Alan Waltar, nuclear engineer, Past President of the American Nuclear Society: The majority of our citizens are aware of the contributions of nuclear technology to the production of electricity via commercial nuclear power plants. But most are unaware that the impact of this technology is even greater for non-power applications. The world of medicine, agriculture, and modern industry has been substantially improved by the harnessing of radioisotopes, and new applications continue to make major humanitarian contributions to our quality of life.

Charles Till and Yoon Chang provide an excellent history of the development of the Integral Fast Reactor Project and the political decisions to stop this outstanding energy technology in the United States. The world is going to use this technology, while the United States is being deprived due to the ideological decisions of a few.
(Argonne National Laboratory, Yoon Chang) USofA - Fuel cycle for Integral Fast Reactor and pyroreprocessing03.Nov.2018
Dr. Yoon Chang, Senior manager of the Integral Fast Reactor at Argonne National Laboratory describes the Experimental Breeder Reactor II, the Integral Fast Reactor project and pyro-processing for fuel recycling. This can provide near endless power to generate clean, safe electricy.
Van Snyder, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, JPL, Mathematician: Popular discussions about nuclear power eventually get around to at least one of five objections: It's not safe; no one knows what to do about waste; it's too expensive; it leads to nuclear weapons proliferation; or there isn't enough uranium. All of these objections are baseless. It is clearly obvious that nuclear power in the form of safe fast-neutron breeder reactors with on-site electrorefining must be a necessary (and economical) part of the American energy economy. Should the United States develop the technology, or buy it from France, Russia, China and India?
