    核心提示:美国国家航空航天局(NASA)和美国国防高级研究计划局(DARPA)周二宣布,将合作在太空演示核热火箭发动机,这是向火星发射首批载人飞行任务的关键步骤。NASA和DARPA将合作实施敏捷近月运行演示火箭(DRACO)计划,根据NASA的说法,减少宇航员的风险。减少穿越时间是人类火星任务的关键组成部分,
    NASA and the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced Tuesday a collaboration to demonstrate a nuclear thermal rocket engine in space, the key steps for sending the first crewed missions to Mars.NASA and DARPA will partner on the Demonstration Rocket for Agile Cislunar Operations (DRACO) program.Using a nuclear thermal rocket allows for faster transit time, reducing risk for astronauts, according to NASA.Reducing transit time is a key component for human missions to Mars, as longer trips require more supplies and more robust systems."NASA will work with our long-term partner, DARPA, to develop and demonstrate advanced nuclear thermal propulsion technology as soon as 2027. With the help of this new technology, astronauts could journey to and from deep space faster than ever - a major capability to prepare for crewed missions to Mars," said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.NASA and the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced Tuesday a collaboration to demonstrate a nuclear thermal rocket engine in space, the key steps for sending the first crewed missions to Mars.NASA and DARPA will partner on the Demonstration Rocket for Agile Cislunar Operations (DRACO) program.Using a nuclear thermal rocket allows for faster transit time, reducing risk for astronauts, according to NASA.Reducing transit time is a key component for human missions to Mars, as longer trips require more supplies and more robust systems."NASA will work with our long-term partner, DARPA, to develop and demonstrate advanced nuclear thermal propulsion technology as soon as 2027.
