Fueling the Future: The Quantum Leap of Nuclear Propulsion in Space Exploration

The Pioneering Days of Project Daedalus. The Pioneering Days of Project Daedalus Back in the 1970s, the ambitious Project Daedalus set out to propel a robotic spacecraft to Barnard's Star using nuclear explosions for propulsion. Despite facing setbacks, including the absence of planets around the target star, the project laid the groundwork for a revolutionary concept: nuclear propulsion..
