitate the conditions for the approach of protons and nuclei of elements. This forces us to consider the possibility of nuclear reactions proceeding through the process of overcoming the potential barrier, which lasts for a time that is many orders of magnitude longer than the nuclear collision time in a conventional nuclear process.

Keywords: type of traces of "strange" radiation, hypotheses of the structure of "strange" particles, model of a multiply charged cluster, explanation of the mechanism of traces formation
