typically nasa and other nations' space agencies use nuclear batteries, deriving electricity from decaying fissal material...

a reactor would provide long term electricity, but it will be much more dangerous than batteries.

terrestrial reactors rely on water for cooling and power generation through conversion to steam... which probably isn't going to work on the moon.

this might just be a puff project to line the pockets of the lowest bidder.
