The Deep Space 1 mission (DS1) uses a ion propulsion system (IPS) on the DS1 capsule. The IPS involves ionizing atoms of xenon, accelerating them through an electric field produced by electrified grids, and ejecting the ions into space behind the capsule. IPS Chamber of the DS1 Capsule Electrified grids Electron gun (produces highspeed electrons) • Xe •e– • Xe •e– • Xe Xe+ • Xe • •e– • Xe Positive grid Negative grid In the IPS chamber, high-speed electrons collide with xenon atoms. These collisions can ionize xenon atoms. The electric field...
