Launch Pad Explosion
Had an early call from RT about doing an interview after the launch pad explosion this morning at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
I made sure to get into the interview the sometimes forgotten issue of launching nuclear devices from the space center....rockets blow up from time to time so we must not discount the dangers about plans to launch nuclear powered space missions in years to come. The nuclear industry sees space as a new market for nuclear powered mining colonies on the Moon, Mars and other celestial bodies.
Nuclear rockets, giving heavy lift capability, would be integral for these mining missions. The madness continues.......
