MIT engineers to build flying saucer

Date: 03 January 2022 Tags: Space
  • Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States have made a concept hovering rover that could levitate on the surface of the Moon and other asteroids.
  • Using the surface charge of the airless space bodies and beam of ions that the levitator emits through its nozzles, the vehicle could defy gravity using electrostatic force.
  • In the absence of an atmosphere, the Moon and other airless bodies like asteroids can accumulate electric fields, thanks to the constant exposure to the sun and its solar wind.
