Apparently the Parker Solar Probe will reach 190 km/s during its flight. Starting to edge toward TN speeds :)

True. I think my quickest conventional engine was around 160kms. However, in Aurora I get this anywhere. The probe will only be so fast when it is close to the sun. When it leaves its closest point the sun will slow it down... . So in a way the conventional engine in Aurora is still "superior" :-D
