Rosatom Develops Radiation-Powered Electricity Source for Medicine, Outer Space
Moscow (Sputnik) Jun 23, 2017
Deputy head of the Russia's "Luch" laboratory Aleksander Pavkin said that a small-scale power source created in laboratory will be completely safe with respect to radiation, since the isotope does not emanate neutron or gamma radiation. Russia's "Luch" enterprise, which is part of the scientific division of Rosatom, has created a small-scale power source based on the radioactive nickel-63 (Ni-63) isotope, which could be sustained for up to 50 years with a relatively high output, project participan ... read more
