we want to start a nuclear reactor on the moon

NASA’s manned mission to the Moon will be slightly delayed and will take place in 2025 at the earliest, which does not change the fact that Americans are already drawing plans for the permanent presence of their astronauts on the Silver Globe. And in the long run, also on Mars. Of course, a key element of such initiatives will be the sources of energy available to people living outside the Earthamong which nuclear energy can play a prominent role.

NASA adds that such a lunar nuclear generator will also help meet the agency’s other goal of designing a nuclear-powered engine, thanks to which the human journey to Mars would be much shorter than with the use of currently available drives.
