Abstract:

Research was directed toward obtaining a basic understanding of magnetohydrodynamics. The initial studies led to three possible applications for magnetohydrodynamics which in turn led to three categories of research. The first application appeared in connection with the problem of high-altitude, very high velocity flight which we call fight magnetohydrodynamics. The second application was plasma propulsion. The third category was the production of a very high temperature collision-free plasma. Author
