Zen 1172: Thorium seems to be a good idea

I kept waiting for the "but" and it didn't happen. My knowledge of nuclear fuels is nowhere near good enough to question the assertions made here, but this chap is certainly a very compelling speaker. He's talking about Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactors, asserts that they are ridiculously safe and says that you can hold a lifetime's supply of energy in a ball of thorium that would fit in the palm of your hand. All these seem like good things and I thought you might be interested.

  1. Impressive. But dilithium crystals are still better.
