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).

Will it work out? The Chinese will find out. Then maybe we can pay them for technology we invented. If we have any money left after our wind farms and solar plants rust away to dust.
