TSS (Tethered Satellite System)
Having finished writing about the space elevator , I am moving on to another spacelaunch method in this new article in the non-rocket spacelaunch series . Tether propulsion consists in using long, very strong cables (known as tethers) to change the velocity of spacecraft and payloads. Tether propulsion
The use of tethers in space poses many challenges and safety issues. This third part to the tether propulsion article will focus on those issues. A lot of the challenges and safety issues of a space tether system are similar to those of a space elevator described in a previous article , but some are unique to the space tether concept. Tether propulsion safety issues
Tether propulsion in fiction This is the fourth and final part of the tether propulsion article of the non-rocket spacelaunch methods article series. This post will focus on references to the tether propulsion concept in fiction. The most prominent science fiction novels on the subject include:
Tether satellite missions This is the second part to the article about tether propulsion .
