Build it here, dammit!


A Korean consortium was picked to build Jordan's first small-scale nuclear research reactor, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology said Friday.

"This is the most brilliant achievement so far in the 50-year history of the Korean nuclear industry. The deal will give us a chance to step up as a big-three producer of research reactors along with Argentina and Russia,"

We have obviously dropped out of the research reactor biz, what with all our failures, and bureaucratic entanglements. If we can't get India to build one for us, why not these guys? We should build it on solid, seismic-happy ground, like Port Hope! Then, our union people will be perfectly good to run the thing to the ground, and keep shoveling in fuel. The isotope business doctors will be happy, and all is good for Christmas! :)
