George Dyson | Make Vol. 13- 2008 | Pdf | 4 pgs | 1 mb
The first part of this article, "Project Orion: Saturn
by 1970," appeared in MAKE, Volume 12. It detailed
the development in the late 1950s of Project Orion,
an interplanetary spaceship to be powered by
nuclear bombs. This portion of the article covers
the envisioned deployment, closer to Earth, of a
Deep Space Force. Orion was never built. Adapted
from the book Project Orion, with new material.
