Nuclear Saltwater rocket!


Recommended Posts

This short video details the idea of a nuclear saltwater rocket. This rocket is pretty much a continuous nuclear explosion propelling the space craft. The vid is short and informative not to mention wild! Should development of such an engine be pursued?

Great vid. Thanks for sharing.

Best bit- 12 mins in, talking about using reactor grade uranium to get to Alpha Centauri in 120 years. We could explore the whole solar system with an engine like that. 

Imagine waking up on a spaceship orbiting Jupiter, or Saturn, breathtaking. 🖖🏻
