I read about a new computer simulation that should help in determining new development strategies, and there is the matter of Russia designing new
I'm of the mindset we don't need them, but they can probably still be useful.
What about micro reactors for things like cars or houses?
What about using the fuel to 'burn' in nuclear plants already operational?
What about ADM, there's some safety risks, but it's accepted for some operations, especially deep, dry earth with a real low water table and low
habitation. Maybe Australia could use 'em.
Or how about selling them other nuclear powers? If they don't work right, let them take the risk of wasting the shot.
Perhaps retool them to be part of a multi-warhead deployment system? That way if the individual bang is not so impressive, the combined force might
be worthwhile to employ in case it's necessary.
Of course I don't think it will be necessary, since the chance of a full scale nuclear war seems pretty slim at this point. There's too much to
lose, and not enough to gain by engaging in that sort of scenario.
Any other thoughts?
