Types of Spacecraft Thrusters

Spaceship thrusters are essential engines that propel spaceships forward at tremendous speeds, changing their course or making minor corrections to its trajectory. Thrust is determined by specific impulse, while propellant mass plays an inverse relationship to this equation. Performance specifications of propulsion systems depend on specific impulse, exhaust velocity and power-to-mass ratio as primary measurements […]
