Historic AEC Power Reactor R&D Operations Funding

Note the brown trace, for MSRs, versus pale blue for metal-cooled....
" Does not include... propulsion" - the bulk of the MSR program, as part of the ANP project (Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion)

From the blog "Atomic Skies" at http://atomic-skies.blogspot.com/

I wonder what are the 21st century figures. It is time to take up the MSR and fast reactors to clear up the mess left by commercial reactors. Does anyone know what the Chinese, currently the biggest builders, are up to?

As far as I know the chinese want mass produced micro LFTR reactors to be used in mobile applications and semi mobile applications. They are brining it.
