London, England — Professor Rahman, the creator of the Universe Internet, which is focused on space nuclear technology, said on May 3 that he will lead a new endeavor to commercialize nuclear fusion rocket propulsion.
Unicorp Space, an early-stage space company, aspires to expand the space industry beyond Low Earth Orbit by developing and deploying the first commercially usable nuclear fusion rocket (NFR) engine. Professor Rahman will lead a team that will combine years of NFR design progress with current breakthroughs in computers, manufacturing, and robotics.
Unicorp Space Ltd is a nuclear fusion firm established in the United Kingdom. He is actively working on the rocket design. This engine might be used for a variety of purposes, including sending persons and payloads into space, but the company’s ultimate objective is to construct a hyper-speed propulsion engine that employs nuclear fusion technology for interplanetary travel, with the prototype due in 2025. And if that dream comes true, it may halve the time it takes to go to Mars.
“Through the development and deployment of the first commercially viable nuclear fusion rocket engine, Unicorp Space Limited wants to expedite the spread of the space industry beyond low Earth orbit,” according to the initiative’s website.
Unicorp Space Limited, he explained, “aims to expedite the spread of the space industry beyond low Earth orbit by developing and deploying the first commercially viable nuclear fusion rocket engine.”
“Produce a safe and dependable in-space nuclear propulsion capability with performance qualities beyond anything available now,” he added, citing improvements in the space and industrial industries.
Because of the vast distances required in space operations beyond Earth’s orbit, present propulsion technologies are either ineffective or very sluggish, according to Rahman. Nuclear fusion rockets might offer fast travel times and low fuel use.
The business is one of only a handful in the world attempting to create nuclear fusion-based hyper-speed propulsion engines. Unicorp Space is to recruit government and industry partners to pursue an on-orbit demonstration of a working nuclear fusion rocket engine within the next five years, according to the company. “We’re primarily focused on offering a commercial capacity, but we won’t rule out doing work for the federal government.”
He believes the technique might be utilized for orbital transfer and lunar access services, as well as by “anyone interested in getting their stuff to geosynchronous orbit or beyond fast and effectively.”
“We have $200 billion in signed investors and are trying to pull down cash right now,” said the CEO.
He believes that a commercial entry into the nuclear propulsion rocket market “may well be the stabilizing element that has been needed for a long time.” “To get this capacity to orbit, we need a strong, consistent push, and I think that enlisting the private sector’s help will eventually bring a nuclear thermal rocket to market.”
