Abstract

Slush hydrogen is being considered as a fuel to replace normal-boiling-point liquid hydrogen because of its increased density and higher heat capacity. These features of slush hydrogen are, in many instances, advantageous to space programs using both chemical and nuclear engines [1]. Evaluation and characterization of slush hydrogen relative to normal-boiling-point liquid is required to determine the feasibility and merits of application to the space program.
