I solved the arc discharge barrier. Its really an AC corona motor with no arc breakdown barrier. That permits me to raise the electric field intensity to very high values. Fully developed, the AC ionic thruster can generate tons of static thrust at higher than chemical burn exhaust speeds in both space and atmospheric environment. The DC ionic thruster designed for vacume doesnt work in the atmosphere and in space its static thrust is the weight of one sheet of typing paper. That you see low thrust values is because I built my device with plastic. The motor high static thrust has to be unbreakable glass at cutting edge technology meaning sophisticated lab and expensive high Voltage equipment. Area 51 Skunk works technology.
