Cornell.  Amit Lal gets a prototype of a nuclear micro-generator working.  A generator of this type could power a small device for a decade.  This is some of the most exciting technology in play today.

The prototype shown in August was gigantic by comparison with the latest versions, Lal said. An entire device, including a vacuum enclosure, could be made to fit in less than one cubic millimeter, he said.
