Catalogue Note

The Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application—or NERVA, is it came to be known— was a U.S. nuclear thermal rocket engine development program that ran for two decades. The project was a joint effort between the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and NASA, and managed by the Space Nuclear Propulsion Office.
