I recently asked a question about a real phenomenon I saw at the end of a documentary, I can't help that at the time the only thing I could find on it was at the end of this documentary which isn't something most would consider 'real' science, however the device shown is a known and real phenomenon called an Ionocraft (I now know this). I understand that the name of the documentary may have mislead some, but I assure you that I am asking about something perfectly real and proven to exist in science.
Before asking the question I looked at the site's help question and I thought this would be on-topic because of this bit:
Explanations of observed physical or astronomical phenomena Example: Why does one experience a short pull in the wrong direction when a vehicle stops?
This is the question: How does the "lifter"/ionocraft device work?
I hope that it can be reopened or at least for me to be given a proper explanation of why it was closed. Saying you won't answer a perfectly real question and just saying it's "non-mainstream" seems ridiculous to me if it's accepted in science to be real and there is proof for it. If there is a better SE site to ask about this on, then please let me know. Or of how I could improve my question.
