Electric ducted fan supported platform reduces the apparent weight of the experimental lander vehicle by 5/6ths in order to test operation in the Moon’s gravity… without actually, you know, going to the Moon. After being shown their test videos, I decided to build myself a ducted fan thruster that was bigger than theirs. That’s it. That’s the entire reason I’m doing this – so I can have the biggest EDF array on campus. After all, I can’t work without a false sense of competition and engineering machismo.
