 CVN-21 - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The CVN-21 uses the basic hull design of the Nimitz-class, though that is where the similarities will end.
CVN-21 will incorporate many new design features including a new nuclear reactor design (the A1B reactor), stealthier features to help reduce radar profile, electromagnetic catapults, advanced arresting gear, and reduced crewing requirements.
The U.S. Navy believes that with the addition of the most modern equipment and extensive use of automation they will be able to reduce the total cost of future aircraft carriers.

 WNA | Annual Symposium 2002 | From Option to Solution: The Nuclear Contribution to Global Sustainability Using the ...
Hydrogen as fuel in the future from both nuclear energy and renewables from electrolysis is explicitly mentioned in the Shell Report [Ref 5], which also considers qualitatively a range of social and economic energy futures.
With the additional nuclear deployment, scenario A1B has the atmospheric concentrations of CO rise until close to 2050 when the concentrations start to drop till the end of the century.
Typically, in reactor numbers, we find that in industrialized nations, a nominal programme of ACRs would stabilize power sector emissions in a country, and a doubling or trebling of that deployment would stabilize and reduce transportation emissions.

 CVN 21 aircraft carrier - single post for printer
But that's only a guess, and asumes that he'll be dead by 2013, when the carrier's scheduled to goe into service.
The hull will look like a Nimitz class carrier, but will differ in that it will have the Bechtel A1B reactor, a smaller radar and sonar cross section, and will use electromagnetic rather than steam catapults to launch its aircraft.

 IPCC Special Report on Emissions Scenarios
The SRES scenarios cover a wider range of energy structures than the previous IS92 scenario series, reflecting advances in knowledge on the uncertainty ranges of future fossil resource availability and technological change.
Scenarios B1, B2, A1T, and to some extent A1B follow a trend toward increasing shares of zero-carbon options in the long term.
A1G more or less follows an oil-gas isoshare line that perpetuates the current dominance of oil and gas in the global energy balance far into the 21st century.

 Ontario Peace Conference 1986
Part of Bertell's recent work has been to expose the fact that just prior to the Chernobyl accident there was a nuclear test in Nevada related to Star Wars (Strategic Defense Initiative) which vented and contributed to the high levels of radioactivity at that time.
Government officials in Ottawa neglected to test for the presence of Cesium-134, which would have indicated whether the fallout was from a reactor or primarily from the Nevada test explosion as Bertell speculates.
In between plenary sessions delegates participated in a number of campaign development and educational workshops on topics which included "Building your Group", "Computer Networking', "Dealing with the Cold War Mentality", "Nuclear Weapons Free Ontario", "Low-level Flight Testing and the Establishment of a NATO Base in Labrador and Québec", "Tritium Exports", "Uranium" and many more.

 NASA's FY 2004 Budget Request   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The fission reactors that will be developed by Project Prometheus would use uranium 235.
Since we have not designed the reactor and spacecraft yet, we are not in a position to state exactly how much fuel we will need.
For both types of system, radioisotope and fission reactor, the radioactive fuel is used to create heat that, in turn, is converted into electricity that can be used to provide power to the electric propulsion system and any other spacecraft electrical needs.

 World Affairs Board - american class warships
What made them so different and unique compared to the previous ship classes?
Probably the most profound example is USS Enterprise (CVN-65) due to her nuclear reactors.
Not the first ship to have them, but the first aircraft carrier.
