Quotes

"I hope some of them do," Reilly said. "I think there are some great ideas out there. But it's not up to me. It's up to them to take that initiative."
...What that research points to is this implicit bias that we all have." In order to close this pay gap, Corbett proposes that "changing the image of engineering could make it clear that engineers do inin fact, contribute to society in a meaningful way. This could go a long way toward opening girls’ eyes to the possibility of a career in engineering. Seeing women who are engineers can make a big difference too."
...Buongiorno sees a market for such plants in Asia, which has a combination of high tsunami risks and a rapidly growing need for new power sources. "It would make a lot of sense for Japan as well as places such as Indonesia, Chile and Africa" he said. Buongiorno said such plants could be built in a shipyard, and then towed to their destinations five to seven miles offshore, where they would...
He said: "The biggest selling point is the enhanced safety. It's very close to the ocean, which is essentially an infinite heat sink, so it's possible to do cooling passively, with no intervention. The reactor containment itself is essentially underwater."
