The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Let’s not talk about nuclear ships

You need a degree in physics to understand the subject of nuclear-powered
ships. The technical issues that come with nuclear power at sea are not
easy for an amateur, such as a generalist manager, to understand, and
unless you can chat about why Hyman Rickover didn’t want liquid salt
cooled reactors in 1952, why the positive void coefficient in an RBMK is so
large, and how you can get nuclear weapons out of a thorium reactor despite
the modern myth to the contrary, you don’t begin to understand which
projects are feasible and which are selling snake oil.
