NASA Awards Washington Propulsion Research Grant
NASA's Science Mission Directorate has selected the Aerojet Redmond Rocket Center, Redmond, Wash., for a grant to develop advanced propulsion technologies for use beyond Earth orbit. The maximum potential value of the grant is $600,000.
The purpose of the research is to enable or reduce trip times, mass, and/or cost associated with NASA science missions to the outer planets, satellites, and other solar system destinations.
The research also supports the Vision for Space Exploration, NASA's long-term plan to return astronauts to the moon and extend exploration to Mars and beyond into the solar system.
