The National Nuclear Lab Exceptional expertise unique infrastructure nuclear materials and strategic partnerships converge at INL the nations nuclear energy laboratory. INLs world-class capabilities and vertically integrated infrastructure support a science-based approach experimentation theory modeling and simulation and first-of-a-kind demonstration. This approach provides technically achievable economically competitive and environmentally sustainable options for the entire nuclear enterprise. TechnologyADVANCING NUCLEAR ENERGY Powering Mars Science Lab NASAs Mars Science Laboratory which launched successfully in November is carrying the most advanced payload of scientific gear ever used on Mars surface below. Those instruments are getting their lifeblood from a radioisotope power system assembled and tested at INL left. The Multi-Mission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator provides a continuous source of heat and power for the rover Curiosity to complete its expedition in Mars extreme temperatures and seasons. The power system provides about 110 watts of electricity and can run continuously for many years. 20
