How does propulsion work?
The attitude thrusters are small hydrazine thrusters. Hydrazine is a monopropellant and not much will be used per course correction, but as DS1 plans to correct course once per week, there will be ample use of it in small amounts. There are only 28 kg of hydrazine going into space on DS1, so the designers expect less than that to be used in the life of the mission.
