Re: Envisioning the world of 2100

^ Ironically, LFTR (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors) were a dead relic of the 1950's and 60's until Kirk Sorensen of NASA was looking into reactor designs more suited to space travel. He started and then founded Flibe energy to build reactors, inititally focusing on the military market because they have their own seperate certifications (If military reactors had all the red-tape and roadblocks as commercial nuclear powerplants, it would take decades to launch a new submarine).
