I'm sure we will.
I'd prefer fusion but, we're not there yet. Not that we won't be in the fairly near future.
Still, I'm betting fission reactors will be the first to power bases on the Moon and Mars.
Fusion reactors are still experimental and fission is tried and true.
It'd be nice to see some sort of permanent installation on both the Moon and Mars within the decade. Probably not manned, but a permanent functional structure of some kind.

Yeah, they are getting close. Still it'll probably be awhile before they're functional enough to be entrusted to power a space mission, space station, or a base etc.

I heard they are getting close to generating fusion.
