    Ionocraft Lifter Experiments: A lifter that is an asymmetrical capacitor which uses High Voltage (> 20KV) to produce a thrust. with references dating back to in a book titled Physico-Mechanical Experiments on Various Subjects by Francis Hauksbee. However, its use for propulsion was first given serious thought by Thomas Townsend Brown. On t.-p. of v. 1: The I. part. Written by way of letter, to the Right Honourable the Lord Clifford and Dungarvan. Whereto is annext a short discourse Of the atmospheres of consistent bodies; v. 2: The second part: wherein are contained divers experiments made both in compressed and also in factitious air, about fire, animals, &c. Together with a description of the engines wherein they .

    The principle of ionic (air) propulsion with corona-generated charged particles has been known since the earliest days of the discovery of electricity, with references dating back to year in a book titled Physico-Mechanical Experiments on Various Subjects by Francis Hauksbee. Capillary action (sometimes capillarity, capillary motion, or wicking) is the ability of a liquid to flow in narrow spaces without the assistance of, and in opposition to, external forces like effect can be seen in the drawing up of liquids between the hairs of a paint-brush, in a thin tube, in porous materials such as paper, in some non-porous materials such as liquefied carbon.

    Plate illustrates Hauksbee’s introduction (pp) to his book, entitled ‘A General Description of the Air-Pump made use of in the following Experiments’. Plate I from Physico-mechanical experiments on various subjects, by Francis Hauksbee (London, ), presented to the Royal Society by the author on 26 October Physics -- Experiments.
