Space Nuclear Propulsion for Human Mars Exploration Public Briefing Webinar

Date: Monday, February 22, 2021

Location: US,

Safely transporting humans to and from Mars will require advances in spacecraft propulsion. Advanced nuclear propulsion systems, including Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) and Nuclear Electric Propulsion (NEP), have the potential to substantially reduce trip time and space radiation exposure for astronauts compared to fully non-nuclear approaches. However, more research is needed to bring these technologies to fruition. 

Join us for a public briefing webinar on a new National Academies' report, Space Nuclear Propulsion for Human Mars Exploration, on Monday, February 22, 2021 from 4:30-6:00pm ET. During the webinar, members of the committee will discuss the key findings and recommendations in the report and take questions from the audience.


  • Bobby Braun (co-chair), director for planetary science, Jet Propulsion Laboratory
  • Roger Myers (co-chair), owner, R. Meyers Consulting
