YIDDISH

Researchers from the Ben-Gurion University proposed a new technology allowing a spaceship to reach a record speed with the help of a thermonuclear reaction in a thin metallic pellicle of Americium-242m.

This approach, if realized, will reduce the time of the space travel from the Earth to Mars from 8-10 months to 2 weeks.
