I agree, another aspect this symposium will certainly have to tackle is that we can't just rely on ideas that may be technologically sound but pragmagically inviable. A pulsed nuclear propulsion system would require too many nuclear detonations to ever work, unfortunately, unless somehow the political climate about it were to change drastically or some powerful and influential politician were to get it into his head to make it possible..
