Now, researchers there are tracking and measuring the movement of radioisotopes. Their goal is to understand how nuclear fuel pebbles would behave in what are called "fourth generation" nuclear reactors.<br>&nbsp; Wed, 17 Apr 2013 15:05:12 +0000 The Associated Press 25516 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Missouri S&T Scientists Work To Shape 'Fourth Generation' Nuclear Reactors
