Sandwhiched Orb/Grid Heat Exchanger

The design basis of the heat exchanger is that the most efficient geometrical shape to thermally stabilize during exposure to heat or to neutron exposure is a sphere.  This invention incorporates the preferential geometry of the sphere into the structure of heat exchangers to maximize the surface area for cooling purposes.
