Pretty much the same thing I said on the weapon side with a couple of minor differences. It's been over 20 years since I was a nuclear reactor operator in the Navy, so I've forgotten a few details. As to the explanation of the speed of assembly, I really think this is actually irrelevant because a reactor by it's design cannot achieve critical geometry in sufficient mass for a runaway reaction. However, I think we are just splitting hairs at this point.
