Modular Nuclear Energy

Modular Nuclear Energy
The governor candidate job interviews found on the Knowledge Box page were excellent. Ronchetti mentions modular nuclear reactor systems for localized electricity production of which I have been a strong proponent. These basically are similar in size as to what are found on our nuclear powered Naval Fleet. 
A friend was a nuclear physicist at Sandia Labs and he explained that not one of them has ever had a threatening problem and if one were to experience a meltdown its smaller size would allow the earth beneath it to easily absorb the heat. The beauty of these systems is they avoid long distance transmission lines that experience a line loss of electricity simply due to the resistance of the wire as it travels to its distant destination.
