+ - Bill Gates to help China build traveling wave nucl->

Submitted by BabaChazz
BabaChazz (917957) writes "Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates says he is in discussions with China to jointly develop a new kind of nuclear reactor. During a talk at China's Ministry of Science & Technology Wednesday, the billionaire said: "The idea is to be very low cost, very safe and generate very little waste." Gates backs Washington-based TerraPower, which is developing a nuclear reactor that can run on depleted uranium.

TerraPower is a spinoff from Nathan Myhrvold's Intellectual Ventures.

I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few simple heuristics you have to remember... Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.

Working...
