Black Box Nukes!!

Interesting article at Space Daily on a US proposal to use sealed nuclear reactors to sell to third world countries. If anyone opened the reactor vessel alarms would go off and (presumably) airstrikes would commence.

As the article points out there are several technical glitches but I like the idea. Nuclear power is going to be necessary to get us off fossil fuels but the innards don't need to be accessable.
