11. Superconducting Linear Catapult, Season 4 – Awakening –

Instructors Prof. Nagato Yanagi and Dr. Gen Motojima

The superconducting linear catapult is expected to be useful to launch cargos from the moon to the earth orbit, filled with helium 3 which is an advanced fuel for fusion. This year, as the 4th season of the project, a revolutionary improvement for the electromagnetic propulsion system will be installed and examined.
