Ion Thruster

This video shows Neil's science project (an ion thruster) operating, and producing thrust. In this video, you can see the device produce .34 grams of thrust. In the second half of the video, the corona can be seen very well. The scale is a very sensitive JS-50XV reloading scale (designed to measure grains of accelerant).

Many thanks to channel teslacult for both the inspiration, and help with creation of this experiment.

Also thanks to Janelle Roers of the E. Arthur Brown Company for getting the scale shipped quickly!
