  1. Scale is hard to tell, but that cube doesn't appear to be as much as 1 cubic metre, sitting in a deep swimming pool equivalent. I am further assuming that the last few seconds of video are a Geiger counter scan of the camera - showing no detected radioactivity.

    Tell me again; why can't I have a nuclear power plant in my back-yard?

  2. A little research, and that reactor is a TRIGA (Training, Research, Isotopes, General Atomics) pool-type reactor. (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIGA )

    Designed to be "safe even in the hands of a young student."

    So, again I ask: Why can't I have a nuclear reactor in my back-yard?
