China activates world’s first “clean” reactor in September

Chinese government scientists have announced plans for the first experimental reactor of its kind that does not require water for cooling.

Liquid-operated prototype molten salt reactor thorium rather than uraniumIs expected to be safer than traditional nuclear reactors because thorium cools and solidifies as soon as it is exposed to air. In short, potential leaks emit far less radiation into the surrounding environment than leaks from traditional reactors.
