Project Orion in Science Fiction

Project Orion is one of the great might-have-beens of the space age, and it is therefore no surprise to see that it features in many science fiction and alternate history stories. Here are some videos/movies/TV programs featuring Orion
  • In early versions of the script for film, 2001 - A Space Odyssey, the spaceship Discovery was powered by atomic bombs like Project Orion. This idea was not depicted in the movie because of the difficulty of filming it, and because Stanley Kubrick was tired with nuclear weapons after making Doctor Strangelove.
