    “Hyperion Nuclear Power Generator”

    I got the scoop from a post at NextBigFuture.com. This looks very cool:

    Hyperion Power Generation, Inc., (HPG) with the assistance of Los Alamos National Laboratory, is developing and commercializing a small, factory-sealed, mass-produced, transportable nuclear power module that is uniquely safe and proliferation-resistant. The technology utilizes and builds upon similar features of the 60+ TRIGA training reactors that have been safely operated for years in universities and laboratories around the globe.
    […]
    Three factories, spread across the globe are planned by the company to produce and ship the approximately 4,000 units of the first design.
    […]
    Each unit produces 70 megawatts of thermal energy, or 27 megawatts of electricity when connected to a steam turbine. That amount is enough to provide electricity for 20,000 average-size American-style homes or the industrial equivalent.

    I would like to see safe distributed nuclear power around the globe to power the grids.

    Attention Entrepreneurs: More of this, and faster please!
