Developping plasma space thrusters: invited talk for Chaminade

On the 27th of September 2023, Mario Merino gave a talk to Colegio Mayor Universitario Chaminade in Madrid, about the development of the plasma space thrusters of the future.

The talk was aimed at university students interested in delving deeper into space exploration and engineering. It was an excellent opportunity to speak about the use of computer simulations to understand and design thrusters for space missions under the framework of the ZARATHUSTRA project, and hopefully inspire some students to work on these topics in the future.

Please stay tuned as we have more events like this one scheduled shortly!
