Russia and China are considering putting a nuclear power plant on the moon between 2033 and 2035, according to Yuri Borisov, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. He commented that it could one day provide an opportunity to build a settlement on the moon.

The head of Roscosmos, Yuri Borisov, said that they want to build a nuclear power plant on the moon. Electricity will be produced there. However, the United States fears that Russia is planning to develop a new type of nuclear weapon. The weapon that will be used to destroy the satellite. Borisov, however, made it clear that they have no plans to build nuclear weapons on the lunar soil.

In June 2021, China and Russia signed an agreement. It was agreed that the two countries would help each other in space research and participate in joint projects. China continues its space research. Within a few days, they will send the Chang’e 6 autonomous vehicle into space. This vehicle will collect rock samples from the lunar soil.

The US space agency NASA has been planning nuclear power generation on the moon for a long time. In fact, power was generated from a nuclear generator after the Apollo 12 moon landing. The electricity is also used for research purposes.

Usually, all research work is done on the moon with the help of solar power. But there is a lunar night for 14 days. It is not possible to generate solar power at that time.

Russia says its nuclear power plant will solve that problem. Nasa also said earlier that by 2026 they will arrange to make nuclear power on the moon.
