AC Thrust: “Forbidden Planet” Flying Saucer Analogy

Note: Gene Watson makes an analogy on how the Science Fiction “Forbidden Planet” saucer could land and take off using his AC thrust concept.

Vertical ascent/decent. Illustrated here tubular ac ionic motors to cousin landing in touchdown
Phase or initial vertical ascent. Ac applied voltage in excess of a hundred thousand volts. Internal
Gas supply rocket turbine exhaust supplying torque power to the ac high voltage generator.
The horizontal ionic thrusters off in the saucer hull surface. Makes sense?

I didn’t think to turn the oscilloscope in the last experiment. As you can see the 50 cycle European AC input the saucer transforms into a higher frequency. There should be harmonics where AC power input converts to linear acceleration even more efficiently. I don’t have lab equipment to raise the applied frequency in search of the best harmonic. As I said earlier, this conversion is very efficient as my amp meter doesn’t move. Increasing the voltage increases the static thrust. The space separation I am using between nude needlepoint array and insulated aluminum strip is 12 mm. Less than 9 mm the ions burn a short hole through the polyester plastic insulation. I don’t have the instrument to raise the voltage past 10,000 Volts. If the best puncture resistant insulating material is used,the whole saucer would glow and the static thrust much higher by raising Ac voltage to just below puncture strength. I know this because I can detect some glow in the dark and the kind of gas influences color.

The saucer could use internally supplied gas from a turbine exhaust that drives the AC generator in a big saucer project I can’t build with my old age pension income.
