Does anyone have information about new fission power plant that is going to be built in France.
That power plan maybi solve all our energy problems for many years.
A that is not Nuclear power plants.
Ask google for more information.
Thanks for info.
The thorium reactor looks interesting. I don't know if it's the solution we need right now, but I do know that if we don't examine more new energy ideas we will continue to move in a bad direction. We need new fission reactor ideas, and also alternatives to the tokamak technology for fusion. Unfortunately most government research funding is based on continuing lines of research that current scientists have invested most of their career in. A still worse outcome would be throwing a lot of money at any idea with a good story. Balancing the needed original thinking with an intelligent pruning process to avoid excess losses on unworkable ideas is the key to our possible future economic success.
fission as a rule tents to be 20 to 50 years away...
Thorium is now.. And one of the best things about Thorium is that it can eat nuclear waste.
The Chinese are developing it so it will go online....
You have confused fission and fusion. FUSION tends to be 20-50 years away. FISSION has been with us for nearly a century.
Latest News. Saudi Arabia will soon complete the first two reactor nuclear power plant.
And Iran is not allowed.
Indian people are doing wonderful things with Thorium, too. I really hope that the general population of my country (Italy) would change their mind, and allow the government to develop nuclear reactors. We currently pay much more compared to the average in Europe.
I think that Europe will give a huge amount of money in these projects. Energy in Europe's wrong and does not want to be dependent on Russia or the Arabs. A knowledge they have. If they reach the goal, to build the reactor, it will be a new renaissance era for Europe. The energy will be cheap, and will begin to think more seriously about electric cars.
India is another story. They also drastically plenty of energy, but unlike China, have been placed on the margin. And they just is not going to hand, they only supply route through Afghanistan and Pakistan.
I think that India is working on the same reactor, but not as widespread as in Europe. They have a lot of people, but they are dramatically less educated than all of Europe's population.
