the nuclear reactor must be cooled

if the reactor is not cooled, it quickly collapses


He must consume ice


When the reactor is in the water or in space in the shade - the reactor already has a cooler - the external environment.

it’s not clear how putting a ton of uranium ore in pants will make body health without consequences

In an atmosphere, there a three ways a body will lose heat, convection, radiation and conduction, as i'm sure you know. In space, there is no air to form a convection current, or anything to conduct away the heat, which leaves radiation, the most inefficient form of heat loss. Unlike what you would see in movies, you wouldn't instantly freeze, but would veeeeeeery sslowly lose heat energy. this is why space craft need radiators, to help dissipate the heat and radiate it away. so in space, realistically, you would still need ice, or radiator fins, which would also be cool. i'm otherwise completely for this idea. Also, the requirement of needing to seal the reactor in concrete or something is also a cool idea. this would make it inefficient to just slap a reactor on a rocket. So they should also add rcs (reaction control system) thrusters and allow building with small blocks on large grids annd fins which would eliminate ion thrusters (aka the need for lots of energy) on small to medium large grid spacecraft. since this is basically a brand new suggestion i'm just gonna make this a suggestion and give you credit for your parts (your name and link to this suggestion).
