A Mission to Mars would, obviously, be using a "potassium Rankine cycle power conversion system"

In case you were wondering what a "potassium Rankine cycle power conversion system" is check out ORNL's News Page which reports on recent developments in space based propulsion systems. One necessary component of the process would have to involve a nuclear reactor. Current treaty obligations may limit that possibility however, and so it will be interesting to see how the administration works to continue wit these scientific developments.
