While reading about aerospike engine here https://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/x-33/aero_faq.htm I read that (Question 11 in the FAQ) due to the slipstream turning into the nozzle region we observe a drop in nozzle efficiency. What does that mean in simple terms and do the simple bell nozzle also experiences this?
