    Thanks to NeoMarxists, there hasn't been a single new reactor built in the USA in 30 years, you think we're just going to lob one onto the "pristine" surface of the Moon?

    Idaho Samizdat: Nuke Notes: What’s a small reactor like you doing in a market like this?

    Never say never.

    Cheney and the Republicans worked for years to limit our energy policy to big oil. This was why Cheney had to fight off lawsuits for secret illegal meetings. Lawsuits that went all the way to the Supreme Court. It's a new day. Who's to say what will not or will happen.

    Looking at the article, I noted that the least cost is $2 a watt. This is about the same as present Wind costs, and much less than present Solar costs. However, since these are projected costs, and probably quite opitimistic, they are more than the projected Solar costs for several differant Solar technologies in development. That is head-on with dirty coal, and far less than 'clean' coal.

    These units would be a welcome addition to the array of clean technology.
