According to the South China Morning Post, Chinese researchers are carrying out intensive work to develop the world’s smallest nuclear reactor, which may be installed in one of the disputed South China Sea islands. The lead-cooled reactor would measure just 20 feet (6.1 metres) by 8.5 feet (2.6 metres). It  would be capable of generating around 10 megawatts of power, which could supply power to up to 50,000 households and run for decades without the need for refuelling. The power station could go into operation within five years, according to new reports.
