Wyoming A Finalist For Factory To Build Portable Micro-Nuclear Plants

• Cowboy State Daily

A former engineer who played a key role in launching Elon Musk's Starship rockets into space has his own company now that could bring a thriving industrial base to Wyoming to manufacture and assemble portable micro-nuclear reactors.

The tiny power plants could be used anywhere from mining operations in Wyoming and drilling for energy along the North Slope of Alaska, to powering a huge military radar dish or electrifying a large subdivision of homes.
