A colony on the moon almost certainly would require an atomic reactor for power.
The downside is that all the criteria needed to build a fusion reactor are rather difficult to achieve simultaneously.
Solar receivers absorb this concentrated solar radiation and deliver it, in the form of high-temperature heat, to a chemical reactor wherein an endothermic reaction results in the production of solar fuels.
I once worked in the control room of an atomic reactor .
However, as is well known, the reactor began to shut down spontaneously within a few hours.
The plant's reactor No.1 was originally scheduled to go online in July 2004.
And they have reactivated a mothballed nuclear reactor that can produce weapons-grade plutonium.
I think we have more chance of turning it into a light-water fusion reactor .
The organ was placed in a Teflon bag that neutrons can pass through and taken to a research reactor nearby, where it was irradiated with neutrons.
Fossil fuel burning plants could simply place a serpentine reactor as the last component of their emissions clean up and sequester carbon on site.
