Thorium Nuclear Unlimited Energy Make A Comeback | Worlds shocked
The nuclear power option that was explored in the 1950s and then forgotten: thorium. Some people say it’s much better than the uranium reactors we use today and we should give it another chance. Thorium is a heavy element that can be mined from the earth and used in fission reactors like the ones we have now. Both thorium and uranium create heat by a controlled chain reaction that drives a steam turbine and a generator to produce electricity. The difference is in how they do it. Uranium fissions directly when it is hit by a neutron, releasing energy and more neutrons that hit other uranium atoms. Thorium doesn’t fission right away when it is hit by a neutron.
