Thanks to another aNONradiator, stug, host of “Flux” (Thursdays at 2000 UTC), I spend most of the show ruminating on the process of engineering design. In the process, I give a word–picture of my own pet design for a small nuclear “package power” plant, suitable for ship propulsion or modest shore–side requirements. Also, a change in policy on the part of data center operators which is really little more than a change in framing ; and the question of what constitutes “sustainable” aviation fuel.
