Nuke in your backyard

Coming to a subdivision near you is a small power plant with no emissions.

Portable nuclear reactor

Hyperion Power Generation is promoting a new design for a small scale nuclear power system developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory that is a cleaner greener method of providing electrical power.

“The portable nuclear reactor is the size of a hot tub.

“It’s shaped like a cup, filled with a uranium hydride core and surrounded by a hydrogen atmosphere.

“Sealed in a buried concrete vault, refueled every five years, its steam turbine generates nonstop power for 25,000 homes.”
