Redesigning Rockets: NASA Space Propulsion Finds a New Home

While the exploration of the Moon and other planets in our solar system is exciting, the first task for astronauts and robots alike is to actually get to those destinations. To facilitate inter-solar system travel, NASA has committed itself to the study of a number of far-out propulsion methods. Researchers are hoping the space agency’s new Propulsion Research Center will help scientists move at least some of those new methods from the theoretical to reality.
