Nasa Chose Three Companies
It will fund to develop a nuclear fission reactor ready to test on the Moon by the end of the decade.
This Power Plant Is Set to Be
A vital component of Artemis, the American space agency's most ambitious human spaceflight mission to date.
Nasa Envisions Astronauts Living
In a lunar base camp, bombing around in rovers, use Moon base as a launchpad to explore further out in space.
In Order for This
To happen, it'll need to figure out how to generate a decent amount of power somehow.
That Is Why Nasa Plans to Plant
A nuclear power source on the moon harnessing the energy for its future exploration from a Moon Base Camp.
Unlike Solar Panels, Fission Reactors
Can provide constant power and can be placed in dark cool corners of the lunar surface that receive little to no sunlight.
