While the plasma thruster has a fraction of the power of the rockets that launch the space shuttle, it uses far less fuel and gets more thrust as a ratio of the fuel it burns, making it ideal for interplanetary missions.

"The Americans say they want to send men to Mars this is the technology to take them there," said the HDLT's inventor Dr Christine Charles.

"This thruster gives Australia a fantastic opportunity to be part of the international space race."
