This is a cool idea that I had while reading some physics books so I figured I would give it a try! it turned out a lot better than I thougt it was going to! I hope you enjoy watching it!

What the F*** are our million dollar scientists doing argueing about the health benefits/drawbacks of eggs when random adults and college kids are creating contained plasma fields in their garage.

put it in a bottle so you can control the atmosphere. Measure the voltage to strike arc. Introduce 2% argon into the jar. Measure voltage to ionize again. Nifty gas, Argon. Supposedly inert, noble gas.

You know this is how in the future they might make light sabers. Have a cylinder stretch out from the handle, then rotate at hyper sonic speeds with and immensely powerful version of this device. It should incinerate everything it touches! This is more realistic than assuming light can be solid as in star wars lol. Throw in as a safety measure an insanely powerful magnetic field just to keep the darn thing from exploding to bits due to the high speed of the rotation of the tube.

oh yea i believe with enough amperage and improved design it will easily vaporize organic matter and at least disrupt electronics and detonate explosives

i cant believe that some people think this is fake...this is obviously real
trying flipping magnet polarity and see if it spins the other way (right-hand-rule). Nice spark.
the only way to find out if works is to stick your finger into it...for science!
