Rolls-Royce Receives UK Funding to Develop Nuclear Reactor for Moon Exploration

Rolls-Royce has received UK government funding to develop a nuclear reactor for a future moon base.
Scientists and engineers at the British company are working on the Micro-Reactor programme to develop technology that will provide power needed for humans to live and work on the moon.
The UK Space Agency on Friday announced £2.9 million ($3.5 million) of new funding for the project, which will deliver an initial demonstration of a UK lunar modular nuclear reactor.
This comes after a £249,000 study funded by the agency in 2022.
