Petition to President Obama to develop nuclear thermal rocket
I recently wrote a petition to President Obama asking him to rapidly develop and deploy a nuclear thermal rocket (NTR) adaptable to manned and unmanned space missions.
The purpose is to jump start the U.S. space program and get kids interested in STEM careers (I have no personal stake whatsoever.) The petition appears on the White House’s We the People web page and is searchable under the keywords Innovation, Job Creation, and Science and Space Policy. Here is the link to the page:
If we reach 25,000 signatures, the White House will issue a public response to the petition. If you support this please sign the petition and pass it along to other like-minded individuals. I mean, that crazy Death Star petition actually got a response; hopefully, this will as well.
