Atoms for Space: Taking Nuclear Science to the Skies Tim Gregory, Nuclear Scientist

Radiation has breathed life into spacecraft for decades. From Moon landers to interstellar voyagers, many of our most beloved missions have been powered by atomic energy. Miniature fission reactors and advanced nuclear batteries will allow humanity to explore the rest of the solar system… and build habitats on the surfaces of other worlds.
