Lead Story
The Energy of Science
Any country usually starts its infrastructure development with research reactors, used for technology, material and fuel testing, providing resource base. As practice shows, even giving up generation itself doesn’t affect research reactors. Germany is a good example these days: you can find an alternative for NPP in energy and heat production, even though it will be more expensive. While lacking experimental nuclear complex, the level of science and medicine would inevitably decline.
