    Congratulations to Dr. Lafleur

    Canberra-based engineer Dr. Lafleur has helped develop a world-first propulsion system hoped to better allow satellites to dodge space junk.

    For decades, space agencies have been searching for an alternative propulsion system to electrical ion engines powered by xenon gas, which is expensive, heavy and rare.

    Working remotely for Paris-based company ThrustMe, principal engineer Trevor Lafleur helped to develop a propulsion system that uses iodine as a cheap and compact fuel.
