Designing A Next-Gen Ionic Thruster! (For Flight)

A YouTuber builds a working ionic thruster. Why? I have two answers. One, why not? and Secondly, for Beltalowda! In my attempt to answer that – I built a next-gen ionic thruster, and only shocked myself about a dozen times in the process. Thank you to Steven Barret at MIT for providing his airplane footage, […]
