It is worth a look-see... that's why I posted it. Of course, not everyone would want or need this, but in many situations it'd be viable both economically and in terms of security. A buried reactor is not so easily tampered with without someone noticing, and if it's designed well it could provide years of reliable electric and thermal power.

Tho nuke power has it's obvious downsides, it does have it's advantages as well.. clearly, we just can't keep burning coal forever while we debate how to slow global warming. All options should be regularly reconsidered and examined, especially as the technology improves.

Certainly, there's many situations where the potential for tampering would be extremely minimal... for example, inside of already heavily guarded industrial sites, for example.
