Re: Impluse Engines to be a reality by 2030?

^Oh god please, not that stupid "build the Enterprise" crap again. That guy's a loon.

Where did you read about building "space docks on the moon"? Not gonna happen in any near future time frame if at all. Why build them in a gravity field when you can put them in orbit?

Don't current satellites have impulse thrusters? Low power ones I think.
Hall effect ion thrusters have been used on some satellites in recent years for station keeping. They're not the same as fictional "impulse engines".
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
