After contacting manufacturers about the engines and thrusters we chose last semester, we found out that they were no longer in production.
This past week we received consultation from NASA on possible engines and thrusters that are available and are possible candidates for our MPS and RCS designs.
We are now analyzing the R40 by Marquardt for the main engine of the MPS. This analyzation includes fuel requirements, burn times, power and thermal requirements.

Next: Continue iteration of the R40 engine.
Fuel Requirements and burn times for this engine.

Mass: 820
Power: ?
