For Thanksgiving, I want to share two cheerful looks into the future of nuclear energy.
First, Robert Hargraves presentation: Thorium, Energy Cheaper Than Coal, on November 9 at the Jones Seminar on Science and Technology at Dartmouth College Here's a link to his book, too.
Second, a link to the Business Wire announcement that Babcock and Wilcox has been awarded Department of Energy cofunding for the mPower SMR (Small Modular Reactors). Small, affordable, and with lots of passive safety features. This may be the reactor of the future.
Have a good Thanksgiving!
