NASA is teaming up with this startup to develop hover engines for space

Arx Pax announced a partnership with NASA to develop applications for its magnetic levitation technology. The startup’s hover technology could help small satellites fly in formation for data, imaging, and other applications. The hover engines technology generates controllable directional thrust between an electric engine and a passive conductive surface such as copper or aluminum. This could allow tiny satellites to fly in controlled formation, forming what’s known as a distributed satellite system. Read More>>
