Bill Gates and the US Energy Department to develop small nuclear power reactors that are less expensive, more efficient and 'could power America's energy future

In a tweet Wednesday, the Energy Department wrote: 'Molten salt reactors are getting a reboot,' revealing that their new reactors are less expensive and more efficient than the current ones.
