3.4.8. Nuclear System Areas
These facilities need to be away of the living areas but not much in order to minimize the wiring and the energy loses. Therefore a berm strategy would allow allocating, inside one ring, three nuclear reactors in individual spaces protected by Martian regolith berms preventing direct exposure of the surroundings to the radiation. Perimeter circulation would provide access to the interior of these spaces. In the accesses are placed the nuclear control room and the cooling tower for each of the reactors inside the berms.
