I am working on a number of projects at the moment, but nothing has reached the point where I am ready for a post. I wrote an email to Jack Gibbons, requesting a virtual interview. Jack was one of my bosses, during my year at ORNL. He went on to become the Science Advisor to Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1998. Jack is always very diplomatic, but I would like to tease some candid observations out of him on a number of topics. If I can get Jack to open up, he would undoubtedly have some interesting things to say.
My second project is to compile a list of scientists, living and dead, who have supported or support the LFTR/MSR concept.
My third project will be a comparison of the Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor and the LFTR/MSR concepts.
A fourth project will be a further investigation of the current status of research on the potential use of carbon-carbon composites in LFTRs. This might require another virtual interview.
I intend to continue cross posting on Energy from Thorium since Kirk Sorensen and I have common goals.
