The easiest way to produce this kind of plasma is to explode a decent
sized bomb. The energy density will have decreased a few orders of
magnitude by the time the fire-ball stops expanding, but I think this
should give you an idea what such a plasma would look and "feel" like.

Oh. If you aren't willing to check for an answer in the newsgroup, then
I guess you don't really care about the question.
