Bill Gates Briefly Mentions LFTR–I Think!

Boy, sometimes someone mentions something to a group of people that give a concept a level of credibility no money could buy:

13:28 — “there are some innovations in nuclear…modular, liquid…”

23:10 — “there’s a liquid-type reactor, which seems a little hard…but maybe they say that about us.”

Here’s the original link to the TED site.

    Mr. Gates was talking about liquid sodium reactors; I do not think these are the same as liquid fluoride reactors. Also the fuel to be use was the common isotope of uranium, not thorium.
