The Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the "spiritual home" of the molten salt reactor, is organizing a workshop on MSRs this coming week (October 4-5), in continuation of the workshop which was held last year:

Thank you, camiel, for posting this. Did people see the agenda?

Kirk, can you please give a thumbnail description of the workshop here? Thank you. The workshop title is "Moving MSRs Forward—The Next Steps". What are the next steps?

Jaro Franta posted this topic: " (Nuclear) Engineering the Future ". The webcast is at Dr. Rachel Slaybaugh. This webcast should be reviewed by members here.

Jaro: When are spaces ever placed after and before quotation marks? The ellipsis is three [ . . . ] spaced periods called points. Written English has standards.

Thank you, Kirk! What a great photo and graphic of Dr. Seaborg. Your presentation has new and promising developments since the EPRI report last year. Professor Barnhardt said to Klaatu, "I have so many questions." (The Day the Earth Stood Still, 2008)

What or which advanced nuclear reactor being proposed in the new innovation environment offers to supply the precursors for targeted alpha therapy? Maybe Flibe (they misspelled FLiBE in the agenda—so much for respect) Energy is the only one. But if the experimental cancer therapy shows good efficacy, that's not a trivial point.

Thank you, Kirk, it is a very interesting presentation.

By the way, not only ORNL is busy with MSRs, but also the IAEA in Vienna has a technical meeting on the "Status of Molten Salt Reactor Technology", from October 31st till November 3rd, 2016:

It's good to see that MSRs are getting more traction, also among respected authorities in this field, such as the IAEA.
