The Ground can take as much heat, as you are willing to run Pipes thru
to get the surface area for your Heat Dump...  It is all about how much
you want to SPEND.....

Finally a power source for my orbital mind control lasers.  I had been
trying to buy a used r=Russian nuclear submarine but it's been difficult.  
Now we just wait for one of those nuke-fridges to go on ebay!

I would like to read more about the technology they are using.  At that price
point, I can certainly see them being attractive for military use.  For civilian
use, I imagine licensing would cost as much as the plant itself, and be a deal
killer.

The "small" nuclear plants that I am acquainted with take at least an 8-man crew
24/7 for operations.  In addition, you would need a considerable
administrative/engineering staff just to handle training and government
paperwork. The training costs for each watchstander go into the hundreds of
thousands, and (once trained) keeping them happy becomes an expensive problem.
