The primary endeavor in the writer's investigation was to make a preliminary exploration to determine if such a glow could function at all in supersonic airflow, to design apparatus with which an electrical glow discharge from a sharp point could be studied, and also to determine if the glow is pressure or velocity dependent at Mach numbers greater than one,
