IAP 2003 Activity

Space Nuclear Power - The Only Way to Get to Mars and Back
Andrew Kadak, Marc Berte
Tue Jan 21, 01-05:00pm, 4-370

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Single session event

This seminar will feature the crucial role that nuclear power must play if there is to be a manned Mars mission. We'll explore not only the various propulsion options by NASA mission planners, but also the need for an energy-producing nuclear plant for the far reaches of space in order to provide electricity and fuel for the return trip.
