Nuclear power is an alternative setup for endgame power generation, trading a much more complex setup for increased energy density compared to conventional burner power. It was introduced in 0.15.0. It might refer to the researched technology, or the overal workings of extraction and processing of Uranium-235 and Uranium-238.
