NASA Investigates Revolutionary Space Exploration Concepts - SpaceDaily  Left:  A Penn State artist's concept of an antimatter-powered Mars ship with equipment and crew landers at the right, and the engine, with magnetic nozzles, at left.  If the concepts prove feasible, space explorers may one day deploy superconducting cables that magnetically inflate to form the structure of a space telescope one kilometer across; launch a satellite with a magnetic scoop to mine the radiation belts surrounding Earth for antimatter fuel; or enjoy a feast from a food replicator that creates a variety of meals from a few common ingredients. A structural electrodynamic propulsion study has been funded with Tethers Unlimited, the space elevator company.
