heck are attacking my time as attorney general. the thing they left out is the truth. the truth is crime actually went down during my time in office. that's why i've been endorsed by law enforcement across nevada. i'm proud of my record cracking down on meth, protecting seniors from scams, and holding banks accountable for defrauding homeowners. i'm catherine cortez masto. i approve this message because i've spent my career solving problems. isn't that what we need more of in washington? this is 8 news now good day)) ((kirsten joyce)) this sounds like the plot of a sci-fi movie. next year, a team of top scientists will hunker down inside a classified facility in the nevada desert so they can experiment with a piece of advanced technology. ((brian loftus)) >> the test will focus on a small nuclear reactor and if it
on mars. the i-team's george knapp was given the exclusive details. in the hit movie, the martian, stranded astronaut matt damon has one heck of a time surviving and getting around in the harsh environment of the red planet. scientists and engineers think that getting to mars, and establishing a base, will require a better power system than what was shown in the film. patrick mcclure/los alamos national lab: mars is in the air.....we we really want to make that happen in our lifetime. we think it would be a great contribution to humanity. like his other far-flung team members, los alamos nuclear reactor scientist patrick mcclure is bubbling with enthusiasm about the end uses for the small nuclear reactor his team will test in the nevada desert in 2017. the reactor is named kilopower. the experiment is dubbed krusty,
simpsons tv show. but the goals are all too serious. the experiment will take place in the device assembly facility, daf, a highly secure structure deep inside the nevada national security site. the krusty reactor will produce up to ten kilowatts of electricity, which may not sound like much on earth but could mean life or death out there. mcclure: so we can use it for deep space or the martian surface, and the idea is to build that reactor for future nasa missions. we have a power source thatn that's to the icy moons of jupiter and saturn, or something like encephalus or titan, or to actually provide power on mars, to make fuel, to make oxygen for a return trip. small nuclear reactors could power the habitats that form a permanent base on mars and charge up the rovers that could carry earthlings on
mike houts/nasa marshall space flight center there's no new physics required. no giant mysteries to solve. it's very do-able. mike houts is the nuclear research manager at nasa's marshall flight center, one of two nasa outfits involved in the krusty experiment. in addition to developing nuclear reactors as mobile power sources on the ground, he thinks the same technology could act like a turbo-charger for spacecraft bound for mars or beyond. mike houts: the idea behind nuclear thermopropulsion is to try and get the astronauts to mars very quickly. that of course reduces their radiation, exposure to microgravity, any of the other hazards associated with deep space travel. houts says the booster engine might need to run only two hours to achieve enough velocity for a quick trip to mars. the surface power systems could operate for years. the device for krusty, about the size of an oatmeal box, is being built at oakridge lab. the nevada members
fit. for one, there's no cost to build a new facility,. and two, the nevada test site is where nuclear rocket engines were successfully tested 50 years ago. the site the nerva project still stands. president kennedy championed the project and visited the site a year before he died. darwin morgan/dept. of energy: it could have happened. you could have nuclear powered rockets taking people to mars by now. that would be the reality of this. mike houts: definitely, in the 2030's, we will have the technology and the capability to go to mars. patrick mcclure: we like it. george knapp 8 news now. ((brian loftus)) >> the exact date for the experiment isn't set but we will keep you posted. on our website, we have more information about the krusty project, and a link to an i-team report about president kennedy's visit to the nerva project at the nevada test site./// ((kirsten joyce)) a group of valley students are getting some satisfaction this morning.
