Is this for real (or did I just make a fool of myself)?

It's a dupe or a scam.

That's what I figured, but someone sure went to a lot of trouble for a hoax.

Most far-fetched idea could be an electric car charged with electricity produced from thorium fuel. The French have electric trains getting their power from nuclear power stations.

Please note that this is not a nuclear reactor in a car. It claims to have a totally different technology. So this is not a matter of scaling a reactor down to car size.

I do note that on another site, a poster said that GE took the article off their site. So maybe GE figured it was not kosher.
