Hi

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 decades down the road this looks like something our kids will see, but it is a fascinating cooncept all the same.
