As advanced in-space propulsion moves from science fiction to reality, the Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket, or VASIMRengine, is a leading contender for making 'Mars in a month' a possibility. A paradigm shift in space transportation, this book is an in-depth and compelling story co-written by its inventor. It traces the riveting history of the development of the VASIMRengine. This landmark technology is grounded in concepts of advanced plasma physics. It cross-pollinates ideas and disciplines to offer a new, practical, and sustainable solution for in-space transportation beyond low Earth orbit in the decades to come. Invented by the co-holder of the world's spaceflight record, astronaut Franklin Chang D¨Şaz, the VASIMR engine is developed by Ad Astra Rocket Company in its Texas facilities with NASA as part of the NextSTEP VASIMRpartnership. With adequate funding, the first spaceflight of the VASIMRengine is imminent. Plasma rockets feature exhaust velocities far above those achievable by conventional chemical rockets. The VASIMRengine is the most advanced high-power plasma propulsion system operating in the world today and it may place long, fast interplanetary journeys withinour reach in the near future.
