  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    “The Indians have their own designs of heavy-water reactor (PHWR) which have similar issues…” If I remember my history correctly it’s actually a fork off the CANDU design. They were buying CANDUs until the Canadians cut them off after the...
