Does anyone know much about the Nuclear Shuttle? Is this also known as the Nuclear Orbit Transfer Stage? Was this expected to be powered by a NERVA nuclear rocket engine and placed into low Earth orbit by the Apollo INT 21 rocket? Or powered by NERVA 2? How many were they expecting to manufacture? Was the first flight of this vehicle expected in the timeframe of 1978-to-1981? Anyone have details?
