What they didn't mention in TFA is that they're really shutting down the experiment because the device they used to monitor it can only operate for five years.  That's the problem when you use ionic pentameter.

"I do believe that he said thrusting."
"You are correct. He then said pack it in."

So, did we find God?


What does God need with an ion propulsion engine?

Lochsteppe: debug: It doesn't really seem like that kind of life span would actually be necessary.  Once you're in zero G wouldn't inertia pretty much keep you going?  You would just need thrusters for course changes, right?

TFA talks about its use for scooting around the solar system, mining asteroids for crystals to make Sinibombs & such.  Doesn't sound like they plan to use it for a straight shot to the next star system right away.


Run, coward!!!

"I've never seen anything like her. And ion propulsion at that. They could teach us a thing or two."
