Near Future Propulsion Mod contains electrostatic ion engines, plasma engines and VASIMR engines. There are currently 14 types of varying size and thrust. The function of the engines is quite simple – power them, provide the correct fuel and then profit. The two VASIMR engines however need more explaining; they start out at their lowest thrust and highest specific impulse. Use the slider in the VAB or in flight to increase thrust at the cost of specific impulse.
