The history of the development of the concept of the stationary plasma thruster is described. The data obtained indicate the possibility of creating extended (over a distance substantially longer than the Debye radius) electric fields in a fully ionized plasma with a relatively high electron temperature (Te>10 eV) and a conductivity close to the classical one. Based on these results, a number of fundamentally new plasma-dynamic systems were proposed; in particular, the principles of plasma… Expand
