    While some men boast of power tools and classic cars in their garage, Carl Greninger likes to show off his nuclear reactor. Yes, you read that right. Behind the hidden door is a working Farnsworth-Hirsch fusion reactor.

    Video at link too


    This is what happens when you have bored engineers....... :D


    But very cool too.

    That might be a way to get off the grid.
    How is obama working out for you?

    Here's a way to establish your own grid, if you are a small city. A no-maintenance bury-and-forget nuclear reactor. It's delivered to the site on a flatbed truck, buried and fired up and puts out enough heat to fire up a fair size steam turbine...........


    The reactors could be planned to run 5, 7 or 10 years with the fuel on board, depending on the final design. Then the reactor, as a whole unit is removed/replaced and returned to the manufacturer to be opened and refueled. No personnel are needed to operate this type of reactor. Just take off the heat and enjoy. Well, thatís too simple.
