Gotcher Pluto…nium fix right here!

U.S. demonstrates production of fuel for missions to the solar system and beyond. 50 grams of plutonium-238 doesn’t sound like much, but it’s the first batch of plutonium we’ve produced in 30 years. They plan to ramp up to 3 pounds of plutonium per year (27 times 50 grams).

This is very good news for future deep space missions.
