Astronomy: Mars, NASA, the US Navy and nuclear power

Hi, folks. I found this site via Google while looking for astronomy information. I subscribe to an e-mail list called In one of its more-recent editions, the list mentions that NASA is working with the Navy on nuclear propulsion. It goes on to say that the purpose of this is not for space travel, but I don't buy that for a second. Frankly, I believe there must be other intelligent life other than on earth, whether on Mars, elsewhere in our solar system, or on some exoplanet. I further believe that this administration, with its latest Rover missions to Mars and desire to return to the moon, is laying the groundwork for one or more staging sites for inter-planetary travel. Current conventional propultion systems aren't robust enough to make inter-planetary travel possible due to the vast distances between point of origin (the mon or Mars) and destination. Nuclear power, on the other hand, may indeed make such journeys possible. I, for one, will be eagerly watching this NASA-Navy partnership and its results.
