NASA does not have enough nuclear fuel producing resources to continue deep space exploration, according to a study by the National Academy of Sciences.

The United states stopped producing plutonium 238 over twenty years ago and bought it’s last batch from Russia.

The Daily Telegraph also says that NASA is the only deep space program in the world.
