Russia wants to install a nuclear power plant on Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

China and Russia are making a big splash in space exploration, particularly Mars research. The Asian giant, in fact, already has an explorer vehicle traveling the Martian surface.

Now, the Russians have expressed their desire to build a nuclear power plant on the planet as a way to ensure the presence of humans there.

This innovative project has been proposed by a subsidiary of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. According to the state news agency Sputnik, the nuclear power plant would be destined to power a future Russian base on the Red Planet.

Those behind this idea hope to use the same technology destined for Zeus, an interplanetary space tug project, to also power the nuclear reactor on the Martian surface.

Russia’s Arsenals Design Bureau wants to use the tugboat to send an independent nuclear power plant to Mars and have a parachute landing system lower it to the surface.

In recent months, the Russian space agency has announced its ambitious plans for the next ten years, including the launch of a space station, manned and unmanned missions to the Moon and the construction of a joint lunar base. with China.

In the case of Zeus, the idea is that it uses a nuclear-powered electric propulsion system to transport payloads throughout the solar system.

From Roscosmos they have also suggested that the tugboat could visit other planets, including Jupiter, to search for extraterrestrial life.
