  1. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    Yes that is correct but the nuclear reactor and the nuclear steam supply system (NSSS) are not the primary driver of cost, and the cost to build a 1650 MWe reactor (Taishan, EPR) is currently no more...
  2. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    I'm saying that high capital costs are a problem, not a benefit. Solar has incredibly low capital costs AND low O&M costs.



    Then you better read it instead of making assumptions about nuclear...
  3. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    And those low O&M costs don't become a benefit until 20 years after reactor completion.



    Backed by MIT's massive 2018 white paper, the analysis of Third Way in Britain, and multiple other...
  4. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    In terms of what we can build right now, immediately, to address climate change? KEPCO/KHNP's APR-1400 is probably the most cost-effective design. It has 18% of the features of most Gen III+ reactors...

    First of all, no they don't. Not easily, at least. All existing reactors will breed minute amounts of Pu-238, 239 (weapons grade), 240, 241, and 242. They are negligible in quantity and...

    The "Theme system" was actually just a method of recruitment that originated under Valentinian II in 386 and was re-implemented by Charlemagne and Nikephoros I. But yes, we have plans for other time...

    Yes, Roman forces will be region-specific. Balkans units will be those stationed in the Balkans, Egyptian units those stationed in Egypt, etc.

  18. Re: 2017 Nuclear accident ..somewhere in Euroasia

    Rosatom has a good track record overall. The government's inherent secrecy is an issue though, but the Mayak release was actually the result of isotope production for French research.

  19. Re: 2017 Nuclear accident ..somewhere in Euroasia

    Yes it was a gaseous release of Ruthenium-106 from the Mayak reprocessing plant (formerly known as Kyshtym). There's a really good write up of exactly how this happened by Nicholas Thompson:...

    You could get a lot better efficiency out of this using a Helium Brayton Cycle, but the Helium shortage is certainly a major issue right now.

  26. Re: Roman troops of the Third Century AD

    D'Amato will have the usual mix of B.S. with actually good reconstruction it looks like. I debate with him quite often. We don't get along but we seem to respect each other at least.
  27. Re: - INVASIO BARBARORVM III -

    The guys here have been kind of sort of making models on and off but it hasn't really progressed much. None of us have the time to commit.
