The second objective is propulsion. This is achieved by emitting pulsed cathode rays out of one end of the craft tuned to the rate of change of jet stream particles surrounding the bubble. At the other end of the craft, cations are emitted at the same rate of change. This creates a push/pull effect, doubling the ship’s acceleration and velocity capabilities.
