CAT Kickstarter Project is Live!

The CubeSat Ambipolar Thruster (CAT) began its Kickstarter campaign this week! MXL is working in collaboration with Prof. Benjamin Longmier and PEPL to demonstrate a new propulsion system powered by the Sun and propelled by water, which will push small satellites like CubeSats around and far beyond the Earth. Check out details of the project and the awards available to backers on its Kickstarter page.
