Normally we tend to think that satellites are big structures , as big as a ordinary bus. In order align these satellites in outer space , massive engines are required just for the slightest nudge. But as technology gets better , smaller smarter satellites have taken over, some just bigger than a rubik’s cube. And too align these , the usage of massive engines or machinery doesn’t make any sense.
MIT has taken it upon themselves to solve this problem and have come up with “microthrusters” . These microthrusters are as big as a penny . These will be mounted on tiny satellites . These devices emit ion beams and can push a two pound structure in space. A lot of these can be mounted to allow for more sophisticated movements.
