A railgun for the study of the interaction of meteorites with planetary surfaces and the interaction of space debris was developed. The authors have attained a velocity constantly higher than 5 km/s, with a maximum of 6 km/s. The importance of plasma confinement behind the projectile to prevent a leakage is shown to realize a high velocity. An effective acceleration using an aluminum rail is also shown
