Are Mini-Reactors The Future Of Nuclear Power? http://www.kunc.org/post/are-mini-reactors-future-nuclear-power The U.S. government is investing millions of dollars in what it considers a promising new industry for American manufacturing: nuclear reactors. The plan is to build hundreds of mini-reactors, dot them around the U.S. and export them overseas.<p>Development of these reactors are already in the works, and at one office park in Lynchburg, Va., where one of these reactors is being assembled, the traditional signs of nuclear reactors are nowhere to be found.

He struggles with a basic truth: For all the scientific acceptance of evolution, many Americans simply don't believe it is factually accurate.<p>And when Tennessee lawmakers passed a <a href="http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/107/Bill/SB0893.pdf">measure</a> allowing teachers to question accepted theories on evolution and climate change in the classroom, Cone acted.
