Abstract:

Calculations and analyses were performed to evaluate the radiological hazards associated with the use of a contained underground fission detonation for the propulsion of large space platforms. This investigation included a study of fission product release, neutron induced activity, ground water contamination, chemical reactions, decontamination and closure mechanisms. Analytical results, representing extreme conditions, were obtained for a defined reference system. The key to control of the environmental hazard in the GASP system is the closure mechanism - if operating properly, the radiological hazard is acceptable but upon failure, the hazard may be substantial.
