Space travel has become a routine in the present world. Space is even a permanent settlement to some astronauts onboard the international Space Station. However, when you think of the size of our solar system, not to mention the universe, we have just taken baby steps into space. Conventional rocket propulsion is based on chemical propulsion systems. Now different methods have been evolved. This seminars will give an overview of some of the advanced propulsion methods like SOLAR THERMAL ROCKET PROPULSION, ELECTROSTATIC ION PROPULSION DRIVES, HALL EFFECT DRIVES, ELECTROTHERMAL AND ELECTROMAGNETIC THRUSTERS, LIGHTSAILS AND LIGHTCRAFTS, SPACE BUTTERFILES and will give a detailed description of FUSION PROPULSION CONCEPT which is regarded as latest among advanced propulsion methods. The different propulsion methods discussed in this seminars give better specific impulse and better efficiency than conventional methods of propulsion. The latest one among all these methods - fusion propulsion is the most promising method for rapid travel. Greater amount of payload carrying capacity and safety are the other features of fusion propulsion.
