Boswell Technologies

The Boswell Technologies Endowment aids postgraduate students studying Space Plasma, Astronomy or Astrophysics.

Our Interests


 “Space is for everybody. It’s not just for a few people in science or math, or for a select group of astronauts. That’s our new frontier out there, and it’s everybody’s business to know about space.” – Christa McAuliffe


There are various types of space thrusters, each with its own advantages and limitations. Some common types include chemical rockets, ion thrusters, and plasma thrusters.


solar energy

Solar energy refers to the energy derived from the sun’s radiation. It is a renewable source of energy that can be harnessed through various technologies such as solar panels or solar thermal systems.


About us

We are a group of engineers/scientists who design, build and commercialise systems that must work reliably and autonomously. Collaborative engagement forms the basis of our philosophy for working with people from all walks of life.


Although it is challenging, the mindset of having to survive without recourse to anything except the local environs sharpens the senses and stimulates the imagination. Designing and building a habitat on the Moon or Mars has much in common with dealing with systems that operate in very remote and hostile environments on the earth –  there is no escape. We enjoy working with people who want a clean water supply in the outback or on Mars, we can provide the expertise and experience to achieve these goals that are simply posed but challenging to fulfil.


We enjoy our projects and the environment of mutual respect and robust debate that allows the imaginative idea to be transformed into an effective solution to a challenging problem. Small, malleable, competent groups of a dozen or so effective collaborators are far more successful than large bureaucratically encumbered organisations. Risks can be transformed into challenges and failures into blessings in disguise.

Our projects

Bogong space 2

bogong thruster

We have developed a new thruster that does not use plasma, but just hot naphthalene as the propellant.

We call it Bogong, and it will launch into space in mid-2022.

Lunar habitat simulation

There is a lot of talk about setting up colonies on the Moon and heading to Mars. To avoid accidents and incidents, we are setting up a new testing facility for moon habitation here on Earth.

Electrothermal plasma thruster

We have developed a new type of thruster that is designed to be used on micro-satellites such as CubeSats and can use a variety of propellants.

water drop

Sabatier Process

The Sabatier reaction produces water (hydrogen and oxygen) and methane through a reaction of hydrogen with carbon dioxide. It’s vital for life support systems in space.

Earth to Moon to Mars (EM2)

There are many serious problems with living on the moon or another planet. We are building a dome that mimics the conditions on the moon to test new technologies and ideas.

Solar panels & batteries

Space is no easy place to live, and generating energy is not as simple as popping a solar panel on the roof. How can we generate energy efficiently, and how can we use that back on Earth?
