It is expected that this very reactor will become in the future a permanent source of electricity for a manned station on a natural satellite of the Earth. With its help, it is planned to ensure not only a stable stay of people on the moon, but also to help in the development of distant planets, for example, Mars.
NASA representatives said that it is planned to build a nuclear reactor on Earth. And in the future they want to deliver it to the moon for exploitation.
To date, there is not much information with details about the project. It is only known that the collection of proposals under this program will last until February 19, 2022. The construction of the energy system is planned to be completed by 2030.
