With all of our modern technology what's the fastest a rocket-ship could travel in outer space with a Nuclear Powered Engine?

Roughly about 1 to 25 percent of light speed. But that would quite a bit of time, due to slow acceleration of ion, or plasma type engines.

We don't have any "nuclear powered engine" for space travel

They are pushing for 250,000 MPH now, breaking 1 million MPH in a thousand years or so.
A new hall plasma drive might give us half that, coming soon to a spacecraft near you.

We have definately breached the speed of sound, but I'm not sure about the speed of light; though, we could not survive that
