Have you ever been in a blackout? I have seen the results of centralized power distribution when it fails. Remember the Great Northeastern Blackout of 2003? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeast … ut_of_2003

Re: The Moon Treaty of 1979 - Turning Curse into a Blessing

There is no actual treaty banning Nuclear power in space. The issue is public fears that an accident could cause chaos especially on launch.

We have launched many RTG power sources and there has been public protests.

Though on the Moon nuclear is not really a concern we have much more effective source of power in the form of Solar but it will be a source of radioactive materials.

Russia has taken a different view. “The matter of regulation of these mining activities is still a very thorny issue,” Dmitry Rogozin, director general of Roscosmos, said during a session of the Global Space Exploration Conference 2021 in St. Petersburg, Russia, June 15.

The Law Concerning the Promotion of Business Activities Related to the Exploration and Development of Space Resources was passed by the National Diet of Japan, the new space startup ispace said and welcomed the law.
