The nuclear power sector is seeing a resurgence in innovation, supported by new policies and emerging technologies. BWXT is at the forefront of this nuclear renaissance and is paving a path forward in two of the U.S. government’s top priorities: space exploration and national security. BWXT is currently building a compact nuclear reactor for space shuttles to put an astronaut on Mars and possibly even explore Jupiter’s moons by 2024. Revolutions in nuclear reactors come at the optimal time as the great power competition evolves into space. I have written more on this topic for RealClearEnergy here.
