Small modular reactors (SMRs) are defined as nuclear reactors that generate three hundred megawatts or less. There has been a lot on interest and investment in developing these reactors as a better choice for the use of nuclear power to offset carbon emission than construction of more big conventional nuclear power reactors now in use.
As a 90s tween, my friends and I would drag my boom box out to the front porch to dance. It was often to oldies songs, but we also loved rock and pop--especially Roxette. We had our own dance to "Dangerous," as well as "She's Got the Look." My favorite of all time, however, wasn't the popular "It Must've Been Love," which many people have applied to their own lives at some point, but "Fading Like a Flower," which I still consider one of the most gorgeous songs ever written.

Most of my posts about nuclear energy concern the generation of electricity. Other uses such as creation of isotopes used in medical diagnosis and treatment or for the generation of heat for residential and business buildings. Today I am going to talk about several other possible uses of nuclear energy.
My last post was about computer modeling of currents in tokamak plasmas. This post will be addressing computer modeling of the effects of laser beams on plasmas in a different approach to nuclear fusion.
