The electric propulsion tech is in very early stages of development with promising future. These thrusters use very little space/energy compared with conventional propellants.Few years back,NASA used this propulsion system to manoeuvre some its satellite.
At this point,these systems max output is very very low but once it achieves maturity,it might replace the conventional propulsion system in the spacecrafts.
Good news is,even india started investing in this tech,so this thread might come in handy on tracking the development.
I request our resident science guy @Indx TechStyle to moderate this thread.
