(Studio) United States gave up space-connected project with regard to atomic energy.
REPORTER: John Chancellor
(Jackass Flats, NV) In September, 1969, last atomic rocket engine test fired successfully. Found no use for engine. Dream was space ships with atomic engines. After 17 years $1 1/2 billion spent on useless project. [Project head Wilbur WALKER - believes wasteful to see project results. So many thought program worthwhile.] Desert will probably become nuclear dumping ground.
