Solar power is better than nuclear for astronauts on Mars, study suggests

Solar power would be the superior option over nuclear for crewed Martian missions near the planet’s equator, a new study concludes.

Researchers found that a six-person Red Planet mission could be sufficiently powered by photovoltaic systems, adding on to decades of research on the benefits of solar power as used by robotic NASA Mars explorers such as the Spirit and Opportunity rovers and the InSight lander.
