    As a tenth grader with electronics on the mind, ionocraft is probably one of the most interesting topics I have run across(besides the Casimir effect; that, I believe, is quantum physics). But, what I am truly interested in is whether or not it is possible, with the use of technologies such as microchannel plates or electron multipliers, to produce a viable ionocraft that could actually have a practicle use. Do you think this is possible? Give your opinion(of course, with some reasoning).

    Welcome to the PF.

    We generally do not allow polls in the technical forums here on the PF (as opposed to the General Discussion forum, where polls are generally allowed).

    I have closed this thread. Please re-post your question, but not in poll form. Also, you may want to post in the Mechanical Engineering/Aerospace forum instead, which would seem to be a better match for your question.
