16.522 Space Propulsion
Reviews rocket propulsion fundamentals. Discusses advanced concepts in rocket propulsion ranging from chemical engines to electrical engines. Topics include advanced mission analysis, physics and engineering of microthrusters, solid propellant rockets, electrothermal, electrostatic, and electromagnetic schemes for accelerating propellant. Some coverage is given of satellite power systems and their relation to propulsion systems. Laboratory work emphasizes design and characterization of electric propulsion engines.
This class has 16.50 as a prerequisite.
16.522 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by P. C. Lozano.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

ES.333 Production of Educational Videos: Skills for Communicating Academic and Professional Content
Develops communication and media skills through the production of educational videos. Students conceive, plan, script, shoot and edit video content to teach elements of MIT's curriculum. Each student creates a series of short videos that concisely explains and contextualizes specific problems of importance to disciplines at MIT, especially physics, math, chemistry, biology, or the humanities. The resulting videos present these problems through compelling use of illustrations, demonstrations, animations, and commentary, all from the student's perspective. Empowers students specifically to communicate their MIT expertise to communities of learners and generally to reach broad audiences with quality, accessible online content. Limited to 12; preference to students in ESG.
This class has no prerequisites.
Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 24-618.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a HASS E. This class counts as a CI-H.
