Aaron Harford - "Electric propulsion and the required generators"
Aaron Harford is from Los Angeles, California but studying and living in Kyiv, Ukraine. Interested in astronomy and spaceflight since youth, he went into a different field before returning to his first passion when the private space company movement was developing. An internship with a very small private company in Mojave, California led him to realize that even with a small team and relatively limited resources, actual hardware for spaceflight can be imagined, designed, built, and tested. His dissertation research focus is on electric thrusters and their necessary electret generators, which is an extremely under-examined field of technology. He is the founder of Novel Space Concepts LLC, a small startup which focuses on electric propulsion, space towers, and electret generators for particulate pollution & radiation shielding.
