Actually I think them going back on his nerf is what helped, because at one point he was actually expected to aim and he was complete garbo.

Funny you say that because now I can't hit any target that's below me, I always seem to lead them too much.

so did nasa, they're reconsidering it now because it's still hella cheap and hella fast, the trouble would be getting the nukes up in space with them, getting it far enough away from the earth to be safe, and making the spaceship sturdy enough to survive repeated nukes to the ass

I thought they ended up not being allowed to actually test it because of laws on nuclear weapons (with which they intended to propel their shit)

Both of you are correct- there is an international treaty essentially saying "No nukes in space".

This was mainly done to prevent/discourage orbital nuclear strikes, but it also nixed NASA's idea.

On the topic of durability/transport/distance, here's the low-down.

Durability: It is, in fact, easier to withstand a nuclear blast in space- the thermal effects dissipate much quicker, therefore increasing the margin for error in the strike plate's makeup (the thing to catch the blast wave). With new advances in metallurgy, it's an (almost) simple thing to fix this issue, provided adequate funding and people to do the research.

Also, remember- "an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force." Constant thrust =/= constant velocity. You wouldn't need a great many warheads, just enough to achieve a certain speed and enough to decelerate at the end point of the journey, plus return trip if applicable.

Transport: Nukes going off with a slight bump or leaking radiation like a sieve is a movie thing, but even if they did, it's an easy fix. It would be a simple matter to ship the fissionable material separately, in a container purpose built for such a thing, while the device and conventional explosives required to achieve the reaction would be separate- no finished nuke to go boom.

Distance- Booster rockets, which then detach. Been done, would just need more/ more advanced ones.

The big issue here is the treaty- no nukes in space, period, full stop.

horror movies always seem the same. bunch of kids get lost somewhere where a killer is on the loose, then instead of being smart and sticking together to fight the killer, they split up and get killed one by one, and it's always either the black guy, or the funny guy that goes first, usually followed by the horny couple.
