Rolls-Royce unveils early-stage design for space nuclear reactor

Well we may as well use Uranium/Plutonium for something useful like space travel rather than nuclear bombs, etc. Russia, Chine and the USA has plenty of material that it would be good to get rid of. We are coming up to the limits using chemical propellants in rockets if we really do want to explore the solar system build an interplanetary economy and 'Ad astra'. Interesting development that will be well engineered by Rolls Royce.
