Nuclear thermal rocket Main article: Nuclear thermal rocket Bimodal Nuclear Thermal Rockets – conduct nuclear fission reactions similar to those employed at nuclear power plants including submarines. The energy is used to heat the liquid hydrogen propellant. The vehicle depicted is the “Copernicus” an upper stage assembly being designed for the Space Launch System (2010).Bimodal Nuclear Thermal Rockets conduct nuclear fission reactions similar to those safely employed at nuclear power plants including submarines. The energy is used to heat the liquid hydrogen propellant. Advocates of nuclear-powered spacecraft point out that at the time of launch, there is almost no radiation released from the nuclear reactors. The nuclear-powered rockets are not used to lift off the Earth. Nuclear thermal rockets can provide great performance advantages compared to chemical propulsion systems. Nuclear power sources could also be used to provide the spacecraft with electrical power for operations and scientific instrumentation.[6]NE

The TOURING THE UNIVERSE THROUGH BINOCULARS STAR ATLAS (TUBA, for short) is the only star atlas designed specifically for use with binoculars.  Conceived by Dean Williams of Cabot, Arkansas, the atlas plots all of the objects listed in the book plus shows stars to 11th magnitude, a reasonable limit for giant binoculars.  (Of course, you can adjust that to show fewer stars, as desired.)  It does NOT show deep-sky objects that require a telescope to be seen, unlike some other so-called binocular star atlases.
