Oregon State starts construction on $4.8M nuclear facility
[link to www.sustainablebusinessoregon.com]

[snip]

Scientists from Oregon State University helped found NuScale Power LLC, which is also working on safer and more efficient nuclear energy production. NuScale's technology features what scientists call "passive safety" and uses small, modular reactors.

The new technology that will be tested at OSU uses a “super-hot” nuclear reactor cooled by helium gas instead of water. The reactor would operate at temperatures above 2,000 degrees – about three times as hot as existing reactors.

Great, it's a test facility too.

No worries.. Someone will make an announcement that there is absolutely no danger to the public.

I wonder if the mouthpiece even believes that..?

This is about 3 1/2 hours or so from my house. They do have a nuclear department. It's mostly known as an agricultural school though (plants and farm animals). Strange that we didn't hear about it on our local news.

You would think the local news would be all over something like this.
How often does a new reactor get tested at a local university..?
If it goes well, I expect that they will promote the use of these small reactors everywhere.

Swede posted an article a while back about them.
Seems to be the hope for the future of nuclear power.

Maybe they are keeping it on the down low to discourage protest.
