NASA wants nuclear reactor on the Moon by 2030

NASA has chosen the 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

This is a large-scale project to put the first woman and first person of color on the Moon

A nuclear fission reactor harnesses the energy released from splitting apart atoms like uranium.

 NASA believes it will need 40 kilowatts of power for the first lunar inhabitants

"The Fission Surface Power project is a very achievable first step toward the United States establishing nuclear power on the Moon,"

NASA is also funding other initiatives aimed at helping future astronauts survive more than 200,000 miles away from Earth
