Thorium Point
Jamais Cascio, 5 Jul 05

Wired News just published a brief piece on thorium as a fuel for nuclear reactors. Thorium-fueled reactors would produce about half the waste and 80% less plutonium than uranium-fueled reactors, and thorium is a more abundant element than uranium. The article notes that India is going forward with a thorium reactor this year.

This is the first I've seen about thorium reactors in actual development, so I'm curious if any readers have better resources for information.
