asteroza + plutonium   4

GERA Technical Papers | GERA.co
Nuclear piston engine, using gaseous "fuel" and hydrogen gas moderator, with neutron reflector piston and cylinder. Uses piston top-dead-center compression effects and a "spark" (external neutron source, like an ADSR particle accelerator neutron spallation target, or some sort of cylinder wall embedded neutron source). Wonder if LiquidPiston reverse wankel would also work well here. Negative void coefficient is nice too.

Scientists learn to 'declaw' plutonium
Contaminate plutonium laced nuclear fuel with americium, to make the fuel WMD proliferation resistant. I wonder if this only applies to conventional PWR/BWR reactors, and not some types of breeder reactors...
