Construction is to Begin on the Nassikas Thruster II Prototype


The Indiegogo crowd funding campaign for the Nassikas II levitation thruster ended on June 2nd (  At that point a total of 285 backers had provided 60% of the needed $32,000 goal amount.  This amounted to 54% of the needed funds after subtracting credit card and PayPal fees as well as the Indiegogo commission.  However, at the conclusion of the campaign, an angel donor, Dorothy, came forward and contributed the remaining $14,618  needed to achieve our goal.  Thanks to Dorothy and all the others who contributed, we were able to inform the superconductor manufacturer to begin work on the conical superconducting coil.  This phase will take several months, the time needed for the company to schedule and begin work on the coil construction.

If the liquid nitrogen test is successful, we will need an additional $9000 to conduct an additional liquid helium test of the coil’s propulsion force.  Those wishing to make further contributions to this project, i.e., $50 or more per donation, may still submit them through PayPal by submitting to email address (Starlane Publications).  Funds thus submitted will be added to the Nassikas thruster project account.  For those wishing to make very large donations by bank transfer to our dedicated bank account for the project, please send an email to

More information about the Nassikas thruster II research project may be found here:

Early in the crowdfunding campaign, researcher Fajfer Remigiusz built a conical solenoid wound from copper wire to test for the production of a propulsive thrust toward the coil’s narrow end.  The video he posted of his tests is shown below

When he energizes the coil in pulsed fashion, the coil is seen not only to twist but to swing in the direction of its narrow end.  The twisting action is likely the tendency of the coil to orient its magnetic pole in the direction of the geomagnetic field.  However, the swinging of the coil to an off plumb position appears to indicate the development of a propulsive force as predicted by Dr. Nassikas (PCT  GR2016000009).

    Size Really Matters with Superconductors

    Resultant Magnetic Strength = (Amps x Turns) ÷ Coil Length
    Increasing coil Turns allows you to proportionately decrease input Amps.

    < 100µm OD, room-temperature electrically superconducting
    magnetically excited xenon gas filled SiO2 “Plasma Capillaries”
    will allow for thousands of times more coil turns in the same coil space, thereby proportionately allow for thousands of times less electrical input power to create the same required working magnetic field strength.

      Mike where’d you get this data?

      • Mike Hingle says:

        I was abducted by aliens & they told me. 😏 Just kidding. You don’t think that magnetically excited xenon gas is superconducting?

        “March 2016 marks 5 years since room-temperature superconductivity was first achieved. However, this anniversary is bittersweet, as the scientific community persistently refuses to vet or even investigate the 35 Room Temperature compounds discovered so far by Superconductors.ORG.”

        How about charging & pulsing Tesla Bifilar coils (replacing capacitors) and dumping the BEMF into the conical coils? This could provide highly efficient high frequency, high current excitation, with extremely short duty cycles. Nikola Tesla explains that a standard coil of 1000 turns with a potential of 100 volts across it will have a difference of 0.1 volt between turns. A similar BIFILAR coil will have a potential of 50 volts between turns. In that the stored energy is a function of the square of the voltages the energy in the BIFILAR will be … 50 squared / .1 squared = 2500 / .01 = 250,000 times greater than the standard coil.

    Paul, I usually get my updates thru Richard Hoagland’s show, which you were on months ago. I have been fascinated by this thruster and have shown it to anyone who will look at it. In particular I know a physicist who worked at FermiLab and he has always asserted that it needed peer review for him to accept any part of it. Even the term “ether” prompted a derisive chuckle from him. I’ve always held the notion that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it surely is a duck. I’m counting on you two to prove him ultimately wrong! Regards, Fred

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      There will come a day when physicists will look back on our present times and laugh at the idea that physicists actually believed that space was a void and contained no carrier for fields. Today’s accepted field concepts will go the way of the 17th century phlogiston theory of heat transfer after the advent of Boltzman’s thermodynamics.

      • Fred Koch says:

        Paul, I remember hearing there might be an update on the construction of the mark ii around October. I’m champing at the bit. I need something to keep my mind off the horrific election…

  3. Our company has developed a real propellantless propulsion system that is proven and is now at a major university being evaluated and designed for commercial use. This technology is proven! It has passed all tests including a balanced pendulum test. Our problem has been investors they have all promised and never deliver. THIS IS REAL it will change every aspect of space travel.
    We are based out of Atlanta. any help will be appreciated. We are looking for bridge money until grant from university comes in.

  4. Jimmie says:

    Any possible updates on the status regarding the production of the thruster? I can’t wait to see this thing!

  5. Larry Adams says:

    Congratulations, Dr. LaViolette!

    From the first mini-thruster to this one is real progress.

    But how are you going to keep the coil cool from the rays of the Sun?

    Wishing you all the best.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      it will use a sun screen. Sunscreens are 50 year old technology that NASA uses regularly on their spacecraft.

  6. Karim says:

    I wish all the best for you Dr La Violette ,i watched all your videos in youtube and as a former automation engineer i can’t wait to see the promising results of this method of harvesting power from the ether .

    I wonder if the Podkletnov effect will also be present if the coil spins on its axis, looks like the beginning of something interesting… not to mention the effects of HV discharges perpendicular to the coil in low pressure He.

  8. Standa says:

    Mr. Paul may I ask you where we can check for the latest updates on the building of the Nassikas Thruster II?
    Is it here or perhaps on different site?

    All the best to the Nassikas team on building this device. Thank you for trying to push humanity into the spacefaring age! ( and car flying age too 🙂 )

  9. Ioannis says:

    I support that all kind of such technologies can be explained and engineered over a single theory:


  10. Sean says:

    How long should we expect construction and test to take?

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      Perhaps the coil will be ready to test this coming October. The timing depends partly on the company’s scheduling of the construction.

  11. Zephir says:

    Nassikas Thruster is not just “another realization of propellantless thruster design” – it’s unique device and true perpetuum mobile on its very own. But I’m missing the blind experiment excluding the interference with Earth geomagnetic field in existing demonstrations of it.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      The indication that the Earth’s magnetic field is not causing this is indicated in one of the videos which shows that the thrust disappears when the superconductor has warmed above its critical temperature. If you hang a 0.5 tesla magnet from a string you will not see it doing asymmetrical swinging motions as the Nassikas thruster does.

  12. Ed Mayer says:

    Dear Dr. LaViolette,
    I listened the interview by J B Wells. I read your book about Antigravity that was a total eye-opener, although my knowledge of Quantum Physics is near to none.
    I just wanted to let you know that I just sent a $Cad 50 donation via PayPal to
    I hope you succeed with the test for the progress of humanity and science. As Watt’s, Deimler’s and Tesla’s contribution, this is the time of LaViolette breakthrough.

    Thank you !!!
