We did work with frozen free radical propellants in the fifties, but we used not only isotopes and xrays to make the radicals, but a high strength magnetic field to keep the radicals from recombining.
Once enough radicals were stored to melt the ice, a single cosmic ray could release the energy and it would anneal the entire piece of ice at once.
Which is why we can't use it for Orion.
