Excellent candidate! I'll give him a call and get him right on it.

Seriously, though, whatever team does it will probably need some PhD physicists who have already received NRC grants just to get the necessary licenses.

Look...if a rich guy could single-handedly reform the energy industry and make billions in the process, don't you think it would have been done?

Or a bunch of rich guys...or any government in the world? Or group of governments...If it could be done it would be done.

Apparently there are some technical difficulties that have not yet, and may never, be overcome. Glancing around teh internet I see that hundreds and hundreds of millions are being spent on this and there are promises that we'll see them up and running by 2020.......

**sighs**

...or not.

Soon they'll have it reduced to the size of suitcase and it will power your flying car forever.

Soon...very soon.

Ummm, perhaps you didn't hear of it but Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and a few other rich fellas are already looking into new reactor designs.

Good for them. They'll sink a few hundred million more into the nuclear money pit.

We'll all be dead and in the ground before anything ever comes of it.

If...anything ever comes of it.
