This prototype shows that thrust can be produced by plasma electrolysis - it burns water, so to speak.
The system has to be optimized to avoid "unburned" droplets. In this early prototype the water injection is triggered manually by short pumping bursts of an electric membrane pump. The next version will be designed to have an active burn control and the ability to operate with low voltage (high amps).
Hopefully the integration in nanosatellites will be possible.
