Stage 1 - http://phys.org/news/2013-02-fujifilm-t ... erial.html

Layered around rocket motor body assembly providing
A-Low weight Heat sink
B-Extra electric power and lots of it.

How can this be directed into thrust with the least weight added?

MHD. Although I'm not sure how well an organic conductive polymer would hold up at rocket thrust chamber temps...

Also search the JP Aerospace blog, they've been working on MHD power generation from rocket exhaust. Put electrical power in and you have an MHD afterburner on your rocket.

Um... that web site strikes me as one put together by a teenage wannabe, not anyone who has actually built anything.
