Atom Plane Makers Face KIHTOR'S NOTE: Here's the second 0 ( three dispatches un atomic pouer for aircraft, tasul on Information just made public by Ihe Air force and Ihe Atomic Energy Commission. By WOUfil.AS 1..1KSKN CINCINNATI, O. <NEA>—The basic research on an atomic en- Bine for an airplane has been completed, proving its feasibility and determining its general design. But there are still some vital, complex problems which have to be worked out before such an engine can be made that will actually put a plane into the air. Solving these problems, and then manufacturing the first nuclear aircraft engine. Is the big job which General Electric Co. lias no-v be)-im to tackle at Its huge Lockland jet engine planl in Cincinnati. An unusual statement of what Ihese immediate problems are, plus a new summary of what has been accomplished on the nuclear engine, has just been cleared for public release by the Atomic Energy Commission and the Air Force. The information has been compiled and presented'by Dr. Milr.s C. Leverett. a top atomic scientist who has been working on the project from the start. The reactor Itself, as Dr. Leverett. describes it, will be cylindrical. Throughout it Is distributed the actual fuel, uraniiini-235 or plutonium-239. The reactor also contains tubes or pipes for the rlow of the coolant which captures the reactor's heat, its usable form of energy. The reactor is controlled by absorbing rods. He explains: "The absorbing rods can be Inserted into the reactor or withdrawn from it. If, in (heir original position, the rods were absorbing ;hat number of neutrons which nade the reactor most critical 'that is, neither rising nor falling n power) then withdrawal of the rods will create a slight excess, of neutrons in the reactor and the power will begin to increase. "If it is desired to decrease the power of the reactor, inserting the rods more deeply than the orig- nal position will enable them to ibsorb more neutrons than before and the chain reaction will gradually die." Extremely exact control of the reactor action Ls vital, first because there is a remote possibility )f it becoming a low-grade atomic Minb, but more important because I could heat up and just melt or disintegrate. How to use the reactor heat to ly the plane is another item to be solved by GE engineers. One method being considered is o have propellers driven by turl bines, run by expanding through ! liem vapor such as steam, generated in the reactor. Another consideration is that :he reactor should directly or in- : lirectly take the place of the combustion chamber of a conventional turbo-jet engine. Variations of one of these two basic ideas for using the reactor heat will probably be used In the final nuclear engine. In addition to giving of/ heat the reactor also produces fatal gamma and beta rays. Shielding the crews from these rays is one of the bis; problems to be worked out, Dr Leverett explains: "The basic requirements' of the shield are dictated by the two basic radiations which it is desired to stop. The neutrons are j slowed down most effectively bv hslit atoms. For this reason an .effective shield will contain ]i«ht i atoms such as hydrogen. 1 "Gamma rays, on the other hand are degraded in energy and stopped best by heavy elements Mich .as lead. It is clear that a mixture arranged In the most strategic Feasible But Big Problems ; fashion will be desired. Solution of the problem is very complicated." Radiation damage other than to the human anatomy is another major headache of the project Some substances which miehi lie used as a coolant lose their ability to conduct heat under constant exposure to radiation, and some just decompose. Even outside the urea of tlic most intense radiation ordinary oil or grease becomes like tar or solidifies. Electrical insulation also breaks iloivn and disintegrates on long exposure to radiation. U is desirable to keep Die amount of fissionable fuel used in the tractor to a minimum for various obvious reasons, including the fact that the amount of uranium investment is not simply the amount of uranium carried aboard the aircraft, but also that which Li on the ground, in various stages of preparation for use. "Hie chain reaction will go on m Hie reactor only so long as there is present a certain minimum qnan- liiy of fissionable material called the critical mass. As soon as the reaction has consumed so much fissionable material that the mass drops very slightly below the critical mass, the chain reaction dies and cannot be started again without adding more fissionable material. This makes it necessary to remove the remaining fuel from the reactor purify u and prepare it for reuse "' Despite all the problems in connection with the nuclear aircraft engine. Dr. Leverett is convinced that the project is possible and will be a success. Austin Defends Jessup WASHINGTON, Oct 5 (/!>) _ Warren R. Austin, chief us delegate to the United Nations, yesterday described Ambassador Philip C Jessup a "powerful protagonist" of American interests with no trace of Communist sympathies. State Roods Audit Hears Completion LITTLE ROCK, Oct. 5. <&>— An audit of the Arkansas Highway Department should be finished in about 30 days, the Highway Audit Commission was told yesterday. ^_ P. G. Wilson, St. Louis accounk-W ant who Is directing (he commission's audit, authorized by the 1051 legislature, made a progress report to the commission. He said the writing: of a final report would be started soon. The commission voted unanimously to employ an attorney to help follow through with its investigation. Chairman R. H. Dickenhorst of Morrilton said that two commission members — Herbert Tlicmas of Fayettcville and V L. Tindall of Stuttgart-had been authorized to contact and hire counsel.
