What type of design is the reactor?
Pressurized Water Reactor
How does the reactor produce usable energy?
HEAT produced from FISSION is used to create STEAM in the secondary that POWERS TURBINES to generate electricity and propulsion.
What are some advantages of reactor power over fossil fuels?
Refueling only twice in the ship's life (every 25 years)
Allows more fuel to be carried onboard for aircraft
Does not produce waste into air that would make it harder for planes to land
