NASA spacecraft to use ‘green’ fuel for the first time

NASA has said it will test a “rosé-coloured” non-toxic ‘green’ fuel and a compatible propulsion system in space for the first time with its Green Propellant Infusion Mission (GPIM) spacecraft. The spacecraft is set to launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket later this month. NASA added that apart from being safer, the fuel offers about 50% better performance too.
