Ionic thrusters challenge jet engines for efficiency

Largely regarded as a scientific curiosity, a new investigation into electrohydrodynamic thrust has found that it may actually be more efficient than jet propulsion. Electrohydrodynamic thrust – sometimes referred to as “ionic wind” – was first identified in the 1960s. A basic ionic thruster consists of three parts: a very thin copper electrode, called an […]
