With 435 active nuclear reactors in the world, and 72 new reactors currently
under construction, nuclear energy is an important resource that is here to stay. There are inherent risks

low-Earth orbit, and is co-developing the AstroRad radiation PPE with Lockheed Martin, the prime
contractor of NASA’s Orion Project.
