    Lab-made solar wind

    Anybody has more details about this experiment? (subscription to ScienceNews is not free)

    - Does the plasma physically spin?
    - If so at what tangential speed?
    - What is the required heat?

    Ok so a 3-meters wide apparatus is required:

    So that cannot be replicated that easily.

    “And if you don’t have natural solar wind in your pantry, lab-made is fine.”
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!
