1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I have a question for homework which is. "Chemical rockets are unsuitable for travel beyond close planets. Describe a method of propulsion based on electromagnetic induction which could be used for long distance space travel beyond the nearest planets." 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution What im not 100% sure is, for this question do you think they are referring to the "Solar Sail" that uses a laser beam to some how propell it, or are they referring to a spacecraft that is nuclear powered?
