A new Russian nuclear rocket will multiply the speed of movement through space: a flight round trip to Mars will take two to four months, while the current rocket requires a year and a half to two years to accomplish the same trip. With new ship, a flight round trip to Mars will take 2 to 4 months which is absolutely amazing...

The dream of Sergei Korolev, Wernher von Braun and their predecessors to design a powerful engine for long-term space flight missions may soon come true.

The Mstislav Keldysh Research Center in Moscow, has been working on developing a nuclear rockets propulsion system which will face new challenges of transport in outer space. The first tests are planned for 2018.

A new Russian nuclear rocket will multiply the speed of movement through space: a flight round trip to Mars will take two to four months, while the current rocket requires a year and a half to two years to accomplish the same trip.

"The issue is that chemical engines that are used today in the space industry have limitations in terms of specific impulse and, as a consequence, speed. It is simply impossible to accelerate above third gear space (equivalent to 16.6 km / s). With a nuclear rocket, it is possible to achieve much higher values ​​of momentum," says Keldysh center director, Anatoly Koroteiev.
