The FAQ's good reading. The spacecraft uses a hybrid motor not so they 
can throttle it (apparently it has two states, off and on) but because 
of the benevolent characteristics of the propellants (laughing gas and 
a composite).

How much more propellant mass do they need to go orbital with that kit?
