Space Research Centre to lead radioisotope power source project

Leicester University is leading the development of radioisotope power sources that could help future space probes investigate distant and inhospitable environments. A team from the Department of Physics and Astronomy’s Space Research Centre have built the first prototype 10W RTG (radioisotope thermoelectric generators) and 3W RHU (radioisotope heater units) that will use electrical heating to … Continue reading Space Research Centre to lead radioisotope power source project
