Investigate the potential for the use of a nuclear fuel source for aircraft propulsion: If anybody have related document and ideas please post it
Are you referring to the program that eventually turned out the XB-70 Valkyrie?About fifty years ago there was a major research program to develop a nuclear powered airplane. The problem of shielding was too big and the program eventually died.
True, but they are Naval or Coast Guard I believe. I was referring to Civilian Maritime, rather than Naval vessels.Actually Russia still has something like half a dozen nuclear-powered icebreakers.
Is that a valid concern in your view, given the creation of a civilian maritime nuclear vessel?True, but they are Naval or Coast Guard I believe. I was referring to Civilian Maritime, rather than Naval vessels.
Naval vessels are normally capable of defending themselves against highjacking. It's a security, safety and proliferation concern.
