Gates helps South Korea get nuclear-power

by on21 August 2012

New less radioactive reactor

The man who gave the world Windows and Steve Ballmer is planning to give the South Koreans something radioactive.

Gates is interested in developing a reactor which leaves far less radioactive waste. Gates met with the head of the Korean Nuclear Society, Chang Soon-heung, in Seattle and agreed to cooperate in the development of a sodium-cooled fast reactor.

SFRs are next-generation nuclear technology that use spent nuclear fuel rods from conventional reactors. This is not the first time that Gates has been involved with nuclear power. In 2010 he invested $35 million in a nuclear-power venture company TerraPower.

Of course he was involved with Vista and Windows ME which was an operating system which was famous for melting down all the way to China.
