Most experimentation with power sources is dangerous until the technology matures and is refined. This is true of steam engines, internal combustion engines, turbines, jets and rockets. Likewise nuclear. Nuclear technology is maturing though - there have been nuclear powered submarines for many years and Curiosity, the rover now on Mars, is a nuclear powered vehicle. Nuclear power generation will eventually become the safest, cleanest, greenest energy of any predecessors, but maybe not in our lifetimes.
