Lanciatore didattico elettromagnetico per lo Spazio
Taking advantage of the relatively small lunar gravity, Space Transportation programs (e.g. NASA) have proposed Electromagnetic Launchers (EML) for use on the Moon to fuel interplanetary probes, sending Lunar-produced fuel to space. Electromagnetic propulsion system such as the one we propose for education, may be easily built in any school lab, yet they have the potential to connect high school students with challenging concept in electromagnetism, celestial mechanics, renewable energies, optimal use of resources, all in a very stimulating educational package.
