NASA Eyes Nuclear Power for Moon Base


www.livescience.com

Nuclear power could make a comeback beyond Earth if NASA goes forward with a proposed a fission reactor in its future moon base.

maybe we'll get some pictures of this to debunk in the future and NASA will deny its existance

Are you saying that nasa is going to build a nuclear reactor on the moon or are they going to use the unreliable radioactive electricity generators which were used on pioneer and voyager that threw off heat from the decaying fuel to a thermocouple to generate electricity.

And if they are going to build a nuclear reactor on moon it would be impossible how would they transport all the concrete to the moon and most importantly the radioactive fuel.

Exactly! Either this idea in the pipeline is a few decades off or NASA seem to think they may have the necessary technology already to get the materials up there? Anyway i was interested in the comment....




Engineers envision a nuclear reactor buried under the surface of the moon so that lunar soil, known as regolith

"The problem with power on the moon is that, depending on where you're located, you may have 14 days of darkness,"


What a funny thing why would they create a base on the dark side of the moon, when they can get free sun powered solar energy at maximum efficiency and intensity on the surface of the moon on the bright side, and moreover the technology exists.

FFS have education standards dropped so low ??

the rotational period of the moon = 28days

this means that a point on the lunar equator experiences 14 days of ` day ` and 14 days of ` night `

the moon is tide locked - look it up
thats why you always see the same features

It seems with people finding discoveries such as this.

That nuclear power may become more readily available than once thought.
