Have you ever wondered what happens if you get an Electrical engineering student, an Aerospace engineering student and a professor in space and plasma physics and give them a couple of wrenches and some time?
As have we! And we now know the answer!
One important aspect of our experiment is the distribution of particles into the atmosphere. At the moment we have two proposed delivery systems, one is delivery of particles via spray and the other is distribution via explosives. In order for our experiment to be success full we need to determine which of these approaches generates the most optimal distribution of particles. These delivery systems are going to be tested inside a vacuum chamber to determine which one spreads particles most effectively.
Admittedly there is still some work to be done before the vacuum chamber can be used. We will of course inform you on our continuing progress.
