Re: I: ionic propulsion motor



Greg,

By 'ion motor' I take it you are referring to the Ammonia powered arcjet. I
did not realise that the two were synonymous. The following items would
indeed suggest that they are similar if not the same concept.

Historically, I have had a much different idea of ion drive which did not
involve ejecting gas at high speed. If anyone has the time, I would
appreciate being enlightened.
