Recently, NASA was in news as its chief stated that nuclear propulsion can be “game-changer” for space exploration. Seemingly, mankind’s next giant step can enable the next-generation nuclear tech, Jim Bridenstine—NASA’s Administrator—said. While speaking at the sixth meeting of the NSC (National Space Council), the NASA chief praised the prospect of nuclear thermal propulsion, which will utilize the heat released by fission reactions to speed up propellants like hydrogen to tremendous speeds.
