Please go visit this awesome site about space travel. The table of contents is displayed below.

One of the highlights of the site is a page (Engine List) that includes a comprehensive list of engine/propulsion technologies with a technical table showing thrust, mass, efficiency and more … calculations.

The “Common Misconceptions” page dispels many popular myths about life in space, including things like: space vehicles won’t be designed like either ships or aircraft, there is no atomospheric friction or sound/noise in space, there won’t be windows on space vehicles, etc.
