The second factor is the rate at which mass is ejected from the rocket. The book is “Jet, Rocket, Nuclear, Ion and Electric Propulsion: Theory and Design” edited and authored by W. H. T. Loh of the North American Rockwell Corporation in Downey, California. Mr. Loh was the manager of Science and Technology at the Rockwell Space Division.

      The story of the nuclear rocket is long and wandering. The book is comprehensive and very interesting. This book details key people, hardware and /5. Enabling quick, safe and reliable in-space transportation for deep space missions. Aerojet Rocketdyne is developing nuclear thermal propulsion (NTP) engine system technologies that will provide quick, safe and reliable in-space transportation to support a variety .

    Nuclear propulsion includes a wide variety of propulsion methods that use some form of nuclear reaction as their primary power source. The idea of using nuclear material for propulsion dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. In it was hypothesized that radioactive material, radium, might be a suitable fuel for engines to propel cars and boats.   Nuclear rockets could open up solar system and help settle space. And NASA is interested. A four-month journey to Mars? NASA is spending money on nuclear rockets Author: Glenn Harlan Reynolds.

Early developments and Project Rover, Project Pluto, and the NERVA (Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application) Program are detailed.

Specific impulse, a measure of rocket performance, was more than twice that of chemical rockets. Ground testing and technology development has been done on several concepts described in this book.

However, though there appear to be no technical barriers to the development of a successful nuclear rocket, no nuclear rockets have been flown in : Polaris Books. A nuclear thermal rocket (NTR) is a type of thermal rocket where the heat from a nuclear reaction, often nuclear fission, replaces the chemical energy of the propellants in a chemical rocket.

In an NTR, a working fluid, usually liquid hydrogen, is heated to a high temperature in a nuclear reactor and then expands through a rocket nozzle to create thrust. Nuclear Rockets - High Performance Propulsion for Mars | | download | B–OK.
