    Nuclear Propulsion vs. Chemical Propulsion I would like to start of by tell the chemical side. After that i will state the nuclear side. in conclusion I will put the two together to find out with is better is terms of cost, speed, weight, fuel, and degree of safety. Chemical Propulsion: Chemical propulsion is a . Principles of Nuclear Rocket Propulsion provides an understanding of the physical principles underlying the design and operation of nuclear fission-based rocket engines. While there are numerous texts available describing rocket engine theory and nuclear reactor theory, this is the first book available describing the integration of the two.

Nuclear Propulsion Nuclear energy remains an attractive potential means of propulsion for future spacecraft. When compared with conventional rocket engines, a nuclear propulsion system would in theory be less massive, and could provide sustained thrust with greater energy. Many believe nuclear-powered spacecraft can and should be built, but first many technical problems and other hurdles must.

Starting in the mids, the United States initiated a program to develop nuclear propulsion for spacecraft. The basic technology involved passing hydrogen through a very high temperature nuclear reactor, where it expanded and blasted out of the reactor at high velocity.

NASA is currently investigating nuclear thermal propulsion as an alternative to chemical propulsion for manned missions to the outer planets. There are a number of materials being considered for use as fuel elements. These materials include tricarbides and CERMETS such as W/UO2, Mo/UO2, W/UN and Mo/UN.

All of these materials require high temperature processing to achieve the required : Dennis S. Tucker.

Unlike conventional chemical rockets that produce their energy through combustion, the NTR derives its energy from fission of Uranium atoms contained within fuel elements that comprise the engine’s reactor by: Nuclear propulsion has emerged from the doldrums and is now seen as a definite possibility for outer solar system robotic exploration; and as enabling technology for a human mars expedition.

A new chapter on nuclear thermal propulsion has been added to reflect this revival of interest. Nuclear thermal propulsion (NTP) systems have been studied in both the USA and the former Soviet Union since the s for use in space science and exploration missions.

NTP uses nuclear fission to heat hydrogen to very high temperatures in a short amount of time so that the hydrogen can provide thrust as it accelerates through an engine : Douglas Burns, Stephen Johnson.Principles of Nuclear Rocket Propulsion provides an understanding of the physical principles underlying the design and operation of nuclear fission-based rocket engines.

As missions aim for targets farther out into the solar system, nuclear propulsion may offer the only viable technological option for extending the reach of exploration missions beyond Mars.
