    UK to build nuclear reactor on moon with carmaker

    March 24, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The race to harness the moon's resources had been paused since the end of the cold war, but recently the world has its eyes on the sky. One of the countries to announce resources for lunar exploration was the United Kingdom, which also intends to build a nuclear reactor on the site.

      The company that will do the construction is car and engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce, which has secured a stake in the nearly 3 billion euro project to build a nuclear microreactor.

      The British manufacturer hopes to complete its first unit still on earth in the early 2030s and increase to ten by 2035, with four sites in the UK already booked. Once up and running, each reactor is expected to produce more than 400 megawatts of electricity, enough to power at least 400,000 homes for a month.
