“Scientists and engineers at Rolls-Royce are working on the Micro-Reactor programme to develop technology that will provide power needed for humans to live and work on the Moon. All space missions depend on a power source, to support systems for communications, life-support and science experiments. Nuclear power has the potential to dramatically increase the duration of future Lunar missions and their scientific value.”—”UK Space Agency backs Rolls-Royce nuclear power for Moon exploration. The UK Space Agency is backing research by Rolls-Royce into how nuclear power could be used to support a future Moon base for astronauts.”
What could possibly go wrong? Also, you want Space: 1999? This is how you get Space: 1999. Wait. Oh. Carry on.
