I was recently looking over my Ion propulsion sites and came up with an idea. Ok basiclly an Ion drive needs time to speed up and also to charge. What
if insted of one drive you had 2 or 3. They would charge up from collecting atoms from space. And during the big burn you could let in a huge amount
of atoms from lets say tanks. Wouldnt a bigger flow of fuel in this case atoms produce a higher reaction in the reaction chamber and more exhaust
gases?? Just a thought of mine any comments??
