Abstract:

An extension of the experimental ablation study, currently being conducted by the experimental group of the Orion Project, can be accomplished by the addition of radioactive tracers into the material of the ablation sample. The existing expanded plasma and shock apparatus would require only minor modification moreover, the current program could be continued and conducted simultaneously with the proposed tracer program.
