Even though the current classical methods of aerospace propulsion are much improved, some of the most modern methods have already been introduced, including propulsion with electric motors. Energy can be obtained from hydrogen burners, honeycomb burners to protect the combustion of hydrogen that burns 10 times faster than conventional fuels or alcohols. Hydrogen storage is also done in honeycomb cell reservoirs. Getting solar photovoltaic energy even during flight is not yet effective, but maybe proposed in the future for lighter and/or space vehicles. A great desire is to pour water into hydrogen and oxygen directly on the aircraft so that the stored fuel is actually water and the hydrogen used is extracted from the water. In this case, it is no longer necessary to store hydrogen. And other modern methods of energy propulsion and acquisition are briefly presented in the paper.
