Interactive: Small Modular Reactors - Safe and Cheaper?

For decades, some nuclear engineers have been pushing an alternate technology that they claim could address all the concerns of conventional nuclear reactors. Called Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), these plants,would be inherently cheaper to build and safer to operate than conventional plants.
