24,000j Capacitor Discharge System

In the past I’ve been launching “rockets” via induction pads, and a bunch of other discharge experiments at 3500j of energy…the science, videos and some numbers can be seen throughout this site. Now I’m building a much more massive system of ~24,000j of energy. Induction launchers, coil guns, rail guns, etc etc etc can be […]

Induction Launchers & EM Rocketry

Induction Launchers (aka Mass Driver) A Ring Launcher is an inductive launcher. When the coil is energized, it creates a strong magnetic field around it. Since this coil is flat and a non-ferrous ring is placed direcly upon it, this magnetic field creates a huge rush of current in the ring itself. This current turns […]
