2017 Advanced Propulsion Workshop Videos: Day Two

February 1, 2018

The Space Studies Institute proudly presents the complete set of videos of the presentations from the second day of the 2017 Advanced Propulsion Workshop, held Thursday, November 2nd, 2017 in the Sally Ride Board Room of The Aerospace Corporation’s El Segundo, California headquarters.

The presentations spanned a range of Propulsion Physics and Engineering topics with insightful and often entertaining Q&A. We hope that you will give each video a full view and that you will discover, as some of us did while putting the videos together, that even sessions not at first seeming to be in our personal areas of expertise can have real nuggets of directly usable information. Enjoy!
