This subreddit is devoted to the discussion of thorium as a future energy resource, and particularly the machine to most safely and efficiently extract that energy – the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR), pioneered by American nuclear physicist Dr. Alvin M. Weinberg.
>"It was a successful technology that was dropped because it was too different from the main lines of reactor development.. I hope that in a second nuclear era, the technology will be resurrected." - Alwin Weinberg
Thorium energy can help us
check CO2 emissions and global warming
cut deadly air pollution
provide safe and inexhaustible energy
increase human prosperity
All thorium and LFTR related news and discussions are welcomed here.
