Title: Mini-Magnetospheric Plasma Propulsion (M2P2)
Url: http://earthweb.ess.washington.edu/space/propulsion.html
Creator: Giersch, Louis
Slough, J.
Winglee, Robert
Ziemba, Tim
Publisher: University of Washington
Description: This site, hosted by the University of Washington's Earth and Space Sciences Program, discusses an advanced plasma propulsion system that will enable spacecraft to attain unprecedented speeds, with minimal energy and mass requirements. The high efficiency attained by the system is due to its utilization of the energy from the solar wind to provide the enhanced thrust.
