Oregon State University engineers will be testing a new nuclear energy technology that they believe can't melt down.
It will also generate 30-50 percent more electricity with up to half the radioactive waste.
And it would do all this without producing any greenhouse gases.
Researchers say what really sets the reactor apart, is how safe it is.
Unlike most nuclear reactors, OSU engineers say their reactor consistently operates at super-hot temperatures so it would be nearly impossible to melt down.
