Description
Our project consists of continued design and optimization of a Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) engine for deep space manned missions to Mars and beyond. Our engine will focus on using a low-enriched uranium nitride fuel in a tungsten and molybdenum matrix to lower fuel costs and to increase thermal performance.
