MIT developed microthrusters is a good example.
JD Williams of Colorado State University, Fort Collins, was doing work on this technology as far back as 2005, and I met him 2009 at the SPESIF 2009 conference, and was impressed by what he was doing. Search Colorado State University, Fort Collins, for ‘ceramic thrusters’ to get more information.
My question, how come he did not get media attention then and now when MIT says the same thing 3 to 7 years later they get media attention?
Is the science writers’ community biased? Or is this an editorial problem?
