Thomas Chenhall's paper placed second in the Electric Spacecraft Competition because of its level of practicality. He outlined an experiment designed to augment the Biefeld-Brown effect. It used a series of very thin layers of a material of high dielectric constant sandwiched between metal sheets of alternating polarity. The plates were round with a bulge in the middle, creating in their composite a flying saucer shape.
