Project Orion

Author George Dyson spins the story of Project Orion, a massive, nuclear-powered spacecraft that could have taken us to Saturn in five years. His insiderís perspective and a secret cache of documents bring an Atomic Age dream to life.

Excerpt from BBC's "To Mars by A-Bomb"
YouTube - Project Orion

In 1957 man created a nuclear powerered space craft. In 1963 Project Orion was finished and classified for militardy purposes.

The militards are as lame as it gets.




TREATY BANNING NUCLEAR WEAPON TESTS IN THE ATMOSPHERE, IN OUTER SPACE AND UNDER WATER (1963)


ENTERED INTO FORCE: 10 Oct 1963

The Governments of the United States of America, the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics, hereinafter referred to as the "Original Parties",

Proclaiming as their principal aim the speediest possible achievement of
an agreement on general and complete disarmament under strict
international control in accordance with the objectives of the United
Nations which would put an end to the armaments race and eliminate the
incentive to the production and testing of all kinds of weapons,
including nuclear weapons,

Seeking to achieve the discontinuance of all test explosions of nuclear
weapons for all time, determined to continue negotiations to this end,
and desiring to put an end to the contamination of man's environment by
radioactive substances....

The Case for Antigravity - 1:56:18 - Sep 30, 2006

As you can see, at least some material is not available anymore. BBC is obviously going to sit on: "To Mars by A-Bomb" until the tape rots. The general idea all science is always preserved is just not reflected on the facts.

Project Orion: The True Story of the Atomic Spaceship

George Dyson - In 1957, a small group of scientists, supported by the U.S. government, launched an attempt to build a four-thousand-ton spaceship propelled by nuclear bombs. The initial plan called for missions to Mars by 1965 and Saturn by 1970. After seven years of work, political obstacles brought the effort to a halt. The Orion team, led by the American bomb-designer Theodore B. Taylor, included the physicist Freeman Dyson, whose son George was five years old when the existence of the project was first announced. In Project Orion, George Dyson has synthesized hundreds of hours of interviews and thousands of pages of newly excavated documents, still only partially declassified, to piece together one of the most tantalizing "what if" stories of the twentieth century. George Dysongrew up immersed in the world of groundbreaking science. His previous books include the acclaimedDarwin Among the Machines. He and his father, Freeman Dyson, are also the subjects of Kenneth Brower's classic profileThe Starship and the Canoe. Dyson lives in Washington State.

The project commenced during the golden age of support for U.S. scientific research, but the team struggled to find ongoing funding. Civilian NASA found Orion unpalatable because of its inextricable link with nuclear weapons, while the military regarded the team's ultimate goalexploration of the solar systemas peripheral to their own space research program.
