thruster is very similar in operation to most chemical rockets and jet
engines, so before discussing arcjets specifically let's look at the

general category includes thrusters that operate by
generating hot gasses at high pressure and then allowing them to expand
in a nozzle, creating thrust.

More information to come when I start designing the gas supply.
