Close-up detail of the microthrusters on LISA Pathfinder. There are three sets of four microthrusters. The image shows one set (with black caps) located on the spacecraft body. How small is the microthrust? The devices generate forces of 1–100 millionths of a Newton, much, much less than the weight of any housefly.
