Show support for a Lego nuclear power plant
A creative fan of Lego—and nuclear power—has designed a nuclear power plant out of the famous building blocks and has submitted the idea to the Lego Group for possible production—but first, the idea needs the support of the public.

USNC-Technologies (USNC-Tech) is an advanced nuclear company focused on developing space nuclear power and propulsion systems to enable high-impact science missions and the growth of a self-sustaining in-space economy. As a subsidiary of Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC), USNC-Tech has leveraged the technologies and experience gains from the design, licensing, and deployment of terrestrial gas-cooled reactors for these space systems. The result is a family of reactor concepts and designs with shared technology bases able to meet near-term and long-term customer needs in the space arena. Key examples include the Pylon surface fission power reactor, the Ready 2 Demonstrate Technology On Orbit (R2DTOO) nuclear thermal propulsion reactor, and the chargeable atomic battery radioisotope heat source.
