Since there are a ton of these, let's just have a thread for discussing all the NIAC phase II projects.

 

  • Kilometer Space Telescope (NBF, NASA)
  • Mach Drive (NBF, NASA, FT)
  • Electric Propulsion (NBF, NASA)
  • Pulsed Fission-Fusion (NBF, NASA) (AKA FUCKIN' ORION DRIVES!)

Can we rename this thread slightly?

 

How about "NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts phase II projects"

 

or just "NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts"?
