Fluoride Reactors and World Resources

While cleaning up the “Document Repository” I find fantastic papers written back in the hey-day of the fluoride reactor work at ORNL. This one from 1971 is really neat…an examination of the resources of the world and how they might be affected by the large-scale development of power from thorium-fueled fluoride reactors.

I love it when people think big like this.
