Broadcast 316 (Special Edition)

Terry McNeeley and Bruce Behrhorst from www.nuclearspace.com were the guests for this Space Show program. We began the interview by having Terry tell us why he formed this website, what the purpose was, how it has been received so far, and the issues addressed on this site. We then began a rather detailed discussion about the types of nuclear propulsion for space, its use in a launch vehicle here on Earth versus using it for deeper space travel, going to and from the Moon, the risks, the advantages, the costs, and more.
