Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

China leading safe nuclear reactor research

Meet the Pebble Bed Reactor. Its a design some claim is fundamentally safer than any other current nuclear power plant. The concept was invented in America and Germany, but only China is continuing the research (based on German technology).
