-Used by NASA, for the "mythical" atomic battery piles.  Despite mainstream media denying the existence of real "atomic" batteries, (beyond TV shows like the million dollar man; the denials are probably more that if we had batteries that took centuries to go flat a lot of battery makers would go out of business) they have been used in various forms for decades by NASA, and Military as power supplies for space crafts to power their radios; and more recently to power the Ion propulsion system used officially by the last deep space probes, and unofficially by mysterious unnamed military vehicles for unknown purposes. Main issue with these is the fact it requires relatively rare radioactive materials, which have nearly all been used up on Earth, and can only be created in liquid Thorium reactors.+Used by NASA, for the "mythical" atomic battery piles.  Despite mainstream media denying the existence of real "atomic" batteries, (beyond TV shows like the million dollar man; the denials are probably more that if we had batteries that took centuries to go flat a lot of battery makers would go out of business) they have been used in various forms for decades by NASA, and Military as power supplies for space crafts to power their radios; and more recently to power the Ion propulsion system used officially by the last deep space probes, and unofficially by mysterious unnamed military vehicles for unknown purposes.
