"Impossible" Rockets? The EM Drive and the Cannae Drive

Welcome back, space fans! Today, we're going to look at a new, experimental, "exotic" type of propulsion, known as a Radio Frequency Resonant Cavity thruster, electromagnetic thruster, or RF/EM drive, for short. 

These thrusters have been making news, for better or for worse, as "impossible" rocket thrusters that could get us to the far reaches of the Solar System incredibly quickly AND apparently will do so without fuel.

In today's post, we will explore a little of what this means, what is true, what is not, and why this is important.

Staying Productive

Bonjour, tout le monde et bienvenue sur Embrasse l'espace! Welcome back! I hope all is well with you! Today's post is a little different, consisting of a compilation of reviews of some things I've been reading/watching/playing lately. I am still waiting on paperwork in order to begin the next stage of my life and while I wait, I have worked hard to keep myself busy.

Introduction to CubeSats

Hello! Today on Embrace Space, we are going to take an introductory look at CubeSats! These small satellites have been proving themselves very useful lately and I wanted to take the time to bring you up-to-speed on what a CubeSat is and why they are important. I will soon be working quite closely with CubeSats and before I tell you about some interesting projects, I wanted to review the basics.

For anyone already heavily involved in this industry, this review may be unnecessary, but for the rest of you, I think you'll find this useful and a great jumping point to learning about some very interesting projects coming up!

Introduction to Satellites

Today, on Embrace Space, we are going to examine satellites! This cursory introduction will help familiarize you with what is necessary for a satellite to function. If you're already familiar, feel free to come back later when these posts become more technical and focus on interesting new developments in the industry!
