    Title

    Joint Session on Nuclear Power and Propulsion Systems, and Propellantless Propulsion

    Description

    This session, organized jointly between the Space Power and the Space Propulsion Symposia, addresses all aspects related to nuclear power and propulsion systems for space applications. The session also addresses all types of propellantless propulsion including (but not limited to) solar sails, magnetic sails, laser propulsion, tethers, etc.
