For thos who know what this is.. Why is it not currently our main power source on earth?

Ye, the nazis saw the potential back in the day, though at the time they used it to make bomb-grade Uranium;

Re: Thorium !! Infinite source of nuclear power found.
After reading the wikipedia article OP, I am also a little confused as to why all reactors weren't thorium based. Aside from the initially higher costs the benefits would far outweight the negatives.

It's either all about money or all about the fact that once in place the running costs are far too low to con the masses into paying for higher priced energy.

Shame really.

Uranium is more abundent and I think easier to extract. Thorium is easier to weaponise. Thorium is the way forward if we're going to stick with nuclear though.

Re: Thorium !! Infinite source of nuclear power found.
Iran has one of the biggest Thorium sources. Ofcourse it will become the future. They know they do not need oil to live in the future... so they trade it in precious metals. etc. We will not have a choise but nuclear in the future so its about freggin time we develop better technology.

Thorium is safe and plentiful and is the way to the future.

Re: Thorium !! Infinite source of nuclear power found.
It is very simple Children.
New Zealand had a Thorium reactor for a while to investigate the production of U233 for producing nuclear weapons.
As you all know, U233 is bread from Thorium 232 by neutron capture. It can be then be separated chemical to provide small critical mass weapons, but U234 has a high capture cross section and is not easily fissile.
The U232 handling issues are another problem, making pit design complicated, but worth the effort if you can reduce the U232 below 200ppm.
Plutonium is easier to work - but more deadly.

Dreaming of Thorium reactors? lol!

Nuclear power = heat source to boil water and make steam. This cant be the best we can do, Steam power with a hotter heat source? come on people try harder.

My bad, it seems there is more Thorium in the earths crust, I couldn't find figures for how much is extractable. As for weaponisation, I'm not sure how to include images in a post but check out this;

[link to www.ourprg.com]

the thorium taken from the ground will readily absorb Neutrons and after a month decay, naturally into U233.

Thorium is a WASTE BYPRODUCT of rare earth metal mining!

We have a closed rare earth mine in eastern California.

Re: Thorium !! Infinite source of nuclear power found.
Well Children, NZ obtained its thorium as a waste product from a Monazite Mine in Australia, which purified beach sands for rare earth extraction.
Byron Bay.
Be careful if you go to Byron bay, the Australians made their houses and filled in the foundations of their buildings and roads with the waste.
You can get 50 microSieverts per hour walking down past the local cafe.

Re: Thorium !! Infinite source of nuclear power found.
Talking of weapons, I see that your Pantex crews are pushing for another 'sub-critical test' in Nevada.
Perhaps you are increasing your yields for those experimental Iraqi weapons?
