Terrapower, a company founded by Bill Gates is discussing with China for a new design of nuclear reactors. The fourth generation nuclear reactors research will cost about one billion dollars over five years, that’s an one followed by nine zeros. The plan is to produce less nuclear waste, be safer and cheaper. Terrapower also talked to other nuclear nations, India and Russia, for the new design which is called traveling wave reactor. The reactors will be disaster proof, they will be designed to be resistant to natural disasters like tidal waves and earthquakes. We all want to avoid another incident similar to what happened to Japan. What will come first then, the fourth generation of nuclear reactors or the cloned woolly mammoth?
