Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are many different methods of spacecraft propulsion used to change the velocity of spacecraft and artificial satellites. Each method has drawbacks and advantages, and spacecraft propulsion is an active area of research.

This category includes technologies and concepts related to spacecraft propulsion systems, but not specific examples of such systems (such as the Space Shuttle Main Engine).

The main article for this category is Spacecraft propulsion.
