Nuclear and Future Flight Propulsion: Advanced Concepts in Rocket Propulsion, Nuclear Systems, Advanced Physics, and High-Energy Density Propellants
In This Section
This Nuclear and Future Flight Propulsion Webinar includes information on many different topics in advanced nuclear space propulsion. A short overview is provided on the wide breadth of advanced propulsion concepts, ranging from advanced chemical propulsion to solar sails, to aerocapture, to fission, fusion, and antimatter. The remaining discussions focused on vehicle system design, construction, and operation for missions throughout the Solar System. These presentations included Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators (RTGs), Nuclear thermal propulsion, nuclear electric propulsion, nuclear spacecraft options and configurations, and a basic overview of future nuclear power and propulsion systems.
