The first commercial nuclear reactor in the United States, Shippingport, was derived from a reactor originally designed for a cancelled nuclear powered aircraft carrier. I haven't been able to find any information on this aircraft carrier, and I don't think the Shippingport reactor is related to...
I attach a file with a non-technical summary of research done at the University of Florida on a gas/vapor core nuclear reactor with MHD conversion for space propulsion. A liquid cooled version with MHD propulsion for navy operations is also presented.
If Generation IV reactors are 2...
USAF interplanetary spacecraft concept model using Space Power Unit Reactor (SPUR) found on EBay.
Description from EBay:
I am looking for information on the planned composition of USN carrier battle groups, and the wider USN, in the early 1960's with particular reference to nuclear powered surface ships. As I understand it, it was initially planned to construct 6 Enterprise class ships and 10 Long Beach class...
