Safer than nukes- and cheaper too

Molten-salt reactors

Another “disappeared” technology

A reactor using this technology actually operated from January 1965 through December 1969 and logged over 13,000 hours running at full power.

It’s still a “nuke” but it uses a lot less uranium and is a lot safer to operate.

Why didn’t it thrive as a technology?

It doesn’t create material for nuclear weapons – which is what the nuclear power industry was really for in the first place. (That and looting investors.)

The best way to kill something? Make it a National Landmark. The reactor in this video was turned into a landmark in 1994.
