Very awesome, are there any problems that nuclear power cannot solve?

That was terrible and you should feel terrible.

Also, this is pretty awesome, and offsets a lot of the biggest problems with nuclear waste, now if only we could get rid of the last 1%...

That actually looks really, really cool.

I couldn't quite tell from the article, though; have they actually finished the invention they were talking about (that makes this possible), or are they still working on it? I got the impression they weren't quite done, in which case I am sending them happy thoughts in hopes they can make it work.
There's a method to my madness. Somewhere. Don't worry, I'll find it!

Now, if they would just swallow their egos, and plan a fusion reactor that will use a fission reactor to obtain Profit, there'd be no more complaining...
