News from Stanford's Science Libraries
Prof. Brian Cantwell has a new IEEE Spectrum feature article reporting on the work of Stanford University researchers who are improving hybrid rockets. These hybrids are designed to deliver a huge amount of thrust while avoiding the most dangerous drawback of liquid-fueled and solid-propellant rockets—uncontrolled combustion and explosion.
Read the full article in IEEE Spectrum.
