Wayne Smith is the original founder of the
pro-nuclear space movement. This program will focus on past and future efforts researching
space nuclear power including Project Orion, a 1960s program that
was cancelled before launching missions to Mars & Saturn, and
NASA's new program Project Prometheus, which is currently planned
to launch a mission to Jupiter's moons sometime late this decade.
(This interview has been complete, but we haven't yet produced the radio show due to lack of resources for this project. We hope to resume production & release this show before the end of the year.)
