Rolls-Royce Nuclear Micro-Reactor Moon
Rolls-Royce has partnered with the UK Space Agency to develop a modular nuclear micro-reactor power source for future astronauts on the Moon. Smaller and lighter than traditional power systems, this micro-reactor would allow for continuous power regardless of location, available sunlight, and other environmental conditions.

On the Moon, this micro-reactor would enable future astronauts, rovers and experiments to communicate and share large amounts of data across the lunar surface. Potential future applications for Rolls-Royce’s Micro-Reactor technology include support for commercial and defense use cases, in addition to those in space. The goal is to eventually create a world-leading power and propulsion capability for multiple markets and operator needs, alongside a clean, green as well as a long-term power source.
