The Future of Nuclear Power

SciAm has an interesting web special feature containing a large number of articles regarding nuclear power: Nuclear power as a means to reduce CO emission; new reactor designs; Uranium supplies; the issues and problems associated reprocessing nuclear fuel.

All very interesting from a physics point of view, although with the mix of pros and cons presented in the different articles its hard to get a sense of whether we'll actually end up with a new set of (advanced?) reactors being built.
