This new artificial limb is powered by rocket fuel. A team of mechanical engineers has created an prosthetic leg that is powered by a special type of liquid fuel called a monopropellant — the same kind of fuel that gives rockets their thrust. The new device could usher in the next generation of prosthetics — powerful and light-weight artificial limbs that will look and function more like the real thing.
