China plans to build a base on the moon by 2028

While the United States has finally begun the first phase of the Artemis program, which is expected to return astronauts to the moon in 2025, China, according to recent data, plans to build a base on the moon at almost the same time.
As part of the current plans of the Celestial Empire, they want to create a base on our natural satellite by 2028. But this means that it will have to start building much earlier.
The station will be powered by a nuclear reactor.

 

We are currently developing a new system that uses nuclear energy to meet the long-term energy needs of the lunar station.

What will be the Chinese lunar base is not yet clear, but no one has yet said that it will be an object intended for any long stay of people there. It is known that we are talking about a landing module, a kind of bunker, a lunar rover and an orbital station.
Previously, there was also information that the power of a nuclear installation to power such a base could reach 1 MW.
Earlier, the US also talked about placing a nuclear installation on the moon by 2030. Thus, taking into account the accelerating race for the exploration of the Moon, in 10 years there really can be two bases there, albeit not yet designed for long-term residence of astronauts.
