  1. I didn’t understand three things:
    How the screens acelerate the ion ?
    What is the function of the magnet rings ? are they energized in sequencie
    in order to provide more trhust to the ions trhough the chamber ?
    Why the ion is neutralized after leaving the engine?

  2. Also ion drives propel craft in the opposite direction the drive is facing.
    Until we (re)-discover single-polarity magnets this is the closest thing
    we will have to perpetual motion. Say thank you to the reptoids. lol. cold
    fusion, genetic manipul;ation 

  3. @Kai Tale there ARE negative ions *facepalm* An ion (/ˈaɪən, -ɒn/)[1] is an
    atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the
    total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative
    electrical charge.(adapted from Wikipedia)
    

  4. Wao, slow down… It would not look blue right? electrons aren’t actually
    blue…
    what color would it be?

  5. conclusion, ion propulsion has something to do with IONs, and positive
    charge and negative charge of the atoms… atoms of what ? air?

  6. Mars Initiative ***Exciting announcement*** I’m thrilled to announce that
    Dr. John Brophy, a Fellow Engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, has
    joined our Board of Advisors here at Mars Initiative. Dr. Brophy has worked
    with JPL since 1985 and is responsible for the development and delivery of
    the ion propulsion system for NASA’s Dawn mission. This system will propel
    spacecraft up to 90,000 mph.

  7. ☢☢☢ now just imagine your magnetic rings made of “fresh neutronium” just
    retrieved from that magnetar collision that just happened all those
    millennium ago
    = when the netronium was again saturated, it could be used form the hard
    drive in a long lasting durable archive computer hard drive
    – or just waist the engine waiste in another religious trinket such as a
    Ark of Covenant & woow the belief heads with neutron radiation poisoning to
    strike the fear of god into them

  8. Evolutionary Thruster Xenon da NASA (NEXT) projeto completou o teste de
    longa duração para um sistema de propulsão Space (48 mil horas / 5 1/2
    anos). Esse olhar para dentro da câmara de descarga propulsores mostra como
    ele funciona.
