Tether Technology is a new and
innovative propulsion technique used for
launching Spacecraft into its orbit or
directing it towards a particular planet which
is set as its destination. The principle used is
the momentum exchange. This means that
the momentum of the spinning tether would
be employed to boost the satellite or the
shuttle. This tether technology will have a
greater impact in future propulsion system.
