Lately, i have been working on a school space report about space settlements. Transporting low mass payloads from the moon to the space settlement using a mass driver would be quite a affordable thought. To utilize this technology I need a deep understating about it, However I am unable to get a proper explanation about the machine's working mechanism. Can somebody help me out.
Apparently, I know that a mass driver uses electromagnetism to propel projectiles at extreme velocities. Currently I am referring the book : A design study - space settlements by Gerard.K O'Neill I have attached the link for the book below: The link
