Missouri S&T focuses on next-generation reactors

Researchers at the Missouri University of Science and Technology are conducting work that could shape the next generation of nuclear reactors.
The state’s first nuclear reactor was constructed more than 50 years at the Rolla school. Now, researchers there are tracking and measuring the movement of radioisotopes. Their goal is to understand how nuclear fuel pebbles would behave in what are called “fourth generation” nuclear reactors.
