Space Nuclear Power & Propulsion
Joseph A. Sholtis, Jr., Lt. Col, USAF (Retired)

This presentation will address, using figures & photos, the notable 60-year history of the development & use of nuclear systems for power, heating, and propulsion in space – principally by the U.S., but also briefly by the former Soviet Union & Russia. U.S. space nuclear systems, as well as nuclear-powered/heated space missions flown, will be illustrated & described together with major discoveries gleaned, and future nuclear systems, along with their potential space applications, will be briefly depicted and addressed.
