=============================
If this works, which I hope, Mars colonies just got a bit closer. We need to head out into space. I hope some future President doesn't Deep-Six Bush's return to the Moon program.

Propelling and protection all by plasma. If only we could figure out a way to replace oxigen, food and stop aging by plasma, we could all travel in plasma bubbles until eternity! I think at least it's a great new step to boldly go where no man has gone before.

QUOTE: "Future spacecraft might be powered by advanced engines that use plasma as a propellant. In that case, the discarded plasma could be recycled for use as a radiation shield. "You're protected by your own exhaust," Slough says."

Even environmentalists will support this plan!
