Project Hathor - 2000 Volt Test Firing

More fun with the ring launcher, Project Hathor.

After the catastrophic failure of the first coil plate, we made a new one out of sturdier material, which hopefully should hold up better.

After the 2000 volt firing, we had yet another hard drive platter which now lives on the roof. And had to restring the coil, since firing it at those voltages caused enough force to break most of the wire ties holding the 10 gauge wire in place. Since the backing plate stayed in tack, it was quick to repair. And the rest of the night was spent with some lower powered tests under 1200 volts.
