ULA IVF and their H2-O2 Thruster System program ; can Cryogenic Xenon be cooled with LH2?

December 25, 2014

A number of years ago I mused with Mr. Bernard Kutter of ULA about the idea of keeping LHe 2 cool with a fuel depot. The LHE 2 was for transfer to the cryogenic space telescope. Later I discarded the idea in favor of a fuel tanker delivering the cryogenic helium to space telescope and then making its fuel depot run.

On selenium boondocks, I  posted comments  on ideas of hybrid chemical ion hybrid in space stages but now I would like to write more about disposal burns  that could be further optimized with a cryogenic Xenon in space  powered ion engine
