How might Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors fail, or be attacked by terrorists? Can’t have core meltdowns, loss of coolant, or high pressure explosions…
Solving Technical Challenges in Building a Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor. Many were solved in the 1960s, building the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment. Others have been solved since then. We still need to make engineering decisions, and test materials.
How big a project will Manufacturing LFTRs be? Definitely much smaller than any other type of nuclear reactor we’ve built!
