If the Westinghouse mini reactor is legitimate and gets widely  produced it could end the "Endless wars."

Thanks for this news E-Matrix!
This link below, is cleaner (less agressive cookies, plus zero annoying popping up constant ads), plus have images of Reactor.

Unfortunately, I still see it as another polluting machine, a Nuclear Radioactive means to achieve Energy...either through "Fusion or Fission", still same thing.
And it does not show any info on how does it cools down its Reactor Bars?...because, if it needs a huge Diesel Generator (like all other typical Nuclear Reactors works) in order to run the cooling system, plus it also needs to keep dumping that toxic water (or any other coolant liquid) used on the cooling process...then we are all back on the same exact page, except, in a smaller scale.

I'm not sure but based on the article I wonder if they are considering using Thorium as the fuel source instead of Uranium.  Thorium is safer than uranium or plutonium fuel due to passive safety measures.  Thorium dioxide, the form of thorium used in nuclear reactors, has three main safety features: its melting point, stability, and thermal conductivity are all significantly higher than that of uranium oxide.
