Safe Space Nuclear Power and Propulsion with Paolo Venneri from USNC-Tech

As a child, Paolo Venneri began to notice a theme in his beloved science fiction: All space-faring civilizations relied on an ultimate power source. Growing up in Los Alamos, home to the famous national energy laboratory, Paolo was surrounded by scientists and engineers tackling this very issue.

Eventually, Paolo would too, with his company, USNC-Tech, which develops safe nuclear power and propulsion for space exploration.

Paolo’s ambition is to make the technology commercially available and used for permanent bases on the moon and beyond.
