In 34th Aerospace Sciences Meeting and by: 8.   NASA will probably need to develop superfast new propulsion technologies if it hopes to keep astronauts safe and healthy during the long journey to Mars, experts say.

    Electric propulsion system scaling for asteroid capture-and-return missions Justin M. Little⇤ and Edgar Y. Choueiri† Electric Propulsion and Plasma Dynamics Laboratory, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, The requirements for an electric propulsion system needed to maximize the return mass. Abstract —Electric propulsion (EP) technologies offer performance advantages compared to chemical systems. The implementation of electric thrusters in small spacecraft has been prohibited by the high power demands of conventional thrusters and the complexity of the required power conditioning units and propellant supply system.

    (1) Performance upgrades to radioisotope power systems (2) Development of a nuclear reactor, ca kWe, to power an electric propulsion system and to provide large amounts of onboard power for scientific and exploration spacecraft. (3) Development of a kWe electric propulsion system (4) Does not include nuclear thermal propulsionFile Size: 1MB. As a federal agency, NASA has one of the federal government's three largest procurement budgets. The Department of Energy (DOE) and the Defense Department (DOD) round out the trio. With the subsequent proposal in Congress of "H Prize" funding for breakthroughs in hydrogen fuel-related technology, the Department of Energy is poised to join NASA and DARPA's Defense Department in fortifying this.
