Washington – Investing more in nuclear-powered spacecraft can help the US to stay ahead of the competition with nations like China, according to experts at NASA.

“Strategic competitors including China are aggressively investing in a wide range of space technologies, including nuclear power and propulsion,” said Bhavya Lal, NASA’s senior advisor for budget and finance, at the congressional committee hearing, called “Accelerating deep space travel with space nuclear propulsion”.

“The United States needs to move at a fast pace to stay competitive and to remain a leader in the global space community,” she added.
