    Look I saw it on the side of a bus, therefore it must be true. Being pedantic I think the nuclear that they want to be free of is the type that gets thrown around by Skynet in the Terminator films.
    I'll be back if I find out more...hasta la vista

    Oh for sure the science all stacks up.

    Riding what is in effect a continuosly exploding atomic bomb could be interesting.

    Sitting atop a conventional chemical rocket is interesting. Would you like a trip on top of a Saturn V?

    From what I've read it could get a bit hairy.

    Oh, Scott Manley isn't bonkers, but Robert Zubrin might be.

    Interesting that New Zealand is happy to benefit from thermonuclear energy but won’t have nuclear fission powered vessels in its waters. I suppose 93,000,000 miles is the difference.

    I suspect that might be because NZ is sensible enough to acknowledge that Mother Nature has a better record at designing and implementing such things, than mankind has. ;)

    Show us a local source of fusion energy - and we might consider it.

    "Mother Nature's" record on caring for her creations is patchy at best - just ask the dinosaurs.

    Oh wait! You can't. :p

    That would be because it was in her plan. :p

    93,000,000 miles is local by cosmic standards

    Hmmm....... come to think of it, the sun is rather large, quite dangerous, and decidedly orange. ;)
