What Miniature Nuclear Reactors Could Mean For The World

The basic idea behind miniature nuclear reactors is that by building a small scale reactor in a modular cube, the system allows for cost savings, better flexibility to move power where it is needed, better protection from terrorists and natural disasters, and a simpler operating design.

1. The ability to easily move nuclear reactors will offer much better protection from terrorists, assuming the terrorists aren't parked by the roadside anxiously awaiting the next miniature nuclear reactor to pass by.

2. Speaking as a responsible gun owner (Kimber 1911 .45), I think that we can all agree that one reason there are so few murders in this country is because howitzer technology was miniaturized to the point where almost anyone on the street can gain access to a .44 Magnum given the proper motivation.

Similarly, expanded use of reactors on naval vessels to power directed energy weapons and railguns clearly makes sense as well.

3. It makes perfect sense. You know what else makes perfect sense? In hindsight? Hundreds of years from now? Or less?
