Just in case you're wondering I got this off the Starlink website....

ION PROPULSION SYSTEMS
Starlink satellites are equipped with efficient ion thrusters powered by krypton that enable the satellites to orbit raise, maneuver in space, and deorbit at the end of their useful life. Starlink is the first krypton propelled spacecraft ever flown.

Krypton thrusters are very fuel efficient but very low thrust. Much better bang for your buck to just mount a pair of SuperDracos for a real kick in the butt. Refueling could prove problematic but, after you lit those animals off once, you're not likely to ever want to experience it again...:oops:
