Feds pony up cash to keep National Research Universal (NRU) Reactor running

A reasonably good thing. Medical isotope shortages are nasty (we found that out a few years ago) so kudos for keeping this running.

Today’s announcement of the extension of the NRU is designed to help support global medical isotope demand between 2016 and 2018 in the unexpected circumstances of shortages, and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories will now begin decommissioning the NRU after March 31, 2018.
