Anyway, here are some links: The Biefeld—Brown effect is an electrical phenomenon that produces an ionic wind that transfers its momentum to surrounding neutral particles. I’m not talking about something for launch.

Biefeld-Brown effect

In a series of papers co-authored with fellow university physicist Douglas G. The article also mentioned the “gravitator,” an invention by Brown which produced motion without the use of electromagnetism, gears, propellers, or wheels, but instead using the principles of what he called “electro-gravitation.

Common to positive results is that the force observed is small in comparison to experiments efffct at standard pressure.

I had got ahold of the original patents by a guy named de Seversky. Any application in the future for a craft would need a lot of electric power This creates a high field gradient around the smaller, positively charged electrode. Inhomogenous field is produced by applying dc bias between a horizontal flat electrode and the tip of a conical bottom electrode of an electrostatic capacitor.


Experiments have been conducted and found to both prove and disprove a force at very low pressure. A light balsa frame, aluminum foil, some wires, and 30, volts will make a levitating model craft for which no clear explanation exists for that behavior.

As for the maser lightcraft, I’d never heard of it, sounds interesting, do you have any more info on this? TO suggest they work in a near vacuum, tut tut.


Retrieved from ” https: You are commenting using your Facebook account. The lifter is essentially an open electrostatic ion engine, using the atmosphere or solar wind as a working medium. Brown believed that his large, high voltage, high capacity capacitors produced an electric field strong enough to marginally interacted with the Earth’s gravitational pull, a phenomenon he labeled electrogravitics.

For example, two parallel metal plates will feel a minute force, called the Casimir effect, pulling them together. The vacuum biefels the plates thus has more energy, so it squeezes the plates together.

So, with abalative laser propulsion, you can get a SSTO LV and your major vehicle costs is the laser blefeld on the ground which, unlike most reusable LV systems, dosn’t have to be brodn out the ocean This effect may provide new tools for investigation of the quantum nature of our world. It seemed to me that it generated more lift than could be generated by the ionic wind it developed, but it may have been electrostatically repelled from the carpeting as well.


Biefeld–Brown effect – Wikipedia

There is even a limit to its thrust effectiveness: Notes from the Rabbit Hole 3: Based on an analysis of experimental data taken on the Biefeld-Brown effect, a case is made for describing bieteld effect as a secondary electrostatic effect related to the global electric field. Townsend Brown, – Tanglewood Books, Chapter During the glow discharge region, the air becomes a conductor.

Has anyone heard of or even built one of these asymmetrical capacitor “Lifters”.

Leik Myrabo brpwn done some real engineering work on an air ionisation drive with the power supplied by ground-based lasers. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: If absorbed, the pressure is the energy flux density divided by the speed of light.

Biefeld–Brown effect

The effect is generally believed to rely on corona dischargewhich allows air molecules to become ionized near sharp points browb edges. How does that impact the mass flow?
