A whole city in the air, maintained in the air by 20 nuclear propulsion engines, which will have to be reached by plane, as it is designed to never have to land once in the air.


So, are they:

0) Ignorant enough not to realize nuclear reactors need periodic refueling. On a yearly-ish basis for commercial models; military ones can go a few decades, but only by starting with near weapons grade fuel to begin with.

1) Delusional enough to think refueling a reactor is as easy as topping up gas in your car, and thus something that can be done while flying.

2) Sociopathic enough to think that letting 20 nuclear reactors crash into the surface when their fuel is depleted is OK.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius
