Kilopower is a small, light-weight fission nuclear power system capable of providing up to 10 kilowatts of electrical power

Posted by in categories: engineering, nuclear energy, space

Kilopower is a small, light-weight fission nuclear power system capable of providing up to 10 kilowatts of electrical power — enough to run several average households continuously for at least 10 years.

Four Kilopower units would provide enough power to establish an outpost on the Moon or Mars.

    PNN (Non Newtonian Propulsion) will set them free

    Days ago I saw a long report on TV of an American and a Russian confined to SSI for about a year.
    A real nightmare for those poor wretches forced like mice to stay in those crouched tubulars.
    Apart from the torture training, the tragic comic part was the supplies.
    Well … the first shuttle departs (another cosmos) with supplies and in the automatic flight to the SSI and is lost due to telemetry defects .…. the second starts after several weeks (a rocket of musk!) And explodes after a while with all the tons of food for all the astronauts on board the SSI!
    .… after several weeks the third (Japanese I think) still starts and finally arrives .… IF YOU EAT FRESH FOOD FINALLY!
    Now at 50 years of age and passing by the fatal Apollo 11, missiles can keep astronauts in outposts only with something that orbits the Earth at about 400 Km high !!!!!
    And it can only maintain them with enormous difficulties. NOT SIMPLIFY IF THE PROPULSION IS ROCKET!
    Now imagine if you had to do the supply for a base 1000 times distant on the moon!
    Think of the number of kappelle with the supplies sent WITH A ROCKET PROPULSION with spaceships in automatic flight from Earth to the Moon!
    The most probable bad luck for the unfortunate ones on the moon permanently is death by starvation … apart from all the other accidents possible with missiles.
    I tell myself ! when they boast about returning to the Moon with a permanent base to be maintained with difficulty 1000 times greater than the SSI!
    There is nothing else to add to the evidence.

    We need kilopower reactors for PNN
