The New York Times is carrying an interesting article entitled 'A New Scale for Nuclear Power' which we think is well worth the read. The theme is about the use of multiple small reactors as oppose to the traditional methods of construction which require a football field or two to accommodate their size.
Apart from the technological advances in the nuclear space a smaller, cleaner, better looking power plant would go a long way to being accepted by the public when the proposal to build a new plant enters the planning phase. Having an ugly monstrosity on your door step is difficult to accept so the way forward could be one of numerous small power plants located close to the end user. It doesn't change the fact that it is a 'nuke' and that the environment still needs protection but maybe the environmental impact on one particular area of the countryside will be lessened.
