More Project Pluto

I have posted several times about Project Pluto, the proposed nuclear ramjet cruise missile (click da' tag to see da' posts). This would have one nasty beast. Not only would it carry a nuclear payload, but the unshielded reactor would spread death along its path. It would also be loud enough to deafen people as it zipped by.  I first saw this in an EMRR design contest and in Jack Hagerty's SpaceShip Handbook (details in those earlier posts). As I mentioned before, I'm glad this thing only flew on the sport range!

Anyway, I spotted a TRF post that provided links to a 5-part YouTube video set:
