Know new nukes

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

I just saw this article in American Scientist on compact power reactors for remote locations.  This one is a 10 MWe sodium cooled with a 30 year reactor core life.  When the fuel is burned up, they plan to remove and replace the core.  Fascinating that nuclear power is making a comeback.  Additional info is at DOE and
