Question: Hi charlie! Could this rocket blow up and possibly destroy the earth?

  1. hi victor again!
    No it couldn’t!! The thrust from the rocket is very small so is of no danger. And its not a chemical rocket – it doesn’t burn things to make thrust – so it doesn’t have a hot exhaust. It expels ions to gently push the spacecraft along – an ion thruster! The fuel we use is not explosive – thankfully!
