  You think a _nuclear_ pulse engine and a pulsed jet-gas turbine are the
same idea? Sure they're both 'pulsed', but one works of micro-nuclear
detonations and one uses puffs of gas! (Note, the US military created a
pulse-thrust cruise missile based entirely on the famous V2. A matter of
fact, the guy who designed the navigation systems for it now works in my
research group. There are good reasons why the concept was abandoned forty
years ago.)
