"In a so-called 'breeder reactor' plutonium is used instead of the rare fissile uranium. The situation in a breeder reactor is like a culture of yeast: to produce more plutonium, one needs an amount to start with, as well as a large quantity of non-fissile uranium, which is easy to get. Together they breed new plutonium, like straw into gold. "
