By Alberto Rossi, Head of Propulsion, Pyrotechnics and Aerothermodynamics, CNES.
Space propulsion systems have a big influence on our ability to travel to other planets or how a satellite can provide cheap telecommunications services. This conference aims to provide an up-to-date overview of all kinds of propulsion systems ranging from conventional (Chemical) technology, from nuclear propulsion to electric propulsion systems, to solar and even revolutionary sail propulsion. The limitations of current concepts will be shown with a glimpse of what they might look like in the future. From historical developments, the listener will be taken on a journey showing all kinds of amazing technology. CNES is actively involved in advanced propulsion research and contributes with its know-how and experience to many of the topics presented. The conference is designed for anyone interested in how to travel in space.
