Since this month, the Nuclear Research and Consulting Group (NRG) has been testing a ThoriumMolton Salt Reactor (TMSR) in Petten, the Netherlands. It is the start of the first of several experiments in a test reactor with the goal to produce data that will support the TMSR development.
Since the early seventies, the NRG researchers have been the first to investigate the possibilities of a molten salt reactor with Thorium instead of Uranium.
Fusion proces: Because of a phenomenon known as quantum tunneling, the hydrogen atoms smash into each other and fuse into helium.
Is Fusion the answer for the new energy world? Scientists create hydrogen plasma, what the sun is made of.
Max Planck researchers finally succeeded in building this breakthrough reactor. And for the first time, the scientists have successfully created hydrogen plasma, the key component to nuclear fusion, and held it in a contained environment. Read More
Nuclear Fusion is inspired by the sun. Is this the holy grail at the end of the energy process?
Lockheed Martin believesfusion energyis the future. In their opinion fusion energy is the ultimate form of renewable power. For scientists and engineers the sun is their inspiration because it is the biggest natural fusion reactor we know.
