Yosef Razin, CEC Researcher, awarded Edison Prize for Emerging Technology by the New Jersey Research and Development Council

Next month, Yosef and his co-inventors will be receiving the 2020 Thomas Edison Patent Award for Emerging Technology from the New Jersey Research & Development Council for their invention of a compact rocket engine thruster propelled by a small fusion reactor.  This patent demonstrated how a compact fusion reactor, called the Direct Fusion Drive (DFD), could be built and run successfully as both a power and direct propulsion system that would enable faster, cleaner, and more fuel effeceint missions throughout our solar system.
