The Zumwalt-class destroyers are a class of United States Navy Destroyers, designed as multi-mission ships with a focus on land attack. The class is multi-role and designed for surface warfare, anti-aircraft, and naval fire support. They take the place of battleships in filling the former congressi
This article is pertinent to how many experts envision a LFTR (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) producing electricity without the use of water. Excerpted from an article by Principle Investigator Steven Wright In most respects, carbon dioxide is an energy problem. The gas is mixed to varying degrees
Time is running out and we hope you take the opportunity to comment on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Strategic Plan. The deadline is by tomorrow Friday April 4th. If you have not commented here is a video that explains how……it takes just a few seconds….. We belie
Waterworld! Engineering Humanitarian Solutions with Thorium Commentary by Jon Morrow Astronomers, astro-biologists, and science fiction writers have long dreamt of terraforming (geo-engineering) planets and their moons — converting barren and alien wastelands into lush and productive habitats for hu
Thank You to everyone who attended and helped to make this event a huge success.
Julian Rosenman MD PhD
Dr. Julian Rosenman gives lecture on the great potential of Alpha-immunotherapy and its ability to eradicate cancer with the proper delivery system. Alpha-immunoherapy utilizes Actinium 225 which can be produced by a LFTR. Currently, Actinium is rare and very expensive.
Kirk speaks o the crowd at OSU about the need to develop a LFTR and why LFTR, up till now, has not been developed.
Dr. Heather Willauer
Dr. Heather Willauer talks to Ohio State attendees about how her team has successfully turned seawater into jet fuel. The high heat needed for this process could be an application for LFTR.
Dr. Robert Hargraves
Dr. Robert Hargraves makes the economic and humanitarian case for a Thorium based MSR (Molten Salt Reactor)
Dr. Charles Forsberg
Dr. Charles Forsberg of MIT and ORNL explains the benefits of MSRs (Molten Salt Reactors)
Dr. Henry Cialone
