Saturday Morning Physics | Opening Up the Solar System and Beyond: The Promise of Space Nuclear Power and Propulsion

John Foster, Professor (U-M Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences)
Saturday, September 22, 2018
10:30-11:30 AM
170 & 182 Weiser Hall Map
Part of the 50th Anniversary Live Presentation of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey
Co-Presentation with: UMS and the College of Engineering
We survey propulsion technologies that can enable reduced trip times for robotic and human missions alike beyond Mars, opening up the full solar system to in depth exploration and eventual colonization. Enabling these advances is the utilization of the power of the nucleus-nuclear energy.
