neutron chasing

in case you think the buzz around the nuclear industry is a passing fad. The competition for new nuclear sites has already started in earnest.

but here is something that is actually big news: Bechtel is relocating 300 nuclear industry jobs from update NY to Pittsburgh. Think that is not a big deal. In high tech Pittsburgh the highest paid engineers are not doing computer engineering, robotics or biotech.. it's the nuclear engineers. Average annual income for a nuclear enginner in Pennsylvania: $84K. Is 300 net new jobs to the region a big deal? Most states do not have 300 nuclear engineers in total.
