What do you do in your shed? Nuclear power generation...

Shedman has always been fascinated by that image from the black and white footage of atom bomb tests where a shed is blown away in the blast, so he felt a certain irony when he read the following:

From The Observer Sunday November 9th
'Nuclear power plants smaller than a garden shed and able to power 20,000 homes will be on sale within five years, say scientists at Los Alamos, the US government laboratory which developed the first atomic bomb.

The miniature reactors will be factory-sealed, contain no weapons-grade material, have no moving parts and will be nearly impossible to steal because they will be encased in concrete and buried underground'
