of Rocket Propulsion
and Potential Space Drives
What kind of rocket engines will we
need to move around the Solar System? And what are some of the notional
ideas for interstellar manned travel? Learn about all this and the
history of rocket engines too.
There is lots of interest these days in space exploration.
fifty years we are looking at going back to the Moon to build a base
and early planning for a manned trip to Mars.
After that, further exploration and settlement of the Solar System will
be on the table.
One of the main limiting factors for all of this space exploration are
the types of rockets and rocket engines available to get there.
Current rockets in usage are mainly chemical rockets with fairly low
specific impulses. We will need a lot more powerful options to reach
all of these destinations.
This book is about the history of rocket engine development, what we
are using today, and some options for the future.
We also discuss some exciting thinking about how we could build
interstellar and faster than light space propulsion for exploring the
nearest stars too.
