Some interesting reading. Actually, all of it is over my
head. It has the ring of science fiction. If James Salsman reads
the entry, I would direct him to footnote 28, about the dangers of
rad exposure, and the rad waste that apparently would be produced.
My guess is that a reactor such as this would be fabulously expensive.
