(Doug Lightfoot, W. Manheimer, D. Meneley, D. Pendergast, G. Stanford) Canada USofA - Nuclear Fission Fuel is Inexhaustible08.Jan.2020
D. Lightfoot, W. Manheimer, D. Meneley, D. Pendergast, G. Stanford: Nuclear fission energy is as inexhaustible as those energies usually termed "renewable", such as hydro, wind, solar and biomass. But unlike the sum of these energies, nuclear fission energy has sufficient capacity to replace fossil fuels as they become scarce. Uranium could power the world as far into the future as we are today from the dawn of civilization - more than 10,000 years ago. Fast reactors have distinct advantages in siting of plants, product transport and management of waste.
Charles Till and Yoon Chang describe the evolution of the Liquid Metal Reactor, the development of the Integral Fast Reactor. This is a key step to providing plentiful energy for the world for a very long time.
Mary Claire Birdsong wrote a poem dedicated to pioneers in nuclear energy. It was included in a 90th Birthday message to Dr. Theodore Rockwell.
Retired Engineering Manager Theo Schaub is one of many leaders in nuclear energy in Switzerland. In retirement, he walked the network of paths across Europe that lead to Santiago de Compostela. Everyone would benefit from basing their ideas for a better world on facts, science and engineering and spending time outdoors appreciating the beauty of nature.
