people sometimes wonder if a nuclear powered car is the way of the future, considering the fact that nuclear power is much more efficient than fossil fuel and renewable, and cant cause pollution. But nuclear energy can cause problems as well, such as its waste. But Ford took the energy to the challenge and created the ford nucleon

The 1958 ford nucleon is a car that was purposed to ford by the military, but it never made it to testing. Since it was too expensive to make and there was fear of radiation poisoning. They tried making the reactor similar to a nuclear powered plant but that was scrapped due to the reactor dropping radiation waste.

This relates to engineering because engineers had make the shielding of the reactor to make sure no radiation spills out.
