Molten Salt Researchers at Oak Ridge

Dick Engel, Syd Ball & James Crowley joined us for dinner to discuss their work on Thorium Molten Salt Reactors at ORNL.

Why are molten salt reactors important? Were there any significant challenges? Why was the program shut down?

Such discussion between 10 dinner participants was captured on many SanDisk Sansa Clip+ MP3 players loaded with RockBox (open source) custom firmware.

The video was captured for use in new iteration of Thorium Remix, a documentary about Thorium Molten Salt Reactors (and particularly LFTR - the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor).
