Abstract

We all know that we have limited resource of petro-chemical fuels which will last for another 40-50 odd years. In comparison to petro-chemical fuels, nuclear fuels does not produce greenhouse gases, therefore it will not contribute to global warming. Substantial literature is available for alternative fuels, which includes hydrogen, bio fuels, electric propulsion, nuclear propulsion etc which are aiming at reducing the emissions and finding an alternative fuel for the future. Out of all the alternative source of propulsion, nuclear seems to be one of the practical ways to travel in future, as other sources would have some limitations which could not be resolved.
