    NO. NASA Engrs know about Tesla coils. If they need one they will use it.

    And how would you use a Tesla coil?  By itself, it does not produce propulsion.  It could possibly be used to heat gases for propulsion.  If so, the arc would be contained inside an engine that would safely contain it. But is it the best way to heat propulsion gases?

    It could be useful in some specifically designed engines apparatus. It's possible to build such an engine. That's probably not the method that'll get you into space tho.
