Great. The Space program really needs to get away from the solid fuels.

I wonder if this had anything to do NASA cancelling that next generation Space Shuttle.

Not exactly a TIE Fighter yet. I have a feeling Star Wars would have been very boring if we had to wait for the ion engines to ramp up for 2 weeks before they got going. :D
