Dusty Plasma

a glass tube in a helix shape. the line of blue light you see is plasma the path of the red light is plasma trail from the path of a particle being forced into hyper-velocity by the electromagnetic field of the plasma stream. Dusty plasmas similar to this can be seen in Saturn's rings.
