Paddy Neumamm, Chief Scientist and Founder of Neumann Space joins us to talk about their solar-electric ion drive. The Neumann Drive can run on a variety of solid metallic fuels. This means that the Neumann Drive can run on nearly any metal likely to be found in asteroids, as well as on sintered-down space junk. So not only can you go further with a Neumann Drive, but you can refuel with whatever you find when you get there.
