Comment Fancy? (Score 1) 277

Not sure what the poster means by "fancy" when referring to the liquid flouride thorium reactor. It may be a novel concept to many folks, but if anything it's simpler compared to a light water or pressurized water reactor design. (Or any other solid fuel design, for that matter.)

They know that they'll have plenty of radioactive material with which to fuel deep space craft due to their development of liquid fluoride thorium reactors. (That and they'll have limitless electricity as a cool byproduct...) See energyfromthorium.com Currently China is the only state actively pursuing LFTR development, though it was invented in America at the Oak Ridge National Lab.
