The Costa Rica-based Ad Astra rocket company has tested its new plasma rocket under continuous power for more than four hours. If the technology matures into a production engine, it could make for cheaper high-altitude orbits and faster interplanetary travel. A good thing!

I just have to say this:
If they can do all this with plasma, just imagine what they can do with WHOLE blood!
Dear Fellow Scientist,
NASA's rocket technology not for real space exploration but here is one.
Sir, don't be dismayed to see how little information there is on the internet. Despite that, I hope you totally understand my need for anonymity. Assuming that the technology is as effective as I say it is, releasing it to the public in all its splendor could make the world think that a) I am off my rocker, b) that I'm completely wrong or c) just some sci-fi aficionado who's gone a bit too far.
Sad state of affairs, but hey, that's the price of true innovation right?
