A new nuclear energy concept is being tested at Oregon State University.  It is called a high temperature reactor.  Project Director Brian Woods says it uses helium for cooling and is cleaner than the old water-cooled models. He adds, these reactors will do more than make electricity; it will also reduce carbon emissions and reduce greenhouse gasses.  The $4 million project is funded by grants from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and testing begins in April.
