The trend in solar thermal research over the past two decades has been towards simplification and miniaturization to overcome this complexity barrier in an effort finally mount an in‐flight test. A review of micro‐propulsion technologies recently conducted by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has identified solar thermal propulsion.

    Stuhlinger eventually published a book entitled Ion Propulsion for Space Flight and went on to direct NASA Marshall Space Flight Center's work on arcjet and ion propulsion systems. While he was laying the technical groundwork for ion thruster development between and , a number of engineers and scientists were writing on the subject. Solar photovoltaic (PV) cells, are not very efficient, and the amount of power provided by the Sun over a unit area is relatively modest. A solar-powered aircraft must be lightly built to allow low-powered electric motors to get it off the ground. Such aircraft had been developed in the competition for the Kremer Prize for human-powered flight.

A space station, also known as an orbital station or an orbital space station, is a spacecraft capable of supporting a human crew in orbit for an extended period of time. It lacks major propulsion or landing systems. Stations must have docking ports to allow other spacecraft to dock to transfer crew and supplies. The purpose of maintaining an orbital outpost varies depending on the program.
