    General Question Specific Impulse (I_sp) for DG and Shuttle-A?

    It is very high, way above anything we have today, even ion engines. What you can try, as an experiment, is to load say 100 kg of propellant into the vessel, and, from a circular orbit, see how many m/s you get from it burning prograde or retrograde. Alternatively, Orbiter is now open-source...
