Nuclear Thermal Rocket
Subject: Physics | Topics:

Nuclear thermal rocket could be categorized by this construction of its reactor, which can range from a relatively straightforward solid reactor up to and including much more complicated but extremely effective reactor with the gas core. Like with all thermal skyrocket designs, the specific impulse produced is proportional towards the square root with the temperature to that this working fluid is heated, and hence essentially the most efficient designs require the best temperatures possible.
