The Military Times is reporting the Pentagon is moving forward on a plan to build and test portable micro nuclear reactors to power military bases overseas and in remote areas in the U.S. despite warnings about high risks involved. In 2018, the Army published a list of possible sites where the micro nuclear reactors could be deployed. Sites named included Guantánamo Bay, Diego Garcia, Guam, Fort Buchanan in Puerto Rico and Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
