The X3 Ion thruster propels spacecraft by accelerating a stream of electrically charged atoms, known as ions. In the recent demonstration the X3 broke records for the maximum power output, thrust and operating current.
Researchers created a model that accurately reflects current rainfall conditions and suggests that future changes could have significant consequences for regional water. “This study represents fundamental science relating to the physics of the North American monsoon”
198 honey samples were collected from around the world. 75% of the samples tested positive for contamination.
