The world’s most powerful countries are competing for space. In this regard, the US space agency NASA has taken an important and very serious decision.
The United States has asked NASA to set up nuclear power plants on the Moon and Mars. According to this, NASA is preparing to set up a nuclear power plant on the moon within the next 10 years.
NASA, in collaboration with the US Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory, is preparing to set up a nuclear power plant on the Moon. This project is called Fission Surface Power Project.
According to the project’s head Sebastian Corbiciero, the establishment of a reliable and high-energy plant on the Moon is an important step that will play an important role in the exploration of possibilities in space.
According to him, this target will be achieved soon. NASA aims to build a nuclear power plant on Earth and send it to the Moon.
The United States is conducting extensive research into solar and energy sources dependent on solar power. If NASA is successful in setting up a nuclear power plant on the moon, then it will also build a nuclear power plant on Mars.
Earlier, NASA had landed humans on the moon for the first time through its Apollo mission. However, the astronauts did not stay on the moon for long.
NASA is now planning to send astronauts to the Moon for a long period of time to perform various tasks and tests. This requires a large source of energy. NASA believes that energy needs will be met through nuclear power plants.
According to NASA, such an arrangement will provide energy to human settlements on the Moon for a long time. According to Jim Reuter, who works in NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate, the nuclear power plant will benefit planners of electrical architecture for the Moon and Mars.
For the past few years, NASA has been exploring the possibility of nuclear fission on the moon. The project, named Kilopower, is jointly researched by NASA and the US Department of Energy.
