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 http://energyfromthorium.com/ 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).
