Mini Nuclear Plants...

..... look to be just around the corner; they are even taking advance orders already! No bigger than a large hot tub, and creating enough power to support up to 20,000 homes, the full story is from PhysOrg.

Perhaps in a few years time there will be a matchbox box sized version suitable for generating the power just for one property? The mind boggles!

Some of the concerns regarding the proliferation of major nuclear installations include disposal and terrorist action, from detonation to theft of materiel.

I am unsure how these would be eased with a Radio Shack nuke in a DeLorean boiler that uses radioactive fusion rather than bana peels.
