Interesting. It looks like quite a variety of nuclear designs compared to the past. We definitely need more nuclear power plants, but need them to be safe. Thanks for an informative article.

As usual, they slide over the most important part, i.e., the waste. Every process should list the amount of waste and the severity of the waste. When discussing nuclear power, the most important part is always slid over!

Nah! The waste has to be demoted to "important." the category of "most important" would go to things like safety and type of reactor--whether thermal or fast. Of course, fast reactors have relatively much less amount and severity waste than thermal reactors.
