FastMHZ shows off their latest project, an EM rocket. Video clip after the jump. Here’s how it works:

That’s right, “rockets” launched with nothing more than electricity. Unlike gauss guns/coilguns, which are reluctance based, these are induction based…electricity goes through a coil, which imparts a current into aluminum, which then itself becomes magnetic…the repulsion of the coil and aluminum launch the rocket itself
