Nuclear in Space Finally Here?

Interesting article. Apparently NASA has received funding for quite a few different “goodies”.

Quote from article:

“NASA nuclear propulsion: Provides $35 million for advancing the technologies for nuclear thermal propulsion to make space flight “significantly faster” than current propulsion options.

“The ongoing propulsion development work done at Marshall Space Flight Center will further NASA’s exploration goals by supporting efficient transport of cargo and science payloads, and reducing crews’ exposure to harmful space radiation and other effects of long-term space missions,” Shelby said.”
