Take a pair of electrodes separated by the desired distance in a deuterium envelope and apply a few million volts to get a discharge?
The big discussion way back when was instability, apparently the filaments twisted around and slammed into the container walls. I find that interesting, isn't lightning pretty stable? It seems to branch into areas of lesser resistance but I don't see it doing curly q's in the air too often...
On the other hand I have observed large curling effects when messing around with plasma ball toys, the plasma definitely looks unstable in that case. But isn't that an AC discharge vs DC?
