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.
