"A traditional light water cooled reactor makes a gigawatt in electricity. It's a million times bigger, it's very complicated, and it's designed so it utilizes the fuel very well," McClure says. At the size of the little Martian reactor, things get a lot less fuel-efficient. "But we do have a reactor that is very easy to predict, ...
The sub's reactor design quickly became the basis for the light water reactors we use today. The problem is the uranium in a number of those reactor designs operate at high temperature, requiring a massive amount of water to keep from overheating. If anything--for instance, a natural disaster--disrupts the ...
