NASA Successfully Tests Nuclear Reactor to Power Future Missions

View

Most space missions rely on solar power, but a few that demand maximum reliability have a thermal nuclear power system. Human spaceflight and colonization efforts will require a lot of power that works no matter the conditions. That’s why NASA has been developing small-scale nuclear fission reactors. The space agency now reports that the delightfully named KRUSTY (Kilopower Reactor Using Stirling Technology) reactor has passed a vital ground test. This could be the first prototype of reactors that power future human settlements on the moon or Mars.
