Purpose – To suggest a new revolutionary electrostatic linear engine. Design/methodology/approach – Methods of the electrostatic physic are used for research. Findings – Theory of this engine is developed and its possibilities researched. Research limitations/implications – This engine gives a big thrust (up 4 × 10 5 N/m 2 ), uses a high voltage electricity and light wires. Practical implications – This engine can be used as a linear engine (accelerator), as a strong space launcher, as a high speed delivery system for space elevator, Earth‐Moon cable transport space, for an electrostatic levitation train, as a conventional high voltage rotating engine, as an electrostatic electric generator weapon (high speed gun), and so on. Theory of engine applications was developed and it shows powerful possibilities in space, transport and military industries. The projects are computed and show the good potential of the offered new concept. Originality/value – Succeeds in proposing a new revolutionary electrostatic linear engine.
