A global race is underway to send humans back to the moon, with the United States, Japan and China all working to achieve this goal.
To make this possible, infrastructure is needed for astronauts to live and work.
Rolls-Royce is developing a nuclear micro-reactor to meet this need, with the aim of sending it to the moon in 2029.
The UK Space Agency recently announced $62 million in funding for UK companies to build communication and navigation systems for future moon missions, as part of the European Space Agency’s Moonlight program.
