Hi All,

I discovered Jeans Lifter yesterday. This is similar to his previous dome experiment where reversing polarity did not matter. This rules out ion acceleration. I have modeled the lifter using simple electrostatic theory and get excellent agreement with Jean's data using first order approximations.

For the simple triangle lifter, I calculate 34KV to hover and 40KV will upward accelerate the lifter at 4.75 meters/second^2 overcoming inertia. This is half of free fall acceleration and is consistent with the video observations. The model will allow scaling, plate size determination and permittivity selection.

Best-
Steve Burns
