An agreement was signed between ESA and Thalès Alenia Space for the development and qualification of the all-electric platform Neo. Because electric thrusters develop a very small thrust, a chemical propulsion module will also be developed for a combined electric-chemical version.
The Boston University Rocket Propulsion Group is one of many youth teams taking part in the Mavericks Civilian Space Foundation, a non-profit that use rocketry to encourage interest in STEM. It might, however, be the most ambitious!
The HYPROGEO website is on-line! You will find reliable (and not too technical) information not only about the HYPROGEO project, but also about hybrid propulsion in general. Feel free to send us your feedback!
