They had to answer 700 question
I wonder how you can do that properly in just 3 days?
But that's not going to happen because of the politics of shrill earth-firsters and others who don't understand nuclear and who think that every nuclear plant is Fukushima or Chernobyl.
Ensuring that greed doesn't ruin the planet for my grandkids is what keeps me wary of a nuclear answer for our energy needs. I'm sure there are safe ways to store waste so that in 100 years it hasn't leaked and trashed the environment. I'm also sure these ways cost more money than something that barely does the job but keeps the company profits growing year on year and allows the executives to pocket huge bonuses.
That's why I like Aussies! Just like Brits without the whinging! (runs)
Patents are a non-issue unless you plan on commercializing a solution, and if that is the case, you (or the government) could license what is needed.
How do you find out which patents you've touched upon without paying for lawyers? How do you find the money to license said patents before you've made any money from your product?
After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
