It probably could be if done right

The thing is, we have been convinced that building "one huge reactor" at a time is the way to go. This makes containment when something goes wrong almost impossible due to it's size. It would be much safer and have 1000 times better containment qualities if we were to build very much smaller reactors even if it were in higher numbers. Each one should be small enough to contain using only local resources and even if it did melted down it would not do very much damage because of it's limited size.

We would be better off having thousands of small reactors the size of a navy carrier reactor spread well apart from each other than having just a couple "huge" reactors like we do now.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.
