I wasn't expecting a afternoon promo video from Lockheed that starts with a dubstep intro either but that's what their Skunkworks project just dropped on us. Lockheed expects to be able to build a prototype compact reactor in five years. If everything goes well, the design could "be developed and deployed in as little as ten years." If they pull this off then they say we could have truly clean energy, one that we can export without fears of it being turned into a military weapon, and that it could be as small as a jet engine (and literally be put on a jet to power it), as well as scale up to much larger sizes, plug into the existing grid and "The 100-MW unit would provide sufficient power for up to 80,000 homes in a power-hungry U.S. city."
