Energy crisis? What energy crisis? You’ll be laughing all night in your floodlit garden under the gaze of your jealous fossil-fuel using neighbours once you’ve got Hyperion’s clean, safe and portable backyard nuclear reactor up and running!
Yes indeed; using good clean water as both moderator and coolant, the Hyperion reactor simply cannot become a runaway reaction, and the uranium hydride fuel is useless for making weapons with – so you’ll not get any politically-motivated sanctions imposed on you by coalitions of powerful nation-states!
The Hyperion reactor will start shipping in the summer of 2013, so start saving now! Or alternatively take out a loan based on the projected amount of energy you’ll be able to sell back to an increasingly desperate and expensive national grid – provided you can find a bank that’s guaranteed not to collapse, or a cooperative government administration to bail you out when the worst happens.

[ 2 – You may want to consider researching financial institutions based in China or other Asian nations. ]

What kind of energy output is this expected to provide? Also is it April 1st?
From Hyperion’s website:
Looks pretty genuine, though a lot can happen in five years.
That is absolutly brilliant. I look forward to hearing more about it as time goes on.
nuclear energy for civil purposes is really good and this idea i am sure can help in coping up of energy crisis..
So, how can I convince my anti-nuke hippie neighbors in Santa Monica that this would be an excellent thing for our city? Five of these and we’re set.
