Description (ca. 1921):

Cobbled together from existing steam technology and attempts at mimicking Marie Curie's famed research, a generation of efficient steam reactors of questionable stability has been popping up all over the place, including in Rochester as part of the New Steam initiative - the Marie Curie Steam Reactor being one example. While the energy-producing ability of early nuclear-steam reactors is indisputable, many have expressed concerns over the potential threat of radiation.
