Nuclear Series: Fast Nuclear Thermal Rockets

Webinar Details:

This presentation will cover the topic of using hydrogen reaction mass derived from the Moon, reaching asteroids in 3 months, and harvesting platinum for another trillion-dollar market.

Guest:

Dr. Peter Schubert is a Professor of electrical and computer engineering and the Director of the Richard G. Lugar Center for Renewable Energy (LCRE) at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).

Dr. Schubert holds 43 US patents, is the author of over 100 technical publications and is the principal investigator on research projects from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Department of Energy (DOE), the US Department of Defense (DOD), the National Science Foundation (NSF) and NASA, all related to renewable energy, energy harvesting, and sustainability.

A key aspect of Dr. Schubert’s work – and the primary mission of LCRE – is to support and produce interdisciplinary research for the purposes of promoting renewable energy solutions and sustainable energy applications.

 Outside of LCRE at IUPUI, Dr. Schubert is an instructor with the Society of Automotive Engineers, the global leader in technical learning for the mobility industry, and has taught over 1,000 engineers from 17 countries in systems engineering and mechatronics system design. He has served as a technical fellow for Delphi Electronics and as a space, energy, and education research consultant for Packer Engineering, Inc., becoming recognized as a technology leader in multiple disciplines and an expert in areas such as renewable energy, fuel cells, environmental engineering, and sustainability.

His work within and beyond the academy demonstrates his emphasis on translating research into practice so to positively impact lives and communities, a quality that recently earned him IUPUI’s Bantz-Petronio Translating Research into Practice Faculty Award (the “TRIP Award”).

Date:

The event will be held in presence at Bovisa Campus room B2.2.5 (B2) on March 25th at 6:00 pm CET.
