Beyond the basic designs on how nuclear reactors work, new thinking is emerging on how to use nuclear power. Creating small buried nuclear reactors that can power whole villages for many years or nuclear facility designs that blend in with their surroundings better are just a couple of examples of the expanding design activity for nuclear reactor complexes.
