NASA decided to switch to a safer, more powerful and fuel. This should speed up the process of preparation of carrier rockets and make space launches more efficient.

According to Engadget, the fuel in most modern rockets are based on the hydrazine is a very toxic liquid. Consequently, because of the increased level of risk engineers spend more time on preparing the missiles for launch and their fuelling.

The advantages of the new fuel. A safer substitute can be a hydroxylamine nitrate, which is ignited by the oxidizer. It is non-toxic. Moreover, such fuel more efficiently than hydrazine and can improve the performance of the missiles by 50%.

It is very helpful to the Agency in missions to colonize the moon, because the missiles will be able to transport a payload over large distances and spend less fuel.
