A new hot way to get into orbit!
This is a small engine mod that adds nuclear turbine aircraft engines based off of this concept, Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion, Project Pluto and the similar Soviet program Tupolev Tu-95LAL, also with a little influence from the Choujikuu Yousai Macross anime series and sequels to give two of the engines space capability.
The concept behind the engine is that thermal energy is transferred through a heat exchanger into the "can" (combustion section of a turbine) instead of using combustion to rapidly heat up gasses to turn the turbine and provide thrust.
Four Engines: M.A.S.A.M.U.N.E., Back Draft, Fire Storm, and Fire Whirl.
