Small nuclear reactors have been described as inherently safe since the late 1950s. Why are they not accepted.
In the late 1950s Alvin Weinberg and Edward Teller both described nulear reactors that are inherently safe, produce little or no waste and require refueling once every 50 years.
Reactors of this type that can fit into a suitcase have been developed by the US military.
These molten salt reactors hold the promise of repalacing fossil fuels and can be produced in their thousands the same way we produce Boeling airliners and at an even less cost.
