Glad to see us still plugging away, against the headwinds of thick anti-Nukeness in the US.

To read that by September, they'll be ready to start building the small-type of nuke plant already! That's great!

I think so, anything that's off the computer screen and built can be measured and tested. The fluff on Reddit are just articles by writers, and often never gives us an accurate snapshot.

Most importantly, In case solar and wind, FLOP, and primary electricity makers, we can consider these as prototypes. Especially IF instead of Global Heating we get another ICE AGE, like the Russians have been saying for decades.

I hope we switch from dainty steps to plowing ahead with the newest ones - the article notes one here, and two in China.

We can count on all of the intellectual property being lost to the ChiComs.

One guarantee - we'll keep needing more power!

So I'm fine with wind, solar - but those Nukes are solid, reliable...

And those small ones should be assembly-line reliable.

"You want three? Sure you don't want our four-pack-special?"

That's the convo I want to have happen when a State is considering how to meet its projected power-plant needs!
