What do you get when you cross a particle accelerator with a nuclear reactor?   No, not Jeremy Clarkson’s gob, as one Twitter wag claimed (I’m looking at you, @CorporateGorila).

Radio 4 will be discussing this technology in Costing The Earth: Nuclear Power Without The Nasties, on Wednesday 29th February: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01cjwv1
