Spacecraft Propulsion Systems

Propulsion systems play an essential role in any mission’s success, enabling spacecraft probes to change their velocity in space and, if needed, escape Earth’s gravity. Spacecraft thrust is determined by the rate of acceleration. Due to conservation of momentum, small accelerations applied over a longer time can generate equal force as greater forces applied quickly. …

Spacecraft Parts

Spacecraft must withstand and operate successfully in the harsh environment of outer space, necessitating structural subsystems that can support any forces generated during launch and ascent of its rocket engine. Spacecraft require propulsion systems in order to change their trajectory and maneuver around space, as well as power sources, communications devices and payload capabilities in …
