USA Leads Charge On Small Modular Reactors With NuScale Design Ready For Construction

When the new generation of massive transport rockets comes into operation, humanity will want to have new, much bigger outposts in space. Some might soon go as far as Mars and further and they will need a lot of energy. So much so that solar panels won’t be efficient anymore. But such as small modular reactor could be. Imagine a waystation in orbit that has enough energy to do all stuff we need including keeping fuel liquid and powering an Ion drive or a reactor on the Moon that can synthesize fuel out of the lunar regolith. If we are to become multi-planet – we will need compact and reliable power.
