Bathtub sized portable Nuclear Fission reactor


sfreporter.com

The portable nuclear reactor is the size of a hot tub. It’s shaped like a sake cup, filled with a uranium hydride core and surrounded by a hydrogen

The company Hyperion Power Generation was formed last month to develop the nuclear fission reactor at Los Alamos National Laboratory and take it into the private sector. If all goes according to plan, Hyperion could have a factory in New Mexico by late 2012, and begin producing 4,000 of these
reactors.

Yeah i wonder how loaded you'd have to be to get one of these. I also wonder if any un used power would be fed back into the grid.

Ahh but there in lies the gold. Under federal law the govt MUST buy any excess power you supply to the grid... so you could subsidize some of all of your costs depending on how much you dump back in...
