Powers a ship on its journey between stars. Takeoff requires a long powerup process that is likely to attract raiders.

A ship reactor is a ship part needed to take off. Activating the reactor causes 15 days of raids but must be done to launch, creating the primary challenge of the Ship launch ending.
Ship reactors require the Starship reactor research project to be completed in order to be constructed. Each requires 350 Steel, 280 Plasteel, 70 Uranium, 8 Advanced component, 65,000 ticks (18.06 mins) of work, and a Construction skill of 8.
It has a 15-day activation time, during which the colony will be attacked by many raids. The raids will stop once the reactor is fully activated. It can't be built under a roof, but you can build a roof above it afterwards.
The reactor may be powered on despite the rest of the ship not being built yet. This currently can be exploited since building the whole ship first will increase your colony's wealth, increasing the strength of raids.

It can also be used to power a base like a normal generator, constantly providing 1000W regardless of conditions, though its cost and size makes it extremely inefficient for such even in the endgame.
