Space travel propulsion is here #technology #future #video

While Elon Musk is launching cars in to space, NASA remain focussed on the future of space travel.

NASA, working in partnership, have developed designs for a compact nuclear reactor that could provide power anywhere. “Kilopower,” which is a fission reactor, has recently been successfully tested to simulate flight and it could be used to power new habitats on other planets.

Kilopower’s compact size and robustness allows us to deliver multiple units on a single lander to the surface that provides tens of kilowatts of power

Steve Jurczyk, NASA

NASA are now focussed on how to scale this technology for flight and future out of this world exploration!
