Until now, many unmanned probes have been launched and manned lunar explorations have been carried out using chemical rockets. However, due to the slow speed of chemical rockets, manned planetary exploration is limited to Mars at most, and manned planetary exploration beyond Mars is impossible. Manned planetary exploration cannot be realized by the present rocket method. From the point of view of propulsion theory, a propulsion system different from that of chemical rockets is required. This paper introduces a propulsion system that far surpasses the performance of chemical rockets, obtained from the nature of the field as a continuum of vacuum space. It is a propulsion system that is indispensable for humankind to advance into planet.
