         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.
