Nuclear Powered Spaceflight
Advisor: Wei Ji, Ph.D.
Travel to other planets has up until recently only been possible in science fiction media; however, as technologies of the twenty-first century have improved, such a mission is now almost possible. This presentation will examine how different disciplines of engineering (aeronautical, nuclear, mechanical, and more) are needed to produce a complex product like a spacecraft.
Students will learn about the conservation of momentum, and nuclear fission.
