Re: "Ion" sounds technical

According to the de Forest Research memo from June 13, 1968, ion propulsion was an improvement over the script's original (and, apparently, nonsense) term, "neutron conversion propulsion."

(The memo does mention that "High velocity ion propulsion would be revolutionary")
