: Nuclear pulse propulsion, He3Abstract:
It is shown that the efficiency (D-He3) of burning of the D-He3 fuel in space propulsion system can be about 0.2 and higher when the fuel is compressed to a rather modest density of about 300 g/cm3 or even less. It is also shown that the requirements on (D-He3) and can be the factors limiting the number of the D-He3 microexplosions ignited by or with the use of microexplosions.
