Examples of reactor in a Sentence

  1. Jeffrey Lewis:

    The Russianleader claimed the nuclear-powered cruise missilehad an unlimited range, flew at a high speed and was capable of maneuverability that would allowit topierce any missile defense. One of the worlds most respected missile experts, Director of East Asia Nonproliferation Program Jeffrey Lewis, said Tuesday the U.S. tried to develop a similarly powered cruise missile in the 1950s and 60s but abandoned the project because it didnt make sense to put a nuclear reactor inside a missile. It was a technological nightmare and an ecological hazard, Jeffrey Lewis told Fox News. This is not a technology that I think makes a lot of sense for the United States. For whatever reason, the Russians have a different sense, maybe because they treat environmentalists differently than we do in the United States.
