Nuclear and electric rockets will play the roles of space-vehicle propulsion systems on top of titan and saturn carrier vehicles sponsored through study contracts by the air force office of scientific research, the office of naval research, the army ballistic missile agency, and the advanced research projects agency. Paul r shipps, manned planetary exploration capability using nuclear pulse propulsion (april 5, 1965) the space congress® proceedings paper 2 sives to propel space vehicles, however, was initially explored in the late 19^-0's to middle 1950's the externally research on orion has been sponsored by the. In this definitive study, j d hunley traces the program's development from goddard's early rockets (and the german v-2 missile) through the titan iva and the space shuttle, with a focus on space-launch vehicles since these rockets often evolved from early missiles, he pays considerable attention to missile technology,.
Shown here is a 13-kilowatt hall thruster being evaluated at nasa's glenn research center in cleveland the agency plans to use the advanced ion engines on a variety of missions, including its project to pluck a boulder off a near -earth asteroid and drag the piece into orbit around the moon there. Snc's dream chaser® spacecraft has been in development for more than 10 years, including six years as part of nasa's commercial crew program, and leverages more than 40 years of x-vehicle and nasa space shuttle heritage.
