Unformatted text preview: A Practical Application of “Induced Forces”: Electrodynamic Tethers IEEE Spectrum July 2000 Volume 37 Number 7 [1] The newly revived Mir may soon sport an orbit-lifting electrodynamie tether, visible here as a thin white line extending from the station's Kvant 2 module. The 10— km—long wire, which will generate thrust by interacting with Earth's magnetic field is set to be deployed later this year. llatmnllua thwnmnl In. thP lam-r run Mum _ , Ihiounh we Emthk I'I'JJIK-l < 1m”.
