I think we all know who to thank for having the political will, aptitude and foresight required to accomplish this feat.  Also something something Solyndra.

Very true, although I haven't rad anything about the waste from Solar power. IE: discarded panels, manufacturing waste, etc. Granted Nuclear has hot fuel rods that stay hot for a very long time.( That's just my limited knowledge)

Solar power is a nice supplement, but we should be building nuclear plants left and right.
