Well, maybe the rock named after him. But the problem with this documentary is that it HATES uranium, and forgets that IFR’s have the same advantages of thorium reactors and can burn uranium waste. Indeed, Integral Fast Reactors have an advantage over thorium reactors in that we have real, engineered prototypes that worked successfully for decades, survived a number of meltdown scenario tests, and yes: fissioned nuclear waste down to 10% of its mass. Not only that, GE have the S-PRISM ready to go for any country that will build it.
Uranium: it’s not a dirty word.
So while cautioning against the anti-uranium sentiments in this half hour documentary, I say go for it! Their enthusiasm is catchy, and if they actually make thorium reactors cheaper than IFR’s, then we all win anyway.
